Despite out schedule being off pretty much the ENTIRE week, we did accomplish a little bit of "school". This week is not one I will fondly remember at all, but I will remember it as a week that changed us forever... and, despite the difficulties there were always the blessings that shone through.
Last night we took the time to attend a church basketball game. Our church is small. We are a close church family. Walking into the gym and being greeted warmly and just laughing for the entire game and cheering for the youth was FUN. They encourage everyone to wear a crazy hat... even my husband pulled out the Cat in The Hat for the occasion.
While the game was 30 minutes away and the weather was yucky, it was SO WORTH IT.
She won a great little card game about the Presidents... I had never seen it before and it's great. That wins the award for Favorite Resource this Week! We also watched the State of The Union address this week with Miss B and talked her through the complicated hour. Explaining this to a ten year old really makes the whole thing look kind of absurd - and so very removed from REGULAR Americans.
