This week has been off beat, off schedule, full of surprises, and lots of fun.
Monday - We were expecting friends from out of town to stay the night. We ran around all day preparing their sleeping spaces, pulling out the best towels and wash cloths, and buying food to host them. DD9 couldn't understand why all the fuss so she got an impromptu lesson on what it means to be hospitable. Two other mutual friends stopped by during the visit and all in all we had 12 kids between us. So much fun! So this day we will call all day PE.
Great women! Can you tell I was trying to hide?
Kids were asked to give the craziest pose:
Tuesday & Wednesday were a blur as we were sleeping late and recovering from Monday. I think I went over some math problems, there was a piano lesson and we are attempting to make it through the 5 hour BBC movie Elizabeth R. Great story of the life of Elizabeth I as we are at this place in History. I wouldn't recommend looking at this without screening it first (which is difficult because it is 5 hours long). There is brief back nudity and some mild sexual inuendo. I have a 13, 11, and 9 year old so if they don't know by now that we are all naked without clothes I'm not sure if I've properly done my job. The nudity is in context and not vulgar so you will have to make a call on that. We are about 1/2 way through it so I'm not sure what else awaits me. I think this movie was put out in 1971.
Thursday - I purchased a jewelry beginner's set to get the girls' creative juices flowing. DD11 is really into accessories so she really enjoyed this activity. Needless to say I have to buy more items so they can continue creating.
Friday - I was soooooo excited when the door bell rang and I received this delivery:
I will try to resist the temptation to go through every single piece of literature for the rest of the weekend in anticipation of what awaits us for 9th grade using My Father's World.
