X ended up catching a cold again this week so there was a lot of low energy going around. I brought L to sports class this week while X stayed home with Daddy and played Yahtzee. I really didn’t want him running around being all snot-filled and feeling like he just wanted to lay down and rest. That being said, L scored a goal during their soccer game!
This week was filled with little projects and board games, me second shooting a wedding on Thursday (weird I know!), reading and resting, and Xman really wanting to clean the floors!
Floor washing attracts a curious Gypsy girl!
L got the Lego Play Book for his birthday and he has been building a miniature town complete with a museum, beach and hover trucks.
The days were beautiful so we took advantage by spending our time outside playing chess, strategizing, snacking and planning more creations.
X won chess pretty much fair and square I gotta say.
…all while the house siding is being torn down around us to make way for new siding!
L and I played scrabble and I showed him how to incorporate one word into another while utilizing the ‘triple word score’ making him beat me by a long shot. See bottom left where he added ‘go’ to ‘car’ then next turn ‘soy’ to ‘cargo’. Great game!
We read a FABULOUS book by Neil Gaiman which had the boys and I roaring with laughter and enjoying the notion that time travel can make someone be in two places at one time, while flying in a Floaty-Ball-Person-Carrier with a dinosaur. Dinosaurs aren’t really extinct, did you know that?
I just finished reading a wonderful book filled with myth and magic which has left images in my head and set my mind to wondering…and wandering…
We have a cousin arriving today for a week of visiting! I am glad and thankful that Xman was so keen to clean the floors!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend – we bought two Tofurkey’s this time around because last year we found they were so good that one just wasn’t enough! 😉
