Weather: cold. Like “can hardly convince myself to get out of bed” cold. We haven’t ventured outside for play in several days now because it’s just too cold to even attempt it.
This Week: Regular work week for me and Superman, piano lessons for Big Kid on Friday, catching up on everything that didn’t get done last week due to everyone being sick! I’m making some adjustments to our cleaning routine this week hoping that it will help ease the days that I work a bit longer.
Current Fiction Read: I just started Twilight last night. I know I’m late to the party, but I made it, right? I’m only about 10 pages in, so no word yet on how good I think it is.
Current Non-Fiction Read: Young at Art by Susan Striker. I’m really learning a lot from this book!
Craftiness: I’m currently knitting Mittens for Little Bit and woking on Christmas gifts for both boys. I’m also continuing my work on Reed’s Quilt.
Learning at home: Last week we fell by the wayside with all the illness. But one of the first things asked for post-breakfast this morning was for some work to do. I’ve re-organized the cabinets again in an effort to keep Little Bit out of Big Kid’s work, but he found away around my organization. So I’m re-thinking. He wants to do what he sees his brother doing, but it is work he’s not capable of doing, so I’m having to think more about Montessori work that can be appropriate to a 16-month old but also work that he feels like is something worthy of his brother… there’s a challenge for you!
