Weekly Wrap Up–Birthday Week

It’s official, I’m closer to 50 than 40 now.  Sigh.   Yes, I turned FORTY-SIX this week…that sounds so much older than 45, I don’t know why that is.   I was showered with  goodies from friends and family.  It’s no wonder I battle my weight!   I posted all kinds of cool photos and stories in a post titled The Birthday Week, over on my other blog.

Despite lots of cake, this has not been a stellar week (although there was cake…and that fixes a lot of woes).  Anyway, this was the official week that both of the offspring turned into “children of the zombie apocalypse”, or at least a zombie sucked their brains out.  Does that ever happen with your kids?  You DO know what I mean, right?  They go to bed normal, and  wake up one morning and it’s like someone rewired their little brains and forgot to connect a few things?  PLEASE tell me it’s not just my kids???

Having said that, both girls finished up their math units.  They will be repeating those units, unless the zombies return to finish them off before next week.  Ahem.

We did however make a totally amazing salt dough map to go with our Civil War Unit.  This is a map of our general area, and the major battles that took place nearby.

This week,I ordered our year end testing kits, and believe it or not the curriculum for next year.  I guess there’s no changing my mind about what we’re using now, huh?   I’ll be sharing a post about our final picks soon!

Typically we don’t have co-op on the first Friday of the month.  However, because of Good Friday being mid month, we had to go today.  Boo-hiss!  Only 4 more Friday’s to go!  (Fist pump!)

That’s the highs, and low’s for the week.  Just keeping it real folks, it’s not always rainbows and butterflies up in here.   I hope your week was a success, if not there’s always next week, right?

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up and Collage Friday.

    1. Well I'm glad it's not just my kids that do that. I feel better knowing there are other moms who suffer along with me. Grins.

  3. Yes, zombies visit my children sometimes too! I would never have guessed your age - I think in my head I just usually picture people as around my age (32) unless they are obviously younger (children) or obviously older (my grandparents' ages).

    We've ordered the majority of our curriculum too, it's lined up on a shelf. I need to grab math at convention this month and hopefully a few other 'fun' things, but we have most everything else. I can't wait to hear what you picked for next year!

    Would you believe I've NEVER done a salt dough map? I feel like slacker-homeschool-mom but it's true. I plan to make up for it next year, we're doing world geography and they will be lots of salt dough going on.

    1. In my mind I am still in my 30's. Not that I'm denying my age, but when people ask my age I really do have to stop and think before I answer.

      This is the first ever salt dough map for us. I thought I better do it now so I could feel like a real homeschooler, ha! It was lots of fun, and I should have used the left over dough to make Christmas decorations....but it didn't happen.

  4. We had zombie problems today too. Well, more like some sucked out the manners portion of her brain.

    I'm in my 40's too, but I remember 36 being the year I freaked out. Not 30 or 35, but 36. It meant I was on my way to 40.
