It's hard to believe, but yes, we now have a teenager! We celebrated with family on Saturday. Olivia had her heart set on a store bought cake this year, so here's what she picked out. Although I made cupcakes as well and she agreed that mine was better. If only I could decorate!
Monday was her actual birthday, so the husband took a vacation
day and we skipped piano and ballet. I had planned to take the kids
to the water park, but Olivia said she wasn't interested, and asked if
we could all go to a movie and dinner. I hope she's not just lulling
me into a false sense of security, but hey if she wants to just do
family time for her birthday, I'm good with that!!
We went to see Zootopia, and it was a cute movie, although the excessive pushing of acceptance and tolerance was a bit much. After the movie we ha to a had lunch at a local pizzeria that has some amazingly good, and HUGE pizza. This is one slice, and it's not photo shopped.
We are quickly coming to an end of the school year, with only one more week of Latin, and a little math and spelling left. I'm trying to work on a summer schedule, as I don't want to lose momentum, especially as we head into Algebra. Hopefully I'll have something worked up to share in the next week.
On the blog this week:
If you're looking at your life and feeling stressed or overwhelmed, you may find encouragement in my post Blessings In Disguise. I've shared a couple of product reviews this week. If you have any issues with dry skin, be sure to check out my post about GREEMU (yes, really that's the name). I also shared a review YWAM Publishing, featuring a book about Douglas MacArthur, which we LOVED!!
