Weekly Wrap Up - The End!

We finished up our school year this week!  Let the angelic choir sing!!!    Ok, it really wasn't that bad, but is sure was nice to put the books away and have some breathing room!   All of our extra curricular activities and midweek church activities are also finished for the summer!     Now I just need to do our end of year testing.

We went on a super fast little field trip this week.   It was fast because 1) it's been raining all week and we ran out for this between heavy rains, and 2) it was very crowded and 3) it wasn't real (there's a shock) which meant "lame" to the girls.   Yes, the 13,000 pound Idaho potato came to our area.
 
Lindsey completed her last 1,000 piece puzzle....and guess what?   She was not amused.

Like I said, it's rained ALL week here.  This created a small issue for us.  My husband's car broke down, again, and because it's over 20 years old parts are hard to come by.  (Ok, they've stopped making them, there I said it.)  We were able to find what we needed at a salvage yard (yes, seriously) but the part can't be retrieved until the monsoons end.    I'm trying to decide if we can survive as a one car family, or if we have to try to replace his car completely.

This week on the blog, I shared our 7th grade curriculum picks for the upcoming year.  Be sure to check it out and see what we have in the works.

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up.

  1. I understand about 20 year old car troubles. We've finally had to suck it up and get a new (to us) one. Good luck with your testing!!

    1. And yet you can get parts for antiques and hot rods, but not a plain old family car.

  5. Yaya for finishing school. Since we follow the calendar year we've got ages to go but we'll be school light for the next couple of weeks. Nearly as good as being finished!
