Weekly Wrap Up - Short Summer Do's

Our patient was supposed to be here 10 days, that has now morphed into a minimum of three weeks, so we're still pretty much home bound.   Early in the week the girls and I worked on a project from Lindsey's science curriculum.   It was supposed to be bird seed bird feeders, but I bought sunflower seeds instead and we made squirrel feeders (for our entertainment more than for feeding the squirrels).  

We gathered a few pine cones from the yard, spread peanut butter on the cones then rolled the whole thing in sunflower seeds.    Then we used some heavy yarn to tie to the cone onto various limbs and hanging planters within view of the sunporch.

Twenty-four hours later, we've got live entertainment outside the window.

The girls are in the process of getting ready for church camp (Lindsey leaves on Monday), and I'd promised them new haircuts for the summer.   With our patient in tow, we headed out to make sure that happened.   See the BIG difference from the photos above until now?

The rest of the week, we've worked on a few art projects for a review (check out our Swedish dala horses below), took care of the patient and celebrated the patients birthday too.

On the blog this week I a book review of  The Glass Castle (LOVED IT) and I also shared some encouragement to homeschoolers in my post Let's Get Back on Course. 

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up.
Pin It!


  1. Sleep away camp is such a fun outing for kids over the summer. The project was enjoyed by the little critter, lol! This summer we skipped it for Day Camp, which is working out better for my little guy. I'm visiting from Weekly Wrap Up.

    1. This is our first year of sleep away camp for either girl. Here's hoping it goes well!

  2. Their new haircuts look great. They look full of summer already.
    Blessings, Dawn

    1. They love the new hair! Have a great week!

  3. Great haircuts! I just chopped mine from midway down my back to just under my chin; something about summer and short hair...
