I know it's no longer Friday but it seems I am a bit slow on many things lately.
Here is this week's Friday's Fave Five
hosted by Living to Tell the Story.
1. Hubby has worked two doubles in a row. This is good as it allows us to step one more small step closer to getting him home to be a full time farmer but..... it means that he will be away from home for at least 60 hours before we get to see him again. (That is if he does not get/accept a double tomorrow as well then you'll need to add on 24 more hours.) We miss him but we all take-one-for-the-team when the doubles appear because they help us move forward.
2. My Growing with Grammar and Winning with Writing arrived yesterday!!!
3. This week I discovered Paperback Swap. With my Sonlight Instructor's Guide in the mail I am hoping that I can find some books that our library does not have on this website. THEN!!! A friend gave me some of her credits too! YAY!
4. I read Lulu and the Brontosaurus to the children yesterday. WHAT A CUTE STORY!!! I was a bit worried at the beginning when I realized that Lulu starts off being a rude little girl. I dislike reading such books because more often than not these books do not teach my children how to CHANGE and be good, they teach my kids bad behaviors they had never imagined before. The humor of this book drives through this though. The author herself interrupts the story often with side comments. The little lulu sings songs that were torturing my oldest, which in turn delighted me. :) This is a sweet story of a selfish, rude little girl who in the end learns how to be polite and kind. Oh! About the end, there are three endings and your child gets to choose which one he thinks is best. A great, fun read indeed.
5. Last night I decided I needed a bath and a movie. I usually do not do this unless Hubby is here to take care of kids if they need. Last night I put them to bed, took a phone call from a mom debating a homeschool adventure and then hopped in the huge hot tub bath that came with the house. I watched Mrs. Doubtfire who I had borrowed from My Lois. I knew Robin Williams was super funny but had forgotten how endearing this story was. I loved the family reconciliation story line. A great oldie, you can even see a small bit of what will later become dialogue for Good Morning Vietnam in this show!
Well that's my Fave Five?
How was your week?
