The Week in Review:)

The other day Junior Squirrel was standing next to me and he kept messing with his pants/underwear. I asked him what was wrong, if his underwear were tight to which he replied, "No, I just don't like when it sticks up." Oh goodness, I about died laughing.

This morning we talked about Attila the Hun in history. I read how the Huns had scarred faces and they asked what a scar was. I couldn't think of any I had on my off-hand, besides my c-section scar so I proceed to show them. In turn both boys stand up and pull there pants down a bit past their belly buttons trying to look for their scars! They're so funny!

Sweet Pea thinks she's such a big shot. She loves pencils, books and papers. She just wants to be like the other kids. She grabbed a pencil and JS's reading book, brought them next to me on the couch and just gave me this look, like "Ah ha." Boy, did I get a laugh out of that! She's no dummy! You ask her if she wants to go upstairs and she'll go over to the stairs. If you ask if she wants a bath she does the same. If you ask her if she wants to eat she'll smack her lips together, point to the kitchen or go to her chair. I am utterly amazed at how smart she is! She's such a joy! She's been getting one of her molars in and not eating and boy was she a stinker last evening. But then she'll do the goofiest thing and just cheer me right up! Gotta love the little munchkin.

I've been taking a break this week from Booty Shaker's normal school. We've been writing letters and words and just practicing. Well, he totally gets it. Yesterday he read me his 'reading' book. So I think next week we'll break out the regular books again. He just needs to realize its ok to sound out each letter in the word to see what it says.

Chatterbox...hmmm. She's just plugging away at school, reading and writing letters to people. She is so much like me when I was her age. She's been playing Lego's in the basement with the boys a lot and made the cutest animal shelter! I am amazed at the things these kids come up with with Lego's! I never was that creative with them!

In regards to my post about my dad, thanks to all who are praying. As soon as I wrote it the thought occurred to me that maybe he was just saying that and 'pulling my leg' again. I really don't know, but I pray for him. I certainly couldn't understand how somebody could NOT believe. In our science we even have little "Evolution stumpers" and boy, it sure makes you think "DUH" in regards to evolution! Sherry, thanks so much for sharing on that one:) It's so reassuring to know! I'm praying for you and Paul daily!

I can't remember what else I was going to post about this week that just got away from me. I'm sure there was more, but this will do. It's the weekend for us, as Zach is supposed to have tomorrow off!!! Of course I'll do some school but we'll just take it easy! I need to get some groceries in the house.

That is so funny about JS, thats boys for you. I remember I worried about Jalynn being a late talker, but she was so smart that I didnt really worry about it much. She use to do things like SP. One thing she use to do was when I would bath her. I would say wheres your stinky pits, and she would lift her arms up so I could wash her arm pits. My kids like legos too, although they dont take very good care of them so therefore they are all lost or scattered so they dont play w/ them much.

I am OK said...

too funny about JS! C and I were in a store once and he saw this storm trooper underwear and asked if he could have it. I said, not now, or something as equally mindless and he starts yelling "Please, My PEEPEE REALLY hurts in this kind!" Gotta love kids.
