Weekly Review–Week 5


weekly review graphic 2


There was no school this week.  I started the week in the hospital with a unknown allergic reaction.  After spending the first part of the week in the hospital and coming home on medicine that has made me feel terrible, I decided school was not on the list this week.  Kiddo has been very good and helpful all week.  

Since there was no school this week, I thought I would list what we do on days or in this case week, when school is not an option due to illness or whatever.  We don’t have any family near us, so we don’t have any extra help when something is up, so I try to have a plan to deal with those pop up situations.

One thing I do is collect LEGO kits. Kiddo loves LEGOs and they can keep him busy for hours. As I find a good deal I keep a few kits put back for these times. I had LEGO: The Rise of the Sphinx kit, it is 550 pieces and a difficult build as far as LEGO kits go.  It took him about 4 hours to build, and he has played with it for days.  After he is done with the kits he takes them apart and then starts building all new creations. Have I mentioned we love LEGOs!


He loves reading so having a new book or two put back it always good. He loves the Buddies movies from Disney.  We have all of them and they are some of his favorites. I found a Spooky Buddy book, about the new movie that comes out in September.

He has also done a lot of drawing this week.  I think we have gone through a 1/2 ream of paper.  I ordered a set of Sharpies for a craft project for us to do later and he has had the best time getting to use Mom’s “special pens”. I love Sharpies.  If you are looking for a good deal on Sharpies I found this set.

Here is one of the photos he made for me, most his drawings are of cars, hot wheels, fire, engines, etc., boy stuff, but he made me this one and said I would like a pretty flower.


I am really looking forward to getting back to school and a routine next week.
