I love Oz. He took a whole bunch of stress off of me. One project is checked off the list. Next weekend isn’t going to sneak up on us quite so quickly now. Of course, there’s still a lot to do.
Today was a bit crazy. Corde did some of her writing homework and almost all of her science. Beekee was acting nutty all day. Sander was pretty chill for once. Luca managed to swing most of the day without a nap. With that stuff, I still managed to get dishes done, the cabinets got cleaned out, and I finally got the canisters clean to put up the flour and brown sugar. Just getting that done was crazy. I felt like I had a million interruptions. It was nuts.
The best part of the day was either Corde reading or the math for jelly bean exchange. The jelly bean exchange was requiring the kids to do math problems for jelly beans. Sander just counted jelly beans. Beekee answered addition problems. Corde did multiplication. The kids thought it was pretty fun, so that’s a bonus. It’s great to have a little educational fun.
However, my great stress relief was Corde’s fairy ears. Her costume is now complete. Oz made them when he got home. Pictures will follow, I promise, but we have a lot to do first. Now I just have to do the boys’ costumes and Oz’s pants. I just hope I can remember enough stories!
Fairy Fest is right around the corner. The fairies have been finished. I got my own special vendor badge. The fairy looks like she’s dancing. Our whole household has their own specialty badges since Grumpy and Aunt Misti are making them all. This is going to be fun!
This week we have baking to do for our potluck contribution. We need to get the costumes done. I have to plan our menu, something that’s easy to make since the cooking situation is confusing. The whole site is off the grid, so it should be educational too. I have to figure out what gear we need. The kids need to be ready too. That’s going to be tricky. They’ll need to be prepared for camping since it’s been so long. We have to get our fire gear ready too. It won’t be long before Corde will be able to do fire with us. We need to get her a hoop to practice with. She’s becoming quite the hooper! It’s gearing up to be a busy week and a great weekend. If only it weren’t sneaking up on us so fast!
Oh, and I forgot to mention it yesterday. Corde completed her second poem today. It’s not even due yet. We’re going to start her next poem this week. Corde swears she has a bad memory, but she’s really rocking on her math facts and poetry. She’s really good at this stuff! We’ll be doing a video of her next poem soon. Hopefully we can get some good videos at Fairy Fest too! It’s so amazing to see her blossoming as a result of co-op!
