This week was the calm before the storm. We were fortunate to be able to stay home a couple days, and get out for some great fun on three!
Monday we stayed home and did a lot of school work 🙂 Millie finished up her physical science course, and is ready to start chemistry soon. Elise has been busy working on subjects and predicates, and copying a poem about a chicken. We would have normally gone to a play date in the afternoon, but both girls were exhausted from the weekend, and wanted to stay home. They don’t have to ask me twice!
Tuesday, Dustin from Stranger Things “thunder lizard” sweatshirt was released at the Science Museum of Minnesota. The girls decided that we should go museum-hopping, and pick up sweatshirts while we were out. We started out at the newly renovated Children’s Museum. We didn’t spend too much time there, but the girls had a lot of fun in the tinker room, playing with the green screen, and climbing on the three story climbing structure. After that, we went to the Science Museum. They were sold out of hoodies, but the girls got other variations of the sweatshirt. Lastly, we met up with dad, and went to the WWI exhibit at the Minnesota History Center. We ended the night with tacos 🙂
Wednesday was SciGirls! We’re in year four. I can’t believe it! It’s so fun to be able to inspire young girls by bringing mentors and super cool experiences to them. We did coding this month. Elise normally doesn’t like anything that has to do with computers, but she loved the coding they did at the Apple Store!
Thursday we stayed home. I kept having a feeling that we were forgetting to go somewhere! We stayed home all day, the kids did their schoolwork, and we enjoyed each others company. It was wonderful!
Friday was a teen Field Trip Friday event. We met up at historic caves, where we got a history lesson about the caves past. It was super fun, and involved night clubs, mushrooms, gangsters, and ghosts. OOoOoo!
As I mentioned earlier, this is the calm before the storm. The next month of our lives will be turned upside down, while I work triple shifts, and try to balance homeschool, my school, work, the household, and getting sleep and not going crazy. More on all this later…
