My to do list never seems to get shorter and what free time I have never really feels like free time with said list taking up space in my brain 🙂 So here I am with my weekly update a few weeks behind.
Exciting news for Gage fans. He started a YouTube Channel this week. I’d be much obliged if you’d give him a follow or even just view or like one of his photos. They are silly, but they are short 🙂 The process of him learning how to make videos and uploading them to a channel that he started all on his own while his parents were sleeping is the most initiative he’s ever shown and I want to support his excitement. We’ve had to put rules in place, including a weekly meeting where we approve all videos, but so far I love to see him creating stuff. He has like 20 videos but has only posted 3 so far.
I also love The Cottage Fairy videos. They are a relaxing and your mind has no choice but to slow down.
Books read since last update 20 (55 for the year)
A few standouts…
This past week I read SA Cosby’s first novel, My Darkest Prayer, and really liked it. The same narrator has done all three of his books and I would recommend giving it a try that way.
This was my favorite picture book of the week. King Sejong Invents and Alphabet celebrates learning in the biggest of ways. This is in preparation for studying Korea this next week.
We read the historical fiction Snow Treasure as we studied Norway this week. An inspiring book for 9-12 year olds.
Moxie! I really liked this coming of age movie and seeing Amy Poehler as the mom.
Solace was a good thriller for a date night.
I watched Bliss a few days ago and still don’t know what I watched 🙂
This 500 MasterPieces puzzle as so much fun!
Plans for the weekend
A date with the hubby tonight, but I’m not sure what we’re doing.
