Weekly Wrap-Up: In Which We Get Back on Track

Friday, February 4, 2011

Here is a quick update on what we did this week...day by day.

{Monday}- We are still dragging from being sick, but we made it through the day!  School got done.  Housework was somewhat attended to. I even made some lunches for the week. So we are finally back on track with life (somewhat).

Nothing extremely exciting in school today except that Noah did a quick science experiment from Apologia Human Anatomy to see why the fluid around our brains is so important.  We placed an egg in a plastic Easter egg and dropped it. It cracked (no big surprise there!). Then we put corn syrup in the plastic egg and put a new egg in.  When we drop this one the real egg didn't crack! The syrup had cushioned the blow.

We attempted to make homemade marshmallows today!  It was super easy!

This has been a low key day.  Zach woke up not feeling well again.  I am real tired.  We got school done...just the bare minimum.  We are calling it good!

Today is a complete day at home! No outside activities.  I am currently reading Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living.  After the boys are done with school I will probably start decluttering the living room.  Our house is so in need of some organization right now!

Those marshmallows look really good!
The book you are reading on decluttering is so tempting to me. I often covet a library system, small town no library. LOL. Anyway I enjoyed following your link to the book and reading about it.

Your marshmallows look GREAT! I might have to try it with the kids (who are big marshmallow eaters!) Fun egg experiment! (I can't wait to do Anatomy!)

So, what do you think of the book on organizing so far? Was looking at that one myself!

Debbie said...

Amy- I am really liking the book so far. It is motivating me to declutter my home. Yesterday I clean out several bookshelves and our school room. I am loving the extra space we have now!

I need to read that decluttering book, too! Although trudging through the house with a huge trash bag might be the ticket, too... Hope you are all feeling right as rain soon!
