Our week...

I will try to update the blog about once a week. Sometimes I may only have time to change the pictures. As you can see, I will keep you up-to-date on Harbin's memory verse and what Catherine is trying each week!!!!

While I'm writing, I will update you on the week so far.

Harbin started "school" this week at home with me. Our memory verse is Genesis 1:1 and he is doing well with it. He can say it with a little prompting, and his favorite part is GENESIS 1:1 which he says with great emphasis and usually is followed by "finger fighting" (a little something he decided would be fun after using his finger to say one!!). We are studying Noah this week and we have done many fun things. In the Memory Verse picture you can see the rainbow he made out of different shapes. He really loved getting to glue all of the shapes on the paper. His favorite thing this week has to be the masking tape boat we made on the carpet. He LOVES it!!! I made animal flashcards and he will put them in the boat- well all of the animals except the fish, duck and dolphin- "they swim in the ocean" he says. He will sit in the boat and play in the boat and has even pulled- yes literally pulled- Catherine into the boat. Needless to say, she wasn't as much of a fan of the boat after getting dragged aboard.

Catherine has started eating green beans this week. It's her first solid food other than cereal, and she just loves it. I made it in our Magic Bullet Blender and it was so easy to do (I am secretly looking forward to pureeing all kinds of new foods for her!!).

Scott has been training for an upcoming triathalon sprint. He did his first trial run last night and was happy to announce that he completed it- even ahead of other people. The actual race is coming up on September 8th.

I enjoyed Ladies Night Out this week and fellowship with friends. I had hopes of finishing the valances for the family room, but haven't had much time to sew this week- school is exhausting!!!

We have a fun weekend coming up... we're visiting Scott's grandparents at Red Top Mountain State Park and we have a wedding on Saturday night. I'll be back next week to update you all!!!

The mom.

Ok, I'll leave a comment since I'm having fun reading the comments on my blog, even though you totally hijacked MY idea :) (Really, I'm flattered). You can make up for it by posting lots of comments on mine, now that you have a google account, so it will continue to look like people are interested in us! I like what you have so far - keep it coming!
