Busy week...

This week has been busy so far. Daddy left town on Sunday, so we have spent a lot of the week sending him emails and finding New Mexico and Louisiana on the map. Monday and Tuesday were filled with playdates and the park. Today we visited the library for Storytime. Harbin loved the songs and books and was happy to get to return his two books and check out two new ones. Tonight we will pick daddy up from the airport (or Marta)!! YEAH!!! We can't wait to have him home again!
Catherine started crawling a TON this week. She can now move all over the living room and goes from crawling to sitting in no time flat. She is even pulling up on things and standing. Her favorite thing is to pull up and eat the fireplace- not my favorite thing for her to do, so we are working on a plan to discourage that! She is even standing some on her own- ok, well, not for any amount of time, but it's still quite impressive. She will stop crawling, push up on her hands and feet and then just stand up- then she falls on her tushy!!! It's really cute and sort of funny looking since she is barely 2 feet tall!!! As you can see from the pic, she is LOVING the fact that she can now play with ALL of Harbin's toys! She has also started babbling- Harbin thinks she says Momma, but I think she just babbles still.
We haven't done much school this week. We are talking about the days of creation and have studied what GOD made each day. We no longer have a masking tape boat on the floor, now we have 6 masking tape squares labelled 1-6. I have had him go around and hop from square to square talking about what God made on each day. Then we both crash on the couch and REST as God did on the 7th day. Today we made chocolate cookies from scratch and used cookie cutters to make the things God made- animals, stars, plants, people, etc. The cookies even turned out tasting GOOD although they were harder to tell what they were once they cooked.
Well, check back later for more updates on us. We are going camping this weekend for Labor Day, so I am sure I will have lots to tell on Tuesday when we return home!
The mom.

One of my blog readers would like information on your home-schooling. I gave her your e-mail address (hope that's ok :), and if you have any websites or book names I could pass onto her, that would be great!! Can't wait to hear about your camping trip.
