We've had a busy week! I'm thankful that we got everything done and that I was able to get everyone where they belonged.lol
Wednesday is Jon's engineering class and it's a fun drive. The classes are held in Historic Orange Park. Most of the homes are over 100 years old. This building used to be where I bought my reeds for my clarinet while I was in middle school. Now it's a fancy knick-knack shop.lol
Here is where Jon has his lessons. It's an old home turned into a Homeschool store.
He had another great class!
Later in the day, Evie has gymnastics. She has really found something that she loves! Her coach is wonderful with her and I have a feeling we're going to be doing this for a while.lol
The kids also played outside.
It was a beautiful day and I'm glad that they took advantage of it because Thursday was yucky.lol
Thursday, we went on a field trip to the skating rink.lol My mom went with me to help wrangle the littles and we had a great time. No photos since I was lucky to remember all the skates and all the kids.lol I skated and Allison was shocked that I was good. She forgot that I lived at the same rink she does when I was her age.lol I ended up in the middle of the rink teaching the young homeschoolers how to skate for an hour and had a good time.lol I had a few parents too. I was happy to help and it was fun being on skates again. Maybe when the littles are older, I'll get to go more often.
When we got home, I made my grocery list and took off for the stores. I did really good at Walgreens and so-so at Publix. I only spent 2.36 at Walgreens and bought 6 bars of Irish Spring soap, a Softsoap Bodywash, a bottle of Garnier Frutis shampoo, a Speedstick 24/7 and two toys. I'll also get over 12.50 in rebates back. Not too shabby.lol At Publix, I spent $171.00. Yuck.lol I'm trying to keep my bill below $200 each week. I'll be a little over after co-op today but I'll be close and that's good for me.lol
I'm hoping to do something fun with the littles today but it's looking pretty wet this morning. My mom's birthday is tomorrow and Sophia's is Tuesday, so I'll probaby do a little shopping. I already bought all of Sophia's presents and the makings of her birthday cake. I'm trying to stay on top of all the birthdays but it's getting harder with all these little ones! It seems like there is ALWAYS a birthday.lol Advice from those with lots of littles would be appreciated!
Well, that's it for now. It's been a good week and I'm so thankful that we have so much for the kids to do. It's a blessing to see them all grow and find where they belong.
