The week in review

It has been a great week, I always feel so alive as Spring takes over. Last Sunday, we met up with my Mom, my sis and her family and went rollerskating. It was so much fun! I wish the RollerDome was closer because I'd love to go there more often! I did fall once while trying to help Luna and my poor knee is still black and blue. After 30 minutes at the rink, Miss Independent Luna wanted no part of holding hands anymore and was skating all by herself. I couldn't even coax her off the floor by tempting her with a snack, which blew my mind. The girl is *always* hungry. :lol:

Monday was a stay-at-home day. Did some homeschooling with Kaya and the usual Domestic Goddess duties.

Tuesday is such a fun day, it is when we have our homeschool co-op. There are about 16 kids, including the toddlers and we gather from 9 to 1:30 or 2. I teach art, which is a lot of fun. I need to come up with some good ideas for upcoming classes, though. I think we will be doing wood-block prints next week.

Wednesday we came to town again to drop off some of the food we have collected for the Open Cupboard, a quick trip to the library and a walk around town.

Yesterday we got Nico again. I am so thankful to have all of this tinme with her again and can barely remember the agony our family went through when we were fighting for just a couple of days a week with her. I think back now to when the custody battle was going on and people would tell us this would all work out for the best. It would make me so mad inside, thinking that they were wrong and life would never be the same. Now, things have never been better and I know I should have just had faith that God had a greater plan for all of us. :sigh of contentment:

Today we came down to the library for Story Time and I get a little time to use the computer before the program starts. Nico and Kaya do some of their homeschooling upstairs while I take Luna down to be with the little kids. Afterwards, we have a few errands to run in town and because it is supposed to be a beautiful day, we may take a little walk before we head home.

Not a lot planned for the weekend besides church on Sunday. I need to rearrange one of the spare rooms because on Tuesday I am getting a sewing machine! Woohoo! The Pastor at the church where we have our co-op over heard me asking another Mom there about sewing machines and he told me he had been needing to get theirs out of their bedroom. Ask and ye shall receive, huh? I can't wait to start sewing again and my girls really want to make some doll clothes. Because Nico and Kaya have been really into Little House on the Prarie again, I need to find a pattern for prarie dresses and bonnets.

Well, Story time will be starting soon, so I need to go. Hope everyone has a great week!!
