What I Enjoyed This Week: A Quiet One!

Oh my goodness!  This week was so nice and quiet!  We didn't have Classical Conversations; I cancelled piano lessons; and I didn't have Bible study.  It was so nice to have a wide-open week with nothing pressing to do, nowhere to go.  Yes, we have another planned for next week, and I'm looking forward to it!

Here are a few things I enjoyed from this week:
  • I took Sarah Beth to see Sleeping Beauty and her Winter Knight on Saturday.  I didn't realize that it was a panto which seems to be a comedic musical calling for audience participation, but we had a good time.  And that's what counts, right?
  • Preparing for Christmas.  I had time to get things done like wrap presents.  :)
  • Sarah Beth spent all day Tuesday with one of her friends.  I'm so glad she has opportunities like this, time to be a friend instead of always being the oldest child.
  • Running last minute errands.  I took the other four children with me Tuesday to run a few errands, like picking out Christmas gifts for John at a dollar store.  
  • Baking Green Kiss Cookies, at least, that's what we call them.  :)
  • The Health Museum.  I've meant to take the kids this fall since we're studying the human body in Classical Conversations, but we were just too busy.  Finally, we had time this week.
  • School.  Yes, I've enjoyed getting a few math lessons done this week, probably more than my children have.  :)
  • Puzzles.  I bought several Christmas puzzles, and we've enjoyed putting a couple together over the past few days.  Sarah Beth and Rachel are amazing at puzzles, and I enjoy spending the time with them.  Unfortunately, one of our puzzles is missing two pieces.  How do I know that we didn't just loose them?  We had just finished a 1000-piece puzzle without misplacing a piece (or letting Hannah carry one off).
We have another quiet weekend planned, just finishing up things for Christmas.

What did you enjoy this weekend?  What do you have planned for the weekend?  Have you ever put together a new puzzle only to find that it's missing a piece?  Or two?
