What I Enjoyed This Week: Camp and Puzzles


Since Daniel had camp this week, we were a little busy, but not really.  We just had to load up the van to take him and then pick him back up.  Other than that, we were home the rest of the day which I enjoyed after our busy week last week.

The local college offers a children's camp every summer which has several different offerings at different times kind of like college classes.  So Daniel is taking a chess class, Math Magic, and Flying High, and he's having so much fun especially in the chess class.  Finally, he has people to play chess against, people he can't beat easily.  :)

Meanwhile, the girls and I worked on puzzles.  Several puzzles.  Five hundred piece puzzles.  One thousand piece puzzles.  Hard puzzles.  Easier puzzles.  I really enjoyed working with them solving these puzzles, but mostly I appreciated us all working together for a common goal.  Sarah Beth even picked out a 300 piece puzzle to do with Mary while Rachel and I finished up our hard puzzle.  Wasn't that sweet?

Here are a few other things I enjoyed this week:
  • getting back to my Summer Learning Plan.  I have taken a few weeks off for various reasons, and it was good to get back to it!
  • staying on top of the laundry.  :)  Since Daniel had to wear the same shirt every day for camp, I had to wash it along with a load of other clothes.
  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  This book is one that Sarah Beth has to read for her Challenge class this year.  I'm trying to read all of her required books so I know what's going on in her class.
We don't have much planned this weekend, and I'm enjoying every slow weekend we can get before soccer season starts back up.  

What did you enjoy this week?  What do you have planned for the weekend?
