The Weekly Wrap-up: Rockets, Scouts and Co-op Classes

What a week! Did I say we were taking Spring Break this week?! Well, I need a break from our Spring *Break*. My poor eye has been twitching all day from exhaustion! ha! We have had a great week though, even if I am looking forward to sleeping in Saturday morning.

Monday found us in Huntsville, Alabama, heading to the US Space & Rocket Center. We had a very fun visit~you can read more about that field trip here.

Tuesday dawned way too early after our long day of driving home after our field trip on Monday. But we got The Princess off to Girl Scout day camp anyway. She couldn't have been more excited! Doesn't her troop look so cute with all of their little lunch bags (The Princess is on the far right)? As homeschoolers taking a sack lunch is a BIG deal apparently.

Wednesday was the big *8* for The Princess. I can't believe how fast they grow!! We had a great time celebrating her birthday throughout the day. Her cake turned out so yummy!

Thursday brought the last day of day camp for The Princess and after dropping her off for the morning Mr. B and I headed to a local play place~the Monkey House~for some bounce around fun with a friend and her son. The week had been focused a lot on his big sister and I wanted to take some special time to do something fun just with him. We had a great time together!

We also had some family game time on the Wii Thursday evening. We always have fun playing on that! The kiddos kept me especially entertained watching them race on the bikes.

Friday brought back our co-op classes after having last week off from them. Lego class gave everyone a challenging contraption: an art-o-mation. We were short some parent assistants in there today and I have never been so busy helping put Legos together. It was crazy:) We did have fun playing with them after finally getting them together though and the kids made some fun doodles with them.

Next was crafts class...with painting. Again, we were short on assistants and it was one busy hour. While the kids had a blast painting, I was completely exhausted and ready for a nap by the time it was all over!

The kids' art turned out great though:) My kids could seriously draw, color, paint and craft all day long!

After co-op our homeschool group sponsored an afternoon of bowling fun. I must say I sat on the sidelines and cheered the kiddos on rather than throwing my arm out bowling. The kids had a great time and burned off some energy.

When we finally got back home late in the afternoon my sweet hubby graciously *ordered* me to go take a nap before dinner. What a great guy! I so need that:) My eye even stopped twitching after a little shut eye. The we finished our day up with pizza and a movie.

So did you take a Spring Break? If so, what did you do? I'd love to hear about it!

We went to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center last August and had a blast there!

I agree-you deserve a break from your break. Kinda like a vacation after a great vacation! What a great week, though! Hopefully you can take a real day off Monday!

WOW! What a busy week you've had!! Love the artwork! And isn't it funny how they love to do teh sack lunch thing? I asked my kids once if they wanted to go to ps, and they said yes. I asked them why, and they said, "So we can have Lunchables!" That was an easy fix!

We are not taking a spring break right now. We are going to Disney beginning of May, so I guess that will be our spring break.
