End of the Week Wrap-Up {week 7}

Yea!!  It's Saturday and we got to sleep in (well, with the exception of my hubby, bless his heart)!!  And we sure did need it--it's been so busy around here this week that we are all dragging a bit in our tracks.  A slow, lazy Saturday morning was definitely in order.

These past couple of weeks have been full, full, full.  But that's what keeps life interesting and exciting, right?

Here are our highlights from this past week:

On Tuesday night we were extremely blessed by a friend (whose family could not go) who shared free tickets to a Nashville Predators hockey game with us.  We were SO excited!  It was our very first hockey game ever--I've been wanting to go for a while now.  We had an absolute blast cheering on the Preds and enjoying the game.  And even though "our" team didn't win, it was a very exciting game.  It went into overtime and then sudden death.  

On Thursday we attended a science show with our homeschool group called 'Mr. Molecules' Bing Bang Boom Science Show'.  I must admit it was more of a show than science, but it was fun and the kids enjoyed it.  'Mr. Molecules' was a bit of a spaz though (think: Pee Wee Herman) ....lol

On Friday we had our very first experience with 4H.  Our homeschool group has teamed up with our local 4H chapter to provide classes for our students in the spring semester.  However, we had one day with them this week as an introduction and to elect their class officers.  My Princess was elected as Reporter--and, boy, is she happy about that!  (Have I ever mentioned that she occasionally writes a "family newspaper" for us?).  

Overall, it was a very good experience with 4H.  I am curious as to what and how long each class in the spring will be though.  My Mr. B is a very "young" 4th grader and sitting for 2 hours yesterday in a class about public speaking was a real stretch for him.  So I'm hoping there will be classes that will be a better fit for him.  

Friday evening was a whirlwind around our house with Vince and me heading to a wedding rehearsal dinner, Mr. B hanging out with his Nana, and The Princess off to her first youth event (a bonfire!) with our homeschool group.  We all had good times :)  

Oh--and one last thing to share ...these past couple of weeks my Mr. B has really been hitting the books.  For fun!!  I mean, he's been enjoying reading books on his own!  This makes me so very happy because while he absolutely loves to be read to (and we always have a family read-aloud going) he has not been very interested in reading on his own.  So I'm super proud of his progress in this area!  

Thanks for dropping by today~I'd love to hear from you in the comments.  Tell me how your week has been!
