The Weekly Plan {Jan 23rd}

If you make a weekly plan, how did yours go last week?  I was just looking over my weekly plan from last week (which I made and promptly forgot..just keeping it real, folks) and I think I got about 50% of mine accomplished.  I guess that's not too bad, especially since I forgot to look at it once I made it.  

How things really went: we didn't make it to the library until today, I didn't get the sheets changed, I took The Princess to sell Girl Scout cookies on Wednesday instead of Thursday because I found out at her meeting on Wednesday that her orders were due THAT day (oops!), Wednesday's dinner never happened (thank goodness for those Christmas gift cards for Subway), I blew my special Saturday morning breakfast because I ran out of eggs and working in the garage or cleaning my car never even entered my mind after I typed those words.  Oh, and I did get caught up on the laundry and the kitchen got cleaned...but of course that all needs to happen again now.  {sigh}

But this week is off to a good start and I'm determined to just keep building on that!  {thinking positive thoughts, thinking positive thoughts

-Co-op classes with our homeschool group

-Dinner: Pinto Beans & Cornbread

-Lunch: Butternut Squash Soup (didn't get made last week..ahem..)
-Hang valances on windows

I would imagine that this plan may morph and change a bit, but it's a good start!

aha, I'm not the only one whose plan went a little off course! I always start the week so good, but my efforts did wane towards the end of the week ... oh well, it's a new week! Which reminds me, I never did write out my weekly plan for this week yet! oops! =)

I LOVE that you kept it real and made all of us that have made a plan and forgotten about it after it was made feel so much better about ourselves!

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second coat

Fun With 4th of July Crafts: Part 3

I love my new patriotic front door wreath!! I had fun putting this together, although I must admit this is more of an adult craft than one for kiddos. I was inspired by this article in Family Fun magazine. I didn't have quite everything I needed for this one, but all I had to purchase was a few sheets of scrapbook paper and some double-sided tape. Then all I had to gather up were some scissors, regular Scotch tape, a ruler and some cardboard. First I cut four (5"x 6") pieces of each paper. Then by placing a piece of double-sided tape on one of the short ends of the papers, I rolled them into cones, pressing the seams together well. Then I cut a 10" circle out of cardboard and began to stick the cones on it. I used another piece of double-sided tape to stick the cones on, arranging them in a circular pattern. Next I used regular Scotch tape to attach them on the back to the back of the cardboard. After getting all the cones on, I was ready for my centerpiece. He
