Another great week here in Alabama. This is the week before Show Week so it is hectic. Not as hectic as next week will be but still a little crazy.
We spent one day with Kathy and Sophie. We went swimming and then to a downtown festival that is held every 3rd Friday. After that we came back over here for dinner and watched Space Warriors. They hadn’t seen it yet. It was a great day except that I got so sunburned. Which was crazy because I am the darkest of us all. I think my sunscreen wasn’t strong enough!
Sunday we spent the day with my brother. His family was in Mobile visiting her parents so we went for a long Sunday drive. It was a beautiful day. We went back to the roadside Farmers Market that I loved last year. There is no one there, just a box for your money. And there is still the sign about IOU’s and Widows. Love it! I loved the store that sold “Beer Bologna and More” I mean what else is there???
Keilee had practice 3 times this week. Starting Sunday it will be every day. We are so excited about this show. It is one of my favorite ones she has ever done!
She did a lot of creating as always. She got playing cards and painted them and wrote her favorite bands, Disney quotes and more on them. She wants to string them up and put them in her room. She also did another Art page and is making all her kittens in the play a “Kitten headband”. She has knitted them all and now just has to add the eyes, whiskers and ears. They are going to be so cute!!!
She also decided to make jewelry this week. I swear she is never idle. NEVER. She doesn’t ever just sit. She is always doing something. I wish I had 1/2 of her energy. She used things like bottle caps, the tabs from canned drinks and more to make these things. I love the birdcage! She hammered holes in a bottle top and used wire to make the cage.
The theme for 7 Cool Homeschoolers was “Water Cup Challenge”. This was fun for Keilee and of course she added her own bling to it. Check it out if you get a chance!
Next week is going to be insane but after the play we are going to take it easy for a bit. I hope!!! She plans to start/restart? school the week after the play. There are big plans for our fall. Can you believe it is nearly August? Where did the summer go.
Happy weekend all!
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities. ~Dr. Seuss
“The stage is a magic circle where only the most real things happen, a neutral territory outside the jurisdiction of Fate where stars may be crossed with impunity. A truer and more real place does not exist in all the universe.” ~P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe
