Great week but very few pictures. Instagram is going to be the death of my blog! It is just easy to post there and when it is time to blog I feel like I have already put all the pictures I have taken on IG. So if you follow me there, you have seen most of these!!
I learned to CROCHET this week! Just a single stitch but I did that stitch about 10000 times I think. I made a scarf, sort of. It kinds looks like dreadlocks but I love it. Keilee has been begging me to learn for 2 years but I didn’t think I could because I have some nerve damage in my left hand and have very little fine motor skills but I managed.
Keilee did Biology several times this week. She gets on a kick and stays on it for days. She asked me if I would ‘bleed for Science” and guess what? I did!! She wanted to look at my blood in the microscope. Our microscope is the pits!!! We so need a new one but they are pricey.
My cousin Gigi, who made me the beautiful quilt, came over this week to show Keilee how to sew Fleece boot socks. I had ordered a pair on Instagram and LOVED them. Keilee got the hang of it quickly. Gigi is a great teacher. She is just a wonderful, craftsy person. She can do anything!! Poor Kei is stuck with me who can do about nothing crafty.
2. Kei took this pic of me getting gas. I thought it looked cool.
3. Keilee at the eye doctor. She had been having headaches so I took her in. Her prescription had to be changed a bit.
4. A page in her art journal. This was one of my favorites. It is based on a song from Sweeney Todd.
5. This is the view from my bed every sunny morning. It is the early morning sun reflecting off a mirror Keilee had gotten me about 4 years ago. It always makes me smile.
Keilee also sent about 20 emails Thursday to Animal Rehabilitation facilitates all across the US asking for advice and telling them a little bit about herself. She did it all herself, I didn’t even know she was emailing them. She found the places online and found their email addresses. She has gotten 2 replies with tons of great advice. We have found that most people who are passionate about their job LOVE to help and give advice to young people. All you have to do is ASK!!!
We grabbed an ebook from Amazon called “Grammar Girls Presents the Ultimate Writing Guide for Students” when it was on sale earlier this week. It is full price now but it is AWESOME. I use her site all the time when we are looking up grammar questions and I have seriously learned so much in 3 chapters!! I can’t believe how many capitalization errors I have made my entire life! I actually think I made a few in this post but I don’t feel like looking it up.
A Favorite Post
If you haven’t read Jessica’s post over at Teachable Moments, “She Is More Than A Number” please take a few minutes and read it. This just resonated so deeply with me. It is wonderful!!!
Keilee joined me today with a Friday Collage. Check out her post if you’d like.
So that is a quick, repetitive for some of you, look into our week! Keilee is getting ready to do the writing class with Jessica and the girls as I type and this afternoon we are going to some new friends house to play games!
And I want snow!! I see all these beautiful pictures on IG of snow and it makes me want snow so badly. Maybe we will get some this winter.
Happy weekend y’all,
