This Week...

This Week:

My poor baby got sick and missed two days of school.
It was only a low grade fever and sore throat but it's not like my baby boy (who's 7) to take a three hour nap in the middle of the day. 

(especially on his top bunk...he's not a fan of the top bunk)

This Week:

We found a new appreciation for "Choose Your Own Adventure" Books.
We read one we had at home (over and over again) and then made a trip to the library to check out another.

This Week:

We finally got a new library card since mine was stolen along with my purse.  Grrr!
We checked out a bunch of books from the library.

This Week:

We went to Pet Smart to get some more fish for our fish tank.
Our current record is O for 5.
At Christmas, Santa gave us money to buy some fish but unfortunately they all passed away quite quickly.
(RIP: Lacario, Hyper, Juliette, Dr. Pork Chops and Cat Food)

Today we asked the Pet Smart fish specialist for her suggestions for a "hearty fish."  She was a great help and I'm pleased to introduce you to our new batch of schooling tetra fish:

This Week:

The kiddos watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules for their weekend movie.
They both pointed out similarities and differences from the book.
I love that they both love to read.

This Week:

My Grandpa, my Dad's Dad, (Great Grandpa Bob to the kids,) passed away.
He was the most gentle and kind-hearted man and is painfully missed.

This Week has been quite the Week.

Love Chasing Vermeer! There are a few more about the same kids and they are great! I'm sorry to hear about your Grandpa. :(
