We celebrated Mr. T's 2nd birthday this past weekend. He ate two cupcakes decorated like green frogs. He got some cool toys. His favorite present was a Thomas the Train tent. He would get in it and pop his head out like a game of peek-a-boo. But when his sisters got in the train, he would yell, "OUT!" Too much fun and excitement for one day!
Monday Toby took the day off from work, but we worked around the house. We picked up a neighbor boy to help us do some stucco work. We worked hard until about 3PM, and then we drove to WF to look at houses with Jes. We need to find her a place of her own. Looking at houses is time consuming and can be depressing. Some houses are so nasty, some are dark, some are boring, etc. Then the prices were all over the board. We will keep looking.
Tuesday I had a co-op group of homeschoolers, that included the GGs and
Mr. T, here at the house for an art lesson. A co-op is a group of moms
who get together once a week or so and have special lessons as group.
This week I was to teach watercolor Christmas cards. I had about ten
kids total, but the moms worked with the younger kids and left me with
older seven kids. They were attentive and fun and we made two cards
each. Today I have another group. This group will have fewer small kids. Now
that I have done the lesson once, it should go even better the second
time around. Right? Here is Mr T painting before the class got going. Here is the group of attentive youngsters.
