The Weekend

This past weekend was full of rain, exactly what this household needed I think.
With the coming of October so soon we changed over the calender, filling in all the busy schedules around here.
We did a lot of much needed house cleaning, both big and small (see above).  There are some big changes going on around here in the future months, rooms are changes and things are feeling a bit chaotic.  So it was nice to try and get a bit more organized through it all.
Greg and I hemmed and hawed over a curriculum that I was interested in using, in the end we decided to stick with what we have as trying to rearrange the other to suit our needs would be too much work for this mama.
We all geeked out to some Star Trek Voyager, what fun this family has been having traveling through space with the crew of a star ship.
Greg of course played some music, lots of fun things coming up for The DHBC in the near future and that hubs of mine is super excited...if not a wee bit distracted.
There was  chicken tikka masala in the crock pot.
There was chess with dad, I do think if Corey continues to go to his weekly chess club meetings that it's only a matter of time before the hubs loses to this boy.
Of course there was crafting, when is there not really?  Viking shields, new beds for the doll house, some books are being worked on.
We didn't get outside much in this rain, but there was plenty of snuggling and I think everyone is starting off this week feeling well rested and accomplished.

How was your weekend?


  1. Can't wait to see the viking shields!

  2. Angie, I have been meaning to tell you that if you want I can check to see if I have any books you might be interested in for school. I have boxes of books that no one is using and since we are now 'doing' highschool for the last time, I have no reason to save them. Maybe next year?

  3. I married a Trekkie and we watch lots of episodes. I remember when our son beat my husband at chess, now he wins all the time :) love your weekend!!!

  4. sounds like it was a much needed weekend! we all seem to need those forced home weekends on occasion to tackle projects and things that have slipped by the wayside.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear comments and try to answer any questions so feel free to tell me what's on your mind!
