We went into our first week of school tired. I was definitely not at my best, but we managed to have a good, quirky, imperfect first week. Here are a few snapshots:
Favorite moment: reading The Penderwicks on Gardam Street at our picnic
Most inspirational resource: Spare Parts, the movie
Biggest honor: playing piano at my friend’s mother’s memorial service
Biggest fail: tomato bisque (inspired by this clip, which my children inexplicably love)
Number of games played on the new coffee table: 18
Number of times the children asked “What’s for dinner?”: 835 (each)
Biggest milestone: teaching Jonah to drive. (Where is the parents’ manual for driver’s ed?!!)
Most untrue thing said: “I’m terrible at math!!”
Weirdest thing I said: “Solo puede haber uno!!” I haven’t actually let my children watch Highlander (even in Spanish)… and not just because it’s the weirdest movie I like. (Fargo being the other movie I have an odd affection for.) But I feel it’s coming.
What is the weirdest thing you said this week?
