Weekly Capture XL

A quick Weekly Capture you shall get this week because I only have maybe 25 minutes before all my beloved noise comes barreling back into our house. LegenDaddy decided to brave the crowds this morning and treat our boyOs to some fun time at the most amazing Children's museum, which just happens to be right down the street from our house. (I've heard tell of Indianapolis' trumping this one, but we haven't visited that one yet...)

A fun week it has been. Successful homeschooling week 2. Successful in the sense that we finally accomplished all I hoped for the letter A. If you've missed my past posts, we're using Twenty-Six Letters to Heaven by Sarah V. Park, and we're aiming to spend about 1.5 -2 weeks on each letter. We're moving at our own pace, but so far that seems to work the best for us. My sister showed up late Tuesday evening and was here for a wonderful 38 hours or so. We've also packed in 3 meals with other extended family members, so it's been a great week for spending time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.

Aunts are the awesomest because they find mustache pops + buy them.

Out of the Mouth of Dom
"The neighbor doesn't wake me up in the middle of the night, mom, because *I* have a magic rug."

Me: "Daddy agrees with me."
Dom: "Well, I agree with myself."
Oh, arguments with the 3 year old are the *best*.

"Well, I can't cut hair because I got no snissors."

Is standing on his own WAY more frequently. He took one step towards me, but it was definitely more of one of those "step into a fall" kind of steps. My estimate is that my lil man shall be walking in 2 - 4 weeks. He is frustrated beyond belief with how little I understand of his babble, but he is mostly stubbornly refusing to use sign language. He does love pointing at whatever his heart desires and then hollering at me for not hearing his points. Son, oh son, if only I could do everything.

Listening to

A new favorite brought to me by my sister. You might as well send her a note of thanks as well. The Lost Fingers (not to be taken as gory as far as I can tell) is a French band, classifying themselves as Gypsy Jazz, and covering popular songs from the 80s. Spotify has their albums as well, so get thee a listening.

I'm a bum at actually completing the list of books I made for myself to read this year. Perhaps if I just make a stack of all the books and put them next to my bed...

Dom has been quite into snuggley book time this week, and B has shown more and more interest in joining us for most of our daily reading time. Another favorite discovered at the library to be added to our personal shelves one day: The Knight and the Dragon by our ever favorite Tomie dePaola. It is low on words, but is great for imagination and beginning sight reading.

  1. It's true.....the Indianapolis play museum makes ours look like a humble playground.....but our Rochester museum is still fabulous. :)

    1. One day we'll get there. Maybe sooner than later since my brother is looking at colleges out that way. =)
