Welcome to my Project 365: Cell Phone Edition.
That's right. After Family Camp and all the disorganization that followed our return, I've misplaced BOTH of my memory cards. So the camera has been having a little rest this week, I guess you could say. Just warning you.

This is only HALF the amount of laundry we brought back from camp. And I have no motivation whatsoever to get started on this monster.

For one of Noah's school activities today, we played The Allowance Game. This is, by the way, one of the best games I've ever seen for teaching kids to make change, etc. in a real-life setting. I used this game in my second-grade classroom back in the day, and I still love it. It's a lot like Monopoly in many ways (note: it can go on and on), but it's played in terms kids can relate to. Every time you come back "Home," you get your $3.00 allowance. Then you might buy bubble gum or lose some money and do some little jobs here and there along the way, giving lots of opportunities for kids to count out payment, make even exchanges, and make change. Saylor plays with us and works more on coin identification and basic counting. It's all about exposure for her. Really, I can't say enough good stuff about it. (Can you tell?)

Tonight we went out for Paul's birthday. I noticed the boys all had on stripes (quite by accident), so we tried to get a quick picture of that. Of course, in this picture, you can only tell that two boys have on stripes.
Daddy's chosen restaurant has a fish pond.
We went home for dessert. I had baked a "healthy" coconut pie. Everyone seemed to like it, despite the fact that it didn't look very appetizing. Especially the meringue. Ewww. That's what I get for leaving the egg whites in the mixer and walking away! (Never do that.) Anyway, Gabriel was so cute because he kept dancing around saying, "I 'cited, Daddy, I 'cited!"

Today was Saylor's first day back at ballet. And it's in a new studio! Same group; new (very snazzy, very kid-friendly) studio. The best part by FAR is that we're in a homeschool class time!! 11:30 a.m. How nice is that?! No more dealing with Rush Hour traffic and late suppers! (Well, at least not that can be blamed on ballet rehearsal...)

It's Game Day. And while this is NOT our vehicle, we DO have about this much team spirit today...deep, down in our hearts. Spirit. But no tickets. Boo hoo!
Okay. As of TODAY I now have ONE memory card found. I am so thankful. And you will be, too, come next week, right? That is, if you're still around... bleh! Thank you, Sara, for hosting our very fun project--even when it's done entirely on a cell phone.
