Weekly Photo Collage :: 3/8/2013 - Do A Dot Markers

This week was the first week, since December I think, that we have not had someone coming or going or preparing to come or go!  It was nice to get back into our normal routine and have a quiet week.

Last weekend when we were out bike hunting for Sarah, I noticed that Toys R Us had Dr. Seuss books on sale.  I picked up a few replacements.  We have been through several copies of Hop on Pop, definitely a family favorite.  We also bought Are You My Mother? and Big Red Book of Beginner Books.  We have been reading the books all week.

The younger kids did some Do - A - Dot Art.  Can't believe how much stuff is available on-line {for free!} to do with these markers.  My kids enjoy them and then are virtually mess free, I enjoy that!

I printed out letters to spell each of the younger kids names, but the sky is the limit and there is tons of fun stuff to do.  I won't even attempt to link to any of it because there are so many pages.  If you have preschool/lower elementary age kids I highly recommend these markers.  They would make a great addition to the Easter basket!

The older kids started off each morning doing some math drills, a refresher on multiplication facts.

We've been reviewing Ancient Rome with Heritage History.  I will have a longer review on the products next month, here's a sneak peek though, a big thumbs up!

We've also been adding a bit of notebooking in our week.  So far I've been very happy with what the kids have been doing.  I will share more on that soon too.

Around the House:

Week 3 de-cluttering is in the books.  We got rid of a lot of junk!  Old papers, crafting supplies, old coats, boots, just to name a few things.  My house feels better already and we're only half-way through our de-cluttering mission. 

Fit & Healthy:

Friday we start the Ultimate Reset, a 21 day reboot for your body.  Good way to finish out the last weeks of Lent.  Then we start Insanity.  I'm a wee bit nervous about starting that program, but I'm trying to go into the challenge with a positive attitude.  Have you ever tried Insanity or any other Beachbody program?

Blog Happenings:

We celebrated a birthday last weekend, and I blogged a bit about how birthday's can be a bit more complicated when adoption is involved.  I did my third week of encouraging and inspiring quotes, and then on Wednesday I shared one of our favorite easy, healthy, frugal dinner meals.  It's a great meal to have during Lent!

That dinner looks delicious!! All those veggies! Do-a-dot markers were a favorite around here for years. Fun and clean. :) I love the notebooking pages. I look forward to seeing more.

We love Notebooking too. Isn't it awesome? I am feeling the 'urge' to declutter too. Not much motivation but definitely some 'urges' :) I love 'normal' weeks too but we seem to have too few of them! You have such precious kids.
