A Week in Review (November 9-15)

A Week in Review (November 9-15)

Watched: Jack's team get another win at soccer. He loves playing goalie. He didn't let the other team score any goals on him, but he was quite surprised when one of his own teammates kicked it in his goal. :)  The look on his face when I told him that counted for the other team was pretty funny. 

Read: I am still making good progress on my two books, Grave Mercy and 11/22/63. No reviews this week, but I have a feeling next week will bring double reviews. :)

Listened: To Jack's classmates come up with some good responses as to what they would eat if they were the little old lady at Thanksgiving.  I volunteered to put together a lesson on There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie.  The kids seemed to have a good time with it.  It's really nice to be back in the classroom, even if it is just on a volunteer basis.
Made:  Our annual turkey handprint plate. This year's plate has a Bronco turkey on it. What is even funnier is that he dreams of scoring a touchdown by running through the Chief's players leg. I know I am going to treasure these glimpses at his personality as he grows.

Felt: So cold. We, like most of the rest of the country, got hit with a blast of arctic air. I think it was harder to handle because the forecast had claimed we were going to have 60s. We have lit our gas fireplace. We were disappointed to learn that while it looks like they wired for a blower, they didn't install one. Seems to defeat the purpose. 

Planned: Out our Thanksgiving Menu. With all thr travel we will be doing at Christmastime, we decided it was best to stay at home this year. We will be having turkey, stuffing, prime rib, mashed potatoes, potato salad, sesame green beans, rolls, and pumpkin pie. 

Loved: Getting the flag from the KU game. It was so hard to see the flags waving in the stadium knowing that this is the first one we would miss in years. Imagine our delight when showed up in the mail. We are so thankful to Uncle Kevin for picking one up for us and to Aunt Debbie for getting in the mail.  Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Here are the pics for the week:
