The Finale to a BUSY Week!

Whew! It's been a busy week - minus working all week at school! Hooray for teacher vacation time! Well deserved I might add- we've got to gear up for the NYS Math exam the first week in March. Uck!

Anyhow, just thought I'd post before the really busy week begins...

Brendan, Sean and I had a nice week off. Although we've discovered that Brendan is so used to keeping busy ALL DAY at school that a week of less busy days...Bordom rears it's unly head!


Here it is... 9 planets+ 90 star stickers + 1 astronaut = 100 things in space! Brendan is really excited to share it with his class especially since they are studing space this week. I'm proud of him because he did most of it on his own. He especially liked his face in the astronaut suit!

On Thursday Brendan invited his friend "O" over and they had a fun playdate. On Friday we took Brendan to Dave and Busters for dinner and some video games.

So by Sunday we were exhausted... We spent the morning relaxing. I , of course, got a pedicure! Then we stopped at the library for some playtime and to look for some dinosaur books. (Brendan's latest interest) We even made another batch of banana muffins. I also decided to get out my ice cream maker. It was a wedding shower gift from some friends...6 years ago...not ever used. Why? No clue. But it was SO EASY!! And Brendan really got a kick out of making his own. Needless to say...dessert is going to be extra yummy. I also decided to pull out the slow cooker for an easy dinner. Italian Herb Chicken - with homemade mashed potatoes.
