Weekly Wrap-up: Days 162-166 - T Minus 9 Days!

Over the weekend, we attended J's Spring Court of Honor ceremony for Boy Scouts where he received his Tenderfoot, the first level towards Eagle, and his American Culture and Environmental Science merit badges.

And, after the kids saw my Mom's 2-week-old chicks, we started incubating 4 eggs on Sunday! Check out our EGG-CEPTIONAL study here! (Yeah, I know, but I couldn't help the word-play! LOL)

With warmer days and nights, we worked on the gardens Monday. J is our "Master Gardener" for the veggie bed, and C is our "Master Gardener" for the new flower bed. And S is our "Dirt Digger", which he's VERY happy about! LOL Read my post As Our Garden Grows to see what we did!

C had her first softball practice on Monday and her first game on Thursday. Her team won 8-7 and she had 2 nice hits!

    1. Your week sounds so busy! I am amazed at all you accomplish!

    2. My kids would have loved to be part of the dodge ball! May you have a happy mother's day!

    3. Looks like your 'to complete' lists are getting done. It's so nice to cross things off when they're finished. Congratulations on the badges. My son is going to do his Environmental Science at camp this summer.

    4. I can't wait to see pics of the chickens. We are considering this project. Hope you do a post about the pros and cons and issues. Would love to read about the experience.


    5. Isn't it nice to see things crossed off your list?! I hate that we fell so behind this semester, but we are catching up...slowly. The thought of having no summer break is very motivating though:)

    6. Woot! The light at the end of the tunnel. We've got a few more weeks on history and science but everything else should be done by next week.

      I miss being on a board with you guys. =o(

    7. Let the gardening begin! We are hoping when we get back home from vacation that we can start our garden. Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for linking up :)
