I'm glad to report that everyone around our house is feeling much better. :) We took it easy in the classroom this week by starting our lessons later than usual each morning and relaxing in the afternoons. We still accomplished a lot, so I don't feel bad about us taking the next few days off. We've already completed four weeks of school!
Tomorrow I'll be spending the day packing for our quick trip to Florida. Mr. C prefers to drive at night (no potty stops to make or meals to purchase), so we'll be leaving after the Reformer's Unanimous meeting at our church tomorrow night. It usually takes us about 6 hours to make the drive at night if we're really
moving along adhering to the speed limit.
Mr. C will be preaching on Sunday at our home church in Florida where his dad pastors. My in-laws are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this weekend! The church is hosting a huge anniversary party for them after the Sunday evening service. The kids are so excited to be heading "home" for a few days. They've been talking all week about going swimming in Mimi's pool, and they've been working on a special song that they want to sing during the service in honor of their grandparents. We're looking forward to a wonderful weekend. I'll share some pictures when we get back next week.
Today was my first trip into town this week. Bookworm had her piano lesson, and then we stopped by the library to pick up a few books. Bookworm has been living up to her nickname; she's read five books this week, each of which have at least 150 pages. I wonder where she gets it from. :) I grabbed a couple of books to read in the car on our trip so that I don't drive my husband crazy. I get a teensy bit nervous traveling on the interstate with all the big rigs and incapable drivers. I trust Mr. C's driving abitilies completely; it's all the nuts on the road that I'm afraid of.
Tonight I thought it would be nice to just relax a little bit before our busy weekend. I've been in the mood for a Jane Austen movie lately, so I checked out Sense and Sensibility at the library for me and Mr. C to watch tonight. I'm sure he's been
dreading it looking forward to it all day. I made a little snack for us to munch on during the movie. Jane Austen and chocolate cookies--it doesn't get much better than this.
