Week TEN of Covid-19

Our highlights from the week:

MONDAY we had a Mexico Party - see full post with details HERE.

It was a really rainy week, so TUESDAY afternoon we played some games and ate popcorn, one of our favorite snacks around here.

In between all the raindrops, we drove over to explore the NHC Arboretum. The gardens were especially beautiful right after the rain and on an overcast day.

Once again on WEDNESDAY, we had drawing with Miss Welsh. This week was mermaids, dragons and unicorns which just so happens to be a few of our favorite things!

Notice the rain on the driveway. The rain kept coming off and on all day, but we played in our driveway and even caught a baby frog.

Last Saturday morning all the kids helped Jake clean out our crawlspace under the house. We had a vapor barrier installed on THURSDAY under the house. Jake paid Lily & Ella $10 each for helping the whole time. Benny & Wren earned $5. It saved us $700 to do it ourselves, minus the $30 Jake paid the kids. That was worth it! We let the kids spend their money they earned. The each had saved all their Christmas money for our Africa trip, which has been delayed to a later date, not sure when that trip will happen. So we let them pick something out online and use their earned money plus some of their Christmas money to purchase one thing. That was exciting!
Ella & Wren spent their money on umbrella strollers for their babies. In between all the rain we have taken them to our little park for walks and it has been fun!

Lily spent the money she earned on Plus-Plus Blocks.

Benny spent his money on a new LEGO boat set.

Thank Goodness It's FRIDAY - the sun made an appearance all day and we hit the pool for hours!
