After five years in the same room (except for a short time when we were having some issues), Anna requested she have her own room. Mia didn't want to have her own room, but it has been about three weeks since we made the change and she is doing fine. One of the first things Anna did was make a to-do list for every morning to post on her closet door. The top half is for school days and the bottom is for weekends (lazy day)! She cracks me up.
Last weekend we had the boys while Becky and Arek went to California for work. Sometimes it feels like we have five children still living at home!
The girls went to a holiday baking class yesterday. It wasn't gluten free but you have to have fun once in awhile!
After the class, we headed over to Stel's book launch and signing at Tattered Cover Book Store!
Michelle went all out. Publishers don't promote books any more unless you are a big name author so she has been working hard arranging book signings, school visits, and interviews. We all hope the book does well!
Mia has a project due tomorrow, cut out and disguise Tom the turkey so he doesn't get eaten for Thanksgiving. And then write a story about it.
Mia disguised him as a snow leopard! If I don't say so, he no longer looks anything like a turkey!
She wrote the story without any help. There are a few punctuation errors but I thought she did pretty well!
Tonight Anna made her First Confession. I was so pleased they got to do it with their Faith Formation class during class time this year. Last year, we spent three hours at church for Mia's. We did not get out until 10:00 on a school night because Mia was third to last out of 150 kids! And I had Anna with me because Dan was out of town. Anna fell asleep, of course.
