Good evening, coffee drinkers and non-coffee drinkers. This has been a pretty busy weekend, so I’m behind on the post I intended to write yesterday afternoon (although I now have more to write about), as well as blog reading, commenting, and then minor household crap like sweeping and folding the laundry. (We all know that the household crap can wait.)
Since I’m sure you’re wondering what I’ve been so busy with, I’ll tell you: soccer, soccer, soccer. Okay, only a little of it was soccer. Little Man had a soccer game yesterday, and his team won 2-0. Little Man spent half of the game at midfield and half on offense. He loves playing midfielder, but isn’t a fan of playing on offense, although he (quite maturely) said, “I might not like it, but I’ll play where I’m needed.” He did well at both spots and is super excited about the next game. He has become intensely interested in it this season, which has been nice to see! (Can you tell this paragraph was mainly a way to get a parent brag in?)
After soccer yesterday, we got a start on our spring cleaning, which meant cleaning out the kids’ clothes drawers and stuff. We also went through all of Baby Girl’s clothes that were in storage and packed up everything that didn’t have sentimental value to give away.
The little preemie clothes were killing my ovaries. “Must have another baby!” they shouted at me and Sam, but Sam wasn’t hearing it and told them to piss off.
The cleaning out extended into today, when we focused mostly on Little Man’s room, which has looked especially rough since getting half a toy story between Christmas and his birthday last month (despite getting rid of stuff before the holidays). He has done okay with keeping stuff out of his floor, but that meant piling toys up on every surface. On top of that, there were all of his collections, some of which needed to go, such as the fruit seeds collection. Thankfully there was no “dead bugs collection” this time.
After we finished cleaning LM’s room, LM and I worked on his school project. This semester, Little Man had to select a topic that relates to Japan or India and do a report about the topic, as well as come up with a costume and include an interactive presentation. After some discussion, he decided on origami. That sounded easy enough, until we actually tried origami together.
Little Man is just like me in some ways, which means his brain shuts down when there’s instructions overload.
I found a couple origami projects intended for preschoolers, and Little Man and I both were able to complete them. Whew! We’ve been working on putting together a PowerPoint presentation on origami, which has meant doing fun stuff like research. We finished it today, so the only thing left is practicing delivering the presentation.
That’s about it for my weekend. Do tell me about yours!
