|My beautiful girl:)|
This year Firedrake wanted to go to the Melting Pot for her Birthday dinner! We don't have birthday parties (haven't since the kids were very little) Instead the kids get to choose a family outing such as going to a fancy dinner, a play, a concert or other event. We usually keep it to just family but this year we surprised Firedrake by inviting her friend and mother to join us for dinner. Then the girls had a sleep over.

MarioFan is working on Ancient China in our history lessons. My parents went to China several years ago and were able to tour the great emperors tomb. I brought out the items my parents gave us and we took a look at the various terra cotta soldiers .
|tried to identify what was what based on the book we have|
|information provided in the box in Chinese and English|
|we read a tourist guide about the site and everything that was found on the site.|
I have been learning how to loom knit and made my first mitten and learned how to pearl knit on a round loom. Next up is to learn how to loom knit socks and then I will be a step closer to my goal of being able to knit hat, scarves, gloves and socks to donate to the homeless shelters.
There are a few mistakes but I am pleased with how it turned out and it is very warm. Just need to keep practicing :) the blue mitten shows pearl knitting whereas the red below is just your standard loom knit.
|I am still not great on gauging the thumb it is either too big or too small:)|
Seems like not much going on this week but I can assure you I am running around like crazy and we are all working hard on our lessons:)
