Year 2, Day 37: Wiped Out!

I am so tired!  It's been a long day, and we didn't get home until 6:30.  I was so done with being with people!  I had to give myself a time out after Jared got home.  Yes, I was that grouchy.  Overall, it wasn't a bad day, but just a full day.  Co op was fine, with some great cutting work done by my class, Abishai got to play in our room for a long time, and the botany students got to work on some neosporin cream.  A little chaotic at times, but it worked.  Abishai went with Grandma to get her car washed and go to the library.  You get out of the car for this particular car wash place, but Abishai was allowed to watch it getting washed through a window.  He said, "vroom vroom, wa wa!" Sweet!  He then slept over 3 hrs at Grandma's house, so we had to stay there until he was done.  Then miscommunications happened between the adults and well, this mama bear was done and got grouchy.  Sigh.  Not my best moments.

Part of the day was spent in communicating about the rest of the week's events.  Grandpa Cook, Leah's Dad, passed away late last night.  So we'll be heading up to Michigan on Wednesday and funeral is on Thursday.  So of course, we all have to rearrange our schedules and figure out who's driving up and when, etc.  At least we'll get to see the cousins for a day or so!  Grandpa Cook was a fine preacher and we are glad he's with Jesus now.  He was a faithful servant of God for many, many, many years.  Sigh.  That leaves my kids just 1 great grandparent and 2 grandparents in their lives.  I feel like our family is shrinking instead of growing bigger!  I guess it will grow again eventually when the kids start getting married and having their kids.  And life continues on.

So, here's a few pictures from today.

Abishai found the cutest lobster in the toddler toys at this church today!  Every kid on PEI needs one!

He wobbles and his pinchers open and close!

Then Abishai lined up these trucks perfectly.  No joke, I didn't help him!

Still his favorite toy because it plays, "ding dong" for the doorbell.

Small enough still for a Bumbo seat!  And one of the 7 year old kids in  my class also could fit her tiny little backside into it!

I love our creative guys and gals!  Human cells made out of Legos!

Same assignment, different interpretations.

Then the history students had to research and write a report on one room of the White House.  Most of them had the appropriate looking furniture!  They did a great job!

Game room! 
Green room!

Presenting history students with certificates saying how many presidents they memorized in order!

The oval office, in Lego form!  How neat!

Whoops, Benaiah started a puzzle and I nearly completed it in like 30 minutes.  I had to make myself stop!

Botany students made homeopathic neosporin lotion today!  It took about 30 minutes to 95% of the task and another 3 hrs for the last step, which was blending it with a stand mixer until it whipped up into a thicker white mixture.

Melting cacao oil/lotion and shea oil/lotion.

Adding ingredients together.

Pouring the infusion through cloth.

The results, ready to use with scars, wounds, or anything else you would put neosporin on!
