Side note: George's pants were on backwards. I knew it. I knew it all day and did nothing about it.
That was good too.
One of our wonderful neighborhood homeschool families hosted a Thanksgiving party this past week. She planned darling age appropriate crafts that the kids could do by themselves. Smart, very smart. Here are Georgie and me in Indian headdress and Pilgrim bonnet.
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Clark came home from seminary on Monday and said he was ready for a haircut. I tried to play it cool and not celebrate too loudly. I did however tell him to grab his coat and get in the car--we were going to Great Clips immediately!
I usually cut his hair myself, but this felt a little out of my completely untrained league, and if he regretted it I didn't want to shoulder any of the blame. As it is, he likes the shorter hair and his wild pirate hair will live on in infamy in our family pictures.
And last but not least, I did something I've been needing to do for a long time, but just recently realized I needed to do. We created a computer work station in our family room. We used our laptops a lot, but usually just take them all over the house. I felt they were enduring too much wear and tear and they needed a stabler home. Additionally, with more people using them more often, it is harder for me to keep tabs on who is using them and what they are doing on them. We needed a more central, permanent location. Enter a trip to IKEA and TA-DA! Instant computer lab! It's worked out quite nicely thus far.
