Random 5 on Friday - November 14th

1.  It was snowing last night.  Nothing significant, but snow nonetheless.  The kids were excited.  The adults (and the dogs) however, are not so impressed with this change in weather.

2.  I can't believe how fast this year has gone.  The holidays are almost here, and I'm due in about 8 weeks!

3.  We've been having a lot of fun with our school lately.  The boys are loving Five in a Row, and we've even created our own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle unit study.  Think turtles, Renaissance art, pizza, and comic books!

4.  The Schoolhouse Review Crew is coming to an end for the year, but next week I'll be sharing some of our favorite reviews for the year when the Blue Ribbon award winners are announced!  That's where the crew members voted for their favorites across a variety of subject areas, so be sure to check it out!

5.  We transitioned Eleanor's crib to a toddler bed several weeks ago to see how it would go (nearly perfect!) and then we officially moved her to a real bed this past weekend, so the crib is reassembled and waiting.  Eleanor looks so tiny in her twin bed but the funny thing is, of the three kids, she was the oldest to start making any of these sleeping transitions.

  1. I am hoping to NOT see snow at all this weekend! I'm looking forward to seeing who won the Blue Ribbon Awards and I'll be doing up a post too.

    1. No actual accumulation of snow, but somehow we lost power in the middle of the night. NO FUN!

  2. Isn't it funny that every Winter we get bummed out even though we know we will meet Winter every year. It's a love/hate relationship when driving in snow has to be done.

    1. I know, I tell my husband every summer we shouldn't complain about the heat because we'll miss it come winter...and every winter we still complain! I grew up in the south though, so even after 10 years, this white stuff still gets to me!
