(Completed on 1/28/2013)

Charlie loves Origami and he is very good at it.  I am not.  I have a difficult time following the written instructions (I would do better if someone showed me how).

Charlie brought home the book Making Origami Christmas Decorations Step by Step.  He didn’t have any homework to do while we waited for Robbie to have his piano lesson, so I went out of my comfort zone and tried really hard to complete this wreath that Charlie wanted to do.  We did it!  His teacher loved it.  The art teacher loved it.  Charlie taught both of them and his whole class how to make this wreath.

This was a good week for me feeling like I got some one-on-one time with the boys.  Robbie and I played Dominos.  He didn’t want Henry to play, but like any three year old, he didn’t last long.  Henry proved to Robbie that yes indeed his attention span is short but that he can also play this game of matching the dots.

Nola Mae is almost 8 months here and moving very quickly around the house.

She is very interested in the stairs.  The safest thing is for us to teach her how to go up and down the stairs safely.

This is my second year that I have helped my friend, Phil, peal potatoes for his Lefse making party.  Henry helped a little.

Then he moved onto watching a movie while Phil and I peeled 100 pounds of potatoes.
