Tanya's Daily Scoop
Elisa's Daily Scoop
Happy Friday!! Did you make it through the first week of 2016 in good spirits?
I did! It wasn't as bad as I thought getting back into the swing. The kids bounced back pretty fast, getting back on the early to bed, early to rise sleep schedule. They did remarkably well with all of their homework this week as well.
I have to say, I'm so proud of my girls when it comes to school work. I never have to remind them about assignments and homework - they are so diligent about their responsibilities.
Now, unfortunately, they still both require hands-on help with the actual work. But, that's ok. I have two major projects for which I need to get supplies and both of which I will need to help build and assemble with each girl.
Ironically, both projects have to do with "travel."
Kelsey has a book report due that needs to be structured as a travel journal! We were both super excited about this assignment!
As far as Gianna's project is concerned, it's not technically "travel-related" but since she was given the assignment of making a model of a South American architectural structure.
With a little help from mom, we decided on "Machu Picchu." And why not, her dear cousin, Tanya has visited this ancient and historic location.
So, I'll be heading out to the craft store this weekend to gather all of the supplies for this model.
Today also marks the first day of Tanya's first trip of 2016!! I'm so excited to hear about her departure to Death Valley National Park.
Death Valley National Park is one of our nation's national parks located in California and Nevada.
It is situated east of the Sierra Nevada, occupying an interface zone between the arid Great Basin and Mojave deserts in the United States.
I CANNOT wait to see all the great photos my cuz will be snapping away.
I'll be telling you more facts and information about this west-coast national park later in the week!!
Happy weekend!! Back atcha tomorrow!
