It's Weekly Wrap-up time at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. This has been a weird but very social week here in SmallWorld.
On Monday, we went to the pool for the first time this summer. I completely forgot that Duncan began Cub Scout Twilight Camp that evening; fortunately, Donna reminded me when she called to figure out carpooling. And that's all I remember about Monday.
On Tuesday, we went to the pool again. This time we stayed a bit too long and got a little fried. But I got to chat a long time with my friend Julie, who had been out of town for awhile. I made something delicious for supper, but I don't remember what.
On Wednesday, we did not go to the pool. I have no idea what we did. I think I planted some flowers and pulled some weeds. I probably did a lot of laundry.
On Thursday, Jesse left at 8 a.m. for Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in New Mexico. If you know anything about Boy Scouts, you know that Philmont is the pinnacle event of the scouting experience. The group put their reservation in two years ago, and at last, their trip begins. And that's why I can't remember anything except the pool about Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday: our entire lives have basically been consumed by Preparing for Philmont for the last week. And now he's gone for an amazing 12-day adventure, plus 4 days of driving there and back. Maybe I can remember some stuff now. Yeah, and on Thursday, we went to the pool after Laurel's flute lesson. We were there for 20 minutes and then a huge storm hit, so we can home. It's lovely to live a minute from the pool.
On Friday, surprise! We went to the pool. We had loads of fun and stayed way too long, but it was worth it. Duncan and I also planted a bunch of flowers today. We're headed out now to the closing ceremonies for Cub Scout camp, which will include a bonfire.
And so there you have our first full week of summer vacation. I think we spent it appropriately: a lot of pool time, packing and departing on a very big trip, Cub Scout camp, sleeping late, and planting flowers.
How was your week?
