What we did last week

Making maps
Moira spent a long time with her Farfar (She decided that Grandpa wasn't fancy enough, so asked for his permission to call him the Swedish word for "father's father") drawing maps of Disneyland and Disneyworld. I'm not sure why, maybe they were planning an invasion?

Moira has been bored with our Goldieblox set for awhile, but Davis still loves it, and plays with it on a regular basis.

Moira made this tunnel, which she planned to put out in the garden and see what happened when it got rained on. She forgot though because of the giant run of sickness we've been having.

Feeding Stewie
Davis loves to be the one to feed Stewie. He spends a couple of minutes making sure there's the exact right amount of kibble in the cup, much to Stewie's consternation.

Moira's font
Moira decided to sign her name with a heart around each letter. I don't know why this made me so happy, but it really did.

We had to spend all of Tuesday out of the house because of carpenter ant spraying, so the kids and I went to Crossroads Mall and did all the things. Moira did a very detailed paint job on this fairy, matching the skin color on all the skin parts, and the hair, and etc.

At dinner that night, she was drawing on her placemat and kept asking for ideas for what to draw next. Instead of saying she couldn't draw what we suggested, she actually tried, and this is what she ended up with. Mirella told her it looked like the pagan story of how Oestra (on the far left) turned a sparrow into a rabbit so it could survive the winter.

Showing off her scrapbook
We have a weekly meeting at Moira's school to talk about what we are working on off site. Moira brought in her scrapbook and read a fair amount of it out loud without hesitation.

Moira and the baby sitter made this castle from boxes, including a drawbridge.

At urgent care with our first ear infection
Davis topped off our week of illness with an ear infection, so we got to try out one of the fancy new urgent care places near us. I have to say, this is a vast improvement from going to the emergency room which is where we always ended up when I had recurrent ear infections as a teenager.

We decided to pretend we were all healthy on Saturday and Moira went to a party and then we went to see the new Muppet movie. Davis walked the whole way to the bus stop and wanted to walk the whole way to the theater too. Sadly, we were wrong about being healthy and Moira now has an eye infection. I'm sorry, people we may have accidentally infected!
