Bunk beds (22/180)

The girls have been longing for a bunk bed for a full year or more and this week we got one - and gave their room a complete make-over.  D went to IKEA with me and helped find and choose the bed (the one we wanted wasn't there and we had to decide on a different one) and accessories.  W and R helped by moving the old bed out of the room.  M and R built the actual bunk bed.  Then the girls and I spent LOTS of time organizing and sorting out stuff from the room to fit it into the new configuration, which includes a desk for each girl.  They are very excited.  D is also calculating how many 'finishing touches' she can afford with money she's saved from birthdays, etc., like a mirror, fairy lights, or similar.

That didn't leave a lot of time for more academic pursuits this week, but ... W, R and D worked with LOF.  W read independently.  R read with support and completed The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 (I Survived, #1)The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 by Lauren Tarshis.  D and J practiced reading.

I read to the girls:  What Baby NeedsWhat Baby Needs by William Sears
God's DreamGod's Dream by Desmond Tutu

Kings of the CastleKings of the Castle by Victoria Turnbull

W led a D and D game for a friend's birthday party.

This week included 3 days of instruction.
