|Colonial Brigid. She has loved wearing that hat lately.|
We really didn't do any school work on Monday. My parents were still here from our busy weekend so the kids played card games and visited with them in the morning.
In the afternoon, a box arrived for Brigid:
Teresa has tried to claim the "girl" bear for her own with the defense that she is her friend, but Brigid will not surrender her new "teddy bear". She has become part of the entourage of stuffed animals Brigid brings down and upstairs with her every day.
I did not get much sleep all week and most of the house was hit with some sort of digestive bug and a cold at the same time, so while I mowed and weed-whacked the front, back and side yards, we took it easy most of the week. It was so nice to mow the yard I worked so hard on though - Love it!

All the girls did their math for the week and Cecilia finished her Geography book. Elizabeth and Cecilia each did a spelling lesson and we did one religion lesson, this one focusing on grace and the sacraments. I have to admit, after Felicity's First Holy Communion, it feels like we should be "done" religion for the year.
I spotted Brigid taking pictures of Cecilia with my phone...
|Another reason I have trouble getting things done. Look at this face... how am I supposed to get stuff done with that smile?!?|
|I came back to my office after doing religion with the older girls to find Brigid asleep on the floor. She's so cute and I'm so jealous. lol.|
When Brigid says "Ew" it is so cute it slays me. I finally managed to get a video of her saying it:
And just for fun... Brigid was singing to herself but I only caught a little bit of it at the beginning but she was so cute I just kept filming. You get a glimpse of her squishy duck face though she doesn't do it all the way.
