{ Little Girls Weekend }

The girls had a great weekend together and we did some of their favorite things!  Anna Grace was on a field trip to Atlanta and Harrison was having some boy time with Cameron, so we took the opportunity to do some fun things that 9 year olds like to do!

We started out with a trip to the movies to see Hotel Transylvania on Friday night.  Cute movie!  We loved it!

We did a little shopping Saturday morning and stopped for lunch at Olive Garden....their choice!  We even got dessert!  :)

Throughout the weekend we played Apples to Apples.  They LOVE this game.  Lee and I took turns being the judge, so they thought it was extra fun.

These two don't get much alone time, so I think they really thought it was a treat!  Lee and I enjoyed it too!

{ Harrison - the special person of the day }

Harrison's Tiger Time teacher (reading/language arts teacher, for those of you not in Saltillo!) does fun things in her class.  Harrison thinks so anyway!  Each day a different student is chosen to be the "special person" for the day.  The most recent SP activity involved preparing a circle map with information about Harrison and then the students used the circle map to write notes about him that they used to make a "quilt."  Sorry for all the quotation marks!  :)

Here's Harrison with this circle map.  Are your kids using circle maps for learning these days?

I just noticed the vacuum in the background....please ignore! :)

Here he is with his quilt.  It's basically index cards taped to colored paper, but sounds more special when you call it your quilt!
Now for the cute/funny part.  The kids wrote, and some even illustrated, things about Harrison.  Keep in mind, this wasn't graded for spelling!
Harrison is quiet.  He is always listening.  (ha!)

Harrison is fast.  He runs fast because God made him like that.

Harrison is kind.  He always helps me when I need his help.  
I think he and Kennedy were helping each other too much...they have since been separated!  :)

Harrison is a good listener.  He knows everything.  

Harrison is funny.  He always makes people laugh.
Harrison is fast.  He can run fast.  

So sweet!  I love first grade class work.  H was pretty proud of all the compliments too!  He especially likes hearing that he "runs fast!"  Such a boy!  

Happy Weekend, all!

{ dress shopping }

Anna Grace has her Homecoming dance coming up next weekend, so we went to look for a dress.  She tried on just a few and made a selection quickly.

Love it!  She said the girls at her school are accessorizing with glitter Vans shoes, so she's got some black ones in mind.  Can't wait to see it all together!
