"Wulf the Saxon" Audio Theater Review

The latest audio drama from Heirloom Audio Productions is out, and we had the opportunity to review it! Wulf the Saxon is just as exciting as the other audio theater stories we have reviewed, so if you are interested in English history from the year 1065, be sure to check this one out. If you aren't sure what happened in that time period, this is the story of the Bayeux Tapestry, something that fascinates me and is on my bucket list of "things to see someday."

Weekly Recap: With the last tooth

It's been an eventful week! Someone had a birthday and we enjoyed celebrating together! Now all four children own a different Perplexus. M had physical therapy this week, and Grandma helped with school. The kids love Grandma School days, and I do too! M also had a scoliosis support group to attend which was SO MUCH fun! J lost his last baby tooth and the tooth fairy let him pick a pint of ice cream. And we can't forget watching the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics! Weren't those drones neat?!

Weekly Recap: With the hard choices

We've had an exciting week! For starters, my new computer is finally complete. When we bought it we received enough "rewards" that we could purchase a new monitor. When I bought the new monitor, it came with a gift card that we put towards a second monitor. When I bought the second monitor, it came with a gift card that I used on a bluetooth speaker. It started to get a little monotonous remembering which reward went toward what, but now it's all done and the setup is working wonderfully.

Daddy got a shift change and a promotion. He's excited, I'm excited, but worried about his two jobs and sleep schedule. We've been trying to adjust for a few days and we've got some more changes we want to make yet. It will all work out, I'm sure of it! :)

Weekly Recap: with the birds

We've had up days and down days recently! Some days the kids are dedicated and finish school early. Other days one or two of them are doing school until dinner time. The youngest two are on a roll lately though... always done early. That's been really nice!

We celebrated daddy's birthday with pork chops, green beans, and pudding pies. M made breakfast burritos to freeze so he has food when he goes to work early in the morning. The two youngest made the pies.

Weekly Recap

We took half of a day off for Martin Luther King Jr. day. We chose to do some school Monday so we could have part of Tuesday off and watch the announcement about the new First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. M had therapy so she and I listened to the announcement on the radio.

We also went to the Hof Festival, a German festival held once a year. We love the food and the music, and spending time with extended family!
