7 Quick Takes


Today is going to be in the 100's again but tomorrow we will have a cool change. I am so looking forward to it. My plans for today are to do our Saturday clean up, take the children to the pool, write my menu plan for the fortnight, do the shopping and sit under the air conditioner.


We have been going to Saturday night mass a lot. Steve has been singing with the choir and playing guitar sometimes. We have a nice routine worked out for it now. Clean up from our day starts at 5pm. I cook tea then so that we just need to reheat it when we get home from mass. The children get changed around 6.00 and we get to mass at 6.15. If we need to get to confession we try to get there around 6pm.


I have managed pretty well with my 5mart Martha five this week. I have only had two cups of coffee each day and drank lots of water. I have cleaned most of my sewing nook out and should finish it off today. Spelling and Maths has been marked each day and I have cooked tea each morning. The only thing I didn't do was keep Tom's diary up to date. It went missing though on Tuesday. Hopefully we will find it today and I will catch up.


I am really glad the week without our carolla is over. We got the car back last night. Even though it doesn't have as many features as our volkswagen, I do prefer to drive it. It is just an easy car to get around in.


Last night I opened an windows live account. I am looking into ways for some Catholic mums to have a regular chat online in a group.

I asked my teenage children about the options and it looks like msn chat can have a group of people chatting all together. Hopefully I can work this out fully and we can organise a mum chat time.


this week for science we did a cool experiment. Here is a youtube video of the experiment.

The experiment was a lot of fun. After we had balloon races. We had a go at holding the balloons in midair and letting go together to see if the carbon dioxide one hit the ground first. It did work.


We are going to do some paper mache this week. Tom wants to make a rocket ship. I thought if I put a bit of cardboard on the top of the balloon we could make a rocket ship shape. It doesn't really look like it though. It looks more like an ice cream. Any suggestions for a rocket ship shape would be appreciated.

Don't forget to pop over to Jennifer's for her quick 7 and other's as well.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
