There is a park downtown that is always rotating sculptures. We pasted the park on the way to drop Pf off at her painting classand the sculptures looked really interesting. One looked like a swing and the girls wanted to swing on it. After dropping Pf off for class, the rest of us headed to the park. What we thought was a swing was actually a big spider web. The girls enjoyed climbing on it anyway. The sculptures on display now have been the most unusual that I have seen so far but the girls sure enjoyed them.

Pf did such an awesome job today! She was award the best defense star for how well she stayed motivated on defense and the passes and shots she blocked. After her last game hubby and I have been coaching her on different aspects of the game. I ran her through a sprint drill to help build her speed and motivation. Well all her work this week paid off because she was faster and all over the girl she was guarding. On offense, she made a point to stay open and assisted on several baskets. Her team worked well together today and won a great game!

Butterfly has been working hard today to learn how to count money. She is in level beta with math u see. I really like how they demonstrate the value of money. The blocks we are using are party of the program. Butterfly first built the number using blocks, then she placed the appropriate money on each block. She loved being able to draw in the decimal point on the white board. This method made it really easy for her to see the worth of each coin and how much more valuable a dollar is.
For Christmas, the girls received chocolate money from uncle Tim. This was perfect timing because currently the middle girls are counting money in thier math curriculum. Butterfly practiced counting and then enjoyed eating one before doing her math sheet.

Today pf had a writing assignment. She needed to write a how to essay. She wanted to write about how to make a doll but pf always has to put a crafty touch anywhere she can. So of course she made a doll while doing her writing assignment.
