took many more photographs--
--and drew and created and imagined. Sydney did all of the decorating of the balancing butterflies, painted many pictures from the icky Disney Princess coloring book that she bought with her Christmas money--

attended the county fair, riding the rides and seeing the sights; played in the dirt; played with friends; played on crutches; and hiked downtown. Will's newest method of getting around is to hop on her sound leg, and she has developed this skill to stunning heights. She can also go up and down stairs and inclines on her crutches, now, which is a pretty big deal. Sydney is again rocking Level 1 of swim class (sigh), is my go-to girl when I need some basil picked, and has taken it upon herself to keep all the household pencils nice and sharp.
Will has been heavy into creating signage this week, and Sydney is painstakingly working through copying out a letter to a friend that she dictated to me earlier this week, inviting said friend to go swimming with her:
Sydney is also a rock star:
And that's how we homeschooled this week!
P.S. Nope, all those photos of Sydney were not taken on the same day. She just likes that dress!
