7. B and I have a mini book club going that involves reading one Percy Jackson book every two days (more or less). The books are fun and entertaining, but we only have two left so we'll likely have to check out more soon.
8. Brent resumed classes this week, which means he is at dorm night tonight and all the usual semester stuff for our family is officially underway.
9. This weekend B is having his friends birthday party at Laser Quest (again). It is Minecraft themed. I have done perilously little to prepare for said party, but when they aren't at your house it is much simpler. We will, of course, have a second family party on Tuesday evening and may decorate in a very small way for that one. Can you believe he will be 8?
10. Christmas at the farm was fun. I am always dubious about if the Beef Wellington is going to be worth the time/ingredients, but oh my it so is. We also had Goose for the first time and an assortment of British puddings, among many other things. It was a great time and I think definitely time to move on to birthday season after a lot of wonderful Christmas in the last two months! Our decorations are mostly down, which is helping a lot in that regard.
