- Finished the 200 Sit Up Challenge -- able to do 220 consecutive sit ups! What an amazing thing! She started with being able to do 31. I also started this challenge. I think I did 6. I didn't get beyond week 2 or 3. I need to start again.
- She is keeping up with her 25,000 word NaNoWriMo novel. Looks like she'll be a winner for the 5th year in a row!
- Packed and delivered 3 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. She wanted to do this in lieu of my buying presents. I'll probably still buy a few things...since my idea of a completely homemade Christmas hasn't even gotten started.

- Took care of DD11mo whenever I needed help this week. Actually she does this every week. I just needed a lot more help this week! We rearranged the seating at the dining room table so DD11mo is on the end...this way DD13 can feed her and I can eat. It is working out great!
- Scored a perfect 100% A+ on her first Henle Latin Unit Test!
- Keeping up with her NaNo novel also, another 5th year winner in the making!
- Faithfully working on his NaNo novel every morning, he'll be a winner for the 2nd year if he keeps it up!
- Finished Writing with Ease Level 2! Now on to Level 3. Might take this level a little slower -- but we're still set to finish the whole book this school year.
- Continuing to do well with MUS Pre-Algebra, Great Latin Adventure 2, and Challenging Word Problems 4.
- Did their schoolwork when I was available and got it all done!
- Played inside together a lot.
- Played outside together a lot.
- Helped to completely clean the boys' bedroom! Now they have 3 boxes of books (still no bookshelf), 1 box of stuffed animals, 1 box of Playmobil, and 3 boxes of "miscellaneous." Perhaps next week we'll sort the miscellaneous. Or not.

- Learning to empty the spoons from the dishwasher.
- Getting quicker at climbing the stairs before anyone notices.
- Played in the yard wearing her new shoes! Finally.
