Wow! This week was busy…or so it seemed. The new routine I put into place last month is habit now and our days run smoothly and rather quickly. Before I know it the day is done! The only wrench in our week right now is co-op. We enjoy the co-op but having it in the middle of the week just slays out flow and brings more dissonance than harmony to our week. The kids feel it too so unless the group changes to a Monday or Friday we will not join back up in the fall. So we will enjoy the group while we are around. I’ll be a little sad since I’ve already gotten attached to a few of the cuties in the nursery.
This week Middle Boy’s Wacky Revision project was posted on the Brave Writer blog. He strutted around like a pretty peacock for a while. He thought it was pretty cool to be featured on someone else’s blog! I was slightly mortified that I had type “through” instead of “threw” in the revised portion of his paper. My kids were delighted to see my dictation mistake available for all to see on the web. Everything Middle Boy does is illustrated…even his math.
Our sweet little neighborhood friend came by this week to play with the kids. She loves to draw on my school board and usually asks me about whatever is on the board and then erases it and draws pictures. I left her to her fun and went to work on dinner. When I peeked in to check on her she was writing words on the board and quizzing Littlest to see if he could read what she had written. Thankfully, he could read all of her words and even spelled a word or two for her. The neighborhood kids get a real kick out of the school room.
Yesterday we celebrated 100 days of school…finally! The move and illnesses put us about a month behind schedule. Last month we started schooling on Saturday in order to finish this school year out in a timely manner. After a couple of hours working on math and finishing up a few read-alouds we went to Best Donuts in Lawrenceburg to celebrate. If you are anywhere near Lawrenceburg KY you must make the effort to get to this family run donut shop and indulge in their treats!!! They gave us a few fresh warm donuts while we
were waiting! Their filled donuts are awesome and they do not pipe in the filling until you make an order. Yum! Yum! Yum! We’ve always gone out for donuts on our one-hundredth day of school and I am glad to have found a wonderful place to continue our family tradition near our new home town. We then went to Bardstown for shopping and lunch at one of our favorite restaurants.
Next week I have two reviews due (Faith Builders Bible and The Dragon and the Raven) for the TOS Review Crew at the same time. (Yikes!!!) I’ve been busy in my spare time trying to get those reviews started so I am not frantic when the due date rolls around. I also hope to have my next post for our Beautiful Feet Books Medieval study up this week too. The kids are currently working on new reviews for MathUSee and Logic of English and we received a new review from Memoria Press this week as well. Fun times! Oh, and we have another coming from Apologia soon…
