The First Week

  • Homeschooling kicked off on Monday!
  • As did my WAY cool contest ... if you haven't gone and entered, please do!!!
  • Our days have been busy and good.
  • Kind of like the anniversary weekend I just celebrated with my husband.
  • The big seven. :)
  • We had planned to send the girls to Grandma and Grandpa's for Friday night so that we could grab dinner and a movie without the guilt of making my parents' stay awake wait up for us.
  • However, BBoo started feeling lousy on Thursday. By Friday afternoon she had a fairly high fever and was shunned from the grandparents.
  • Not really "shunned" but my Dad has some nose bleed issues and it really is imperative that he doesn't catch a cold. It is just bad. So, the snotty child was uninvited.
  • That meant our anniversary dinner for two was now an anniversary dinner for three. :)
  • And thanks to my sister, we were still able to go see our movie since we had already Fandangoed the tickets. And at the price of tickets now-a-days, I was glad to not have to try and unload them or lose them. Thanks, K!
  • The rest of the weekend was rather low-key since all activities involved said two-year-old but we did go out to Cracker Barrel for an early lunch and ran several errands before the N's came home.
  • Then I stayed home from church with BBoo since her nose and cough were still not nursery worthy.
  • Then we jumped into homeschooling. :)
  • We have been reading in Proverbs, reading about Christopher Columbus, colonial times and making an All About Me lapbook.
  • We also finished our lunch read-aloud of On the Banks of Plum Creek and jumped straight into By the Shores of Silver Lake today. I forgot that Silver Lake starts off with a bang - in the first two chapters, Mary is blind and then Jack the bulldog dies.
  • It's been a while since I read this book in the series, so I'm looking forward to refreshing my memory.

Happy Wednesday. :)

    Looks like you've had a good week so far. How is it working with N2--is she going along with N1 or are you doing different things with her?

  2. Glad the first week is going well. It feels good to get started, doesn't it?
