We started school back after our spring break and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I guess I was ready to get back into a good routine.
The routine lasted one day until my big boys had some outside work that had to be done. They still did their school, but things got mixed up a little.
The new kitten (still unnamed) is taking up some of Abbie's time, but she is getting everything else done also. And she has kept her room reasonably clean for 7 days now. It might be a new record.
After school today Rebekah is coming to spend the afternoon. I need some swing time and as an added bonus I will get to hold her four month old while I swing. Delicisio!
In Our Homeschool This Week:
We did finish Story of the World Volume 3 and I have to say I love this series. I am learning so much. The last section was about the Gold Rush in 1849 and I have to order Volume 4 so I went to the library Wednesday afternoon to get some fill-in material. I found some neat things about mountain men and boomtowns that have now become ghost towns. I think its neat anyway. My kids will be able to tell you in about 20 years if having a mom who read them these kinds of books was "neat." I am really hoping they say yes.
The homeschool catalogs are rolling in and I am doing my usual spring come-apart about what to do for next year. Especially now that Tyler is entering high school. Oh my stinking goodness, my brain is overloaded with questions.
A Quote To Share:
"Well! Of all things that ever were or will be!" said by Mrs. Rachel Lynde in Anne of Green Gables. I am reading it out loud to Abbie right now and we decided this will be our saying whenever we are astonished at something. I heard her say it while playing with her cousin yesterday and my heart smiled.
