Monday - No lessons. We did a lot of reading but we were all not feeling really well and so we had no formal lessons.
Tuesday - This was the 3rd and for us that means it's time to do the majority of our monthly errand running.
In either case, other than when we weren't home, this picture pretty much describes both days...
Wednesday - We did just under two hours worth of lessons. Peanut finished everything on her schedule, YCJ did about half, and ECJ got stuck on something because his mind wandered. When Daddy walked into the house from taking the neighbors up to the store we headed back out the door. By the time we got home I was sporting 4 new skeins of yarn from WalMart and this tote full of yarn from the thrift store!
Thursday - We spent the day going to garage sales and looking for houses for sale. Yup, I know that we only moved into this house a little over a year ago, we're not finished remodeling it, and we hadn't planned on moving. Events out of our control in the community have made us aware that it is possibly time for some change around here. We topped the day off with a trip to Dairy Queen and an evening drive because the weather had cooled and it was pleasant to be out. We did find some good school materials while we were at the garage sales:
|3" binder already with sleeve|
protectors and a snapping
|Scholastic Children's Dictionary,|
Webster's Thesaurus, and
None of the books I found were an absolute must but 3 out of the four were ones I was going to buy any way at some point. The Painless Algebra book I bought on a whim as ECJ needed something to challenge him this summer and it looked like it might be fun. If we don't use it this summer we will next year sometime.
So, now it's Friday... I plan on the children doing some lessons. The yard work getting done. The folding of the laundry being caught up. And a ton of crochet work happening over the weekend. I doubt very much we'll venture far from home today as we've been on the go most of the week.
All in all it sure felt more like a summer schedule week than a normal schedule week. But, at this point the only thing left text wise that isn't finished is YCJ's English book, which will only take her a few weeks to completely finish at a relaxed pace. Peanut has a lot of workbooks to finish up but nothing that can't be handled by the end of summer. We'll buckle back down for next week and then swing into our summer schedule. All in all it was a good week... Now, if only Daddy and I could get rid of our coughs everything would be semi-normal. :-)
