I am not even sure what we got done this week to be honest. We moved through our math and language arts without a miss. Making the switch to Teaching Textbooks really was a smart move for us, expensive yes but so is constantly switching programs. I am really happy with the way the year has started off for us. My only complaint is getting all 4 of them to get all of their work done every day. This is a HUGE problem for BabyG. She just doesn’t want to take the time to do the work but of course wants to play. It is just like desserts with her, she wants them all but hates eating dinner to get them. She really is too old to be still having this struggle but she is stubborn like me so the struggle goes on. GlamourGirl has decided she wants to pursue a writer/illustrator. She has a great passion for art and I want to encourage her as much as I can. She now has plans to do what she needs to get into the Houston Art Institute. Drama is by far the favorite class of the bunch we are currently waiting to see who got what part in The Brothers Grim. The wait is tearing them up; it is all they have talked about since Wednesday. BabyG has decided she wants a cucumber garden so she has spent most of yesterday afternoon weeding and preparing a small garden. While she was weeding and digging she found what has to be the smallest snake I have ever seen. We now have a new science project, not sure how I feel about this one and I know SuperDad is less than amused I can tell you that.
I have most of next week’s lessons printed out but did realize we have no books to read so will be hitting Barnes and Noble later today to get something. We are studying colonial times so will reading will be around that time period. I’m sure I will go to quilt store over weekend and find some new marvelous fabric that I MUST have to put on my shelf of other marvelous fabrics. I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend of doing nothing but playing WoW with family and friends. Wishing you all a great weekend.
