Weekly Wrap-up

This week went by both in slow motion and super speed, if that is possible.  I felt like I was always racing to the next thing, but that the routine made it drag out. We were very faithful in school this week, and I think I met most of my goals! (I rarely meet them all!)

We did manage a few fun things this week.  In fact, there was not one day that we didn't leave the house!  However, Friday is here to change that, until I go to work tonight!

Monday- started with swim practice, we did school, and then I surprised the kids with their first ever bowling trip.  You can read about that here as well as watch a totally hysterical video of Little Bit!

Tuesday- swim team, school, gymnastics

Wednesday- swim team, school, gymnastics, date to see Brave with Little Bit

Thursday- you guessed it, swim team.... after the tears (see how crazy I am?), movie, lunch, school, rest (sorta)

Friday- school, nap, work....

What is really working for us right now is the routine.  Kids are loving the Olympic study (though I think they are tired of cutting) and our science lessons with Apologia's Land Animals book. Today is the experiment... (ok...I'm writing this early on Thursday night, just now realizing I forgot to make the jello for the experiment tomorrow... guess what I'll be doing tonight!)  I can't wait to finish the Olympic study next week and have 4 new lapbooks to show off!  I WILL remember to take pictures this time!

How was your week?  I'm linked up with Kris at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

  1. Isn't it amazing how tired a week can make you? I'm glad to hear you got a day at home - and wasn't Brave amazing?

    1. Thanks Patty! I love my days at home, though they are few and far between! Brave was a great movie. I love that it provided the opportunity to talk about how to trust your parents and talk to them about everything, including who you will marry.... dropping little nuggets for one day down the road! ;)
