Weekly Report (9/12/08)

This was our first week of almost full school!  I added science, spelling, Latin, and Greek to the math and Tapestry of Grace assignments we were doing.  I also resumed phonics, math, and handwriting with my younger son.  I am so shocked, because it went smoothly!


My beautiful schedule that I posted here was made and admired for over 2 months before I actually put it to use.  Part of me didn’t want to try the schedule because I knew it wouldn’t work. (I tend to be one of those glass half-empty people.) The perfectionist in me was planning for failure.  However, it actually went well.  Our days flowed smoothly.  The children got their schoolwork down.  I read books to my younger 2 children.  I did my housework.  I cooked dinner.  WOW!
