Weekly Report... Where Did the Week Go?

I cannot believe it is Friday already! Another week has flown by, and I know I didn't quite get through my goals for the week...

~ Establishing a routine.... About halfway there
~ Getting my project/experiment book basket set up
~ Switching out some books in my Afternoon Basket
~ Finish cleaning the kitchenand get the living room done (I am deep cleaning one room at a time)
~ Go swimming at a pool with friends!
~ Try to get out hiking again over the weekend, or maybe even mid-week
~ Get geared up for the big airshow that happens around here next weekend!

Well, not too bad, since we did make progress this week! Additionally, we:
~ read from The Wright Brothers
~ finished reading both Smoky House and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great
~ watched some nature documentaries
~ ate lots of tomatoes and zucchini from our garden
~ had The Boy give The Girl an art lesson
~ decided where to start in history in a couple of weeks!

I also shopped this week, which I generally loathe doing. I had to finally buy some new pants, at M's insistence, having gone from a size 18 at my heaviest to a size 10 now. As a "reward", I also got the bulk of our homeschool shopping done for the year... a new math book for The Girl, some fun history supplements, and a bunch of science equipment from Home Science Tools. We're really looking forward to trying out biology this fall! I consider this purchase a great investment...

Pretty spiffy, isn't it? I'm hoping it will at least get us through the next few years of science - it should!

Anyhow, it has been a good week, though it really went too fast. Next week, we'll work more on adding in subjects/establishing our fall routine, and having some end-of-summer fun naturally. I think more swimming and some blackberry picking are tentatively on the agenda.

Hope you all had a good week too!

  1. Our microscope we purchased 14 years ago is still going strong and we are loaning it to our Tutoring Center this year for Bio! Good equipment is a blast!


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Thanks for stopping by! I love comments :)
