Tuesday Tidbits... Hello again!

It has been a little while since I blogged, but we have been busy, busy, busy.

~ I did it - I cut down my resources for homeschooling this year. I finally found a book (or two) that I really like for a science spine. I dropped American history so that we can really get into ancient world history. I did add in Writing Skills (from EPS) for The Boy, to help him with sentence/paragraph structure and all that. I wrote a schedule, and set aside an official time each day for homeschooling. Now to see if it actually works!

~ What have we been busy with? Fishing, camping, a field trip, and more! We took last week off from homeschooling, in part because of all that was going on, and in part so that I could refine my plans for the year.

~ Goal this week: to get all the pictures of the above activities off my camera! Look forward to a Wordless Wednesday post tomorrow!

~ I admit, I am very stressed out lately. Stressed enough I've put back on 5 pounds, so I am down to a 45 pound loss. We're still waiting to here if M is actually getting unemployment... we should find out by the end of the week. I'm not anticipating any real problems, but I still worry.

~ So to combat the 5 pounds (and the rest I still need to lose) I am implementing the "rules" from Bob Harper's new book (albeit with a little more [good] fat in the diet). I'll let you know how it goes!

Hope you all have a good week!
