Monday, Monday....

First of all, a belated

Mine started off well, with The Girl bringing me breakfast in bed! I love that she's old enough, and capable enough, to do this. The rest of the day was okay, but by nighttime, after a lovely evening picnic, I had my first ever migraine settle in, and then I felt like this...

It was miserable. Thankfully, M took good care of me, and today I feel much better, though kind of that hollowed out feeling you get after a flu.

I am happy to report, I finally solved my history dilemma!!! We're going to spend the next 7 weeks reading through the book below. The kids can keep running lists of events, people, stories, etc., that intrigue them, and that they would like to explore in more depth, and then in August, after a 6 week summer vacation, we can start up with their lists!

I really like the looks of this book, kind of like an up-to-date version of A Little History of the World (our back-up book for a quick overview of world history).

Anyhow, I'm off work today, recovering from the nasty headache, so hopefully we'll get some good homeschooling done. We may even go to a Civil Air Patrol meeting tonight, to learn more about it, and see if The Boy is really interested.

Have a good week!


  1. From Then To Now looks interesting. At first glance it reminds me of Oxford First Ancient History. I'll have to request it from my library and take a closer look. So, you'll be doing more of a world history overview, rather than American this fall?

  2. Oh dear! I'm sorry to hear about your migraine! :(


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 :)
