I haven't had time lately to do weekly updates since spring break, and here we are on week 31. We have been dragging the last few weeks--really dragging. Aside from one really great field trip to the National Zoo, there are no fun activities on which to report or cute pictures to reflect the idyllic nature of our homeschooling journey. It hasn't been very idyllic, frankly. I didn't take out my camera at all. The house is a mess, piles of library books are everywhere, Littlest Pet Shop seems to have taken over the family room, and there may even be some towels in piles upstairs where they were once left wet. Now they probably stink. (Thank God for baking soda and Lynelle who told me to put it in the laundry!) Okay, so before you think that it's all doom and gloom around here, let me share some photos of our wonderful day at the zoo...

Thankfully, the following morning was a complete turn-around, and attitudes were different. We ended up having a very successful school week and accomplishing more than I had hoped in a very timely fashion, leaving lots of free time for the kids to pursue other things that they have been wanting to do.
So...the plan is to complete Tapestry of Grace up through week 33. We will take a week off, clean up the house and school stuff, take our vacation, then over the summer we plan to continue math and language and any remaining reading that is assigned for weeks 34-36.
