Week 4: In Which We Have Interruptions

Much like the Deer Interruption from Week 3, we had a couple of cool interruptions again this week. Thankfully I keep my camera within reach most of the time.

So THIS is who has been eating our tomatoes!
Found guarding our front door. He was enormous--perhaps 3.5 in.

This was the closest thing to a "normal" school week we have had. Both kids had recovered from their colds and were functioning normally, both went to CrossFit and did their WODs, both did their school work wonderfully. I am so pleased with their progress. Having Molly reading independently in many of her texts has opened up new worlds of possibility, and I am enjoying instructing her so much more than before. I'll admit--teaching my children to read has been the most challenging, stressful job, and now that we are over that hump, we can do anything!

She has happily accepted any reading assignment I have given, loves reading Beast Academy Math, Apologia Science, and has even started reading for pleasure more than she ever has. I am breathing the proverbial sigh.

This week the family who hosts co-op fell ill in myriad ways and we decided to keep our distance and do just the grammar-level co-op at my house. We covered science, Story of the World and Geography, and played with colors in jars of water, just because if you have the food colors out, you should play with them!

To top it all off, it is Friday night and I have managed to get all of the school planning done for next week! Wow! I don't think that has ever happened before!

It was a productive, colorful week, and I am thankful. I can't wait to see what next week holds.

  1. Looks like a very good week! Love it when I get my report up and planning for the next week done on Friday (not that it happens often for me!) :0)


Thanks for stopping by!
