Last week was a little different due to my husband being home due to a back injury and then I was heading out of town on Thursday.
The boys were really not into school on Tuesday and asked to quit early. I didn't fight it - that is one of the joys of homeschooling :-)
We took Wednesday off because I had so much to do to get ready to leave on Thursday. I made three different trips out during the day in order to tie the trips into naps since my husband is confined to a chair most of the time. Thursday was already a planned day off - Darryl had a doctor's appointment in the morning and then I left after lunch.
So, where did I go? I went on a long-planned scrapbook weekend with friends. It was fully paid for and, to back out, would have cost me what I paid so we decided that it actually cost less to go - since the amount of "spending" money was much less then what I had already paid. It was so much fun to go away with some friends AND to get a ton of scrapbooking done. Now I'm back to getting creative with a way to keep my stuff a little more handy so I can do some pages each week. I have a few ideas. . .. my dining room is the size of the Grand Canyon afterall, isn't it? LOL
So, here we are at Monday of a new week. I think we are taking this week off - it is supposed to be next week - but I'm kinda buried and behind right now. To start with the boys have a dentist appointment this morning so we wouldn't even do school. I still need to unload and unpack plus I have some organizing to do. Added to that the boys and I all have colds (as do the kids I babysit for - they aren't even here today they are so sick). I do have a few fun ideas to do so we will do those, review the letters, numbers and sighwords we've learned so far and even do some review worksheets. I also have birthday and halloween things I need to get a grasp on so that I'm not scrambling at the last minute. Taking this week to do all of that will be a big blessing :-)
So, three cheers for a "week off"!
