The last couple of weeks have been interesting around here. After deciding what we were going to be working on this year, I ended up changing things up. But that's one of the beautiful things about homeschooling, isn't it?
My original plan had been to put the kids weekly work in one folder each and then pick and choose each day. After a few days of doing that, I realized there HAD to be an easier way to do it. So, I created folders for each day of the week, one set for each child. Little Man's are blue, and Baby Girl's are yellow. I'll sort their printed pages in to each day, and mark any online work in my calendar. My plan is to work on the next week's lessons each Wednesday.
I also recently found a meal plan notebook that I thought I could actually keep up with. I came across it at Homemade By Carmona. It's free and she gives great directions for setting up your own.
Once I decided to do the daily folders, we finished up the work that was in the original folders for the kids, so this coming Monday, we're starting fresh.
Yesterday afternoon, Little Man and I did some art with chalk pastels and using tutorials on Hodgepodge.me. We did the Tree Silhouette and Harvest Moon Nocturn. It surprised me that he wanted to do some, since he's usually NOT that in to art.
This one is mine.
This one is Little Man's.
I did this one on my own, then he came in wanting to do one, and did the one below.
This is a "hummingbird" he wanted to do by himself.
And that's about it for our week. I'm off to a women's event at our church this morning, the kids are going to spend the night with Grandma and Grandpa so Big Man and I can celebrate my birthday. Our "celebration" will probably consist of going to bed early. LOL
Have a wonderful weekend!
