We didn’t accomplish near as much as I had planned but at least we made some progress. I spent a LOT of work time at the computer….many little things that I had been putting off during our two weeks in eastern AR. Plus the usual weekly business reports/emails/printing/filing etc.
Monday was kind of a crazy day. Bo and I went into town for the BIG ultrasound for all the measurements and such. I’ve been looking forward to it for many reasons, mainly because I’m not growing as much as I did with the older four boys. Of course Bo says everything is fine and I AM growing, but I just need a little more reassurance. 🙂 When we got there, we found out that our appointment was rescheduled for the following Monday. Disappointing…especially since I didn’t get a call or email letting me know but we had a few errands to run, and Bo and I enjoyed having a little together time. So now THIS COMING Monday is the big day. 🙂 The rest of my morning was spent getting some paperwork done, but we did get a little bit of schoolwork completed.
|Math time! Yes my boys need hair cuts and yes I was busy folding laundry as they worked. ha!|
We started a new chore system so the boys and I spent some time going over that and then I spent a LOT of time helping them adjust to the first day. It’s a change we’ve needed for quite some time and so far it’s been fairly successful. We’re still working on making it a habit of course.
Tuesday and Wednesday kind of blurred together. I know we did well both days but man…..did they fly! I could have used a couple extra hours each day.
Part of my problem this week was that I stayed a day behind in my mind. Yesterday afternoon, after spending a lot of time on the computer getting some paperwork done, I reminded myself that I had a meeting in town…on Thursday…the next evening. I was a little more than shocked when the phone’s calendar alarm went off and I saw that the meeting actually was about to start…….in 15 minutes…..because it was in face already Thursday, not Wednesday like I believed. I live 25 minutes away from the meeting place and I wasn’t even dressed for it. I threw on some decent clothes and ran out of the door. I had to call my mom to come over and fix dinner for the boys since I hadn’t even gotten that far.
The meeting was for spring co-op teacher planning. It was the most successful planning meeting I’ve been to since joining our homeschool group. We have so many awesome classes planned. Hopefully we’ll fill in a few gaps within the next week and then the co-op committee will meet again at the end of the week to pull it all together. I LOVE co-op planning! I love being on the committee. I love seeing classes develop and I love seeing the finished product. I’m technically not teaching a class this semester since I’m due in May. I decided to just offer one or two hours of game time….something that my assistant can easily take over if I go into labor early.
|Some mid-week love. Gabriel made this card for me. iLu = I love you. He and Drake did a lot of independent drawing and writing this week. SO happy to see Gabriel willing to work on writing!|
Today is a slow day. We’re taking it easy. I ordered Apologia’s Who is God? book earlier this week and hope it will get here with today’s mail. I can’t wait to dig into that book! I’m excited about it! I think the boys will love it.
Nathan’s 14th birthday is tomorrow!!! We’ll celebrating tonight with a birthday dinner, just us and the grandparents who can make it. His party isn’t until next Saturday. We like to celebrate a birthweek anyway. It’s going to be a fun week!
We’ll probably be in eastern AR again next week. Looking forward to a couple museum stops, some serious work on history fair projects, and hopefully a more settled week.
