First off some highlights...
Grace and I used to do our work together first thing, but since I switched how we work with my older two, she does her lessons about 10;00 or 10:30. This seems to be working well for everyone. She doesn't mind waiting and I feel less pull from my older girls needing me. This week we practiced writing capital H for handwriting. We use a combination of Fundanoodle and Handwriting Without Tears along with some traditional manuscript paper.

I've figured out we are hopefully going to be finished with this guide just before Christmas. It is going to be bitter-sweet saying goodbye to this guides. We have loved it so much, but I also know how great Creation to Christ is going to be! At least I have the pleasure of knowing we'll hit Preparing 2 more times!
For me, this is what homeschooling is about...
...learning together. We may not all be learning the same thing, but we're learning together, all in the same place, all with the same goal. It isn't always pretty. Right now our school room is a disaster and I'm going to clean it up a bit after I'm done typing. But pretty or not, learning is happening and we're growing together as a family as well as academically.
How was your week? I'd love to hear about it!
