In 2 weeks, we've had tree cracking ice-storms, a blizzard and now 70+ degrees. Yesterday was glorious- warm, sunny and bare-foot worthy. A bit surreal as there was still snow on the ground, but we'll take it after the 3rd snowiest April on record.
*2*A long week with another physical challenge that changed my plans. I'm on "off your feet" status for another week or two and throwing back the aspirin to ward off the pain, nausea and headaches. It's finally nice out and I'm on chair rest (sniffle, sniff, sniffity). I would like some cheese (sharp) with my whine (red and dry).
*3*Cub finished Grid Perplexors D, Apologia's General Science and Famous Men of the Middle Ages. We've started Famous Men of Modern Times and Flower has listened to almost the entire Story of the World 1-4 in the past 2 months She also did an American History unit in co-op. She loves history. Which I love. But, seriously, try reading a chapter of history outloud to these yokels. We stop every 3rd sentence to add in related and interesting fun facts to know and tell.
Latina Christina is cruising along, they are all doing RS German and we've thrown Spanish into the mix. It's been fun, really. Adventus, Math, grammar, science and all of the rest of the regulars.
Co-op ended yesterday with the traditional concert. We love co-op but are glad it's over for the spring.
*5*Dr.Dh has been a trim cutting, affixing fool, but you'll have to come back and see pictures of it cause it deserves a post to itself. It is very precise work and he is doing the work of a craftsman. Lucky me to be married to someone smart and exceptionally handy with tools. And mostly funny (he's a punner, what can I say?) . He made such a GREAT joke this week I was still laughing the next day.
*7*sign up here)? It is an entire issue dedicated to an apologetic for grammar study; really fantastic. If you don't see the need for formal grammar study, this issue will convince you of the worth of it.
How was your week ?
