Time to Get Started!

Holy Canoli- can life get busier? Well, it did for us this week as we started school, co-op, and added a couple of other jobs to our regularly scheduled programming. Even with that we did get some school work done.

Started off the week with Marine Biology on -line, you'll get to hear all about it because there is a review coming up on it and its' gonna be great! - that, plus all of the usual suspects. Flower is begging for a new 5 x 7 card. Gotta get it made before Monday!

Co-op started this week. We are in a new facility- an old Catholic school no longer in use- and I love it! Open, clean, great windows and an awesome gym! I'm teaching Mapping the World with Art. Who knew it would turn into a spelling class, too!

Did you see this week's Carnival of Homeschooling? Check it out!
I also guest blogged over at Ben and Me: Frugal Family, Waiting and Watching as God Provides.
Also, the latest reviews:
People Keys Student Binder
Time 4 Learning
Knowledge Quest's A Child's Geography Vol III
I did a number on my poor finger helping a friend can beets (that's love, people. I don't even like beets!) that required a trip to the doc, rendering me almost incapable of doing dishes, sans a very large sink. Who knew my left pointer finger was such an integral part of my life? Having it swaddled makes it difficult to do a lot of things, like type with any sort of effectiveness!

A "Free Apples for the picking" sign garnered us several pounds of gorgeous Pippin like apples- gluten free apple pie is gonna happen! Recipes anyone?

The apples, in addition to a Bountiful Baskets delivery and the generosity of my friend with the beets and our counters and fridge are full up of fresh fruits and veggies. 24# of cauliflower for around $14. And yes, we'll eat it all before it goes bad!
Watched Ben Hur with the kids last night. Still one of the greats. Flower doesn't remember watching it before and it was so fun to see it with fresh eyes.
Two of the best movie lines in existence:
"You have one job on this ship. Row well and live!"
"It seems that in God's fervor to save you, he has also saved the Roman fleet!"

Gmar Chatimah Tova!
 (May you be inscribed (in the Book of Life) for Good!)
Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is one of two Jewish High Holy Days. The purpose of Yom Kippur is to bring about reconciliation between people and between individuals and God. According to Jewish tradition, it is also the day when God decides the fate of each human being
