Group started this week however I have fought some stomach issues all week so we didn't go. I am so sorry and feel horrible that we didn't go the first day however I honestly haven't felt like it. 
Also Wednesday our Library offers some classes for our homeschoolers, that started back on Wednesday so we visited the library to do some fun activities and really enjoyed our time there.



  1. We are using Geography A-Z as well. We just add them to our picture dictionaries as we come across them in literature. So are you just picking topics for science and History each semester? Or using a list?

  2. Sounds like a fun week. Can I send my kids to your house next week? LOL JK. We finished wk #8 and on to our next 4 wks after a well needed week off. Blessings.

  3. It sounds like you got so much done this week! Hope you are feeling better next week and can make it to group.
