Weekly Wrap Up 2
Last week was a wonderful week. We had beautiful weather here in NC and I tell ya we really took advantage of it because I believe we completed school outside on the porch daily all week!
We played our new review games that came several times on the porch table.
And just enjoyed the crisp touch in the air, because that means FALL IS COMING! Did ya'll hear that? Fall is coming. Man oh Man this woman is one happy momma because that is my favorite time of year and I am in love already.
Schooling went wonderfully too.
The kids are really having a fun time so far with all the schooling.
Lexi and Zac haven't started their math yet because the first week we decided we had to change curriculum for them and it is suppose to arrive tomorrow! Then we will dig in and start with math.
We have been working hard already.
I am concerned with James Madison Critical Thinking Course being really hard for Kyle. I have to admit I actually have found it really hard myself. I am trying to decide if this is an item that will stay or have to go by the end of week 3.
Zachary has been doing really great with All About Reading Level 2. We spoke with a rep from All About Learning and they suggested not going forward right now with All About Spelling Level 2 because of his issues and our goal so that is what we did. So far he is on lesson 4 and doing really well with it. I have had to alter a few activities because he thought it was babyish but other than that we are good.
This weekend we had a mini vacation. We had respite care for our foster son. He has been in our home for 8 months and this was the first time we had a break to enjoy just our family time and I have to say it was wonderful time spent together.
Friday we went shopping and had a ton of fun just goofing off. We went to eat at Golden Corral which is the kids favorite place to go when we go out to eat which is not often.
Saturday we went Zip-lining! Yes you heard that right. The kids and hubby had a blast and I loved watching them. We went to have pizza and ice cream after.
It was so peaceful and such a blessing to have alone time with my family this weekend. I needed it greatly.
Our family is praying for God's will to happen in our life, we feel a pressure upon us and are seeking his guidance in what to do.
Kevin has 8 more weeks until his associates degree for Christian Theology is complete and I couldn't be happier for him. Never in a thousand years would I have picked or asked for this path for my family but some where along the way God changed my heart.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week last week and I will try not to be late again! LOL... But I did enjoy my weekend!
