I can't blame her.
Not at all... I confessed, in return, how I LOVE love love the start of the school year but, as the days wear on, I just sort of want to be done with the whole thing! I love teaching. I love spending my days with my kids (now ONE 'kid'). But sometimes even a mom just wants to do anything but educational stuff! So.... even after a Sunday afternoon hanging out at Michael's all chill like this:
After frivolities we headed to the grocery store where I put her in charge of the list and budget we had discussed before we headed out. Thankfully she likes math so she found this fun, even if the grocery budget couldn't buy her new shoes!!
After our Monday excursions and my projected plans to make up the difference in the coming weeks, I did keep my foot down on finishing the rest of our week strong. Instead of taking our usual Wednesday off this week we pushed through and took Friday off instead... which she spent trying a new P.E./potential hobby..
Halfway through the week we enjoyed a beautiful dusting of snow...
At this point in the week we also made the judgment call to pause Astronomy and French videos/bookwork until January. This will give her time to focus on finishing her one-semester course of Consumer Math so her daily schedule isn't as overwhelming. Even though we won't be doing the videos and book work, she will keep at her self-paced French studies with Duolingo and Mango.
All-in-all, I am pleased with how our week turned out, even if it almost wasn't a school week! I hope the drive through till this coming Friday is fruitful knowing our break is almost here!!
