Well, Christmas break is finally over and now things are slowly getting back into the swing of things! I had a dentist appointment Monday which made the week off to an interesting start - but all is well!
The kids have been busy doing their schoolwork and actually adjusted back to school pretty nicely. I've started Gator doing Time 4 Learning in addition to her other subjects. The plan is that we'll have access to Time 4 Art next month so - I'm hopeful its as awesome as people say! Peanut is doing well and our big focus right now is reading, math and writing. Achoo is also working hard -- we have him doing 100 Easy Lessons for reading and the BOB books - he's loving it. He's also doing Star Wars Math and Letters.
We did a few little trips out last week - aside from the dentist we also had swim lessons and gymnastics. Then, we went to this cool indoor play area that had a nature scavenger hunt! It even warmed up a little so we had a quick outside play, too! Ash got tired though so we left. I signed the big kids up to try Chinese class but Peanut had a meltdown - it was too hard. I thought it might be but it was free to try the first class, so we did! Achoo had a chance to learn how to play chess and now wants to go play weekly with his friends. Then....we had a play group on Friday for the littles and a board game day for the bigs! That was a lot of fun for everyone!! We actually managed to do all that AND get tons of school done.
This next week - we don't have much planned. I'm hoping to get a few things cleaned up around the house and maybe organize some school stuff. All of our closets and rooms need a little organization. I'm really game for doing it all BUT it'd be a lot easier if we could do it knowing where we are actually moving!!
I'll write more next week -- hop
