Weekly Wrap Up: Humility and Half Schooling
Tuesday: Um...so another play day/sort of school day. Some teacher I am! The weather was beautiful and the kids played and played and played outside. I sure will miss this home. Here is a picture of our kitchen window... that window really should be open!
We also went to see our Educational Facilitator from our Charter School. She calms my list driven soul and encourages me to try on my more flexible self. I love her.
Thursday: Oh, what a day. I'm so, so broken hearted. The realtor came over today to give us a to-do list before we officially put the house on the market. As we walked through our home room by room, I started to walk down this sappy memory lane. Our realtor was thrilled with our home, which is a good thing, but only sort of. Sort of because I started wondering why it was we were leaving. Oh yeah. Then I remembered....We. Can't. Afford. It. Humility sucks.
Friday: We managed to almost finish the week of school. We received a package from our charter school filled with goodies I had ordered. They have this giant resource center with an online catalog. Every once in while when I'm feeling as though I have a handle on things (not often, if you really want to know!!), I'll peruse their catalog and order games, books, or even different curriculum just to see what's out there. When the package finally arrives it's like Christmas because I've invariably forgotten all of my clever choices. This time my choices were Sum Swamp (an addition/subtraction game), some Handwriting without Tears paper, and some short stories related to The Story of the World. Too much fun and entirely distracting! It's all good!!
