So our week,
Started a new schedule with my lad, making every day as much the same as I could to forestall those endless questions of "what do I have to do today mom?"
If I make our days the same, it has a calming affect on my lad... AS MUCH AS I HATE IT. I like having things different, but I need to do what's better for my lad right?
Highlights of my week.
WhiskerSong had five babies born.
I did a co-op class this week on Earthquakes.
Earthquakes are rather cool, and I never knew before this class that they were at different levels, or that they could measure S and N waves.
Canadian Homeschoolers is doing a link up this month on doing Conference Chats. I did a post on Animals Help Us Learn.
Homeschool Copywork has been a success in our household. I wrote up my review of it.
It's been a surprise to me how much my lad is enjoying this copywork program.
He gets to write on a topic he's interested in and colour pictures that intrigue him.
Come to the Saviour Now was my hymn of the week. Sometimes I wonder if anyone reads my posts and then I get delighted when someone tells me how they add to their week. :)
Let's think, oh.. I wrote a blog post for Karen (it will be out sometime this month). I also got some seeds planted outside, we're going to have a few days of quite warm weather so figured getting them gets them a good start. I'll need to put up frost protection cloth for them though.
I continue to make head way with my rat problem (which personally I am delighted by). I've only seen one little one yet that needs to leave the backyard....I really don't need a wild rat sleeping with my guinea pigs.
OH!!! I went biking today. You have NO IDEA... I was able to get in some exercise and MY FEET DIDN'T HURT. I was so happy about this, able to get out, enjoy the weather without thinking man, I just want to go home because my feet hurt. I just wanted to keep going. :) I'm going to go biking again!!!!! :)
