Weekly Report

I am trying to decide if it is worth blogging if I have NO PICTURES! I feel completely handicapped without a functioning camera!

I decided to pull The Chipmunk out of pre-school; the Christmas program was a good finale for her. I no longer wanted to pay $230 a month to have my child come home with stories about which child was going to bring his dad's g@# to school and k#@# them all. And since when was Ch33t@h G!rls fit preschool music? Anyway, it is definitely different homeschooling 2 kids! I guess most of you already know that ;)! I do have more time now that I am not watching the clock to pick Chipmunk up at 11:45. It was always so difficult to get Nutmeg back into the groove after lunch. We are trying to meet with two other families on Mon and Wed. They have children a year younger than Nutmeg and also children Chipmunk's age. It is a mix of girls and boys. We met last week and split the older kids from the Littles and everyone had a great time. Lizzie was doing FIAR with the Littles, and they had several cooking projects. This week, one family was sick and Lizzie wanted to work with her son on his own to deal with some distraction issues. I hope we are able to meet next week to continue with the American Revolution and the FIAR selection , "The Very Last First Time."

I am using the Rod and Staff preschool series for Chipmunk, and yesterday we started Explode the Code 1. She enjoys sitting at the table and having her own books, but she also enjoys constantly talking and interupting! Nutmeg worked steadily this week on Writing With Ease, ETC 7, FLL 3, Saxon 3, Geography, Latina Christiana and a Moon unit. She started back with swimming this week, but Chipmunk had an upset tummy.

Tomorrow we are going on a field trip. I am very excited, and I hope to have some form of camera so I can post some pictures!

I hope you all had great weeks!

Sounds like you made a great choice in bringing your PK er home! You'll love it! You are lucky to have some families to get together with, too. The companionship is so nice (for kids AND Mom!)

Wow! Sounds like you made the right decision to pull her out of preschool! Crazy!

You'll get the hang of schooling two in no time. There are definitely adjustments to be made, but you'll be a pro soon! :0)

I just have to tell you how exciting it was to read the exact same first sentences as I have in my youngest is home from preschool now too and boy, have things changed this month! It's all good though, and I hope you enjoy your new homeschool life. I'll be thinking of you... :)

Michele: It sounds like you had a good week. It will be an adjustment (as you well know) but I know that you will love having the little one home! :0)
I hope you have a great week this week.
