So in the last few months we have had many changes. Nick finally came home from Afghanistan. We are so excited about this. It took a lot off my mind. I could relax now. I could breathe a little more now. Samantha can stop her worrying. She was thrilled to get the letters from Nick every once in a while. She would get this happy look on her face. She hid them all in her room.
Samantha has a new niece who is absolutely adorable. We even got to spend some time with her. Samantha turned 7 and willingly postponed her celebration to just have her brother here for it.
We have had a few breaks from school work along the way. Due to our trip down south and Mike and his family 2 week visit to our house. We are back on track now. There are a few things we will finish early still like Spelling will be done about 3 weeks before the rest of out work will be. History will be done in 2 weeks depends on how long I draw the last 2 chapters out. Phonics seat work will be done about a month before the rest of our work. Math and Reading will be done right on time. Did I forget anything?
I am trying to slow that fast forward life down some. We need the break. We need the time to just be. I succeed in small amounts.
To make school work fun and interesting we do these little side trips in learning. We along with a few friends did a 5 day lesson on Autumn and Winter. Then I have done many fun little lessons on penguins, leprechauns, little house on the prairie, and so much more....
