I don't have a homeschool recap for this week because we took the week off! I felt like Preston was getting a bit burnt out and then, of course, I worked Wed-Fri at the radio station's Share-A-Thon. I only worked about 4 hours each day, but I still didn't want to try to schedule school around that... just seemed like a great time to take a break from our lessons and enjoy the wonderful, Fall air! It's been cool! And downright cold a few times, even! Woooo hoooo!
Monday was Halloween.
|My 3 heroes - Snoopy, Mario & a Knight!|
Preston was Super Mario and Callen was a knight wielding a sword (watch out - 'cuz... um... he might take a bite out of you next?!). My in-laws took us to our church's trunk or treat for a little bit, then we went out to dinner to celebrate my Father-In-Law's birthday. Unfortunately, Michael missed it all because he had to work that evening.
The rest of the week flew by. The boys got to spend time with my mom while I worked on Wed and Thurs, and was with Michael's mom today as I worked. They enjoyed that, of course!
Praying that the week off helps Preston to be excited to start schooling again on Monday. We start doing a little more with the Bible in the next few weeks, so hopefully that helps him get motivated - he loves Bible stories! Our curriculum also seems to pick up speed as well... it's been kinda slow and too simple for him thus far. I also pray the downtime helped rest my patience. I was quite easily provoked the past few weeks, and I have got to rein that in. But first... let's just enjoy the weekend!
