escapade: n. a piece of daring or reckless behaviour. How many times have you been labelled as mad or reckless because you homeschool?
Well I say its time to break down those notions - Bring on the Madness !
In my life this week...CHAOS. all four kids have been down with flu at some point or other this week and DD4's developing tonsillitis again :( I am craving a solid nights sleep.
In our homeschool this week...surprisingly we managed to mostly stay on track, although we did officially mark Fri up as a sick day and snuggled on the sofa watching documentaries (my sick day not theirs) so will have art, geometry and Spanish to squeeze in somewhere next week.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...not many ventures out this week but looking forward to next weeks craft workshop, baking afternoon and planting.
My favorite thing this week was...'Mummy can I cuddle you?' may these moments last forever
What's working/not working for us...Montessori is working very well for us although I think we could benefit from a more focused spelling programme and have been looking at a couple trying to decide which will work best.
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...Any suggestions for a good spelling programme?
A photo, video, link, or quote to share...My favourite quote this week is from Mandela 'We must use time wisely and forever realise that the time is always ripe to do good'
