SO here is my WHAT I DID THIS WEEK post: go see what everyone else did at Weird Unsocialized Home Schoolers...
Which is good since I actually DID stuff! YEAH!
We accomplished Bible, math, First Language Lessons, Writing with Ease, Handwriting and Kate worked on her writing assignment. Our school day got cut short because I lazed around with Daddy who was off work, we ran some errands and had to pick up the truck and deliver the jeep back to the IN LAWS-- (thanks for letting us borrow the jeep IN LAWS!!!) But we did still get a lot done!
We also got all the Fall stuff put away and the Christmas stuff was ALL in my living room... waiting! The tree was UP but undecorated, so that got put on the agenda for Tuesday..
We also started our Advent wreath (lighting the first candle) on Sat and read our first Christmas story of the season!
My week went slightly downhill from there but we did accomplish some school and decorating and house upkeep for the most part.
Emily got to ring the bell on Tuesday at her class... she did a handstand/ carwheel dismount off the high beam... WHOO HOO! Her cartwheels need a LOT of work but because this turns into a dismount off the side of the beam she is able to do it nicely! She was so excited to ring the bell!
Kate loved on her hamsters alot!
Wednesday--- Kate had volleyball which mom took her to, so I stayed home and I finished up the laundry and Matt and Emily worked on Math. I also got a fair amount of spelling done with them..

We spent all of Wed evening, actually into Thursday morning helping get Brett and Amy's office space ready for a fire inspection and the Grand Opening on Saturday! We were exhausted!

We took daddy to work, left for Volleyball and went straight to my hair appointment in Pasadena afterwards... from there we did a Walmart trip and went to pick up daddy.. When we got home it wsa 6:00, I had not been home ALL day! YUCKO... but my hair looks good! So needless to say NO school today!
But got up and going before 10:00.
The kids got Bible, spellling, Writing with Ease, First Language lessons and handwriting done.
END. OF. ROPE.
If she could not or had a learning disability I would be totally cool... but she can! ARRRRGGGG.
We broke for lunch and watched two episodes of PUNKY BREWSTER... it had a lot of references to sexual things in it, which I DO not remember.... we will keep watching and if it doesnt get better we will stop, the kids are enjoying it and probably dont get the references anyway. It is like dead pan humor.
After lunch and Punky, we worked on math, states stuff and made appetizers for Kates volleyball party tonight. We also finished putting out the Christmas decor and put all the boxes away. So finally the house looks Christmassy!
We had a few conversations about chores which are not getting done very nicely... I am NOT finding a system and I dont know what to do.. I am really struggling with this. So I am up for suggestions...
Anyhoo that was our week in a nutshell..
Did I say my hair looked good??
