Week 13? 14? 15? I have no idea. I've thrown my IG out the window. All the planning was in vain. Monk is in module 6 of his Apologia General Science, but come on, plaster of paris? No, I don't have that laying around the house. I told him to skip that experiment. Limestone? Nope, I don't have that either. Skip that one, too. The kids are doubling up on their reading efforts this week so they can take a couple of days off next week. I think we're ok there. I've been reading Moccasin Trail aloud to them with MANY interruptions... except for when we read at 9:30 pm, but I'd really rather be taking my bath then. We're on schedule with math, naturally since there isn't a schedule. Fortunately our big shipment of audio books arrived today and after we get through Moccassin Trail we'll be set until the last couple of weeks of the year.
ARTistic Pursuits has gone by the wayside. The kids have been very busy with their music. They're preparing to play Away in a Manger together (Monk and Twinkle Toes on piano and Measle on the violin) next month so they've been doing a lot of practicing lately. Grammar Ace has gone from being something we did together to individual work. The kids are probably ahead by now in Wordly Wise, but I haven't checked. I can't imagine what's been distracting me!
I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
