Our Homeschooling Week Ending October 11

This past week was our fall break, and let me tell you, we enjoyed it.    Once I got the 1st quarter grades recorded, that was it for school!  We stayed up late and slept even later.  The kids and I watched movies, played games, and spent a good deal of time outside.  I never took so many naps in my adult life as I took this week.  I should have been working on a few things, but resting and relaxing is what a break is supposed to be about, and I took full advantage of that.

However, we did finish the new mural on the chalkboard wall!  This was the first time trying silhouettes.  I think I like drawing/coloring by erasing! 1379957_519225191492781_1167609427_nWith the week off now over, I hope the kids are ready to get back to our regular schedule for they may need to motivate me.  I so enjoyed my break from lesson planning and teaching.

I hope you had a terrific week and that you’re enjoying the weekend.

      Thanks Dawn. My J thought we should have a scare crow like we did last fall. We didn’t intend to have it so scary, it’s just how it turned out. A friend said that it would scare her if she happened to be walking into the kitchen for a late night drink of water w/o turning on the light. So instead of “scarecrow”, we have renamed it after our friend. It’s now a “scaredebbie”!

    Love your chalkboard wall. I think fall is meant for napping and staying up late and sleeping in late. Don’t you?
    I found you at Homeschool Mother’s Journal.
    I would like to invite you to join my Saturday link up as well. It’s called, “This Week…” It is a homeschool week in review link up.
    I would love for you to join in.

      Rest and relax – yeah, but recharge – not so much. I totally ran out of steam around 4:00 this afternoon and had to lay down before finishing cooking supper!
