Today is our last day of Ships and Floating and we are hoping to start Bread, Grain and Yeast next week (KONOS Unit Studies). I’ll be gearing up for some fun in the kitchen with the kids. This time, I have a buddy or two who are going to “email” co-op with me and even a little in person. We are behind on our planned units for the year, so we gathered some support (accountability) and are going to cruise through the next six weeks and finish school at the end of June. I have been having fun planning out the next four units and tweaking my next-year’s schedule. I enjoy the “planning” part of the coming school year. Now if I could only make myself sit and finish grading and getting report cards done. It is hard when it is sunny and 72 degrees outside!!! Maybe I’ll bum some money from my mom and take the kids on a field trip tomorrow. It seems sinful to waste time indoors in this weather. I feel pity on them when they work at the table to finish their book-work and I catch them glancing out the windows. Poor things! A few of my friends quit school in March and take their summer break during gardening season (Spring)… so that they can make the best use of the loveliest weather of the year. They start their school back up in mid-July to make it possible to get it all done.
Here’s the schedule if we aren’t forced to move in the middle of it:
Week 1: May 21-26 (Bread and Grain)
Week 2: May 28-June 2 (Bread and Grain)
Week 3: June 4-9 (Illusion/Deception)
Week 4: June 11-16 (Flight/Airplanes)
Week 5: June 18-23 (Flight/Airplanes)
Week 6: June 25-30 (Plants & Gardening)…. Carried over into the first weeks of July without any other curriculum – just for fun.
There’s still no word on a transfer for my husband, so we don’t know when or where we will be in Texas… but we are trusting that God is working all the details out.
Now you know what I’m up to. I probably will skip out tomorrow unless I just can’t stay away. I’m finally going to face down that stack of papers needing to be graded! Hope you have a great weekend. I’ll see you in here Monday with updates from our first day of “Bread, Grain & Yeast”.
