What we are up to this week.....

It is one of those busy weeks.  It got busier this morning, when a surprise Doctor appointment for my mom was added.  So I lost another half day of school.  I had to rework our lesson plans.

Currently this week, on Monday the boys have a doctor appointment for med checks.  Lydia has violin and Joey has his first cheerleading practice.  We get to stay home Tuesday and Wednesday.  Well Lydia has gymnastics Tuesday evening.  On Thursday Lydia has Zoo Class and Girl Scouts.  Friday is Co-op day and the girls Ballet recital.

The kids are loving Brain Pop soooo much that I broke down and bought their family subscription for them to use.  I am including this in our school several times each week for each kiddo.
