Our weekly accomplishments...Week 7
What a busy...busy....busy week! I felt like I was passing myself where ever I went. I actually felt bad for our kids as they were drug from place to place or forced to wait forever somewhere. The hardest thing though for me was trying to fit school in. That was a true challenge.
I had Lydia testing to see whether she was on grade level. We were using a sample Test booklet, because I already had her assessed by a teacher. This was just for me. She did really well. And shockingly, her strongest subject was her weakest one last week. Go figure.
Caty and I read about Forests and also learned more about the Letter A. I officially have started her on Easy Peasy (All in One Homeschool)....Getting Ready 1. We read Pete the Cat constantly last week. She loves Pete, and goes around singing him. After Storytime on Thursday she went around singing the songs. That is a big deal for her. I love it!! She is definitely remembering what she is learning. We go with the flow the best we can with her. She also really liked reading the Gruffalo this week to go along with our forest unit.
Joey started his first week of Easy Peasy (All in One Homeschool). It was a rough week because of his 4H judging and all the running mom had to do. He is definitely not a lover of poetry. So getting hit with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow has not been a favorite for him, but he seems to be doing well with this program. I am so proud that he kept up his Bible study all week!!! Since he did that and Dad was relieved from work this afternoon, he got a special treat of going to see a movie with Dad.
Brayden eeked by in his existence as far as schoolwork. In the past week, we have managed to get him out to ride his bike twice!!! Yeah!!! He felt it where it hurt though when we took away his video game until he finished all his work. I adjusted him to a more worksheet style approach this week. He seems to thrive on worksheets, so that is what I will have in his workbox.
Joey had his 4H judging. I am so happy that he made it to his first one, because the 2nd day he was not feeling well. So he has a make up judging this Thursday with his advisor. He worked hard on his First Aid project too, so I was a little more upset than he was that he missed judging.

Hope everyone had a great week last week, and I look forward to reading about everyone's weeks.
