me: portrait


It's been busy. Dr. for SG on Wednesday, shopping yesterday. This AM, the kids are cleaning the doe barn (so school will start LATE).....it's been a wild week.

I spent the morning printing out and collating Mystery of History, Quarter 2. The book still hasn't printed, but the publisher has made Q2 available - both the book and the workbook - for download to those of us who pre-ordered, so at least I CAN teach World History. I wish they'd let me download all of the workbook, because I'd prefer to print it out at once, but hey - at least I'm done thru lesson 42!

I have to say, I love Planbook! I love that I can go ahead and set the entire year up, then if something comes up I can bump the lessons. Or, if we get so into a subject we read ahead, I can pull back the lesson order. It's great - and I LOVE having everything set up ready to go. I also like that I can set up lessons per kid, if I want, and print out just their plan for the week/month - we tried that last year. Himself LOVED it, because he could do a week's worth of work in 1 or 2 days if he wanted to. Herself, however.....can't handle that much freedom. Oh, well - it was worth a try. :lol:

Not much else to report. The scarf is about 1/4 done, my leg is still black-and-blue, the goats - oh, yeah. The goats....we did lose the gray cashmere boy. :sigh: Everybody else is doing well, though - Frosty is starting to gain weight - which is good! - and the barn is being cleaned as I type. I need to stack firewood, but it hurts to walk much, so that'll have to wait. :sigh:

Ah, well - such is life. Shabbat Shalom!
