Really it wasn't that bad. It can just take some time to get used to a new routine. Children that go to public school are used to getting up and heading out the door early in the morning every day. My children have never experienced that, so it's a bit of a change. But we did get up and out the door on time every day this week.
We have to leave by 7:25 am. All of our breakfasts this week were foods that could be taken on the go ( by Friday the girls were eating dry cereal in ziplock bags, but it worked.) We drop Nick off around 7:50 and have to pick him up by 9:35. It takes around 20 minutes for us to get to town, so going home isn't an option. I hope to spend some time each day at the park, but this week it rained every day but one! Monday-Thursday we went to church so I could work on things for Kid's Club. Friday we went grocery shopping. Wednesday we did get to go to the park for a little while.
After we pick Nick up, we head for the house and feed the various animals. Our school day started around 10:25. We did not do a full schedule of school work. Some subjects we will add in the next few weeks.
First day of school photos
Bible: We started reading the book of Luke and read through the birth of Christ.
Geography: We did week 1 of unit 1 of Let's Go Geography. We learned about the Northeast part of the United States.
History: We completed lesson one of America's Story on Native Americans.
Science: We are working on A Journey Through Learning lapbook on inventors and studied several inventors this week including: The Wright Brothers, John Deere, Louis Braille, Marconi, Benjamin Franklin, Leonardo da Vinci.
Math: Christian, Lily, and Anthony all started their new Math Lessons for a Living Education books this week and completed 4 lessons.
Reading/Spelling: Emmie completed lessons 5,6, and 7 in AAR Level 1. Lily completed lessons 29 and 30 in AAR Level 3. Anthony and Christian completed Step 10 in AAS Level 4.
8th Grade - Alex completed all of his assignments in his AOP Monarch. The program schedules out his assignments and grades them for him. It is hard to give a wrap up of he has done when I haven't been in on the lessons!
10th Grade- I usually grade all of Nick's work on Sunday night. This is where I confess I completely forgot! I know he completed 4 lessons in Algebra 2, and his week 1 assignments in history, literature, Bible, and health, but I have no idea what the topics were. I will have to grade his work tomorrow evening!
We had no outside afternoon activities this week. For that I was very thankful!
Chelsea's class started this week so we did get to babysit Liam one afternoon. He was a very good boy!
I hope you had a great week!
