|"Treat of the Week"|
Oak Meadow Preschool package.
Homeschooling moms need...and deserve...breaks! Hubby and I had a date night (kiddos stayed with grandparents) & I bought these thing for myself. I am injecting more FUN into my life, and I'm a better wife & mom because of it.

We had another good week. The children were a bit silly at times (fall fever?), but we managed to stay on task-most of the time-and complete our work. Here's a peek into our week:

We had a good week, for the most part. We started co-op this week, and the kiddos are really enjoying it. We go every Monday. I had to make one adjustment, though, because Apologia Physical Science proved to be WAY over Doodles' head. As a new sixth grader, the material was just too difficult for her. It is geared toward 8th graders, so we will be going back to it in a few years. Meanwhile, though, I am putting together my own science program for her, which is exciting for both of us. Also, I must add that I am totally in love with our main programs this year. Sonlight Core F is just awesome (Doodles), as is Further Up and Further In (Bug.) I have had incredible discussions with each of them. I am also learning so much myself! Oak Meadow Preschool (Baby Girl) is such a gentle and beautiful program. We are truly thrilled this year! Here is a glimpse into our week:
