Homeschooling and Life: Feb. 11-17, 2013

This past week was hectic, yet it was good. Our schooling went very well, and so far Doodles and I are very pleased with our transition into Oak Meadow. The crafts and projects have breathed new life into her schooling. I am hoping that it stays that way. Bug is still having an absolute blast with his Narnia unit study, and I have to say that it's one of my top curriculum choices...ever!!! We celebrated Valentine's Day with our homeschool co-op group, which was fun. Baby Girl is still doing better, but she does have her bad moments, meltdowns, and sleep (or lack thereof) issues. I have started her on a gluten free diet in hopes that it will help-of course this is in addition to her medication...and lots of prayer! And...we gained a new family member this week! It's of the furry sort. She is adorable, and you can see her pics below, along with the other hightlights of the week:
