This week off in review

Our 3rd grade curriculum arrived, hence the post below about 3rd grade Chemistry but would you believe I've been too busy to really get a good look at everything???

Actually, I have. I've been trying to coordinate the book selling that I've been doing for 2 weeks, purging items in our house, preparing for a lecture I'm giving tomorrow and dealing with daily life with a 5 month old pup, a 3 year old boy and 7 year old girl. Dh has been dealing with his own stresses with his college work and the church.

I am ready for the lecture, scared out of my mind but ready. When I get home, I'll have to finish my first article for Heart of the Matter's classical column, Trivium Tid-Bits, which conveniently will be the same topic that I'm doing the lecture on- how to use classical education elements in any homeschool for free.

Wouldn't you know it? I spilled coffee on my keyboard which now does a lot of bbbbbbbbbbbb's. Lol. Thank goodness I have a laptop to use but it's not the same, all my passwords and shortcuts are on MY computer. Sigh. Funny thing, I was just looking for my ink pen about 10 minutes ago and I couldn't find it. There's always a panic when I misplace my writing tools b/c Danny is quick at finding opportunities to make a mess. Lo and behold, it's in my hair. Thank goodness.

I have a lot of stuff to do this weekend, I haven't even planned out next week's lessons! I'm reserving that for Sunday afternoon and night. I have completely failed this week to accomplish what I should have outside of the extracurricular activities (selling books, preparing lecture, writing article). I have done laundry and fed my family every night though.

The sad thing is I need to prioritize so the 3rd grade curriculum that came in two days ago will have to wait just a little longer before I can truly devote some TLC to it. I can say that I'm very satisified with what I've chosen for 3rd grade. I'll post about it later after it has received some TLC from me. :)

We have 3rd grade curriculum arriving here in the next week or so, too. Like you, I'm eager to get my hands on it. :)

I wanted to tell you good luck on your lecture. I *know* you'll do a truly amazing job! :) Let us know how it goes and I'll look forward to reading the article at Heart of the Matter.

As for next year - I have started making my list of what I want but I am *far* from being ready to order anything. Sigh.

Enjoy your weekend!

Good luck with your lecture, I'm sure it will be great!! Looking forward to seeing the article in Heart of the Matter as well :)

I hear you with the dog & 3 yr. old! Our pup just turned 3 months. It's going to be a loooong wait until she's an adult!
