This week despite some challenges we did get some school done. April and May have traditionally been tough months for us as far as schooling goes. We always seem to wind down “unvoluntarialy”. Thus we have decided to school all year around with a lighter schedule in the summer.

We have changed our morning schedule and I really need to get up earlier to make it work well. The first thing we do are ‘Biblical Studies’ which includes catechism, proverb study and reading either a Missionary book or Leading Your Little Ones to Christ. Then we do chores and spend 15 minutes — 1 hour in the garden. This has made us less productive in school because our transitions are taking too long and an hour was too long we were all to tired.

On Monday morning I had a root canal. At the end of the root canal the dentist informed me he needed to re-do it because he needed to go 2cm’s deeper. Then we had our fire inspection and a visit from ECI. After this we spent over an hour in the garden and we were all to tired to do much of anything. So we did not do school on Monday.
On Tuesday we were suppose to go to speech we did a little math in the morning and then tried to head to speech and the Suburban broke down at Lowe’s. Wayne dianosised it went to Autozone and fixed it. But don’t worry there was a Chik-fil-a & What-a-burger in the parking lot…lols. Wayne got it fixed by replacing a fuel filter and I drove to the Doctor’s office and when I backed up it stopped running. I waited a few minutes and it started running again. Then on the way from my friend Taryn’s house the car broke down again on the way to get Wayne. We got it Autozone and then Wayne bought some kind of sensor and fixed it again and not its running great!

On Wednesday we have piano lessons and we did a pretty full day of school. Then McDaddy got home and he had a terrible toothache, we even missed our small group.
Then on Thursday we had a pretty full day of school too and then we did American Heritage Girls.

On Friday we only did a bit of school as we prepared for some friends from church to help us fix our driveway, and do some work around our house. We are dreadfully behind since the twins got here.
So, hopefully next week I’ll really be able to concentrate on moving the kids forward in their school work and we will get out of the doldrums!
