Since we go to the gym two morning a week, our MWF school schedule is heavier. It's about 1 PM as I am writing this. Michael is on the computer doing logic puzzles on Hooda math. Tera is finished with regular school work, but is working on a ACT math practice test in anticipation of her exam next Saturday. (You know I don't mean THE next Saturday, which is THIS Saturday, but the Saturday a week from now. That is NEXT Saturday...at least where I come from.) Daniel is re-doing missed math problems, because we are all about getting it right even if it takes a second time around. He has a few little things to finish up, before calling it a day, school-wise.
Michael and I have a play date this afternoon with a friend he met through chess tournaments. An only child and the youngest child--they have so much fun together. I'm privileged to be able to sit and talk with his mom, a very peaceful soul! It's always a relaxing afternoon.
I'm tired today. Sinus pressure is not nice. Allergy medicine hangover is real. That is all on that subject.
I've been de-cluttering not only my house, but my E-MAIL! I delete so many emails without reading them from companies I've signed up for over the years. Now, I'm unsubscribing to almost everything and then deleting. I also changed some of my facebook settings. It's so nice to check my email and not almost have a panic attack, because there are 30+ emails overnight or in a couple of hours some days. Now, it's like 6. Boundaries are good!
I took the trash out and had a nice talk with my neighbor while I was out there.
Who knew I could teach biology and make it semi-interesting for the kids? I am using Guest Hollow's Biology Curriculum as our main curriculum and adding in fun hands-on activities as well.
John Denver and James Taylor are on our playlist this afternoon.
A fend for yourself leftover dinner and a relaxing evening is on the menu.
