This week was another one of those wild weeks we just roll with things. It helped that Moose was on break week this week.
On Monday, Peanut and Moose had some dental work done which went off without a hitch. I was really impressed with how well they tolerated everything. We did as much school as we could in the morning, then left the afternoon for the dentist and hanging out afterwards.
Tuesday I went to the doctor for a follow-up (which I talked about here). Easier to work around than the dentist.
And this morning I had bloodwork done which almost required a dogsled to get to thanks to the amount of snow we’ve received this week.
Peanut is continuing to ride her improved spelling streak; whipping through words and lessons much faster now. Her handwriting also had another leap and it’s starting to take on the form of an older kid.
Our new schedule is much happier, although I think I need to throw in an extra reading session for a couple books. But other than that minor adjustment, things are looking much better. If you’re curious about the new schedule, it looks like this:
Monday: Copywork, US History, Math, Poetry, 30min break, Biography, Latin, 30 min break, Spelling, Religion
Tuesday: Copywork, Church history, Math, Poetry, 30min break, Mythology, Latin, 30 min break, Spelling, Religion
Wednesday: Copywork, Saints, Math, Poetry, 30min break, Literature, Latin, 30 min break, Spelling, Religion
Thursday: Copywork, US History, Math, Poetry, 30min break, Geography, Latin, 30 min break, Spelling, Religion
Friday: Copywork, Saints, Math, Poetry, 30min break, Science, Spelling, 30 min break, Catechism
Based on last term and this term, her favorite books tend to be biographies. She’s had a lot to say about Abigail Adams, and the social norms at the time regarding the education of women and their role in society.
I’ve decided we’re going to do a little bit of schoolwork today, mainly finishing up a couple things and then calling it quits for a little while for Christmas/New Year’s. I’m not sure if we’ll take a solid week or so off or just dabble here and there; but it will be good to get outside and sled and enjoy the copious amount of snow that has falling.
Blessed remainder of Advent and merry Christmas!
