Well, I have not been posting about much except Drawing with Children and Nature blogs. I wanted to give you a peep into my life to see what we have been up to.
I asked Dan to pick up Les Miserables for me at the used bookstore, since I finally finished David Copperfield. It took me 6 weeks to plow through those 853 pages, so I thought I would try something new.
This is what he brought home...
However, NO ONE TOLD ME IT WAS 2.75 INCHES THICK.
Then, there is this....
That would be TWENTY PAGES I have printed off from The Handbook of Nature Study. Barb must LOVE Spring. She has made so many cool resources, many of them free, and I am wading through scheduling them. I am trying to be really diligent to do the art and composer study. I usually let that one slide.
I also was sick of having to find a new Mary Kay consultant all the time, so here ya go, I am now a consultant,
There is a free Virtual Makeover. Also, free shipping and gift with at least a $40 purchase. I am assuming much of my business will be online, so I am offering some incentives!
I have also been lesson planning for next year and the summer. We basically school year round, where we do something a little different in the summer. Our summer this year will be 6 weeks long and we will start school the third week in July, Lord willing. The oldest daughter has decided she wants to do Shakespeare in the Summer. I made that up, so don't google it. We are using the Ambleside list for Shakespeare so we will spend 2 weeks per the three Shakespeare works for 2011. I am knee deep in Henrry V now. I found the best book, No Fear Shakespeare! It has his and modern translation side-by-side. I also have on order Brightest Heaven of Invention, in order to help me figure this out. I have not taught Shakespeare beyond the grammar level. Keep tuned in for whatever comes of Shakespeare in the Summer.
The last do-dad I have decided is to start a 4-H club in the fall. We are going to be "general" and have all ages kids from 4th grade and up. It is going to be family integrated so all the other siblings can come. I really want my kids to get practice on Public Speaking, Demonstrations, Fair Exhibits, etc. This is a little more like "school" than we have done in the past, and I think they will grow alot. I will keep you updated on what this looks like too!
What have you been doing in March? Is yours running away with you? Are you interested in Shakespeare in the Summer? What about a blog hop for it?
