Back to Work

We have had a lot going on the past couple of weeks and have half done school. Today we are back to a full work load.  Between all 3 of us being sick, a trip and getting ready for Dad to go to Japan for weeks,  then having his trip canceled we have been busy and tired.  He was to leave the day the earthquake hit in Japan, I am so thankful he was not already there.  We have heard from all of his coworkers, they are safe and working on getting home. 
Today we had a full day of school with handwriting, botany, math, drawing class, history and grammar.  We also learned about Pi and made a peanut butter pie with oreo crust for Pi day.
We are getting to the end of some of his school books and that means curriculum time.  I have begun working on our list for next year and will be making a post later this week.  Since we have switched math programs and finished astronomy it is time to make plans for our next year.  We are a just a few lessons from being finished with Story of the World.  I can ‘t believe it is time for new curriculum again.  I always get nervous and excited when it is time to pick put new books.  Somewhere between the fun of new school supplies and ahhh!  I am responsible for the education of my child.  You can ask my husband I read, research, read reviews, question and question some more every time I get ready to buy schools books.  And he always tells me the same thing, “If it doesn’t work, what is the worst that will happen? You will have to buy new books, big deal”.  I only married him because he is so smartSmile

Have a great week!



  1. Looks yummo Heather! So glad your hubby was home during the earthquake!

  2. One thing that still amazes me is that we actually complete things! When my girls were in school so much came home unfinished. It was unheard of to complete a text book, let alone a whole curriculum! We are 3/4 of the way through SOTW book 1 and I feel such a sense of accomplishment.

  3. Very cool about your Pi pie!! And what timing on your husband's trip. So glad he wasn't in Japan & his coworkers are ok. Here from HHH.
