Weekly Review




I did something different this week.  I wrote out all the work Kiddo had to do for the week.  I told him he could do the work in any order he wants to but it all has to finished before the weekend.  When he saw the list, you would have thought I took away all his Legos.  After a more than small amount of grumbling he got into it.  He started marking through the list as he finished.  It was fun to watch him pick his favorite things to do and leave the others.  Let’s just say he will be doing a good deal of handwriting and zoology on Friday.

I also made a list of what I want to have finished by May 10th.  The reason for May 10th, I made a deal with Kiddo, if we finish all of our work by then I will get him the new LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Wii game.  Talk about incentive or bribery.  I am ready for a break.  We will take May off for a small break and get back started in June with new curriculum. 

Speaking of new curriculum, my order came today from  It is so much fun getting in new books.  Kiddo promptly took off with the Anatomy book and started reading.  I looked through the Latin book and wondered if I could hire someone to teach it.  I will order the last of the curriculum we need in a week of so.  Then I can start reading the books and planning our schedule.
