In my life this week..Ended the first quarter of the year and set some goals for the next quarter, even breaking some of them down into bite sized pieces. I really want to regain the focus in my life.
In our homeschool this week...We started reading The Hobbit. This choice came as a suggestion from Zippy's Dad, who is reading it as well, sometimes with her, so it is a great bonding time for them.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...We took a walk to Bigbys on Friday for a cup of Chai. I walk every day, but Zippy doesn't usually want to come. It was a nice walk, and we had a lovely conversation.
My favorite thing this week was...Zippy spelling. We use the All About Spelling books. This week she was struggling with a word, then she had the "aha" moment and spelled it out. I did the happy dance!
What's working/not working for us...I'm still not thrilled with out space, but it looks like our room will be staying the same for some time to come. What is working for us is our schedule. I gave it completely over to Zippy. I told her what she had to complete in a week and she has totally taken ownership of the doing. It is not perfect, but she looks at the schedule, then looks at the day, decides when she wants to do what, and when she sits down, she is ready to do the hard work.
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...When do you start planning next year? How many plan long term, like years?
