Well. We had a fabulous week and a write-off week and this week is still up in the air. So far, I am frustrated. I am tired. I am thinking it may be time to call Christmas vacation. We will finish this week and see. I am afraid that if I take too much time, then it will take ages to get back in the groove. Maybe we can just do a bunch of fun, Christmassy activities. Elaborate on our advent studies... do some hands-on learning and more field trips.
This past week, we went to the science centre twice and spent tons of time in the gallery upstairs with all the hands-on demos. Lots of physics experiments to try. A loves the discovery gallery and the water tables. She could spend hours in there, and I love that the mess is not in my house.
For advent, I am using this page from the teachingmom.com site. Lots of links for extensions, though some were dead. It is a terrific resource.
From Pioneer Woman I found SpellingCity.com which I am going to try with R, spelling and R are not friends, I am hoping computer time might help.

Trying to keep my head above water here, praying to find my joy and patience.
