weekly highlights

I am so sick of winter already, and it barely started. This week Sassy decided to get sick again. Bronchitis, infected tonsils and right ear. And it make it even better, she had to sleep on one couch for two nights, while I slept on the other. By sleep, I mean she coughed til about 2, then woke at 6ish. We never got any sleep. So needless to say, we aren't doing any school. Little man is doing math only. I think I'm gonna take the month off. I don't wanna start Europe for two weeks then a two week break. Pointless. So we are gonna do math and reading and crafts and baking. Fun stuff. I hate this.

My goodness, you have had some rough times! I've heard that many homeschoolers take the whole month of December off and I thought about doing that but I want the summer off. How do you accomplish both and manage to complete the curriculum?

I have hesitations about starting Europe also. We are scheduled to start next week and I'm wondering if we should just hold off until January. Then I could focus on just math and language arts for the next two weeks. And, of course, all the fun Christmas stuff.

Any thoughts?

Girl, I'm so sorry to hear about all the sicknesses. Hope this clears up soon... For the past 3 yrs, we took Dec off and managed to finish before or around the same time as the public schools. So, I'm sure you're perfectly fine to take the month off. I'm trying to do more this year... It snowed today, so we were off. ;)

I'm with you. I am sick of cold season and it's just begun. Someone is always sick. AND now it's snowing.
