This is our wind-down week. I'll
finish the last two chapters of the older girls' Beyond FIAR
book. I'm not going to start a FIAR book with my 6 yo this
week. We're going to just do our math, handwriting, phonics,
grammar, spelling, lots of reading, etc. this week. We may do
some fun geography stuff and some extra nature study. We're not going
to start any big projects or any new studies since we don't know when
the baby will arrive. We're 6 days from my due date, so we're
Extra focus will be made to keep the house "company ready" this week.
We'll all be working harder to keep things nice and orderly and stay
ahead of our chores.
After the baby comes, we'll be taking a school break. I know
learning will continue via games and reading and life, but not planned
lessons. I'll do my best to get educational videos for the
children to watch and direct them toward educational games and good
living books while I'm on maternity leave, also. And then there
is always the life learning and character lessons we'll all be gaining
as we adjust to another new family member.
We'll resume official school at the beginning of May ... possibly toward the end of April.
