This week has been one of preparing for Lent, spending a lot of time with math, getting to know about several Presidents, and also taking a special field trip. Most of our reading centered around Presidents. We read a biography of John F. Kennedy and also one of George Washington. We still have Lincoln's to finish next week. The "Who Was..... ?" series is my Favorite Resource This Week! (I found them on sale at Sam's Club - 2 for $5!)
Most of the local school children are on "winter break", which means it's a perfect time for us to be doing school! We will take a two week break at the end of March, so we are going full steam ahead right now. This time of the year is typically hard, and this year is no exception. Our homeschool is busy, my husband's job is exceedingly busy, and it seems as if everyone is overwhelmed. I am trying to say NO a lot and make plenty of time for play and rest.
