and speaking of being behind
Here's a revealing statement that will chill the hearts of all you curriculum-ites out there. We are only on WEEK 6 of our syllabus. That's right people. Week 6. We are *supposed* to be on week 11. haha! What lofty goals I had over the summer! Week 11 by Thanksgiving, what giddy idealizations! But, here we sit on week 6. No big catastrophes, just countless smaller ones combined with days where mom said "
, we have *got* to take the day off and get this house together"...not to mention days taken off to go on fun field trips and play days with friends. Ah well...it's ok, really. This is our 4th year homeschooling, and this happens *every* *year*. We start in September and we finish when we finish. This pretty much means that we school year-round. I had planned on quitting for a long break after week 11, but now we will keep going as best we can until Christmas Eve and take off until after Epiphany.
