I don't feel like we accomplished very much this week, but as I start thinking it over to write this post, I think we did more than I thought. We did get 'behind' because of our "80 degrees in November" day off on Wednesday, but I don't think that will be the end of the world.
Austin has been spending most of his free time listening to books on CD, specifically The Lightning Thief. That's the first book the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series that we just finished last month. Well, the series isn't finished yet, but we finished the books that are available. He and Riley have been taking turns with the CDs. Also he was listening to Knights of the Round Table, as told by Sean Bean, which is beautiful to listen to! It's fulfilling for me to see him enjoy stories so much! It's like a dream come true... I hope it continues! Of course, it gives me a huge desire to download tons of audiobooks from audible.com --- too bad they aren't free! :)
I'm not sure if I mentioned it here or not, but this week Riley announced her desire to be an architect when she grows up! She wants to design houses, which I think is so cool! My mom has already ordered her this Young Architect kit for Christmas! LOL (Wow, it's no longer available... glad mom ordered it already!).
Next week, I really would like to do some sort of Thanksgiving crafts with Reece. She has been talking a lot recently about missing preschool. :( It makes me feel guilty, especially when I look at pictures from my friend's daughter's Kindergarten class and all the fun things they do! Kindergarten is supposed to be fun like that, so I guess I need to get with it and make some crafts with her. Google, here I come!
I'm not exactly sure how many days of school we'll do next week... definitely no more than 3, but I was thinking Tuesday would be a good day for a field trip. ;) And then I need to figure out if I want to keep a regular schedule for December, or if I want to do "Christmas School" like Lisa does. I have a couple of weeks to decide, I guess!
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
