Week 15 Snowflakes
Other than that here is our week by school-age child:
CC: Christmas party, cello recital, reading, indoor sky diving, reading, math, party, reading, math, judo, square dancing, math, reading
LB: playing, math, reading, pajama day, about me poster, snowflakes, math, reading, singing, math, reading, judo, square dancing, playing, exploring, gingerbread people, math, playing, reading
We've reduced the week to our math+reading requirements which is a pretty good workload for the last two weeks of the year. We're doing lots of Christmas carol singing, decorating, present wrapping, baking, and enjoying each other.
I'm rethinking some of what we use for school for the new year. I'm looking to add some formal geography memorization to our week. I'd like the girls to learn the names, capitals, and locations of all of the countries in the world. If you have taught this and have a recommendation, please let me know.
My thought for this week is to stop and enjoy the right now without comparing it to what you think it should be and without trying to hold on to it or get more of it. Just enjoy it as it is, just like a snowflake.
