In my life this week...
There has been nothing interesting. Well, nothing except having to pass up a possible $2000/week account. Long story. It's painful to think I had to pass that up. I'll move on to more positive things now.
Positive: Switched meds for one of the girls (we use natural meds). She started them today. I should see a difference tomorrow. She had to go a few days without any at all and let me tell you.. it was not pleasant. Now I have to do the re-evaluation for the other child to see what improvements we can make in her meds as well.
In our homeschool this week...
We're at the end of Week 9 of Term III. My girls took an online science class that they really enjoyed. They enjoyed it so much that they want to take it regularly! They love science. So that's exciting. I think I'll be looking more into that.
Lorelai's reading is definitely improving by leaps and bounds. It's been a long road for her but I think it's finally really "setting in" for her now. Alexis is beginning an online writing program. I've never been big on online courses, but it seems to be doing well with us these days.
We're starting a unit study. Now, I've never been big on unit studies. But since these fall right in with the Charlotte Mason method, I'm so very excited. You can read more about that and enter a giveaway to receive a unit study yourself!
Things I’m working on...
I'm thinking of shutting down my cleaning service. I think it's seen it's day and I am tired of trying to resuscitate it. Really.. the plug needs to be pulled. This economy isn't working for me.
But I need to replace my income. So I'm trying to figure out my next move. What can I do to earn money yet stay home to take care of the girls? Gotta put on my super-powered thinking cap.
- Cheesy Ranch Chicken Pasta
- Hearty "Perfect" Chili (my recipe)
- Southwestern Baked Potatoes (my recipe but not on a blog yet)
- Cheese Enchiladas
- Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops
- Copycat Panera Broccoli and Cheddar Soup
- Nothing planned..so that usually means pizza
