I spent the majority of my day yesterday on school. First, on writing last week's review. Then, on planning out how I want to proceed. Finally, on planning this week. I thought I'd share with you what we have planned for this week.

On Wednesday we have to make gluten-free & dairy-free muffins for our Handwork group. So, I decided to make that a "Kitchen Day". We will be baking GF/DF muffins together, preparing fruit (also to take to our Handwork group), reading together from "The Pioneer Sampler" (p. 6-16) and making soup together. Then, we will have Handwork that afternoon (the girls are learning and practicing cross-stitch at this time).
I think that about sums it up. What are your plans this week?
