I took some time on Friday to figure out where we are in our homeschool and where we would like to be. I decided that since we have had 10 weeks of school since the start of the year, we would take these next two weeks to finish out any things I wanted to finish in the first term. I then planned the next two terms, but I'll get into that in another post. For now, I want to finish up our term on Robert Louis Stevenson, Renoir and the Opera. I want to get to lesson 60 in our Language Lessons books (there are 180 lessons, 3 terms, you get the idea), get to Moses in the Old Testament and I wanted to finish reading Twig. Here's a peek at what we have planned for this week.
Old Testament ~ Chapters 25-28, Catherine Vos The Child's Story Bible
Fairy Tale ~ Hansel & Gretel
Twig ~ 8 chapters

We will be attending our weekly Waldorf Handwork group as well as participating in a Plankton Pull with our Homeschool Adventures Group. I'd also like to take the girls over to the park for a picnic lunch one day before it gets so hot that I never want to go outside (considering it has been in the 80s steadily for weeks now, I'm afraid that time is coming faster than I want it to).
I think that about sums it up. What are your plans this week?
