Starting back up after the new year

I guess it’s time to get started again, but we’re waiting until next week for the seat work.  We’re still going to have a busy week.  We saw the Dawn Treader as a family and had a lively discussion. Yesterday we visited two Amish farms and got to see horses on a treadmill turning a small cement mixer at the first, and an adorable two-week old calf at the other.  We also got to see a bull that had just had his horns removed.  That was gross!  The older kids went on a hike in the afternoon and my oldest visited her grandmother in the hospital. I think we’re going to the Frist to see the Impressionist exhibit and then to Art Quest this week, and start back our art class with our friends. I have some more planning to do for this nine week term we’re spending studying Ancient Greek history. History takes me the longest to plan because I pull from several resources to fit our family’s needs. There is some post-holiday clean up I need to finish, my grades to post, and I’d love to have a little time to play games and scrapbook with my kids, as well as start training them with some new chores.  Enjoy starting out the second half of your school year!

By the way, just so you can put this on the calendar,  Simply Charlotte Mason is coming to Nashville for a two-day conference March 25-26! There are no other details at this time on the website, but I’ll keep you posted. It’s a great time of year for a conference, because it’s before the Curricula Fair so you can get some great ideas if you’re wanting to make some changes in your educational style.  Sonya has a book table with her materials on them and is on hand to answer questions.  Put this one on your calendar and start looking for childcare for your kids.  This is well worth the time and effort to attend.
