Weekly Wrap Up- The Not at Home Ever Edition

There are some weeks that make the title "stay at home mom" seem very ironic.  This was one of them.  It seems as if we were going or doing something every day this week.  School got done, but I'm not sure how or when.

Monday- Supposed to be science day.  Rushed through the morning to get school finished but found out at lunch time our hostess for the day was ill.  The children were VERY disappointed and requested that we have the other science family over to our house just to visit and play.  I agreed, looking forward to a visit myself.  Charles asked me to please not corrupt their playtime with unwanted science experiments, so I'm not sure I could count that as school time.  PE maybe?

Tuesday- Our only "normal" day in the week.  We were actually at home and did school according to a normal schedule.
The older children are up to Prince Caspian in Further Up and Further In and are reading this one independently and using a study guide I found at the C.S. Lewis Foundation website.  There are many great free resources there!
The little girls and I are reading The Magic Schoolbus: Space Explorers and doing a mini astronomy unit.

Wednesday- We went up to Charlotte to the children's theater.  The little girls and I watched If You Take a Mouse to School while the big kids explored the library with Grandmama.  We ate lunch out and then headed home for a very short rest before church activities.

Thursday- This was another hurry up and finish school day because we had a chance in the afternoon to go and play with friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while.  Some school work done and lots of fun visiting!

Friday- Again, we started our morning, finished up school as much as we could and headed out for a field trip I had planned at the children's museum.  Unfortunately, we were the only ones from the group that showed up, but we had a nice time and ran into a friend that we visited with.

Today, I took the girls to a mother daughter tea party at chick-fil-a.  We had a nice brunch and craft time.

Next week is shaping up to be rather busy also.  I think we're changing our name to the Courtney Carschool.
