Weekly Wrap-Up: The one before winter break

Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! Know why I’m happy? Because it’s finally warming up a bit! I’m sure those of you in the Buffalo area don’t want to hear my whining about the cold. I don’t envy you! But, for this Southern girl, it’s been a cold.

Our outside dog has been living in the garage with a heater for a few days. It was warm enough yesterday that I kicked him out early in the day. He was happy to be out in the sunshine, but equally happy to come back inside overnight as the temperature started to drop.

Another day, it was warm enough for him to go out for a little while, but the rest of the week, we’ve all been huddled up trying to stay warm and wondering how it could be so cold so early in the year. There has been much consumption of hot chocolate.

We went to see Big Hero 6 last Sunday night. Have you seen it yet? It was so cute! If you haven’t seen it, take tissues. You’ll need them or else you’ll get a headache trying not to cry. I guess Mockingjay Part 1 is next up.

Next week starts our long winter break. We do six weeks on/one week off with six weeks in the summer and from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. This will be our 3rd year doing so, if I remember correctly. It has been such a sanity saver for us.

Apparently, I’ve still lost some sanity somewhere, though, because I’m seriously thinking of painting a couple of bedrooms while we’re off. Josh and Megan both want to paint their rooms and both are long overdue – especially Josh, so he’s first on the list.

Okay, I’ll be honest – because I usually am – the highlight of my week is not school related at all. It was having my post, 50 Reasons Homeschooled Kids Love Being Homeschooled go crazy online. I expected it to be moderately popular, but mostly with the families of the kids who responded. I never expected it to generate over 77,000 page views in three days. I’m so glad y’all enjoyed it!

That’s about it. Not too exciting, I guess, but just a week of tying up loose ends before a long break. I’m ready!

Remember, there will be no Weekly Wrap-Up next week. Enjoy Thanksgiving with your families! And, for all my international friends, just enjoy your week.

Happy Friday, y’all! I don’t know about where you live, but it was fall here at the beginning of the week and now it’s winter. Brrr! The highs have only been in the upper 30’s.  Yesterday afternoon, I went outside to feed our outside dog. He was … Click to Read More
