Happy Friday! This Friday is extra exciting for a couple of reasons. One, we’re taking off next week!! Two, my husband and I are going on a date tonight and I get to see Breaking Dawn…again!
Yes, again. Brianna and I went to the midnight premiere last night. I loved it! The really cool thing was that it ended just exactly like I had it pictured in my mind.
I think I’ve decided what I like so much about going to the midnight premiere – the theater is full of people who’ve read all the books and seen all the movies so they get it. They even get the little things that people who haven’t read the books might miss. It’s fun.
My sister won me two tickets to what we thought was the midnight premiere, but it turned out that they were for tonight. So, since Brian had to work this morning, we decided that Brianna and I would go to the premiere and Brian and I would have a date night and go to the show tonight. Works for me!
Okay, so, school stuff. It was a pretty average ordinary week here. It has come to my attention that it’s time to revamp and tweak in some areas – namely language arts and history. What we’re doing for languages arts is good (Easy Grammar, All About Spelling, and reading books that the kids select), but we’re not doing enough of some of the other aspects of language arts.
History is another area that I need to work on. I love the core that All-American History is providing, but I have really slacked off on the historical fiction and biography read-alouds that are so important to me. I need to pull those back in and work on getting things a little more hands-on.
I’m really thankful for a week off so that I can have a chance to do some planning and regrouping. I think much of the major tweaking and revamping planning will take place over our Christmas break, but I’m hoping to work on implementing a few changes after Thanksgiving.
Oh, speaking of the 10 Days of series, if you missed mine, I posted on 10 Days of Homeschooling High School.
Hey, look at that. I talked about school stuff more than I thought I would.
