Happy Friday, y’all! How was your week? It was our last week of summer break. We’re kicking off the year with an eclipse. How fun is that?
So, the plan was that I would spend some time doing some serious planning this week. That hasn’t happened. I’m not stressing about it, though. We never jump into everything the first week anyway. I’m planning on doing math, reading, and writing every day. We’ll build from there.
Last Friday night, I went to take the dogs out and noticed a tiny green tree frog on the porch rail. Brianna captured him for me since I was dealing with the dogs. My initial reaction was, “New pet!”
Then, I decided that if I were a tiny green tree frog, I wouldn’t want to be someone’s pet. Plus, I really don’t need another creature to care for. So I settled for taking some pictures instead and put him back where we found him.
Probably the coolest thing that happened to me this week – and it’s way up on my all-time list – is that I discovered my name on the back of a book! Like a real, actual, in-print book.
It was the first book in the Bax Classics series, and it included a quote that I gave them – right above a quote from Sarah Mackenzie. Squee!
Maybe one day my name will be on the front of a book.
I probably need to update my curriculum page with what we’re using this year, but I haven’t had time yet. Of course, we’re using Teaching Textbooks for math. Josh doesn’t have to do science this year, so he’s pretty excited about that. Megan is doing biology, and we opted for BJU’s biology, which looks surprisingly colorful and engaging for a textbook.
She’ll also be using Short Lessons in U.S. History as her history spine, and both kids will be using the most long-standing curriculum in our homeschool, Easy Grammar.
Now, I think I’m off to enjoy my last Friday of summer break. Y’all have a great weekend!
