Happy Friday! I hope you’re having a great week and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
It’s been a busy week here. Monday, after a little school, Brian took the kids to meet his parents for lunch. You know that meant for me? A little time at home alone! I love my family, but sometimes that alone time is so refreshing. I don’t really do anything different than I would do if everyone was here…it’s just peaceful and quiet while I read my email and play Words with Friends.
We’ve been working on our salt-dough 3D map with Paths of Settlement. It’s a work in progress. I thought, at first, that it was going to be done in a week, but I think it’s spread out to be worked on over the course of the next six weeks. That works for me! We also spend some time working on making homemade pick-up sticks as our hands-on activity this week.
Tuesday, Brianna had her first ballroom dancing class. One of the moms in our homeschool group set up the classes, which will be held once a week. Brianna really enjoyed it. Her prom is tonight – too bad she couldn’t have gotten a few more lessons in!
Yes, the homeschool prom is tonight – her first! My sister, the fun aunt, took her out to get her hair and make-up done. I had a place in mind that I really wanted to go to take pictures, but I’m not sure if we’re going to have time. Then, there is the fact that the lighting won’t really be good until about the time the prom is supposed to start. Definitely be on the lookout for pictures soon, though – poor lighting and second-rate location notwithstanding.
Here’s a preview:
And the back of the hair:
Brianna will be going with a bunch of her friends tonight. I think she’s a little disappointed about not having a date, but based on my own prom experience, I think she’ll have a lot more fun with her friends.
Next week, I’ll be taking part in the 10 Days of…series, hosted by iHomeschool Network. I’ll be posting on Homeschooling 101, so if you have any friends or family who are planning to start homeschooling in the fall, send them this way starting on Monday, April 16.
Now, off to get ready for prom stuff…
