Happy Friday! It doesn’t seem like Friday to me. My week is all messed up since I’m out-of-town again. Yes, again, I’ve left my husband and children to fend for themselves while I’m away being pampered.

I won’t be learning any great blogging things this weekend. I’ll just be having a great time hanging out with a couple of girlfriends eating meals that we don’t have to cook off of dishes that we don’t have to wash and sleeping in beds that we don’t have to make (though I’m afraid I’m going to be missing my new Sleep Number bed).

Does it sound heavenly? It is. I’ll tell you all about it next week when I get back.

As far as school goes, we’ve just finished the first week of our last unit with Paths of Settlement. That’s strangely exciting to me, finishing this volume and getting ready to start the next one. I would apologize for sounding weird, but I’m talking to a bunch of homeschool moms, so I bet you understand.

This unit is different than the others. The last week of each six week unit is a review/wrap-up. Well, the last unit is a review/wrap-up of the entire volume. So this week we’ve been reviewing the first unit we studied – and reading about Teddy Roosevelt, who is a fascinating man.

I had some fun pictures to share with you of Megan’s latest Little Passports shipment, but they’re on my camera, which is at my house. (I know I just shared some pictures with you last week, but we missed a shipment, somehow, so we got two close together.) I did, however, want to let you know that they’re offering 15% from now through October 24, 2012.

So, if you’ve been thinking about using Little Passports as your homeschool geography, but haven’t gotten around to signing up yet, now is a good time to do it.

Brianna has started on her WWII unit and she’s really enjoying it. She’s told me at least 3 or 4 times this week how much she’s enjoying Anne Frank. She’s already asked me to get the movie from the library. I want to watch Schindler’s List with her, too. It’s such a sad movie, but it offers such a moving portrayal of that period of history. It’s been years since I’ve seen it, but I remember it being a big deal about the pains that Stephen Spielberg took to keep it historically accurate.

Well, I guess I need to get back to enjoying my weekend getaway. {grin} I hope you all are having a wonderful Friday and continue to have a fabulous weekend.

    1. You know, I am so not. I am such a homebody. It’s so unusual for me to be away from home so many times so close together. My poor dog is probably going to be traumatized.

  1. So glad that you’re having time to relax and catch up with friends! I was wondering, since you’re mentioning about this being your last unit and then being on to the next level of the program, what you’ll choose to do after the next book? It’s great to hear how well it’s going for you! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Hi Kris,
    Love your blog. Please look up Corrie Ten Boom if you haven’t already. Along with Anne Frank, she has such a great story to tell. I saw a one-woman show about her and read the book. A-mazing. They had a wall in their home where they hid jews. Anyway – FANTASTIC! Schindler’s List was amazing, but one row in front of me was a concentration camp survivor and it was soooooo emotional. I will never forget it.
    Have a great girls weekend. ENJOY!

      1. That is great.
        There is a lady who does a one-woman Corrie Ten Boom show.
        I believe her name is Susan Sandager. It may be worth looking into whether she is coming to your area.

        Take care.

  3. Sounds like you have a wonderful family that supports you well. Great kid. I can only imagine how she talks about her experiences in school. Schindler’s list is also one of my favorite movies. You should watch it with her to make her understand more with you explaining what she didn’t.
