Trying to get back to "normal" isn't easy after a vacation. We spent last week in Orlando and tried to recover this week. We escaped the state right before the rain from the coastal storms. Orlando wasn't as hot this year as it has been in previous years. Pumpkin got it right when she said our vacation week was the calm before the storm. Well said. That is exactly how it felt. It was a relaxing week.
I did manage to send off my Notice of Intent and Test scores to the county board of education and I gave Princess a two week math schedule so that she could review her Algebra before we move on to the newer concepts. Not bad for one week after vacation. We finished our Homeschool Spanish Academy lessons this week. My review is in my previous post (Wednesday). The experience motivated me to seek out online resources to continue our Spanish studies. I found a Spanish 1 scope & sequence for high school Spanish and I purchased a used Spanish 1 Abeka curriculum from an area homeschooler. There are great Spanish videos on YouTube to help with pronunciation. I am really considering tackling Spanish 1 on my own for Princess' sophomore year. I am intimidated but I know I can do it. I just don't know if something else would suffer as there is so much ground to cover next year for all 3 girls. My homeschool budget says I need to try the do it yourself route.
What else happened this week. We are enjoying a teen bible study based on the Revolutionary Love book.
What a great time of fellowship for the girls and the moms. My friend, who facilitates the group, is so very creative. There is a craft and snack time that she really puts a lot of thought into. What a great thing to do in the summer for a small group. Last night's snack was cupcakes. Aren't these cute? He was almost too cute to eat...almost.
