Weekly Wrap-up!

This is the "Why did I decide we didn't need Spring Break edition?????" Not a lot going on here on the school front. Everyone is essentially just plodding along. We're doing Tapestry of Grace for our literature, history, bible and fine arts; and while we've really enjoyed some of it, other parts are just a trial. Looking at continuing it next year though, simply because I do enjoy the richness of the curriculum. I just need to make it work for us and make sure the kids are leveled right.

Rylan and Sissy are doing Little Hearts for His Glory (Heart of Dakota), I love it. Wondering where this curriculum has been all my life. Simply can't say enough good about it. Rylan is working alot on his simple addition facts and phonics, doing a great job of it. Sissy is tagging along as a preschooler, but really keeping up just the same. Dakota says Sis has better handwriting than he does, which is rather sad as she is a left-handed preschooler and he is a 7th grader. Oh well, you can't win them all.

We have received an answer to prayer, CJ is starting his new job on Monday. It will be the first time in his working career that he won't be considered self-employed and will enjoy benefits like a regular fellow. Thank you, Lord! Unfortunately for me, he'll be paid totally different so i'll have to revamp how I pay the bills and reorganize my thought processes. Glad to do it, just have to make it work for us while at the same time work with by Financial Peace University budget.

Including a picture of the snow we received the first day of Spring, almost 10 inches. By Monday it was sunny and 60 degrees.

This was the sunset Monday night, like God was saying sorry about that snow; here's a beautiful day for you. We enjoyed it for certain.

Sorry our week was so boring, head on over to Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see how everyone elses week went.

I have a friend that uses Tapestry of Grace for her family (5 kiddos)and she loves it but she says you just have to make it work for your own family. That sunset by our creator is amazing!! Thank you for sharing it with us.

I've struggled with some curriculum. It has taken me many years but I'm finally to the point where I feel okay skipping or swapping stuff when it doesn't serve us.
