First off, I forgot to mention that we are now the "Sacred Heart Homeschool Academy." The kids approved of the name, so we're running with it!
I knew this week would be difficult, seeing as I'm trying to figure out how to teach 3 kids this year. My oldest two basically do everything together, but my third has to have her own course work. It's been... not "stressful," but awkward (I suppose that's the best term I can use) as I try to find that "flow" for our days. It seems to work better when I teach Kathryn first (while the others watch Marie) and then switch off.
As far as the actual materials I'm using, I will have to see if I've made the right choices as the weeks go by. So far, so good -- no complaints, and several subjects have been greeted with "oh boy!" and "that's my favorite, Mommy!"
And seriously, can I ask for more than that? I think not...
I'm looking forward to attending the Catholic HS conference in Atlanta next weekend. My husband (God bless him! I love that man!!!) is actually "kicking me out of the house" -- sans baby, mind you -- for the two day conference. Two days! I'll actually get to see the vendors and LOOK AT THE BOOKS, get a chance to listen to some great speakers (there will be a session on Catholic Mosaic, so I'm really excited!), have a FULL night's sleep AND have the chance to watch (gasp! dare I say it?) CABLE! Home decorating channels, here I come!
