In my life: A new learning curve is going on in my home. We are busy changing our son's sensory "diet" (a diet of activities that will help him with sensory deprivation). It is all good but a bit overwhelming.
In our Homeschool this week: We are doing a Beyond FIAR unit study on Betsy Ross. The kids and I are loving the book. The best activities according to the kids were eating sourdough bread and learning how to sew buttons onto cloth. Tom Sawyer finished his math book and took a placement test. Not surprisingly, he will be jumping over the next book. The only place where he is still struggling is in carrying with addition. No problem with division or multiplication ... I have to think about this a bit.
Places we are going and people we are seeing: Finally, we had a great field trip. I have been trying to get a field trip group off the ground for some time now. Today we had a great turn out. I think I finally have a group that is coming together. We took a tour of our local health food/organic grocery store. It was lots of fun. The kids got to go through all of the departments.
My favorite thing this week: I am so happy to finally be getting some sensory help for my youngest son. He really needs it and our family needs the calmness I can see in our future. My other favorite thing was my dd Little Red Ridinghood saying that her three favorite things were her family, her blanket and her coin collection. It is nice that family comes first.
What's working/not working for us: Keeping one day a week a totally at-home day is such a good thing for us. I am glad I have kept that a strict rule.
