Despite the slow moving week, we got a lot done. The kids loaded up our library crate with plenty of books and I recently (just last night, recent--staying up late again...) created a reading log for them. Unfortunately, we had already returned some of the books before they were logged. Doh!
My favorite part of this week was listening to the kids review Classical Conversations subjects without being asked! Every morning, if they get their chores done early enough before we start homeschooling, they get what I refer to as "Free Time". They can do what they want (within certain parameters of course) for whatever time is left before 9:00 a.m. If that means they want to watch a little t.v. or play a game or even go snooze for a few minutes, it's absolutely fine with me (Don't worry, I limit their screen time to 60 minutes a day and that's on any screen, whether it's the t.v., a game device or what have you. Sixty minutes total.) Now, since they often forget to get their chores done early, they end up with very little to no free time at all. However, one day this week everything was done in plenty of time and instead of turning the boob tube on they took out their Classical Conversations cards and reviewed math and the history timeline. I was doing dishes and I could here them reciting it. I was very pleased. Wise choice kids. Wise choice!
That's about it for now. We'll be starting a new missionary book this week. I have 3 to pick from. I'm not sure which one it will be. Next week I'll write about our "Quiet Time". It's a bit like "Free Time" but beneficial for everyone, especially me!
Happy reading...and logging!
