Wrapping up our Week

This week was a bit of a slow school wise, pretty much we stuck to the three R's.  Dr. Robinson would be proud, but I still worry that it's not enough.  

I'm slowly learning that some weeks are just like that, we all get into funks now and then.  The other weeks that we really dive in, make up for the so-so weeks.

I've been thinking more and more about scheduling in short breaks throughout the year.  Might just be what we need. 

Thursday turned out to be a pretty special day, we received great news that we may have court in 10 days!   We should hopefully hear on Monday when exactly our court date is, and we can book our tickets.


Also, on Thursday Jim took the day off to get our fingerprints updated.  That means a trip to the big city. Poor Detroit, all the stress is showing, I hope it can make a come back soon.

Later in the afternoon we took the kids to lunch, and to the apple orchard to pick out pumpkins.  The weather was perfect.

We spent the evening getting organized and packing.

I'm looking forward to finally having a weekend off work.  We are staying close to home, and having some very special overnight guests.   I'm sure I'll have some cute pictures to share next week!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. You know, that's the beauty of homeschooling. Each family finds their own beat to march to...sometimes the drummer gets a little off beat...oh well. I like hearing what other homeschoolers are doing. It is definitely not a one size fits all!

    I think you would like the breaks.

    I'm sooo excited about your travel/trip. It's hard to stay grounded at this moment in time.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I wouldn't worry that it is not enough. Over the long haul, somehow, it all works out. We had entire years that stalled, but it always came around (I have grads and younger ones).

    I hope all works out with your court date.

  3. I hope your house guest let you get a few things done :) Thanks for linking up!

  4. Patty and Lori, thanks for the reassurance! It's nice to hear from experienced HS Mom's. :)

    Jen, they will be great. I hope you guys can relax and have fun!
