I have also been quite busy with homeschooling. We have a full load each day and it doesn't leave a lot of time for relaxing. I think a lot of it was just getting all the wrinkles ironed out. I am hoping to have a bit more free time now that I am fully familiar with our curriculum and we have gotten into a rhythm. We added a new Bible curriculum this week and I love it! It's more time consuming but it has lots of activities and crafts for the girls to do...they love it too!
I feel we spent a large portion of September running from place to place as well. The girls started American Heritage Girls for the year so we had a bit of work involved with that. Mostly gathering the various bits and pieces for their uniforms and trying to decide what badges we needed to order/work on this year. This year is Megan's first year in the organization and she was pretty excited about that. Annie participated last year but has moved to a new squad this year with other girls in the second grade (last year's squad was full of girls who were a year older than she was). I also had my monthly Bunco fun to attend as well as a yummy Tastefully Simple party.
So, if you throw all that stuff together and mix well, it means you don't have much time to update your blog, respond to emails or even update your Facebook status! Here are some photos of our busy month. Enjoy!
