We made it through our first week back in school after the holidays! This is always one of the hardest weeks of the year. We are coming off of a busy holiday season - full of excitement and always fun things to look forward to. We then jump into a month which is always a struggle - nothing fun to look forward to and cold weather that keeps us stuck inside our home.
Thankfully, after the first day grumblings school flowed pretty easy. I changed up our schedule a little bit - placing Science, History and Art on Mondays. I have found that placing these later in the week on our lesson plans means that many times we just do not get to them - especially if we are behind on our other subjects. I would not worry so much about it but, the kids really enjoy these subjects and I need to make them more of a priority.
I am so happy to have finally made it into the doctor today ... after suffering for three weeks from a horrible sore throat. I am glad it was not strep - just a sinus infection which was the cause. Hopeful that a weekend on meds will have me feeling better by Monday. Though Monday is beginning to look like a snow day!
So, this week, what did we find joy in? Hot Chocolate and Tea and finding fun things to do inside - pictured above Devin with his Star Wars Lego ship he designed.
