Weekend Update

This post will be brief.  We have been busy. We are adjusting back to our normal schedule of home school, housework, Classical Conversations, tutoring, and work at the gym.  I took some pictures this week to capture some of our moments.  


This is a common sight in our home, my middle child and my youngest sitting right next to each other talking or playing.  It always warms my heart to see them together.


We use Math U See in our homeschool, but we will probably be switching over to Saxon in the next few years because that's what Classical Conversations uses in their Challenge levels.

This is the placement test I will give oldest daughter to place her in the right Saxon book when we finally make the switch.  I decided to take it myself to see how much I have retained since my last math class over a decade ago in college...

Let's just say I am glad I took the test so I know where I need to begin again.  I am in the process of acquiring a Saxon math textbook and answer key from a friend so that I can begin working my way through all the things I have forgotten.  I am actually looking forward to the process.  I try and model scholarship for my children as many home school parents do. The next step for me is take a serious interest in improving in mathematics.


I made sushi at home today. I am trying to be more diligent to plan and prepare interesting meals at home so we avoid restaurants and thereby, save money. Sirloin steak and pork tenderloin with vegetable fried rice are two other meals on the menu this week.


This is a photo of my beautiful new mug.  The bright yellow and blue actually serve to cheer me up on these colorless, Connecticut winter days.  The hot coffee doesn't hurt, either.
