May 2 – Weekly Tracking

One week down…. Off we go, marching into the weekend at half pace, after a full week of go-go-go. I, for one, am tired. Full week, good week. May there be another.

Deep breath in… We’re hitting the end of our “school year,” or at least the part where I report it officially. We’re clearly ready to be outside nonstop, away from books and the table. Deep breath out… Two more weeks.

Please, please, please bring me more spring weather! I’m in love with the green and verdant things, and all of the birdsong.

Books We Read: March 2021

Our favorite books from the 100s of March read-alouds.

Overwhelmed with work this week, so there’s no drawing section. Oh well. Pared down to the basics between grandparents and the need for down time, plus inclement weather. Are we done yet?!?

April 4 – Weekly Tracking

Okay, we’re rolling on the outdoor time this week! We’ll make it to 20 soon, and I’m super excited. Grandparents visit began Wednesday, so we shoved responsibilities into the first three days of the week, and then took two days off. Yet the documentarian in me still writes!

Road trip to Colby, KS, over last weekend. It started our week slowly, which was nice. We visited my parents’ and finally saw the new house they’ve been living in since last fall! Gained some momentum with nice weather and lots of time outside by the end of the week. We’re done with our first 100 hours outside – slow and steady!

March 21 – Weekly Tracking

We had a pretty imaginative week, filled with book-inspired discussions and real-life play of our favorite video games. The kids recreated Among Us tasks around the house with paper and the recycling, and we’ve since set them up other places in our new portable Among Us (formerly Quaker Oat) tub. The last few days: yard Minecraft. What will be next?!?

March 15 – Weekly Tracking

Lots of indoor time this week with the snowpocalypse – more than 2 feet of snow! We played in it, of course, just not for long. Huge clumps fell from our trees on top of us every time we ventured out. Group sledding on Friday was a favorite.
