Weekly Recap 1/3-1/7/11

This week has been so different than the week I envisioned before we started our Christmas break.  We were suppose to spend this week getting back to school and settling into our new home.  That's not how things have worked out. 

All of our school books are in a storage unit in Cleveland.  They were supposed to be delivered to our new house last Monday.  Right now, I have no idea when we'll get them back.  Maybe next week, maybe not.

This week we've spent a lot of time swimming in the hotel pool. We needed to clock in more hours of physical education so that works in our favor.  Earlier in the week we spent some time at Border's.  I found time and money flash cards and a floor puzzle of the states and capitals.  I also bought several books that we've been wanting to read.  We've finished The Little Prince and are working on The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Making the best of a difficult situation is a real life lesson that my children are learning this week.  As with so many other homeschool lessons, I'm learning as much as they are as we go along.


  1. Awww, I hope you are able to get settled soon! Sounds like you made the best of an unplanned situation! For sure, you will greatly appreciate your materials when they finally arrive!

  2. It actually sounds like everyone is learning a lot.

    The Little Prince is one of my favorites.
