Weekly Recap: May 14-18, 2012

This week was full of loose ends.  Thankfully, we eliminated many of those with our diligent efforts.  All of our testing is now complete.  We closed the book on many of our subjects.  I finished all the paperwork for reporting on our year and submitting notification for next year. We are almost done with our school year.  Next week will wrap everything up and no one is more excited about that than I am.

In addition to testing this week, H13 and I attended a Y.E.S. field trip at our local community college.  Having a day alone with H13 is such a rare treat. We learned about many interesting careers in the fields of math and science.  This is the first time that H13 expressed even the slightest interest in anything related to math and science so I was thrilled to spend the day with her exploring the possibilities.  She came home talking about attending the local career center to learn more about nursing and maybe pick up her phlebotomist license.  I love it when my children make positive plans for their future.  I especially love it when those plans are within their reach and will help them reach even higher.  I savored every minute of watching my beautiful, intelligent daugther interact with others and share her thoughts and ideas with me.  It was such a pleasure to spend an uninterupted, stress free day with her.

Here are our highs and lows:

High - The language arts test because it was something I understood.
Low - Don't have one!

High - My high is reading about Mr. Tucket.  I liked that it was about cool cowboys.  Rough and tough and all that.
Low - That I'm not finished with school yet.

High - One more week of school and we are done.  I liked that I was learning about time this week in math.
Low - Don't have one.

High - Completing testing and paperwork for notification next school year.
Low - The house isn't nearly but to standard, especially for my husband.  Hopefully, I'll do better with that this summer.


  1. Wow - so close to being done! Congrats on getting all the testing done. I too love alone time with just one child. I try to make it a point once in a while to spend some one-on-one time with my oldest especially, since he's growing up so fast!

  2. Great week. Our testing is coming up at the end of the month :)
