Our Weekly Wrap-Up~ March 4, 2016

It's March already! February just flew by, but I guess it will do that when your spend the majority of the month sick. The family is finally on the mend. I have been praying real hard that we are done with illness this year. We have definitely done some penance this Lent.

In our life this week....Well, we finally have ventured out into the world again. I ran errands on Tuesday. We headed to the thrift store to look for summer clothes for Therese. She has outgrown everything from last year. We returned overdue books to the library and paid our fines. We been cleaning the house, catching up on laundry, and going through the kids summer clothes. I have 3 giant bags to donate already and still need to go through the most of the house. I may just get those 40 bags for 40 days of Lent. 

What I am working on.....I have gotten my sewing area cleaned up and my goal is to start sewing little girl skirts,dresses, and First Holy Communion dresses. I can't wait. I'm also working on some 18 inch doll clothes for Therese and a few to sell. I need to finish the skirts I started for myself too. Lots and lots of sewing.

In our homeschool this week....We are getting back to work after a few weeks off do to sickness. We are little further behind, but that's O.K. We usually work year round now, so we'll get it all done and have fun while doing. We started learning about biomes and the kids are going to create their own biomes. This should be lots of fun. A desert biome is up first. I'll share the kids creations next week.
The kids are still working on their country reports. I gave them a week extension since everyone has been sick. I can't wait to see what they come up with.
I'm researching and figuring out our plans for next year. We finish up with Classically Catholic Memory this year, so the field is wide up to what we can learn. I enjoyed the set of Classically Catholic Memory, so I'm sure I'll figure out our lesson in a similar pattern. It would be nice if they had a program for high school. I've been looking at Mother of Divine Grace, RC History, and Apologia. Only time will tell on what We decide on!

What I am reading.....Sadly nothing! We went to the library and forgot to get something for myself. I am going to start reading Dressing with Dignity by Colleen Hammond. I found it at our local thrift store. I can't wait to read it.

What the kids are reading.....Therese is reading American Girls Kirsten for a book report due at the end of the month. Michael is reading My Side of the Mountain
