This week went much better, I am starting to feel alot better. Giving myself permission to be gentle on myself has helped immensely, also Treasure Moments has helped. One of the most worthwhile tasks I have done in a long time was record A Day in Our House on Wednesday. I realised that a lot more goes on around here than I give credit for. I realise I have been looking at the glass as half empty for some time, I will do better. Next week is Homeschool Camp:)
So what have we done this week? Writing - lots of creative writing by the two older boys, English Writing from Chiara, and the M&Ms have consistently done dictation. Xavier wrote blog post.
Dominic focused mainly on writing this week to the exclusion of most else.
