Weekly Learning Review

Public school started today. Why they start on a Thursday is beyond me. The picklets were antsy to sit outside and watch the public school kids walk to school. Point and laugh is how Cool phrased it. "No use," I told them. "You re-started Monday from a 2 week break and have nothing to laugh about." They sulked.

So instead they slept until 9, ate Poptarts for breakfast, did 90 minutes of school, mowed at Gaga's and kept pretty busy. School went pretty good this week. We are kind of falling into a groove, something we desperately need. The work has been book and paper work for the most part. We will start more fun projects in September. Here is the run down.
