Weekend Links











This Week:

What I Made:   I scrapbooked a couple of pages in Noah's school book and finished up VEDA with several videos this week. 

What I'm Reading:  I'm actually still reading The Sacred Year as I said in April's Bookmarks post.  It's got so much good stuff; I don't want to rush it.  I'm also starting May's book.

What I'm Doing:  Filling out swim lesson forms... working in the yard... going to lots of baseball games... reading about body systems... finishing VEDA... 

What I'm Watching:  Once Upon a Time... the clouds... gymnastics training videos... 
Bringing Up Bates...

What I'm Enjoying:   I'm really enjoying doing these Science Fair projects with the kids.  It's really sparked their curiosity and we're having a great time working together.

What are you up to?

This Week:

What I Made:  

Muffins, science fair projects, and videos!

What I'm Reading:

I'm reading the April bookmarks book, but it's so much to think over.  Very good, but taking me awhile 'cause it's not one to be read though lightly.

What I'm Doing:

The end of the school year is feeling really crazy.  I'm busy working through the end of the year, thinking ahead to next year's classes and curriculum, and planning out our summer and what we'll be doing.

What I'm Watching:

Outdoor documentary called mile/mile and a half... very good!

What I'm Enjoying: 

Thunder and lightning... reading... Once Upon a Time...
