Surviving.

1 Choir concert down, 1 to go.

The play is set for next Sat afternoon, with several rehearsals in between.

2 more track meets, including sectionals. Naturally, one tournament occurs on the morning of the play.

The last 2 Chemistry classes, project due, plus a final exam. All the big work has to be done by the 14th.

I'm bailing on both my writer's group meetings this month for schedule conflicts.

SCA on Tuesday evenings.

Cleaning and final staging of a house to sell.

Mother's Day and 3 birthdays.

Oh, and DH is on a business trip for the next 2 weeks. He'll be back when the worst is over. Naturally.

I'm going to need to mainline espresso or my spinning plates will start to crash down.

 At this rate, finishing up anything we can. My daughter is signed up for swim team and pactice starts at the end of the month :). Our crazy starts then. It appears we will also be having to get the little guy to a specialist and have him tested for allergies. Poor guy is officially done with "school" for the year (it was never formal anyway...) His eyes have been so puffy because of allergies, they were almost puffed shut today!
School wise tho -
Midway through biology so finish that up.
Start writing a research paper and go through the writing process so we have at least one writing sample for her portfolio.
Finishing up math and spelling this month if all goes well.

Planning the Cub Scout camp out for the first part of June.

Putting together our portfolios.

Cole has his second eye specialist appointment this month.

Then, homeschooling things in general.

Tell me more about how you plan to use TSOU! Are they just going to watch it or do you have stuff to go with it?

Where did you make that schedule at? I love it. Is it an app on a phone?

I love your plans, they sound great!

Yes it's an app called Pocket Schedule. It's saved me. It's free too!

We are "done" with our curric so I am considering trying math u see for a few months to see how we like it.
Other than that, we just finished painting the living room, need to paint the hall and outside of the bay window. Hopefully putting wood floors down this weekend.
Working on the garden, hiking, camping, bike riding, nature study.

I have the pocket schedule app (mine wasn't free though!) and it just didn't work for me. I found an app called homeschool helper that is awesome and it's like, $2.99 I think. I love it!
