Monthly school reports are due. No biggie...just gotta do it!

Usual weekly routine of Boy scouts, church, karate, cribbage, walking the dogs 5x a week, etc.

Spring break week this week! We went to the zoo and did some other fun stuff.

I planned on completely and totally organizing everything. That hasn't quite happened yet but most of the hs material is taken care of.

Finally had some time to check up on cafe mom today, and it's been scattered lol. I've had tabs up to post to for awhile now lol 
This week has been SUPER busy. Jamie auditioned to be in the play Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We're leaving in a little bit to go to their first official rehersal, and tomorrow they have a rehersal too. Tuesday was our only day of NOT having anything so we got as much school work done that we could get done for the week that day. Wednesday, the local college has "wellness wednesday" where the last wed of the month is free, so we went swimming to start prepping for swim season. We were there til about noon...and for it being an indoor pool...it was cold!! The rest of the day was dedicated to cleaning up the house for game day which was today. The guys just left from that.  Tomorrow we have co-op and rehersal, so we'll hardly be home. Saturday I'm running a 5K (which I am so not prepared for!!!) and then sneaking over to the Homeschool Confrence if I haven't died lol. Hopefully Hubby will help me catch up on the homework with the kids Saturday...

We started our Human Body unit and his 3rd grade Grammar and Writing.  He is still pretty stoked about both of them.  He has to give a presentation on Neil deGrasse Tyson tomorrow for Co-op.  Tomorrow is going to be crazy at work too.  I had a test today for my class and haven't slept in way too long.  I am so ready for the weekend!

We're doing Spring Break next week when Hubby is off for five days. Woot! I hope to organize things but I think we both know that's not going to happen. LOL

I have a bunch of books on all the different systems in the body.  We are doing them in sections.  I have the book Watch Me Grow and it has a bunch of experiments and projects to go along with each system.  We are also using the Human Body Detectives and Magic School Bus.  I have Youtube videos as well.  Pretty much I am just throwing it together a little at a time.  We are doing Cells this week.  He is enjoying it so far.

I need to do this!

Quoting ablackdolphin:

Today is kind of a messed up day as I had a Dr. appt this am.  Good thing DH did lots of Science with DD this weekend.  I'll see what comes when DS goes down for a nap and if DD is ready to do a little work.

The rest of the week is somewhat quiet. We'll try to get back into math after a little time away from it.

I've been trying to plan a few things for upcoming themed days like April Fools, May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day etc.  She always gets super excited when we have a special day so I try to use every opportunity out there!
