Our week in review

I am a little late on this, seeing as it is almost Tuesday, but I am trying to keep a running list of what we do each week for my homeschool records. This past week was my first week of doing this. I thought I would share on here. Our homeschool day at the moment starts around 10:00-10:30 in the morning and we are done right around 12:30 if not earlier. As A gets older, we will of course add more time, but for now this works great. We also tend to have one day a week off where we do very little homeschooling. This is whatever day we just need a day off, or life gets in the way, and if not, it is on Friday :)

Anyway, enough talk, here is what we did this week...
