This week's homeschool plans

So I thought I would write out what I have planned this week for homeschool. As I mentioned before we are doing an adapted version of Ambleside's Year 1 Charlotte Mason curriculum for the summer. I am trying to be a bit more organized since next year she will be in school even if we weren't homeschooling.

A reads-The Hundred Dresses- reading level 5.0

                    -hundred dress project
King, Knights, and Conquers- King Arthur and His Questing Knights

Our school day still currently ends around 12:00-12:30  and we break for lunch. After lunch we hang out, relax, maybe watch a movie. A plays outside or sets up scenes in the house and we try to practice violin at least several afternoons a week as well as bake, craft, paint, and once a week A has swim lessons at the pool with a highschool swim team student. So far, we are having a lot of fun. I will try to post some pics later this week of our week. Goodnight for now.
