The Last Week of School

This week was our official last week of school. All in all not much was accomplished. Grace was sick two of the days with a cold. Monday I went to Jazzercise while Grace stayed home and got a little work done (Olympics Unit, independent reading, literature, Bible, and Heroes of American History) before going to a friend's house in the afternoon for some fellowship. To make up for her missing Jazzercise she rode the exercise bike in the evening. Tuesday we tied up some loose ends in the morning and went out with hubby in the afternoon to look for some used books for the lending library. Wednesday Grace had a sore throat but did go on a walk in the afternoon with us. We played a board game and watched America Story of Us. Thursday she was still sick but we read a couple of chapters from Anne of Green Gables, watch America Story of Us, and play a game. Mostly she was just miserable. Friday was errand day plus independent reading, Olympics unit, Bible, and nearly two hours of drama practice in the afternoon. After dinner we visited my mom and dad. Today she went off with a friend to help with the Post Office food drive. Now playing at said friend's house on the trampoline. Even though this is the last week of official school, I did tell her that we needed to finished the Olympic unit from Notgrass because I need to do a review of it and Anne of Green Gables as well as the remaining episodes of America Story of Us. In my mind I am trying to figure out a way to make it appealing to Grace to start doing school year round. Looking at these two schedules: three weeks of school with one week off or four weeks of school with two weeks off. Of course the weeks we have off she would still need to go to the fine arts co-op and her beginning essay writing class. We could take off most of June and start back the last week of June. I just don't know if she will go for it. Must still do some thinking.

We are shifting to a year round schedule. This summer will be the first the girls have schooled in. Hopefully Grace will adjust smoothly.

How nice for you! I hope you have a great summer. I don't think we ever a 'last' week around here. Too many kids, too much work undone during the 'normal' school year so we are always heading into the summer with some work needing to be finished! Oh well, keeps them busy!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I love that you have a Drama Girl too. :)

Congrats on almost finishing! We school year round with small breaks. Well since we are unschooling I am not quite sure how that is going to work. We loved Story of Us!
