A Beginning of the Week "Wrap-Up"

Having missed the end of the week wrap-up, I thought I would approach it backwards.
It is supposed to snow again Tuesday into Wednesday but there is no point at looking at a forecast, it hasn't been right all winter.
My goals for this week.

For 4th Grade
Start the Famous Men of Greece student text from Memoria Press.
Continue reading Black Ships Before Troy and hopefully finish it.
Continue with D'Aulaire's Norse Myths for National Mythology Exams.
Continue working on Math Whizz to solidify her skills, she is a few chapters ahead in BJU Math 4.
Complete Chapter 11 in BJU Grammar 4 and move on to Chapter 12, The Research Report.
Finish Chapter 5 in Abeka Science 5, study for and take test.

These days I feel it best to let her sleep until she wakes up, makes for a much better day.  In her free time she is working on making movies with her Flipshare videos though I have got to find a better software program, it is awful!   She made dessert last night, chocolate covered pretzels, which was awesome!  She is a whiz with the breadmaker too, she made a fabulous french bread to go with the spaghetti dinner she made for us on Friday night.  The DS game du jour is Rune Factory 3 and on the PC, Wizard 101.  She is listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks for the 2nd time through and is on Half Blood Prince and is busily making Valentine's Day Cards as well.  She is reading her way through the Percy Jackson books for the 4th time as well.

9th Grade
Jacob's Geometry 2nd edition Finishing Chapter 2 and taking test (she just started Geometry after finishing the 2nd semester of BJU Algebra 1.)
Continuing in Herodotus for Omnibus.
We are skipping a couple of secondary readings until she is done with Material Logic in 3 weeks then picking them back up.
Finishing Chapter 13 in World History, A Human Odyssey.
Getting through Chapter 5 in Galore Park Latin.
Art of the Ancient World continuing in DK, Art A History and projects in God and the History of Art.
And she should be wrapping up Chapter 5 in BJU Online Biology

In the meantime she is busy with rehearsals for the February Kidz Klub live skit, sketching dragons, practicing piano, (but not as often as she should), incessantly singing and hopefully, finding the floor to her room this week.
This weekend we are heading up to Charlton for her interview at Old Sturbridge Village for a junior intern position.  Exciting stuff.  There is going to be a sleigh rally, should be a grand time. 

My goals for this week:
Finish the lap blanket I am making for a friend, these huge needles are killing my arms.
I am plowing through Jim Butcher's Dresden Files books and am going to finish the last two and then figure out what to read next.  I reviewed them on my 100+ Reading Challenge page.
I will be turning 46 tomorrow, Mike bought and installed a hanger for my tv to go on the wall, I love it there.  I had a fabulous lunch Saturday with my sisters, my Mom and my niece and nephew at the British Beer Company.   I love that place.  I have received some treasured cards from some wonderful friends and bought myself a game I didn't have yet with my Mom's present.  Mom also got me a sweatshirt from our favorite catalog, Bas Bleu.  If you don't get it or haven't seen it, go here now.  You'll want to.  
I am waiting to get our taxes back some time this week to get some stuff for next year.  We've decided against BJU for Chemistry.  After a ton of research we are going with The Spectrum.  As it is pretty pricey we are going to order it now with the tax return money, while we have it. 

So that is my Weekly Wrap-up.  Maybe it's better this way, at the end of the week I can look back and see how we did.

Finally, I will leave you with a bit of humor, I took this video with my new phone yesterday.

You're an industrious bunch, aren't you? I feel lucky just to get dressed every day sometimes! I guess that'll get better when the kids are a little bit older. Right? Please?

Love that dragon picture!
