Good morning. I'm still coughing, but feeling better. The schedule today is to get all the chores done early and go to the lake. I'll probably work the synopsis for my novel this evening, do some planning for the next one, and possibly edit a bit.

I am here, good morning! 

 

I had a digestive illness (to put it mildly) over the weekend.  I have managed to get all my menu and school planning done, but my house is a MESS.   I went to the grocery store yesterday, and then just basically laid around. 

 

 

And then today's plan got changed because DH decided that we are going to the pumpkin patch before the football game.  Which, makes sense because DD21 is here, and we are busy next weekend and the kids have just been begging for like the last month already lol.  But it's going to make for a LONG day.

Good Morning! 

 

Getting the kids moving this morning is difficult.  I knew it would be, I let them just go to bed and get up basically whenever while on break.  We are so not morning people, but it's so much more difficult to get things done if we don't get going earlier.  So yes, once again zombie children.  I got the kids all to bed between 8:30 and 9, and I think DS4 was asleep by 9.  But the girls, I don't think they were asleep until like 11:30.  They were talking, and reading, and this one needed to go pee and that one was staring out the window, and on and on.  And then with DD21 still here, it's going to be a long start.

 

Thankfully, we don't have anyplace else to go really.  Just to the pharmacy to pick up a med for DH.  Maybe I should go there first, that might wake the kids up.

 

The kids did have a good time at the pumpkin patch yesterday.  I didn't get anything done that I wanted to, but they all got pumpkins so it's cool lol.  The place we go is actually an orchard so I picked up some apples too.  They have a little train thing they made using their small tractor and some plastic 55gal drums that they cut for seats and stuck on trailers....hard to describe but it's  a simple thing.  They also have a little petting zoo.

 

Anyway, so today's plan...

 

 

DS4-

*ETC

*MEP lesson 13

*Letter of the week-C

*Preschool skills book-2pgs

 

DD7-

*Daily Math

*ETC

*MIF Ch3, pre-chapter review

*SW Lesson 11 pg 45, plus write 2X

*Speech Curriculum

 

DD8-

*Daily Math

*ETC

*MIF Ch 4 pre-chapter review

*SW lesson 7 pg 29 plus write 3x

*Word Roots intro

 

 

For everyone,they need to read a book on their own, plus we have a pumpkin book we are going to read together.  Also a science lesson, and if I can, we are going to use some pickle jars to make them all spend/save/give banks.  Plan to get all crafty with stickers and markers and stuff. 

 

 

For me, not much school related stuff-I did manage to get everyone planned out for the week and most of the prepwork is done.  Which means that my to do list is really pretty much just clean...all the cleaning that didn't get done this weekend.

 

On that note, I need to get them all moving.  If I can get them functional here early enough, maybe getting to bed......TO SLEEP.....on time tonight will be a good thing.

Good morning! Critter, you sound better, lol! We are doing a short day today, if the boys get up and get to work, I'd like to be done by 12 and then just relax. I'm thinking we should be able to get morning time, latin, math spelling, and part of a history lesson done, a little memory work to end the day and piano practice.

Aww.  That's one advantage to having them spread out like I did.  Just as my oldest was "too old" for the patch, the young ones came along and she got to play the big sissy with her little siblings at the patch. 

 

I will look that book up.  Today's pumpkin book is The Biggest Pumpkin Ever.  This week's theme unit is all pumpkins  (nice tie in with the patch huh :-)

 

Your siggie says you have 13yr old boys?  Hmm....maybe you could nudge them into some skilled pumpkin carving...see who makes the scariest pumpkin? lol

 

 

Hmmmm, total aside, I think I need to spend the evening searching for The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown video.  It's gotta be around somewhere huh?

Oh, yes, we'll be carving. One of these days I'd love to actually spend some time learning how to do the intricate stuff with tools.

Too Many Pumpkins was a favorite for a while with my boys. This year we had a reenactment of the story when my son grew pumpkins in the backyard and the vines took on a life of their own! We visited an heirloom seed company this summer and loaded up on new varieties to try next year.

DS4 is done.  I decided to skip MEP and Letter of the week today, in favor of a bit extra ETC.  He's preschool, we can get away with that.

 

The girls have found a word search page, I dunno where, and they decided to do that.  I told them they could finish it,  they are both actually reading the words, big words, like adventure, which is a big deal for them.  So I figure it counts lol.  After that, they will each start their daily math and ETC, even though they are in different books they can do those side by side.  Then I will have DD8 work on her spelling while I work on math with DD7, then switch.

Not doing too bad really, given our difficulty getting moving this morning. They are both finishing up spelling now.  Then I am going to send DD7 off to play while I intro  Word Roots with DD8, then take a break.  After that, reading the pumpkin book, then the science video. We might be done for the day after that, that might be all I can muster up.

Good morning afternoon!

 

It's been awhile since I joined this thread...

 

Everyone in my house has had the flu, since one of my coworkers got sick from his flu shot and came to work anyway, so that's been less than fun.

 

School has been a slog recently, so I changed a couple of things (it is October, after all, and we really need changes/breaks in October and February). DD finished her vocabulary book today, and we started Eastern philosophy (The Circle of Happiness from Royal Fireworks Press), which she really likes. It asks her to try to answer questions she would ask, and got a kick out of our discussion because we think differently and there is no "right" or "wrong" answer. It should only take 2 weeks if we do one lesson a day. Oddly enough, it was kicked off by our watching The Good Place on Netflix which cites several Western philosophers and their philosophies throughout the show. (Good show, but not for those who are particularly conservative, or children). Now I'm considering replacing history this year with philosophy. We did the history of science last year, so maybe the history and study of philosophy would be interesting?

 

Also, I got a book on the history of Halloween for her to read starting next week, instead of the rehash of world history that she's been struggling against since August. 

 

We're gearing up for tumbling and trampoline competition season, so DD is in the gym or out on our trampoline (self-motivated!) almost every day, except the end of last week when the flu hit hard.

Do you think it is useful towards the general goal of eventually understanding the differences in eastern and western philosophy? We are so in love with MCT, I just want to buy everything they publish now and I was thinking about this for my DD.

I couldn't decide if today should be a school day or not. Dh is home, which has been a rare thing lately and will be becoming more rare for a little while :( BUT DS had Athena's class anyway so we got through half a day's work. Not sure what we'll do for the afternoon.
Tomorrow we have another dental consult for DS, and work scheduled for Thursday with more medication if it goes well. I'm not going to set many goals for him this week but just going to keep plucking along where we can.
Next week is our last "regular" school week and then we'll bee doing school poolside in FL with my dad!

Maybe. It introduces Eastern philosophies in a very light way. I actually wish it were a bit meatier, with suggested resources (I suspect that's what their online class has, but I can't justify spending $350 for a 1 semester course, personally). But it's a good introduction, I think. It's hard to find eastern philosophy courses that aren't college level, because even if you find a philosophy course, it's nearly always based on the western school of thought.

 

Now I'm looking for high school level philosophy courses that don't cost an arm and a leg, so DD can participate and discuss with other people than just me. She LOVES discussion.

Today's schedule derailed by a dead car battery.. or something. So dead I can't jump start it with my battery pack.  Dentist cancelled for today. Not sure what to do about the rest of the week because I don't see getting the car fixed until Thursday since DH is away on business trip.

 

Since we are stuck at home, going to re-start up our school day for a few hours and get some more work done. 

After that, I am going to do MY school work for a while.

Today was a relatively good day despite getting some bad news this morning. We had a great time at the book sale and picked up a few things. We got a mini- globe that lights up for my younger Ds, R&S English 6 to use as reference for my 9th grader and a set of MUS algebra and decimal inserts for $2. I need to watch a video on how to use them, lol. We did get some lessons done today. Youngest got recitations, verbal math lesson, literature, grammar and spelling done. Bigger boy did his history and science homework for co op and studied for his tests

Ok, I didn't come back and update, but the girls got all their stuff done.  DS4 did not (yay for only being pre k) and we got none of the group stuff done today.

 

BUT....I had all kids in bed by 8:30  That doesn't mean they were asleep by then, in fact, it's almost 10 and the girls are still up.  But that's better than last night.  TOmorrow, everyone is up by 7 and dressed by 7:30.  I am hoping that will get everyone moving.

 

 

Not being a morning person in a diurnal world is hard.

Well, my kids got sick. 3/5 dropped within 3 hours. Just fevers thankfully, so they spent the afternoon laying in various areas listening to audio books while I passed out broth and motrin.

I had so many commitments this week and now I'm stuck here with no car and sick kids.. Grr.

Word Roots lesson 2 last page

DD7 is done except for reading.  I cut her math lesson short, mostly because I think it's dumb.  It's a math concept that I think is useless and he doesn't need EXCEPT that I know she will need the basics later once she's back in regular school. 

 

Right now I have everyone making their beds and picking up their room.  Then, I will have DD8 get started on her phonics and spelling.  I forgot to put down that I want her to do word roots, and I may or may not do a geography thing with her.

Science classes fo Ds, reading for DD and.. I need to think of something for history. They just finished the audio book Kaya about the Nez Perce, and since we just drove through that area on our eclipse trip I was thinking I could stretch that out. Maybe some related map work.

Kids were not quite well enough to get everything done..at least not DS9. Ds2 is still pretty under the weather as well.
DS got through TTRS and Greek, then did a single page of multiplication drill and is new reading Greek mythology but can't handle much more thinking.
DD7 woke up, did her duolingo French and told me she needed to learn Italian, Latin, hula dancing, tap dancing and "flamingo" dancing lol. I've got my hands full with her. I corrected her to flamenco, let her watch YouTube videos of hula dancing until she quit, we did MCT grammar island (almost done yay!) And then I printed her the first few pages of Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata (which is a classic Latin instruction text entirely in Latin). She decoded and translated the first paragraph with minimal help, marking verbs, nouns, conjunctions and propositions, and highlighting the word ending changes that correspond to the objects of the propositions. Paralleling what she's doing in MCT made it really easy for her to mark everything up.
DS5 is doing HWT and writing "MELEPHANT" and "MOZZLE"... Still with his joke of changing the first letter sound to M. He just needs math and I'll be pretty comfortable with the day.

Writing-(Surprise Free Write), Spelling test, grammar lesson

Literature-Tell Tale Heart, read aloud (surprise-no questions!)

Geography-I think we are starting Eastern Europe today--I'll have to check.

 

For me-French, Latin, Geometry, Grammar, Editing, Housekeeping. Today is the query letter contest. Other than that, I plan to sip my tea and live up to my evil overlord status as "enforcer of school". :D

Popping back in.

This week was fall break from the toughest classes, and that gave DS the time to catch up on the other classes. Wednesday was the PSAT.

And I have finally started organizing his college search project. In the beginning phase, I am the one doing the research. This is my third time through but first time with a homeschooler.

As for me, I have been reading a lot and keeping up with math. My foreign language studies need a reboot.
