Is it me, or did this week fly by? In any case, the weekend is here, and although we have next to nothing planned, I am here for it. Steve and I are going to dinner with friends tonight; we have mass tomorrow, and that is about it. Steve has watched the Olympics every night. Flynn and I started yesterday with the Women's Figure Skating, which honestly broke my heart. There was so much sadness, anguish, disappointment, and confusion at a time that should have been a total joy that I could barely watch. We will probably watch the Pairs Long Programs and wait another four years to watch again.
Today Flynn and I will homeschool, and although I don't write as much about that as I used to, I am happy to report she is doing wonderfully. I imagined 6th grade to be difficult for me, as I am much more comfortable in the preschool-lower elementary grades, but we are both really enjoying it! She loves science, especially the space unit we are studying. She actually has a small telescope and a book of stars and constellations we are looking forward to using. Flynn also enjoys world history and math this year. Have I mentioned the amazing YouTube channel we use to supplement our math? It is called Math with Mr. J, and it is invaluable! And a couple of pictures from the past few days...
My Mocha, who is rarely out of my sight. Last night we watched a total guilty pleasure show called Joe Millionaire.
And my Mom. We had the best visit this past week! She looks amazing and is doing so well. We are so thankful for the safe, clean, loving place she calls home. After I took it, I showed her this picture, and she replied that she thought she looked pretty good. Not too old! I told her that I pray I look as good as she does when I am 85! I treasure every moment with her and every phone conversation we share.
Well, I hope you have a good weekend, whatever you have planned.
Thanks for visiting.
See you soon!
