I Read a Lot

I ran across an old journal entry from several years ago where I wrote about how happy I was to have read 5 whole books in a single month and how I wanted to spend more time reading. Old me really amused current me.

And I have definitely increased the amount of time I spend reading.

So far this year I’ve read 51 books. That’s 11 in January, 12 in February, 20 in March, and 8 so far in April. I think old me would faint to know current me reads that much (granted, old me had much littler children and so had a lot less time to read!).

More Lesson Planning

A few days ago Facebook’s On This Day thing told me that I had finished my lesson planning for the 2016-17 school year on that day last year. This year… Not. Even. Close.

But I have been working on them!

I’ve got grammar, spelling, and vocabulary for all of them and Adrian’s writing all done. Now I’m working on Cameron’s creative writing. We’re going to use The Well-Trained Mind’s Creative Writing I and it just has the lessons divided into 36 full weeks all at once so I’m having to split it up into daily activities however it makes sense to me.

I made a list of what subjects I still need to plan and I’m pretty sure our 2017-18 school year plans will be done sometime before 2019.
