We got back into schoolwork this week after taking most of December off. I think we were both ready to start back into a routine. Well, probably me more than Lucy! But there wasn't much complaining, in any case. The hardest adjustment was having to wake up early on Tuesdays and Thursdays again to get Matthew to preschool. And it doesn't help that we've been getting A LOT of snow here. It's snowed almost constantly since New Year's Day. We've got about a foot on the ground, and now we're expecting another 10-20 inches today and tomorrow. Whew!
We're continuing our study of the Middle Ages. History is Lucy's favorite subject, and she likes to come up with her own projects about whatever we're studying. Yesterday she made a diorama of a monastery, complete with monks and little Bibles, and even a desk for the scribes to work at.
Lucy went to a Girl Scout meeting this week, and then next week her dance class starts back up. Our new homeschool classes begin at the end of the month, with art, field trips, and we'll be doing some Rosetta Stone languages online. I'm just hoping the snow isn't too thick for us to participate in the classes!
Oh, and I did something I've been thinking about doing a long time this week. I started a book blog: http://marcijohnsonbooks.blogspot.com/
