Weather: We’re still freezing over here, but not so badly today. I’ve been cuddled up in a blanket much of today trying to fend off a cold.
This Week: Regular work weeks for me and Superman, plus school for Superman. We’re still trying to get back into a more structured morning routine like we were before Christmas, but I’ve been really worn out lately. I’m trying not to get sick, so I’ve been trying to get to bed earlier and take it easy over the weekend. I’m hoping for a little more energy so I can work with the boys this week.
Current Fiction Read: Nothing right now, though Girl of the Lumberlost is next in my pile.
Current Non-Fiction Read: Keeping House by Margaret Kim Peterson.
Craftiness: Finishing the binding on Reed’s quilt, and also knitting the second sock in my first pair of socks!
Learning at home: I cleared off our shelves on Friday, so there is no work out right now. I’m going to reset everything tomorrow. There was too much dumping of materials by Little Bit and not enough proper usage, so there is nothing on the shelves at the moment. I’m going to start with 2 presentations to each child tomorrow, and see if we can get back to laying mats properly and taking care of materials. It is my fault that this slipped, so we are correcting and moving on. If they do well with those presentations and treating things well I’ll re-present a few things.
New work: Nothing this week for Montessori. We started reading the Mouse and the Motorcycle though, and Big Kid is enjoying that.
In Other News . . . I’m really really really trying not to get sick. The boys have been passing a nice runny nose and slight cough back and forth and Superman came home from work last night with a fever and all the cough and cold symptoms. My head feels full of gunk and I’ve got an awesome headache (maybe becoming migraine?) that I’m hoping to get over quickly. On another note, I started working on the first of the music education posts. Hopefully the first will be up later this week- all pending the potential cold of course. I just keep chanting, “I can’t get sick, I can’t get sick…” Off to bed for me
