Weekly Wrap Up–Box Week

This was box week at our house.  You know what I’m talking about, the week that UPS starts showing up daily with new school items for the upcoming year.  


The kids weren’t quite as excited as me at first, but the sight of the science curriculum changed their thinking.  (Yes, really there IS a blog post coming about curriculum choices for the new year, I promise!)

Monday we finished up our Word Roots for the year.  This was one of those items that I won in a giveaway, and the purchase another one so both girls would have a copy.  This proved to work against me as there were several differences between the two books, even though they were the same edition.   In any event, it’s another thing knocked off of our list for the year.

Tuesday night our local support group elected me as the President of the group for the 2014-2015 year.  We currently have about 130 families in the group, so needless to say, this new office will stretch me!

Our state requires that yearly proof of progress be turned into our local school superintendent.  This can be done through standardized test, submitting a portfolio of work, or having the child evaluated and then a letter sent in from the evaluator.  I take the easy way out and just do the testing. We skipped regular lessons on Wednesday morning to complete the tests for the year.  We knocked it out pretty quickly, then ran by the post office to return the package.  We should have our results back next week.  If your state requires testing, (or if you just want to make sure your kids are tracking ok), I highly recommend Seton Testing Services.

Thursday was a pretty standard day.  After ballet we came home and had a quick dinner, then met friends a the bowling alley to take advantage of Kids Bowl Free



Friday was once again the dreaded co-op.  Only three more days to go, and yes, I’m counting them down!

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up and Collage Friday.
