Week 10?!?!

For each week of school this year, we are memorizing a new Bible verse song.  When we got in the car today the kids were screaming with joy to listen to song 10.  I couldn't figure out what they were talking about until in dawned on me that we are already on week 10 of the school year, crazy!!

So, how has the school year been going?  Pretty smoothly actually.  We were in a great rhythm that while Ella took her morning nap we would get most of our school done for the day.  Well, we did take a week off for our family vacation to Florida and she didn't get one morning nap in since we were at the beach every day.  When we came back, I tried to lay her down and that was it, she was done with it.  I thought, no big deal, but man it's hard to get things done.  It took us about 2 weeks to adjust to the new schedule, but I am somehow still finding a way to get everything in.

This past week, we did hit 2 math milestones.  Laney finished 1A of her math and is starting the second half of her first grade math this week.  Addison has entered into multiplication.  I looked at her next math lesson and I couldn't believe it.  I had a quick fear that I was in over my head, but I am working through it day by day.  I keep thinking to myself, "If this is what we are doing now, what are we going to be doing a year from now?"  I guess we will see what is to come....
