A Summer Project Update
At the beginning of May I posted about a few summer projects that I'd like to accomplish. I guess if you look at the summer as a whole, I'm making good progress. If you think about how long these tasks would take if I just buckled down and did them...well, whatever. :)
--Bible Memory Passage book: I'm almost done with finding and formatting the passages to print in my notebook. Susan brought hers (which she managed to save before leaving the roost...), so I can check my list against hers and see if I'm missing anything. I also bought the paper and binder, which is a less easy sounding task when you consider that taking the kids in and out of the car took longer than buying the materials.
--Manipulatives for Katie: Ha. The 'progress' I've made is to bring home my mom's stack of felt from our homeschooling days, but I also finally remembered to buy sticky post-it tabs so I can start making some choices about projects and such for the fall.
--More organizing: Success! I bought a little cubby hole shelf with bins, and that's helped a lot in terms of containing and hiding the mess. But there's always more. As the fall approaches, I have dreams of making the guest room closet into a homeschooling closet with everything organized into bins.
The last big project is the freezer/meals, which probably deserves its own post. Stay tuned!
