Four on Friday...

1. The weathermen got everyone tied up in knots about the storm coming in today...and so far, high clouds but no rain. Hm...I guess that's better than flooding!

2. D had a meltdown over math yesterday. There's no doubt he needs to be in an official class; he also needs to learn how to get anything lower than an 'A' without freaking out!

3. E is also working two years ahead of her grade level in math -- that's a bit of a surprise, but she's enjoying it. :)

4. It's weird being the only one in the family who's not currently working. I'm supposed to get my rosters next week, but till then, I feel a little guilty reading and even doing some writing when the others are so busy.

Any fun weekend plans out there?

1. I hope you don't have any flooding at all, though maybe a little rain if you guys need it like we do here (though we've had problems with flooding in parts of our state, too).

2. My two youngest were doing online school, but we are withdrawing them from the online school and doing home school instead. Hopefully I'll make it through alive--and them too. LOL No, I think it will be fine. At least I'm praying it will. ;)

3. That's awesome!! My kids struggle with math--thus the home school so I can work closely with them and start over with the basics if needed (which might be necessary for K).

4. Enjoy the free time!!! Don't you feel a bit of guilt, woman! It's okay to take time for yourself when you have it.

We aren't planning anything fun for the weekend. Just cleaning and organizing (I hope). But if something fun comes our way, we'll definitely do it. LOL

Hope you have an awesome weekend!!!

You are brave to do homeschooling, as it's some serious hard work (for you)! But I think it's great that you're willing to give so much to your kiddos. :)

Hope your weekend is wonderful too!

Writing IS work! Never forget that. :)

Impressive on the math. I am always surprised when my kids come home with good math grades. I am a reasonably smart person and I was able to get decent grades, but it never came easy to me. And yes, a B on a math paper is still good! That's how math homework goes--you hear it, you try it out, and you work with it until you get it. Even my straight-A math whiz kid gets Ds every so often on an assignment--because it's just part of the process.

We have no rain, but 85% humidity plus. Ewwwww. Either rain or clear up, sky!

Our kids go back on Tuesday/Wednesday. I'm thinking we mostly have laundry and house cleaning ahead of us...

Enjoy your weekend!

I hope you get some time just for you this weekend (ie, not having to deal with school stuff)! And the humidity -- ick! It's not quite that humid here, but it feels heavy anyway. Wouldn't it be ironic (um, not for DH) if it rained tomorrow instead? I'm not hoping that, however, because I know we'd get up and go down there anyway, just to be sure. *sigh*

Hope it's a nice weekend for you!

Did the storm hit you in the end?

We have a weekend filled with catching up with friends after the summer. Guest both today and tomorrow. Very nice! :-)

I hope the first round of guests went well :)

The storm missed us (completely) -- and today was gorgeous!
