That was unexpected

Katie had gone to the beach to stay with my mom and attend a day camp for this past week. This isn't the first time Katie has gone to stay with mom for a week, but this time she was really missing her sisters. Not Daddy and I, her sisters. She was having a good time at the camp, but otherwise wasn't having a good time.

In my quest to try and become a 'responsive mom' I decided that maybe we should all pack up and go down for a visit. One of my dad's apartments just happened to be available so we had a place to stay. We left Tuesday and have had a GREAT time.

Of course I HAD to come home with a head cold. Always...

We did have to do school. I could not let another week slip by us. So, behold, the Traveling School:
In prep on Monday night I also downloaded two books from Librivox; The Iliad for Boys and Girls and Anne of Green Gables. I burned them to CDs before we left Tuesday morning. We chose to listen to Anne of Green Gables for the drive. It is so long we are still just a little of halfway through. I considered that school for the two driving days. We still end up a little behind, but nothing we can't make up once the Fall really gets going.

I'm glad to be back and am hoping that with a little rest this weekend I will get to feeling 100% soon.

I love your school in a bag. I am awful about keeping going with our school when diversions come up (which is One of the reasons we school year round). What a wonderful, close knit family you have!

A family of six living and learning. You might catch us outside in the mud or working on crafts. We always seem to be on the go, come on and join us.
