Apple Festival, A New Baby and Staying Busy...

Last week went very well, scheduling wise. The boys enjoyed working with that swanky new Firefly book I posted about, and they did really good with everything else I've been throwing at them.

This weekend we had some great company stay with us (including a new doggie that found his way here and doesn't seem in any hurry to go home), and we went to the Apple Festival in Ellijay today. Everyone had a good time, and I will try and post some pictures this week. Right now...I'm just too tired. Lol.

The week coming up is going to be ridiculously busy. Tomorrow, I'm taking said new doggie to our vet to see if he's been reported missing and/or he's chipped or anything. If he isn't, then it's back to our house to make some flyers. He's a beautiful baby that's been fixed, is housebroken and crate trained, and loves to play...surely there's a family out there missing him. :/

After the vet, Bailey has a 4H meeting. Then we are headed down to spend the evening awaiting the scheduled c-section of my new nephew on Tuesday morning! We are all SO excited to meet the new baby and we can't wait!

Once we get to greet him and give him lots of love, we are headed back home for two soccer games on Tuesday evening.

Wednesday, I'm out of the house all day.

Thursday, the boys both have dentist appointments at 9am, followed by Master's. Oh, and sometime after the dentist but before classes start, they have to have their "school" pictures made.

Then more soccer. And another 4H meeting on Friday. Aaaaaand more soccer on Saturday morning.

Yep. School? We don't need no stinkin' school. ;)

Lol, at some point in our schedules, the boys will manage at least some school work. We may still focus on the Firefly book for their extra stuff outside of T4L. I can plug some words from it into their SpellingCity flashcard maker. And even though Braeden enjoyed, and did well, with working on his reading fluency...I think he can work on his reading comprehension this week. Really make sure he understands all the big, fancy words he's cramming into his brain, ya know?

For now, I'm going to give myself a few minutes to catch my breath before sleep, and try to psyche myself up for the week ahead. I'm at my best when I'm pretending to be a sloth, so all this busybusybusybusy messes with my mojo. :D
