I survived the week!

I told ya...all that busy messes with my mojo, but I made it through the incredibly busy week last week! We were absolutely thrilled to be able to be with the family for the birth of my nephew!

Meet little Lucas Gabriel! Although, at 9lbs 6oz, I bet his mommy would say he wasn't SO little! ;)
Braeden and Lucas.
Bailey and Lucas.
Outside of the new baby excitement, we did manage to get all of the running around (vet appointments, dentist appointments, Master's, soccer games, etc) that we needed to do done.  Shocking, yes. But yaaaaay for us!

The boys' last soccer games are Tuesday evening, so besides those and our normal Master's on Thursday, this week will be slower and we should be able to have a good, full week of learnin' stuff. We have really enjoyed working with the Firefly book, but are reading to put it down for now. Well, they are ready to put it down. Now it's my turn! ;)

I don't really have anything super planned for this week. I just want them to log some hours on T4L and VSC. Without a lot of extras in our schedules, it's a good time for the them to just plow through some of the lessons and word lists. Bailey will need to start T4L's algebra curriculum soon, but I told him not to freak out about it...he can let me know when he feels comfortable. It's included in the cost of the program, but I do need to "activate" it so to speak. He wants to get a little further into the regular 8th grade math before I do that though, so I'm giving him time.

Believe it or not, the one thing he has asked to do is another writing course from Time4Writing. I knew he wanted to take the follow up to the mechanics course he took in the spring, and we were really hoping to do that over the summer, but never found the time. Ah well. Better late than never. We just have to decide if we want him to start it now and work on it through Thanksgiving and the first part of December, or if he wants to wait until January at this point. We are also tossing around the idea of letting Braeden take his first elementary online writing course. I don't know that it's something he's ready for. But...I suppose there's online one way to find that out, huh? :D

We are about to head out to my weekly torture session (normal people call this "grocery shopping"). The sooner we do that, the sooner we can get back and get caught up on our episodes of Supernatural and Haven from last week. Woot.

Hope errbody has a great week. And can I just add...last full week of October is upon us already. Wth? Who has the time-speeder-upper? I'd like to hold onto that for a bit, please.
