School, running, and that's about all!
I am so behind in everything it seems....behind in my B90 reading (Bible in 90 Days)--I am supposed to be finished on March 31. I am not giving up, I am persevering, but I AM going to have to carve out some serious time to catch up. I have not used either of the two "free" days (that B90 is actually B88, you get two free days), but I plan to use them right now, so I can get caught up.
I am behind in my housekeeping.....the dusting, vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, microwave and stove cleaning, laundry, ironing....
I am behind in my household goals for the year.....the major clean-out projects.
I still have not read past the first page in my current book, Large Family Logistics.
We are on week 23 of 36 in our Sonlight cores. Now, we are not behind because we have not been doing school, it's just that we have had 4 day school weeks this entire school year. I have finally admitted to the children that we are going to have to go to "year round homeschool", since doing school 4 days a week does not allow for 3 months off in the summer! I think we are all fine with that. We take off from school when Jimmy is off from work. That's one of the reason we homeschool--to spend time together as a family. So when he works, we school. When he is off, we play and work together as a family. As my older children are getting older, I am finding that I cannot fit their courses (especially high school ones) in 4 day weeks plus having December off, plus a fall break, plus a spring break, plus 10 weeks off in the summer. That's just the way it is.
We began our Spring Break today! We had a friend come over to teach the children cake decorating this afternoon. Tomorrow Jimmy and four of the children are running a race. Tomorrow is also Clay's birthday! And Lynn and I are still plugging along with our marathon training. This week's mileage is 44 miles. We ran 17 this morning. Two weeks from tomorrow is the big day!
Here is what Jimmy and the boys have been doing lately.
