Menu Plan Monday
Late week has been our first full week that no one in the house was sick. Yea! This week it is back to business as usual. School, baking, cooking, cleaning, and all that jazz, and everyone is ready for it. Things have been so off key with everyone sick and a lot has been left undone so this week we will try to get back our rhythm of living.
The boys are beginning our new school year. Kody will begin working through Eastern Hemispheres from Sonlight, Exploring Creation with Physical Science, and Teaching Textbooks. Collin will be working through Beyond Five in a Row 1 & 2 and lap booking, Key to percents, decimals, & percents, Learning Language Arts through Literature. Joseph will be working through Five in a Row 1 & 2 and lap booking, the Complete Book of Math & Developing Number Concepts with Unifix cubes, Learning Language Arts through Literature. All of them will be working on daily & seasonal activities that I will get from Little Acorn Learning.
I will be trying to get back to the bathroom curtains that I am making and getting my list for spring cleaning and home repair together. We are also going back to our three days vegetarian, one day soup, one day fish, and two days meat for dinner each week and vegetarian breakfasts & lunches. This was the pattern that we ate for years and everyone was healthier and felt better. It give us an more even variety of nutrients in our diet. This is what's on the menu this week.
