Not preserve as in keep it safe, but preserve so I don't lose all the memories. The funny, sweet, frustrating and annoying ones that come together to make up my life.
I knew it needed to be simple or there was, an is, no way I'd be able to do it with any consistency. And it is very easy.
Throughout our five day school week I'll take pictures (Yay for camera phones!). Then, I'll choose five that represent different parts of our week. Or that are just funny. Or sweet. Or embarrassing. I could go on for a while.
I can't promise they'll be exciting because my life is pretty unexciting as a rule. Which I actually kind of like. Boring isn't always bad.
So, this week for my very first five in five we've got:
Our first book report done. Yipee!!
When I told James we get to pick out books for our next book report on Monday he groaned. Huh, I guess he's not quite as excited as I am.
I've copied and pasted pictures of simple projects for each holiday we intend to celebrate through our school year. I then printed them out and stuck them in a binder so I could pull them out, pin them to our white board and have a "list" of fun and easy projects to do without any last minute searching.
These are our Halloween ideas.
This is what my school room table looks like in the middle of our school day. Every single day.
Makenna joined a book club last month and has been having a lot of fun. She won this cute bookmark at her meeting on Monday.
I've been having a pretty great time, too. It's fun to sit and talk with other homeschool moms. I don't get to do that often. Ever.
And this is how we all feel at the end of the week.
Well, I do anyway.
Even though this is actually Josh. Asleep.
How? I have no idea. A boy I knew in college once told me that all boys can sleep anywhere and I'm pretty sure this is proof.
