Weekly Wrap-Up

I have to admit, we are having a seriously relaxed last month of school. We finished our year-long study of the Chronicles of Narnia. All of our co-op classes are done, and most of our other outside activities have finished for the summer.

We're still doing math everyday, and we are now reading George Macdonald's The Princess and the Goblin. I thought this was a great tie-in with the Narnia books. Besides that, we enjoyed the last day of the Festival of Nations at Dollywood on Monday…

Field Day on Wednesday …
(That's not me, but I ran my first 5K on Wednesday during field day!)

Duncan had his first speech therapy session this week. His therapist was awesome, and I think he's going to quickly conquer that beastly "R" sound.

Since Laurel has finished most of her work except for math, she's been working on American Heritage Girls badges and also doing planning for our AHG summer camp. We have our 7th-12th grade girls be camp planners and leaders, so this involves several hours each week.

Today, several of the teens in our support group are volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Knoxville, so Laurel is spending her afternoon sorting and labeling cans.

Tomorrow we head to Nashville to fill our van with Jesse's stuff, and then he comes home from his first year of college on Tuesday! We're so excited to get him back for the summer but really, really proud of him. He's done fantastic his first year and so far feels good about his final exams.

That's what's happening around here this week. Next week: two end-of-the-year ceremonies and then the beach!

  1. Oh, what a fun sounding week. We are hoping to move to East TN this summer. :)

  2. WTG on the 5K!!!

    Sounds like a great week. We try to hit the amusement park once a week in the spring/fall and avoid it like the plague when school's out. LOL
