Monday:  Great school day today!!  Everyone got ALL their assigned work done, mostly BEFORE lunch and we were able to play, and sew and finish chores, play outside and have a nice dinner, rosary and in bed by 8:30!  I just love days like these 🙂

Violet is making beautiful progress in her Flower Fairies Copybook.  She is really doing a lovely job with her cursive, all in colored pencils too! We’ve begun Latina Christiana I and it’s going very well, mostly review to start, but she likes it so far which is a good thing.

Matthias cruised through his lessons today, it was phenominal to say the least.  We really didn’t have too many distractions and he focused very well.  His piano is coming along so nicely and having his practice break right after math first thing has ben awesome.  His Space notebook is looking very good too, it’s a great project for him, I’m so pleased.

Seamus is totally enamoured by The Moon of the Chickarees, our new Jean Craighead George read aloud, pleasantly about red squirrels for his new unit!  He is such a joy to have participate in our learning and tries so hard.  He’s doing superior in math and wants so badly to read, so we’re working on it!

Sean-Paul is just too cute for words, speaking of which, I think his vocabulary has increased exponentially this past few weeks, there are so many, and more each day.  He said, "raining" as plain as day this morning!  He loves to announce "ro-a-rie" before gathering for evening family Rosary, too precious. 

Made my favorite, Chicken Stew with Biscuits for dinner and a yummy Ceasar salad, a hit with ALL!

Tuesday:  Our day seemed to zip by and then it was time to go Vote with daddy and take Violet to ballet.  We ended up staying in town and all having dinner at our favorite Italian place while Violet had her class.

Wednesday:  Library Day, Piano and a fun afternoon with our Teatime!

Thursday:  We’re going full swing into Ancient Greece and are thoroughly enjoying The Children’s Homer, as well as the many books I have found on Greece at the library!  Seamus is having a blast with his Squirrel Unit and we are certainly in full November weather, it’s a rainy and cold day!  Good for hot cocoa and popcorn!!

Friday:  Baking pies for the Womens Craft and Bake sale tomorrow at church!  Went to a new park near there, but it was almost too cold to play for very long!  Oh well, at least we know where it is and will definately play there on our next sunny outing day!  We did spot many squirrels in action so that was cool!
