Wednesday being Piano Day is always a quick morning and then re-group after a late lunch and resuming where we left off for some of the afternoon. Of course all anyone ever really wants to do is play and go to their rooms to read or what not, so I don’t stress too much academics for this time of the day. We actually accomplished much in te am so the rest of the day was pretty smooth and relaxed! I’m so glad I got dinner in the crock this morning as well, so no worries about the 4 O’clock issue 🙂
So here’s the rundown: After morning prayer and reading about St. Francis de Sales…
Violet: Area and Perimeter for Math, she figured out one of the more difficult ones by herself and was so pleased, as I was!

Spelling quizes together with Matthias, they like to do this, works for me too!
