Yes, another homeschooling blog...

P'once a little time there was a girl. This girl grew up to be a Mamma to three little girls all very much like herself. And this little Mamma knew she just had to have a place of her own to keep all things home school right at her fingertips.

Week 4: September 12 - 16

This week we must start our week with a trip to the library. Last week the library hours were all wonky because of Labor Day and the remodeling happening at our local library caused them to be closed an 3 days last week. When I finally made it to the library to return the books and CD's we'd previously borrowed, I had forgotten to return Audio CD 1 of Five Little Peppers and How they Grew. So to avoid any late fines, we must go tomorrow. How I dislike deviating from our schedule...
