I’m sorry to say that I have yet to start that beautiful pattern that I won and talked about last week. I originally planned to go shopping for yarn this past weekend. But, the weather was incredibly beautiful, and I realized that I wanted to be outside, and not shopping, even if it was for yarn.
Instead I have been spending bits of time here and there knitting a scarf I started for Emma several months ago. I love this yarn and have done a few different projects with it. I love the sparkly sequins, and I love the black and deep pink colors together.
My book reading is still in the homeschooling realm.
I received a box of books from Amazon on Monday. There is nothing better than a new box of books in the mail! It is my favorite kind of mail actually. These are going to be the main books that we use for our journey into early American history this year, and I am incredibly excited about it! I still have A LOT of books to buy, but for now, I am working my way through these and trying to set up some lesson plans for the new year, which will be starting before we know it – how does that happen!?
The other book that I recently got and am incredibly excited to get into is Life Skills for Kids: Equipping Your Child for the Real World. I think that we are doing a good job at preparing our kids, but I honestly feel like I am at a loss as to how to teach them different life skills, so this book should come in handy. I have seen it highly recommended. I am only on the introduction, so there is a long ways to go before I can come to any sort of opinion on the book, but I am hopeful!
What are you working on this week?
