The Weekly Wrap-Up: Field Trippin' & Co-op Classes

reading together

Whew!  Another week down.  Is it still September?  This month has seemed really long to me.  It's almost over though.  I'm ready for a new month, as great as September has been.  

Maybe it has just seemed long because of all of our starts and stops with school this month.  This week was really a pretty rough week.  I'm chalking it up to lots of fatigue on my behalf, a son who just. could. not. focus., and ...did I mention that I was tired?  That means my patience level was probably pretty low, too, which isn't a good addition.  I'm so glad that "tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it"!  

We had a fun field trip this week to tour the LST Memorial 325.  This ship actually landed on the beaches in Normandy on D-Day.  What a history!  We really enjoyed our tour and speaking with the veterans who were stationed throughout the ship.

Today was our final day of co-op for the 1st quarter.  So we wrapped up our classes in Creative Writing, the Parables of Jesus, Muscles & Fitness, and the Constitution.  It's been a fun set of classes!  Now we have a couple of weeks off before the 2nd quarter begins.

I'm so ready to have some down time this weekend.  Today is a gray and rainy day and I think I'm off to take a much-needed nap!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hate those stinky unfocused weeks. We've had some days like that lately! Hoping that a new week, and new month, are just what you need!
