Okay, it’s noon on Thursday.  I’m TERRIBLE at this!  My excuses are that I’ve been sick – still! – and also that I had a couple of writing deadlines that knocked me for a loop.  Anyway, now I have to piece together our week in homeschooling, day by day, from old blog posts and from memory.  Argh!

It’s amazing how much more we’re enjoying Charlotte’s Web than Little House.  It’s not that it’s a better book, and Naomi does love Little House.  But Little House is like a good meal… Charlotte’s Web is like dessert.  I guess you need both, but it means we’re getting through the book really fast, which is nice for a change.
