1. Seems to me like you accomplished quite a lot considering your morning was shot. My daughter loved Tumtum & Nutmeg, she still pulls it off the shelf to re-read again and again.

  2. Still trying to figure out what OPGTTR is! LOL

    Sounds like you had a full week anyway! I think that is why I like writing down what we did because even though it NEVER equals what I thought we should do, it always is more than adequate once I see it all written out.

  3. Oh, the doll is adorable!

    I think you got a lot done with swimming lessons smack dab in the middle of things.

    I’m pondering “high goals and low expectations.” I’m not sure I understand… How can we set goals and then not expect them to be met? I think I might approach things in the opposite way: it seems like if I step back, they step up; if I set small goals, they exceed them.

    Glad you’re enjoying the cd’s! That makes me happy. 🙂

    Janet, I think the sense here (and I honestly might have gotten the saying backwards) is that we have an overall lofty aim, but on a day-to-day basis, WE stay grounded in reality–what’s actually do-able. I think it’s more the mother/teacher’s mindset than it is expectations for the students. Does that make any sense? I have a tendency to expect too much in terms of what can humanly be accomplished.

  5. Hi again! Since the curriculum blog hop, I’ve been looking through your blog, and I am LOVING IT! I am a crazy book mom, too (we’re moving next week, and the majority of our boxes are full of books). I hope to participate in your Read-Aloud Thursdays after we settle in from our move. I’m so glad I found your blog (and all your great reviews)!

  6. You have reminded me that I want to read Teri Maxwell’s “Meek & Quiet Spirit, etc.” book. It’s sitting her on my shelf. Must get to it soon! These little boys … they do make our lives interesting, eh? : )
