This week was all about staying afloat. We had a jam packed week with our JA Biztown visit, our upcoming homeschool portfolio review, and a piano competition this weekend. Here are my Small Successes for March 11, 2010:
1) After months of planning, and weeks of teaching, our group of homeschool kids finally had their day at JA Biztown. I had so much fun playing the proud teacher of 24 very smart and savvy kids. I think I might even sign up to lead this program again.
2) We have our annual portfolio review today. Due to the overwhelming number of homeschoolers in our area, our family has been handed off to a new reviewer. I was completely bummed out over this change. I'd developed a wonderful relationship over the last 8 years with our previous reviewer. Ugh! Anyhoo, the kids portfolios are organized, books line the dining room wall, and I've written up and printed complete bibliographies for each of the kids. I'm ready, but a bit nervous. I sure hope this reviewer is as homeschool friendly and supportive as Mrs. Hadnott was.
3) This week the laundry monster tried to get the best of me. All the laundry is washed and dried, but I still have one huge basket to fold. It won't be happening today, and likely not tomorrow either, I think I may need to hire some laundry fairies to help me out, just this once.
