Small Successes for July 22, 2010
Do you fly with the FlyLady? We do to a certain extent and it has really helped over the years to spend each week focused on just one zone in our house. If you haven't checked out her home blessing website and you are floundering with the housework she is worth a gander.
1) If you fly with the FlyLady, we were in the master bedroom this week. This is my favorite week. Our bedroom is my sanctuary and there is nothing nicer than heading to pray or read or sleep in a clean and organized room. Our room rarely gets out of control so cleaning this zone is relatively quick and easy. I did vacuum, dust, and wash the bedding this week. Hooray for crisp clean sheets!
2) I finished filling out portfolio review forms for the year and sent our intent to continue homeschooling this coming year. Nothing like staying legal with the county :)
3) I've really been focusing on the plan for Karate Kid next year. She really has exhausted what math there is offered for homeschoolers and so we've decided we will dual enroll her at the local community college. I was looking at the dual enrollment offerings and there is much there for her to be excited about. I've selected a math course for her, but now she gets to choose between Italian, Journalism, World Literature, and Creative Writing. I wonder which course will most intrigue her. She and I also came to a decision on science for the coming year. I plopped down $240 for her Anatomy and Physiology course through Kolbe Academy. We've really loved the high school science courses she has taken from Kolbe. This one should be a very interesting one.
Bonus: My tart adventures continue. Last night it was a lemon curd tart. YUM! I also came across the easiest tart crust recipe you could imagine. Absolutely no refrigeration or rolling required! It was absolutely buttery and delicious. If you're a tartophile, you have got to try this recipe for the crust!
