Homeschool:

Today we went to see The Nutcracker, which was awesome. Neither of us have ever been to the ballet before, so this was new and nifty. J. really enjoyed it.

Baking:

  • an indeterminate number of spritz cookies (I lost count).

This ends the holiday baking for 2015.

Writing:

I would have written more, but Nutcracker and baking. Spritz cookies are time consuming!

Homeschooling:

With the exception of a field trip, our homeschooling is done until the new year. J. completed 4th grade math today, and did quite well on the (unannounced) EOC test that I gave him (for my own peace of mind. This homeschooling thing is new. I’m still not sure I’m doing it right).

Baking:

  • 2 dozen molasses cookies

It’s the end of the writing year! I have a novel ALMOST done. I also have baking to do.So, let’s have some accountability.

Today’s score?

Homeschooling:

J. finished reading The Iliad. He also finished his 4-H Butterfly Wings workbook and took his second to last weekly quiz in 4th grade math. Cursive is coming along nicely, too. On target to finish 4th grade math next week. Debating on starting The Odyssey now, or waiting until January.

Baking:

  • one batch of coconut macaroons.
  • baked the layers for three color cookies and sandwiched them.
  • a dozen gluten-free cupcakes
  • one slightly odd Winnie-the-Pooh cake with leftover cupcake batter. (Well, I had this pan, you see…)

Writing:
