Homeschooling is going great...now. Ben and I were having some attitude issues in math, but it's amazing what 2 superhero figures and a scrabble can do to boost enthusiasm! I was the bad guy in one corner, and Iron Man was Ben's figure in the opposite corner. The star square in the middle was the city I was trying to take over. Iron Man had to beat me to it, or doom and gloom. We are working on addition and subtraction with 3 digit numbers. Everytime he answered a problem in his workbook correctly, he got to move the number of ones. For instance, 100 + 209 = 309, so he got to move 9. If he missed it, I got to move 9. If he took longer than 1 minute to answer, I got to move a square. It was great. He made it to the city first and I had only advanced 4 squares! Thank the good Lord for the inspiration!
We are doing pretty great on our budget. I would still like to cut the food cost back some more. I spent 64 last week and 46 this week. I would like to make it to 25 or 30/week. If I would sit down and do a plan, that would probably do the trick! I need to get back into that.
Next week, after I get my special orders done, is going to be dedicated to decluttering in a major way! I'm going to document our progress. We have wayyyyyyyy to much stuff! Especially toys and kid's clothes. Yikes!
Well, back to spinning! Take care!
