That sounded like a better title than my recent "Homeschooling Week of ..." posts. This week, we did a lot of science. We got a Magic School Bus science kit from Barnes & Noble last week. So this week we've been working on the experiements that came with the kit, in addition to reading library books about the different body systems and watching DVDs about the human body.
Another homeschooling event this week was that Patrick's new math books arrived. He's starting Saxon 6/5, which says that it's for your average sixth grader or advanced fifth grader. He did the first two lessons and decided that it's too easy. Here's hoping it gets harder and I don't have to buy something else yet.
Doula stuff has been slow this week, which is probably why we got schoolwork done every day. All I really did was update my availability on http://www.doulamatch.net/ and hang out at http://www.alldoulas.com/ (if you're a doula, you can register there too). I am "on call" right now to babysit for a doula friend when her client goes into labor and I have ambitious plans for marketing myself in January.
