Weekly Wrapup

The kids did schoolwork Monday-Thursday this week. It was the usual relaxed/classical homeschooling. We're doing ancient Greece in history, so we've been reading a lot of books about ancient Greece (both fiction and non) from the library and also watching Xena the Warrior Princess on DVD (ahhh, edutainment). We took James to speech at the school on Monday and Friday morning. The kids had their art class Monday afternoon and P.E. at the Y on Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday night, doula Chris Herrera and I got to speak to a childbirth class about our doula group and what doulas are and do. I also did a little bit of work on this week. Those were my only real work things (aside from talking to doulas from the group about different things almost every day).

The kids got today off homeschooling because after leaving the Y today, I decided that missing my friends in Baltimore was more than I could bear, checked with my husband, then packed up the kids and headed to MD for the weekend. I don't have any doula clients due 'till the end of March, so I should be safe.

After a six hour drive, we arrived at my friend Allison's house, where I picked up friend Melissa's kids and went over to Melissa's house. My kids spent the last couple of hours playing with hers' and now I'm trying to get everyone to go to bed.

My big work goal for this weekend is to finish re-reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, write my book report about it and get it emailed to by BirthWorks reviewer. We'll see how much I actually manage to do while hanging out down here in Bmore.
