Today I finished lesson planning for biology! We will get through all 39 chapters if my daughter stays on top of it. That’s with a supplemental book and co-op’s biology class to boot. It feels good to have the planning done. Now it just needs to go on the assignment pages and into the grade book.
Today was also the day to pick up the fair projects, so that’s over for a year. My middle has already completed a project for next year’s fair, and we have a crochet project picked out and ready to start. I want her to start early as it may take some prodding to get it completed, even with a year to do it. It’s a wrap style sweater, and she likes the yarn I had purchased on sale earlier to make a sweater for her so she’s going to use it to make her own. I love it when things work out that way.
My son’s scrap afghan is going in spurts. A lady at church asked me to teach her to crochet and that has been prodding me to work on the squares. My oldest daughter’s skirt (sewing) is on hold. I became frustrated with it and am not ready to pick it back up just yet. I also need to get her back on the machine. She wants to learn how to sew, and right now is planning to make her own wedding dress when the day comes (she’s only a high school sophomore). There’s time for her to get up to that level if I don’t drop the ball. Of course, she has a voice and can ask for sewing lessons as well.
I’m still not where I want to be in getting things accomplished, but a summer cold didn’t help, and frankly I wouldn’t be where I wanted to be without the cold. I suppose it’s better to aim high and only get half way there than to not aim at all.
