Homeschool Highlights #7 The Off Week Ediiton

Me to the kids: "What did we do this week?"
Jordan shrugs shoulders. "Oh, we did the instant challenge." (I will post the solution to this weeks challenge tonight).
Nathan: "We did our independent work. And science."
We did a little history too.
We had a fun day on Tuesday. (Watched a movie and had a special dinner).
But mostly, this has been an off week for us. Just the basics.
Then Friday, I stubbed my toe, pinched my arm, and jammed my finger all in the span of 5 minutes. Then Malachi fell down the basement stairs and cut his nose and forehead on the edge of a desk and we spent a couple hours trying to get him to let us ice it with a bag of frozen corn. I then added a comfrey poultice instead. The swelling has gone down quite a bit, but he is sore. Needless to say, we had corn for dinner but while I was taking it out of the oven, I dropped the creamy corn dish and it spilled all over the oven and floor. Then as I was putting the lasagna away after dinner, I dropped it and dumped half of it on the floor. I am afraid to touch anything.
On a different note, I am organizing and rearranging again - always a good thing. I am also rethinking the whole workbox thing. We'll see what happens with that.
But, me [re]thinking usually means something has to change.
I really hope to accomplish more this week - even if it means more organizing, rearranging and restructuring (of which I have a strong desire to do right now).
In closing, I almost didn't post this because I try to remain positive and try not to dwell on the bad stuff. But just in case anyone was wondering, we have off weeks too!
