Our Week Ahead ~ Monday 14 November 2016 (Week 33 of 35. YAY!)

It's very satisfying to look at our proposed schedule for learning and to see just 2 weeks left, after this one, before we start wrapping up our learning year.
Here is where the roles reverse and the children start really 'encouraging' me to get their academic learning work load cleared so they can shift gears and enjoy the freedom of becoming totally delight-led in their activities.  Not sure about other homes, but once our history/literature schedule is wrapped up things seem to go from a semi-structured educating day into ones filled with projects, crafts, hours of online study, and piles of books, and audiobooks, taking over our home.  So good!
