30 January 2017

Our Week Ahead ~ 30 Jan 2017 (Still in ramp up mode & my current book basket)

For those who like schedule creating, I do ;) , I'm making some good inroads into getting this years schedule streamlined into a working format.
A schedule is an excellent tool for me to deviate from and swing back too; and, in the high schooling years it sure helps me to discuss with the children, and allocate, what they need to consider working on next.  Jay likes to have things scheduled in for him otherwise books that I'd like to him a good 'try' at would just be ignored for 100% non-fiction, and then he feels he's missed out on an opportunity to enjoy a diversity of reads like
Three Men in a Boat ~ Jerome (humour),
Fahrenheit 451 ~ Bradbury (Utopian) ,
Short Stories by Saki ,
Bleak House ~ Dickens (Brit Lit) , and etc.

Our week ahead, starting 30 January 2017
