|I never get tired of watching him sleep. Silly goose.|
|Blocks and magnets are big lately.|
Monday was crazy busy. We did bookwork in the morning and in the afternoon we went to the Schoenstatt Girls' Group. We've never been before but I've heard good things. The Schoenstatt Sisters are a religious organization originally from Germany. Felicity and Elizabeth are in the youngest group, Mary's Little Crowns and Cecilia is in the group just above that, the Lilies. They pray together, go to adoration and then study Scripture, the rosary, etc. The girls enjoyed it and it definitely looks worth trying it for the year and seeing how it goes. Additionally, the groups meeting when we go are all Catholic homeschoolers, so the girls get to meet and spend time with other Catholic homeschooling girls their age!
|Our parish dedicated a new statue of St. Michael, a favorite of our pastor who is the diocese exorcist.|
|Afterwards, he consecrated the parishioners to the protection of St. Michael!|

We did more book work and Cecilia, quite impressively, finished all her bookwork for the entire week! In the afternoon we had swimming lessons. Felicity especially is doing really well with swimming but Cecilia and Elizabeth are both so much more independent in the water. Teresa loves it but she still doesn't like to get her face wet. She can, she just doesn't like to. :)
|Mr. Thomas became greatly in need of a haircut.|
|Definitely better. :)|
I worked with Felicity and Elizabeth on their bookwork and continued Teresa's reading lessons with her. She completed lesson 25, which puts us a quarter of the way through the book.
|Impressive how that Maryland judicial system works.|
|Felicity does her script handwriting. I love how those spreadsheets keep the girls informed of what they should do and how often they just jump in and do it even before I know they are working.|
Thursday, October 8th
Felicity and Elizabeth finished their bookwork for the week.
|Teresa has mastered building the rocket by herself.|
|I woke in the morning to find Teresa asleep on the floor of our room. She does this most nights. She says she wants to sleep by me.|
|I was pretty tired. You see all those light blue and red lines during my sleep... those were all the times I was up. And it adds up.|
