Weekly Wrap-up: A New Normal?

I'm really starting to wonder if we will ever have a normal week.  Or, is this our new normal?  Everything seems to happen so haphazardly.  Some days, we do a ton of math but very little history.  Other days are full of history, but contain very little math.  It all balances in the end, but there's no consistency.  I'm longing for some consistency!

Hubs was on a business trip this week and I spent four days at the gym preparing for our big gymnastics meet that our team is hosting.  I was in charge of decorations.  It all turned out ok and came together well.  I'm so thankful for all the help I had!  There's no way I could have pulled all that off on my own!

Since hubs returned late Thursday, he spent Friday working from home.  I'm surprised we got as much done as we did with him home.  He helped by reading with Katie while I showered.  It wasn't a full day, but it was close enough.

I'm getting very excited about putting up our Christmas tree next week!  I used to always want to get through one holiday before moving on to the next.  Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because I have a large family that I don't see much.  This is the only holiday I spend with them, so it excites me.  But, because we go out of town for Thanksgiving, we are always so rushed to put the tree up when we return.  So this year, I'm choosing to be thankful for Christmas before Thanksgiving even arrives!  The tree will be up before we go anywhere!

If I wasn't so tired, I would download some pictures to post.  But, that will have to wait.  Soon, I promise!

  1. It's hard finding a balance to get some consistency yet still be flexible. But if you're intentional about it, it all works out in the end.
    My grandmother always put up her Christmas tree before Thanksgiving so everyone could enjoy it longer, so even though we don't do that, it doesn't seem strange to me. :)

  2. We've had maybe 1 "normal" week since school started. I think I've decided that normal means pretty much nothing anymore! I'm fairly sure your girls are learning what they need to, even if it seems erratic at times.

  3. I am feeling the same way!! Three day school weeks aren't a lot of fun. But we're trying to work through it.
