It was a week! Lol. That is about all I can say. Just a basic little week around here, with some good moments as well. Valentine’s Day, pulling Wyatt on a sled through the woods, planning his birthday (he will be 7 in two weeks! How is that possible!), his wheelchair evaluation and ordering, and a trip to the book store too. I have also been thinking about next year and our plans for school; we had a discussion about possibly sending him back but he is doing well here, and after his visit to his PMR doctor we decided to keep on homeschooling. She thinks and agrees he is thriving in the homeschool environment, and she supports us. We also talked about how it keeps his schedule flexible for appointments and therapies, which are also a huge part of our week. I am hoping that next year we will have more opportunities to socialize with other children and I will be looking into that as well. Having made the decision to keep on homeschooling, I started researching curriculum. I think I am going to change things up next year, and pick bits and pieces from different curriculum out there, and even write my own for literary arts next year. I want it to be literature based (obvioulsy) but includes lots of art and music and take us down lots of side trails, which you know we love. So, I guess it was a basic week but one with lots of big decisions being made as well!
Read Last Week:
I didn’t get as much time to read last week but when I did get the chance I really enjoyed this cozy by Mia Manansala! I am not quite finished yet but I will be soon.
Reading This Week:
I have a few contenders! I am not sure which will pique my interest the most so we will just have to see. These are the four staring at me from my shelf..
Any thoughts on these?

Watching and Listening:
All Creatures Great and Small and Around the World in 80 Days. We finished up Mr. and Mrs. Murder, and moved on to Agatha Raisin’s newest season, and we are giving Loch Ness a try too.
Saturday movie night and another Studio Ghibli! This week we watched When Marnie was There, and this one is my favorite so far! I saw in the credits that it is based on a book, so I will see if I can get the book too. In other Studio Ghibli news I saw that a Studio Ghibli theme park is opening in Japan! How cool would that be to visit? It is going to be very influenced by the nature and pastoral scenes from the movies, with more emphasis on natural spaces and trails – sounds perfect to me!
And our wake up songs! This week we listened to Start Me Up by the Rolling Stones, Sunshine on my Shoulders by John Denver, Fire and Rain by James Taylor, Kitty by The President of the United States, and Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana.
And that is it from around here! What is going on in your neighborhood?
