So we are moving right along and really enjoying the results of everything. The lights in the kitchen are wonderful, I can finally see in here. The countertops rock and Im loving the new space they give me for things like baking and having my laptop near by with my coffee. I fel like it is my domestic headquarters now. LOL I can bake, clean, pay bills, have coffee and work from the heart of the house. I love it. We got the viga in and stained and it is wonderful. One thing I really insisted on was haveing a viga in our home. I just couldnt imagine living in New Mexico without one. A viga is basically a large column that is a tree without bark. They are beautiful and SO New Mexico. Due to the fact that our home will have more of a Northern New Mexico style , we had to use a square cut viga instead of a round one to go with that style. The round is more of a pueblo style, so it would have looked awkward and forced. So square it is, but I still love it!!!
Anyway, on to today and this week...
I am having my coffee and reviewing my plan for today until about 9am. Then we will start our day with a walk, well I will just list it...
- Walk around the neighborhood
- Begin lessons with our journal writing
- While GM does math I will read "Little Falcon" to GD
- Indep Reading
- Play a game together
- Go to the Bosque for a nature exploration afternoon
- Quiet time
- Practice Time (math work)
- Free time
- Make track molds from local animals
- Evening Rhythm
We arent doing a full lessons day today, because we do better easing into things a bit, but tomorrow will be better, with movement and the beginning of the Geo block.
I will write later to see how we did.
