Since I only did a wrap-up for Kayleigh last week, I was planning on doing one for Mackenzie this week. The weekend got busy and I didn't get to it. I haven't even taken the pictures off of my camera in over a week. I'm feeling daunted by the amount of editing that I have in my future. Oh my!
Since Mackenzie's schedule for the year was blasted by the Winter
I'm torn about grammar. We just started Growing With Grammar a few months ago, when Susan Wise Bauer crushed my dreams and decided not to publish Advanced Language Lessons. Ugh! Those first 15 weeks she let us all use were wonderful. To tease us with the first 15 weeks and then snatch it away was too, too cruel. I'm leaning on continuing on with it through the summer, so she can be on grade level for our new school year.
We had a busy week of outside activities. A field trip to Ripley's Believe It or Not. There are photos but they are on my friend's camera and I'm awaiting their arrival to my inbox. She's remodeling three bathrooms so she's busy. But take my word that we had fun.
Friday, we headed out to Busch Gardens. It was a last minute trip and it was a totally awesome and chill day. Mackenzie even took Kayleigh on as many rides as she wanted. For once Elmo Land wasn't packed with strollers.

The new Winter
Hardy har har har!! They are offering to grade your student's written work. Bwaaa haaa haaa haaa! Have they read any of their own publications??? Ever??? Clearly not based on the amount of errors you run across in them. I'm going to go more in detail with the ludicrousness of this "service" at a later date. Please know it will include plenty of examples of their own work including one of their very own language arts programs. It's going to be EPIC!!!
