Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Back to work for the weekend. The flood forecast has reduced again (from 34' initially to 28'3") but that's still significant. We're on the border of getting wet around our building, though probably not in the building. (At 34' we would have.) My parents and our neighbors should be safe at this level. I'm sure my dad's shed (by his garden) will get wet, but it's empty and anchored. Let the water rise. We are ready.
The kids are off to ceramics in a few minutes. Somebody's alarm didn't go off, and somebody else doesn't bother to set an alarm and expects somebody #1 to be the alarm, so nobody at home is happy with each other. Oh well, they'll get over it. If they don't, I have chores for them to do, LOL.
Co-op looks like it will offer some useful (for us) classes next year. DD is going to take chemistry and sign language. Algebra II may be offered...or there may be tutoring available because it sounded like only a couple of kids need that math. DD would probably just prefer tutoring, since our curriculum is free for us to use and she's comfortable with it and not really wanting to switch to something else because the teacher says to switch. They're talking about world history, but she really already has that, so we'll have to think on that. DS is going to take physical science for sure. They're talking about doing Mystery of History for the middle schoolers...but he's not so sure about that. He was looking forward to Sonlight world history (core G and then H the next year) based on our descriptions of the books used...and obviously we already pretty much have that plus we like Sonlight. So, I wouldn't force him to do MOH...we'll just have to play that one by ear. I did talk to the science teacher and she's pretty relaxed as far as format. She does some oral review in class, but focuses on the experiments and concepts. The bookwork is up to whatever the parents want to do at home. That's a good approach for us, I think, since I have a right brainer who struggles with science, and a child that is allergic to writing
