Long week, but we're settling into the schedule again and even managed to start school on time two days this week. Last week was NOT like that.
School work is same ol', same ol'. I'm thinking we need some sort of field trip soon, but those are hard to decide upon in January--I am not hiking around the zoo in freezing weather.
