Monday marked the beginning of our new school year. Sunday evening I couldn't sleep. It wasn't because I was excited, but rather because I was nervous that I had forgotten something or didn't have my Tapestry teacher's notes straight in my head. I gave up and got out of bed and started going over my plan, looking through my notes. Then Pete heard me up, saw my insomnia induced tears and convinced me to take melatonin. So I did and I slept great- for 5 hours. Our first day started with me dragging and trying to hide the fact that my head was pounding. Then Maddie added her stomach sickness to the fun, Silas spit up and pooped everywhere, and I just kept going, convinced that I was not giving up on our day. Pete offered to bring home dinner and I thanked him and so no because I couldn't bear the thought of not being able to at least pull a simple dinner together. The week got better from there. Here's a little summary from Peter about where our Tapestry of Grace studies took us this week-
"We started with a lot of review of the last 2 weeks of year 1. We learned a lot more about the different barbarian nations, the Huns, Goths, and farther north, the Angles and Saxons. We also learned about early Britain and King Arthur. During the reign of King Arthur's uncle, Stonehenge was believed to have been set up by Merlin the Magician. The early Britons believed this to be true, even though Stonehenge was probably set up before that."
Also, here are some pictures from our week-
