In an attempt to show y'all what we do around here (which is not watch TV and eat bon bons, sadly) and also to keep myself accountable (which is the real reason) I thought I'd start posting an overview of what we've done each week. I've also heard this is helpful in noticing weak areas in our regimen.
If you're also a homeschooler, feel free to link up your own school schedule in the comments section!

In my defense of my slacker week, we've all had a cold. See? This accountability thing is working already. Next week we'll be really rigorous!
