Weekly Report Week 4: 1/31/2011-2/4/2011
We got in a couple of days of lessons this week on Monday and Tuesday. Called a snow day on Wednesday-Friday. Kinda wish I hadn't, but there it is. I didn't have a chance to run the errands for Friday's project day, was glad to have Wednesday off with friends who had no power at home, and Thursdays are generally off. Started Circle Time late on Monday and Tuesday, so didn't do full Circle Time either day.
