Where Picking Brains counts as a Science project…

In my life this week…
Lots of weather induced headaches, unfortunately. And I was sued. For something stupid. And the kicker is the company suing me actually said “you could hire an attorney, and you would win. BUT you would spend so much in the process.” Which is true. $1000 lawsuit, versus thousands in legal fees. We’ll pay the suit, thanks. {How is it that no one out there monitors these things?}
That pretty much nutshelled my week. Ho hum… 
In our homeschool this week…
We reconciled out timeline. It has been so neglected. {In case you are wondering what i’m talking about: we have a giant time line where we enter dates for EVERYTHING we’ve ever studied. It’s AWESOME!}
We continued our weather science projects. 
We watched classic movies… *sigh*
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
It’s a busy weekend, for sure. Farmer’s market. Family Easter dinner on Saturday. Can not wait! Missing my sister and the kids, for sure. Gearing up for a pretty busy week, next week. The next three weeks, actually. I guess it wasn’t awful that we had a quiet one this week. 
My favorite thing this week was…
Over the weekend we went to a community theater production of Hairspray. Being a Broadway musical lover, I’ll admit I was NERVOUS about this. I feared mid-musical yawns and cringing but the cast was amazing! It was so entertaining that poor Chw clapped so hard I feared his hands may force right through each other! 
What’s working/not working for us…
Working: our timeline. Having virtually ignored it, I forgot how great it was. 
Not Working: this weather! I want to go outside!!! 
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
I’m curious about any sort of organized groups other homeschool moms have. Maybe book clubs, science project groups, writers groups, co-ops, etc… I’m just really needing to pick some mom’s brains…

  1. I had headaches this week too. Weather you say?Ugh, so sorry about the lawsuit. That's awful. Our landlord when we were first married gave us permission to paint the dark wood paneling in her house. Then when we moved out she acted like she hadn't and threatened to sue. We had to pay $2K for it – ridiculous because the place looked SO much better afterwards.
