It was another scattered week here at Mt. Hope Academy. Lola had a couple rough nights (the boys joined her one night) which makes for a tired mommy/teacher, I had a meeting Thursday morning and then hostessed book club that evening, Levi had standardized testing on Friday, and Saturday was crazy busy including a family trip to the swimming pool. I'm hoping for a quiet productive week this next week!
I even missed linking my last Simple Homeschool post on Wednesday! Head on over if you want to read another introduction/overview of Classical Conversations.Classical Conversations: Week 19.

I'm sure I forgot something, but c'est la vie...
[Energy] once in existence cannot be annihilated; it can only change its form.
[From a one year old boy, to a two year old boy, to a three year old boy.....]
