I've been planning out the next year and a half, and almost all my books are here, except for History. Well, and the "Animal Encyclopedia" that was mislabled: the sticker says it's an Animal Encyclopedia, but the title says "The Oswego Fugues" and it's strange poetry inside. So we'll have to see about sending that one back and getting the right one. But otherwise, getting all these books in the mail is very exciting!
I sat down and did some planning. I've got things sketched out for the next 6 weeks or so. I don't want to plan out too far in advance yet, because I want to make sure the little planning form I made up is going to work for me before I get crazy with the planning. It's exciting! I'm really looking forward to doing this next week, and seeing how things go. We're picking up the pace a little bit, and will continue to do so over the next couple months. The plan is to be at a full schedule in September.
Raven was busy too this week: he did a couple of big things. One was his first hunk of banana, which he loved. And so of course he made a slimy mess out of it. He also sat up for 5 seconds, unassisted. And he signed "milk" for the first time, clear as day. I love baby sign language!
