School this week.

Really, the way it has worked out with the busyness and excitement of this week, is that we are pretty much just doing math.  Math is the only subject that has a certain number of lessons that we really need to get done.  Everything else can flex.  So we're flexing.  Today, the kids did algebra and I did work and then we went to 4H where one of the other moms taught us how to make the cutest little candy bouquets.  Then we went to Pizza Hut and had our homeschool group Christmas party.  It was great.   We blessed the 4H workers with one of them while we were there but we don't know what we're going to do with the other ones.  Might just eat them.  Christmas calories do not count until after the New Year.

I did learn an interesting rule today.  One of the boys walked by the mom's table, burped loudly and excused himself, but quietly, so that his mom didn't hear.  She made him come back and told him to say excuse me.  He said that he did and she said "the excuse me has to be just as loud, or louder than the burp."   That way, everyone who hears the burp, also hears the politeness that follows it.  :-P
