Year 5 :: Week 1

I am going to start sharing weekly reports on our homeschooling. I am not sure how consistent I will be, but I will do my best!
I do enjoy reading other homeschool blogs that share their weekly reports, and I thought it would be nice for others to see what we are up to as well.
We are doing a slow start, so not all subjects were covered this week.

    Sounds like you are in full swing :) I had hopes of doing the same, starting next week but it would appear we are pushing it until the week after that! Nice to see what you're up to, I too enjoy seeing what other homeschoolers are doing... gives me some great things to try as well!
