Last school day before vacation.  Spence did his drums, math, spelling, printing, reading, live streaming and some more laundry.  I worked and cleaned the kitchen.  For supper we made glass noodles with teriyaki chicken for Spence and teriyaki tofu for me.

Now Spence will chill for the rest of the night and I'm going to go back to work for a bit and then study.

Yesterday was busy - I headed off early to meet with a client.  Spence got to sleep in and do school in the afternoon - math, drums, printing, reading, deciding on a topic for his next essay.  Spence also woke up with an earache and was working on getting rid of that for most of the day.

When I got home, we had dinner - quesadillas and nachos and then I headed off for another board meeting.  At the end we had a contractor picked out and a roof colour, but I told them I can't do any more meetings until I come back because I'm swamped with work stuff - they want another meeting before I leave....ack!

Today is another day like yesterday-work and school.  James is taking Spence out tonight and they are prepping for their trip to Seattle.  I'm skipping slo-pitch to continue to catch up on work....busy, busy last few days before vacations begin.

We had a pretty busy day today.  Spence slept over at Jacob's last night and was home in time for our dental appointment.

Once we were done that, we drove home and then he did his driving practice, we planned out the part of September that I'm away, he went through some of his math texts to see what he was taking to his dad's, he practiced his printing, drums and then did some live streaming.

We headed off to meet James for a planning meeting at Kinjo's and went through travel plans, school plans, etc.

I headed off to take Karma to her grad class and she did well and then stopped off to get the Dyson fan I had found on kijiji for Spencer's room.  Once home, Spence showed me what his dad bought him tonight - two very cool t-shirts and some reading material for the plane.

Today was the teen homeschool paintball day - we had chosen Capture the Flag in Cochrane because we had some coupons we had to use....the kids had a good time, but we've all decided that Bragg Creek is the better paint ball place for us.

Once we got home, the boys (Jacob, Gene and Spence) headed off to hang out and I headed off to get groceries and Karma.

Sunday we did chores, relaxed and watched some TV/played video games for Spence.

Today we have a paintball day out in Cochrane with the homeschool teen group.
