As I mentioned in my Wednesday update, this was my freelance week. My daughter’s quarterly homeschool report was also technically due yesterday, though I know that the district won’t see it until tomorrow. That’s good, since I’m running just a bit late with it.
All in all, it was a good second-to-last week. I’d have loved to have gotten more done, but I also understand that things tend to take longer than I think they will…
But, for now – my Week 11 progress.
