Upcoming school week

Another school week is coming up (all to quickly after a very busy weekend I might add)! It's Sunday night, the boys are just getting ready for bed and I'm pulling school together; fortunately all of the lessons for the whole week, let alone all of Monday, don't need to be completed tonight. Ideally, I would have had the week finished by now, but like I've mentioned a busy weekend.

We'll be continuing our snow themed books by reading "Stopping By The Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost. It's a wonderful poem and the illustrations in the book are great as well. Here's the poem:

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
