  1. Thanks so much for sharing! I hope you post all weeks on here and I am going to share your site with my other CC families!

  2. This is a great site to share with my CC Community. I'm having a “How to do CC at home” Moms Night OUt. I will definitely be pushing your blog, totally awesome. Thanks for sharing. I was in Williamsburg a few days ago, maybe we saw each other. We did the RevQuest game. It was a lot of fun.

  3. Nancy,

    My kids are so much easier to manage if they’re kept busy. Downtime usually turns into whining for screen time. I won’t stress if we don’t get to all of it as long as I feel like they’re grasping the material. And we live near Baltimore and love free food 😉

  4. How do you do all this?  Seriously – you are amazing!  I am a CC mom and would love to follow what you do … so wherever you can, please continue posting your activities with your links so I can shamelessly steal from you!  If I live anywhere nearby you, I promise to show up on your doorstep with a cooked dinner as a thank you!  🙂

  5. You did a fantastic job at organizing your week 1.  Will share the rest of your weeks as well? 🙂
