Sunday night. Ed has very sweetly taken the kids off to trunk or treat with friends so that I will have a little peaceful time to plan for co-op tomorrow. And this is how I abuse his kindness! Actually, I've made good progress -- the next seven weeks of the research paper project are roughly mapped out. The first six chapters of Odysseus are read, annotated, and ready to discuss. I have a reasonably clear idea of what I'll do with Katie's class for poetry. I have not read the history. Or looked at the geography. Or graded the papers (which, at this point, are just going to have to wait until next week. oh well.) Back to work!
