The Homeschool Mother’s Journal

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week…
I shared all that I could think of in yesterday’s Caffeinated Randomness post.

In our homeschool this week…
We actually hit 2 out of 5 days. We (me included) were overcoming nasty colds. I had a very persistent headache! We got math and language arts and a little reading done. I call that successful.
Oh! I was mentioned in one of Lee Binz’s posts on her The HomeScholar blog!! Never Harsh or Scary. Check it out!

Places we’re going & people we’re seeing…
Other than Sonic’s Happy Hour or a trip to Target, probably no where. We will be seeing Brian’s parents this week. This means that I have to get out the detailed cleaning list. Pray for me, ya’ll!

My favorite thing this week was…
Seeing the light bulb come on when I was doing All About Spelling with our 9 year old.
Sitting, thinking and coming up with a game plan for our family’s future in our new church and our retail business.

What’s working/not working for us…
We’ve had All About Spelling for over a year now and I dabbled with it here and there. All the while knowing the awesome benefits of it. I finally worked it with our 9 y/o and it’s working for her!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
I am so delighted to find Sue’s (The Homeschool Chick) journal and be inspired to move forward in our homeschool journey.
I’m actually weary of wallowing in the same old same old. I know well what my short-comings are. It’s time to see the good.

A photo to share…

This was a fun photo to take. It was one of those rare moments that we didn’t have all of the kids with us. It was about 11:30 p.m. Her feet were hurting her so I offered to push her in a buggy.
