The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
We had BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL weather. We did a lot of outdoor activities, park, bikes, sand piles, and just general running around the yard. We stayed home all week, but we didn’t need to go anywhere as we have the park in our backyard and the driveway to run around and ride bikes on. Oh, we mustn’t forget the tree they love to climb.
Yesterday Joshua and I went out to our parish to attend a meeting about planning the future of our little country parish. I am very excited about the future there!  When convent, adoration chapel, choir loft and a few other awesome things are discussed as things wanted in the future, heck yeah, we have found home!
In our homeschool this week…
Oh, let’s see here, we put the math book away for the week. We did a lot of science this week. Bugs, flowers, Space Shuttle launches, and home made ricotta cheese make for excellent science lessons. I also added to our family library with two new books for Karol. Oh my, he loves reading books and sat on the couch, reading to himself, for almost an hour. I also found a floor puzzle of the United States. Man, is that thing cool. I loved watching the kids figure out how to put the pieces together.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We have a birthday party this weekend, woohoo! Next week we are having a friend over to play. Oh, we are going fishing on Sunday!
My favorite thing this week was…
Watching Karol and Margaret share and ride the bike on the driveway. It is even better when Karol rides with his eyes closed! Oh, yes and Margaret picking tall blades of grass for me and all our visitors.
What’s working/not working for us…
Working for us is being much more laid back and not pushing so much. Karol is just five, he doesn’t need to know everything all at once, right?
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
Have I mentioned that with homeschooling, there is no rushing around in the morning. Ahhh.
A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
