A Homeschooling Mother’s Journal

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
In my life this week…
Was a nice week. We watched a friend’s son two times this week, so she could go to the Chiro. She visited before and after and we talked quite a bit. She is an Air Force wife and a transplant to South Georgia, as are we, so we have that in common. She is also interested in starting a co-op too, and I am excited about that.
In our homeschool this week…
We pulled out the math book again and guess who figured out odd and even numbers? Yep, Karol. I think the key to it was, first not pushing the issue but I also wrote down odd and even numbers on two sheets of paper and hung them up on the wall. He was able to look at those during meal time and when doing things at the table, so it sunk in a bit.
We also worked on months and days of the week this week. Karol and Margaret are both very interested in “Days that Papa goes to work”, so we talked about those days a bit and spent a lot of time talking about Sunday and what we do on Sundays.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
This past week was full of visiting and seeing people. This coming week starts Lent, so on Wednesday, we will be attending Mass and receiving our ashes. I hope to be able to attend stations of the cross too this week.
My favorite thing this week was…
Honestly? Getting the vacuum back from the repair shop. We have all hardwood, with some tile thrown in, but I vacuumed like a fool today!

What’s working/not working for us…
The not rushing things, getting a little bit done each day, taking random moments and making them teaching moments.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
I am thankful that my husband and I are on the same page about homeschooling and have been since the first moment we talked about it (before being engaged).

Notice her big fish in the background! Also, notice her expression “Take the darn picture”.
