The Homeschooling Mother’s Journal

I did this a few months back and want to get back to it, so here it goes! 🙂



In my life this week… was fairly busy. Joshua worked Labor Day because he had taken Friday off. I took the kids to our friends’ house in the afternoon for dinner and visiting. It was a  lot of fun, it really did feel like Sunday at my grandparent’s house! The rest of the week was pretty standard, schooling and the like. Last night we went to Mass then I stayed for the Ladies Guild meeting. I think I found my “group”!

In our homeschool this week… We plugged through and did all the assignments and worked ahead in a few things. I realized that we are 3-4 days ahead in the lesson plans. I don’t plan on taking any breaks soon or slowing down, but I like seeing that we are ahead. Karol worked on Declarative Sentences this week. I sometimes wonder about my ability to explain things to him, but he caught on right away! One of the lessons was to write three of his own Declarative Sentences. He did a great job with it!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… This week will be just schooling and hanging out at home. Joshua travels for his job this coming week, so we will be preparing for being without our Papa.  We are getting new windows on Wednesday and I look forward to that! Our weather has been wonderful down here and I can’t wait to be able to open all the windows! (most of our windows don’t have screens and if they do, the screens are torn.

My favorite thing this week was… Karol telling me why an example was not a sentence…wow, he amazed me. Then he told Joshua about them at dinner.

What’s working/not working for us…Math is a struggle. I am not sure if it is because there are so many problems on the page and that freaks Karol out or if it is because he isn’t getting it. I am leaning toward the former, but I am going to have Joshua work with him tonight to be sure.

Things I’m working on… I am working on some jumpers for the girls and an apron for myself.

I’m cooking…a crockpot of spaghetti sauce!

I’m grateful for…Joshua’s job and a faithful priest as our pastor.

I’m praying for…patience!
