The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week ... We are having a busy week at my parents'! They have sold their home and purchased a smaller one, so my mom and I have been so busy doing landscaping and making some purchases and moving things. My grandma was also moved into a nursing home this past Friday, so we have been there getting her settled and visiting her.

In our homeschool this week… We really aren't doing anything this week, other than reading, because of our travels to Missouri for the 4th holiday and then recovering from our travels.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… We are currently in Missouri at my parents' enjoying the 4th holiday. When we get home we are going to socialize with one of the pastors of our church and his family (his wife is Eli's reading resource teacher at school). We are also going to the movies with our Homeschool Co-op on Friday.

My favorite thing this week was… visiting my grandma at her new nursing home. It was great to see her so happy and vibrant after many years of not being.

What’s working/not working for us… It's been fun to do unscheduled learning, by taking something that just "comes along" and turning it into a lesson.

Questions/thoughts I have… If you have used Apologia Biology, would you suggest a microscope as a necessity?

Things I’m working on… more U.S. History!

Books I’m reading… Blue Like Play Dough by Tricia Goyer, The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller, Seasons of a Mother's Heart, by Sally Clarkson (reading with the moms in our Co-op Playgroup), More Faith in My Day by Emilie Barnes (my daily devotional).

School takes on many forms in the summer months. Hop on over to The Homeschool Chick to see what it looks like in other homes.

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
