The Homeschooler's Mother's Journal - October 10-14, 2011

Look at that tongue!
In my life this week…
I felt like I personally had a very non-productive week. I had several kids with the sniffles, a couple of sleepless nights, too many late nights, and I didn't get a thing done around the house (except killing ants which decided to come visit). I had a whole day that I kept having a very sensitive tooth which had me worried for awhile. I decided to poke around in there and found a popcorn kernel had got jammed in there. Thankfully, my tooth is feeling fine!
In our homeschool this week…
I personally might have been unproductive, but we had a great week in school.

I finished reading aloud The Wonder Book for Boys and Girls by Nathaniel Hawthorne to Destini and Chantry. This was left over from our free reading from last year. We also have Tanglewood Tales to read, but I am going to take a break from mythology and read from English Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs.

Caleb is diligently working hard. I am trying to get better on checking his list daily to see what he has finished. It seems like when I ignore his list that certain things always are left undone.

Delani is enjoying doing her "chart" and really enjoys saying the nursery rhyme of the week.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Destini had piano lessons this week and Caleb had his writing class. After his class all the men in the family went to a high school football game and that left us girls to go do a little Goodwill and Walmart shopping.

My favorite thing this week was…
Spending time with my family!

What’s working/not working for us…
Dare I say it again...SCIENCE. In fact, I am now putting my own Biology class together using the Biology 101 DVDs as the core. I am waiting for some books to arrive in the mail and hopefully I will be able to get it all planned out so we can start back up next week.

I haven't done another nature walk yet. It has turned cold and rainy--something I just don't enjoy.

Things I’m working on…
Cleaning my house!!!

I’m reading…

I am enjoying One Thousand Gifts, but I'm not sure about the other two. I have started both of them, but they haven't really grabbed me yet.
I’m cooking…
Pumpkin pancakes!

  1. I hope you can find some place that at least "feels outdoorsy" for you to relax and enjoy God's creation. Sorry you have cold and rain- makes me feel yucky!
