The Homeschool Mother's Journal - January 9-13, 2012

On the coast

In my life this week…
Monday and Tuesday started off with a big cleaning party! My parents flew in Tuesday afternoon from Wisconsin for a visit. The kids are enjoying having them here.

In our homeschool this week…
I kept school work on the docket. My goal is to get one week's worth of work done in two weeks.

Chantry is now reading his Read And Learn Bible to himself and coming and giving me narrations. I am trying to push him toward more independent reading. We will see how it goes.

Since Shade took two days off from work, he and Caleb sat down and got a couple of labs done for biology. Yeah!

Even though we didn't as much schooling, Caleb brought out the World War II: D-Day and the Providence of God DVDs out and soon everyone was engrossed in watching them.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We have stayed pretty close to home for the first couple of days. Friday we headed to Lincoln City to go look at the beach, emphasis on look. This has to be the second time since I've lived out here that I've been there and haven't been blown away or frozen stiff. My real reason for going was to shop at the outlet mall. I had been saving up some money to get Caleb some clothes he needed. Thankfully, there were some great sales going on.

My favorite thing this week was…
My parents visit!

What’s working/not working for us…
Everything, besides Poetry and Bible Memory seem to be working well. I'm not stressing about the Poetry and Bible Memory since this isn't the week to try to fix it.

Things I’m working on…
Right now I'm not working on too much. I'm just enjoying time with my parents.

I’m reading…

I’m grateful for…
My parent's visit.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

I was able to reorganize two of my bookshelves and they look so much better.

  1. Sounds like a good week. I like how you had your goal in mind--one week of school in two--from the outset. It always helps me so much if I can/will realize what's REALLY going to happen, as opposed to what I hope or think will happen. (I have a problem with unrealistic expectations.)

  2. Wow! Those shelves look GREAT! I'm slowly working on mine! I have books in piles all over my coffee table as I write this...and more (for giveaway) on a chair nearby). Time to declutter, organize and remind myself what I have before making plans for next year!

  3. Love your family photo:) Looks like a great week visiting with family. Your bookshelves look awesome...I definitely need to work on mine!
