3. 1st place for poetry writing.4. Caleb's colored pencil.
5. The finished quilt. 6. New concept in math--out come the blocks!
7. Yeah! Two books down. 8. New review for High School Prep Genius.

I should probably divide this into two posts, but for the sake of time I am including my last two weeks into one. That last time I posted a Homeschool Mother's Journal we were about to head to the West Coast Student Convention. Thankfully, Destini finished her quilt right before we had to turn it in. So the results for the kids were as follows:

  • Poetry Recitation - 1st
  • Dramatic Signing Male: 3rd
  • Puppet Show (w/ Destini) - 1st
  • Drawing Colored Pencil - 1st
  • Essay Writing - 3rd

In my life this week…
So after that week we were totally wiped out. There were several mornings I was lazy and laid around reading. Then was the big task of getting the laundry and ironing under control all the while keeping up with our regular schedule. We also had to deal with an unexpected need of 4 new tires for our car. It seems sometimes when it rains, it pours.
In our homeschool this week…
Though we did implement everything back into out schedule I did get my act going enough to get math going. I think Chantry did the most work this week since I have to watch over him more and the other two kind of slipped through the cracks. But...we did finish two books, Exploring Creation With Zoology 3 and Burgess Animal Book for Children.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Baseball, piano lessons.
I attended a informational homeschool event where everyone in the area that has something to offer to homeschoolers show off their speciality, plus it was fun seeing other homeschool friends and chatting.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
I loved this article that Mystie from Simply Convivial on her goals for the upcoming school year. A great read!
My favorite thing this week was…
Being lazy and reading and sneaking off one of my favorite haunts, Craft Warehouse. They were having a flat fold sale. I can't pass up buying $12-$13 dollar a yard fabric for $4 a yard!
Things I’m working on…
I'm reading...and read...
I’m cooking…
Not applicable!
I’m grateful for…
I’m praying for…
We have some issues going on right now that we are in desperate need of an answer from God. Ultimately, I'm praying that God gives us the strength to make it through this time and to keep the right spirit.
