The Homeschool Mothers Journal Week 4

The Homeschool Mother's Journallegos

Recently I saw a blog post from a Homeschool mom that I follow.  Sam from The Kelley Eight was excited to start a journaling program.  I have always wanted to journal but just felt overwhelmed with starting from scratch.

Thanks to the Homeschool Chick and The Kelley Eight I will now be journaling this fantastically crazy journey we are on.  I am thrilled, excited and thankful!

Week #4:

In my life this week…

Our van died this week, no so good since we are still making payments, yuck.  I went to a wine ‘n paint class with my mom, sister, aunt and cousins, we had a great time, so relaxing.

In our homeschool this week…

Preston is working on Time4learning and loving it.  Oliver started skip counting on his own, I was amazed.  He came up to me and did 1, 3, 5, 7,9 then he followed that with 2,4,6,8.  I have not even started with him formally only Preston.  I was thrilled.  I printed up some of these for him to have for his school desk.  Thanks Homeschool Creations!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

Without a car we stayed in most of the week.  Preston and I did have a date to see Imagination Movers we took the light rail to downtown.

We also made it to the playground several times which is always great.

My favorite thing this week was…

The entire family sat down and each colored a page for a mini-book about Spring.  That was a fun, creative time.

We are reading Heidi and the book we are using is full of colorful pictures, we are enjoying it.  There is nothing like shutting out everything, reading and snuggling.

What’s working/not working for us…

Not working – staying home so much.  We love to be out, although I am trying to use this time to organize and spring clean, so that has been good.  I look forward to Spring field trips!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

Time to start thinking about curriculum for next year.  I just got the Alpha Omega catalog in the mail yesterday.  Time to start perusing homeschool forums and researching.  I like Sonlight but want to explore all options.

Sorry to hear about your van. I hope its nothing too pricey.

That is awesome that your son started skip counting on his own! Yay!

Mary says:

Sorry about your van, that stinks!

As for curriculum, I am always thinking about the next year – I just can’t help myself.

Sorry to hear about your van. Unexpected expenses are never a good thing! We have used Time4Learning in the past and my daughter loved it, too. It really is a nice break from the book work. Visiting from THMJ. Welcome!

We used Sonlight this year too and it has gone well. I wanted to study American History and we have but next year I’m considering moving to MFW for ancient history and K. Anyway great that we have so many options. It is a blessing. We’ve been home a lot this week too and I have to keep reminding myself it is not always this way. 🙂
have a blessed weekend.
