Homeschool Mother's Journal ~ August 19, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…I am ready for the summer to be over. It has been hot and humid here. At least last night we finally got some much needed rain! Unfortunately, I had to go out during the worst of it to get our garbage can that had blown down the street...I was SOAKED!!!
In our homeschool this week…we have been plugging right along!
As a family we have studied Joseph in the Old Testament, geography (using If the World Were a Village) and Picasso.
Unicorn has been working on her addition and multiplication facts, solving word problems, identifying main ideas, reviewing grammar through literature and progressing in Latin.
Ladybug has been working on her addition facts, finding the missing number, spelling consonant-vowel-consonant words, writing about friends and learning how to choose a title and practicing her reading at!
Monkey worked on the letter "F", the number "4" and did some fun activities with Corduroy for BFIAR.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…this week a friend I used to teach with came by to visit. It was nice to have some adult conversation. Tomorrow I get to hang out with my sister again. I am so glad she moved here!
My favorite thing this week was…seeing an old friend!
What’s working/not working for us…is being finished with school by noon!
Things I’m working on…finding us a place to live (our lease is up at the end of December).
I’m grateful for…another nephew (actually a great-nephew)! My niece had a bouncing, baby boy yesterday! Both mama and baby are doing well!
A photo(s), video, link, or quote to share…my kids eating homemade rainbow pudding pops and last night's storm:


Pin It!


  1. rainbow pudding pops?  Fun!  ;)  Have a great weekend, crewmate! :)

  2. We've had several storms like that this week - but no amazingly good looking pudding pops!  I'm glad your school week went well, and that you're finishing up early.  We are NOT morning people around here - but I do love the idea of being done before lunch!

    I'm stopping by from the crew hop.  I already follow you with GFC, but noticed I hadn't liked your FB page yet.  I do now!  I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Those pudding pops look yummy and pretty. Thanks for joining the blog hop and sharing about it.
