Homeschool Mother's Journal ~ Week 12

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…I have been crazy busy! And things aren't looking to slow down until Sunday evening. I hope I make it through with out a Fibromyalgia flair up!
In our homeschool this week…we have been finishing up our last week of our school year. With the exception of a couple units that Unicorn needs to finish we will be starting our new year/curriculum on Monday!
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Saturday we went to Grandma's house to celebrate Easter and Monkey's 3rd Birthday (click here to read more about Monkey)! Tuesday we went to the park to met up with our homeschool group. 
My favorite thing this week was…getting everything finished for our new school year and my completing my review on The Curiosity Files - Red Tides for the TOS Review Crew tryouts!
What’s working/not working for us…I think I (finally) figured out a routine for us. I guess we will find out over the next month or so if it will work!
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…I am thinking that since this is our last week of our current school year that this will be my last week to do a weekly wrap-up. I am going to use The Homeschool Mother's Journal as a replacement! :)

  8. OMG, I am in LOVE with your calendar area! I wish I could blow the picture up and examine it!! Where did you get that clear plastic bin? I <3 it!! I've been dabating starting on next years curriculum since we're done in everything but math... I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking about going ahead to do this!!

    Thanks Desi! I got the clear organizing unit from Target! Also, I move the
    kids up when they are point holding them back! I also, stop or
    slow down when they are struggling...that is the beauty of homeschooling!

    favorite pastimes! :)

  15. You look ultra organized and I'm jealous!

    Congrats on your last week!

  16. I purchased some bins like this from the Container Store. Yours may be a better bargain though. It is so nice to have a place where your kids can find their books and supplies.
