Homeschool Mother's Journal ~ August 26, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
This has been a week of ups and downs. Ups: We got our schooling finished, we ate FREE breakfast at Chick-fil-A (twice) and Downs: I spent 2 days in pain (I live in pain everyday but this was on top of the normal everyday pain) so much pain that I wanted to curl up and cry!
In our homeschool this week…
As a family we finished our If the World Were a Village unit and our Picasso unit. 
Monkey focused on the letter "G", the colors green and gray and Geese, Goats and Great White Sharks. He also rowed I Am an Artist for BFIAR.
Ladybug worked on finding the missing number in math, practiced her math facts and spelling words (got 100%) on BigIQKids, wrote about friends and completed 3 more lessons at She also rowed with her brother.
Unicorn worked on her addition and multiplication facts, learned 2 more problem-solving strategies, reviewed adjectives and adverbs, did 6 lessons in Latin and wrote in her scripture journal.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
If it isn't working...try something else!
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
This month our local Chick-fil-A is having a special promotion. They are giving away free breakfasts! One entree per person per day! So...this week we went out to breakfast (twice) and will probably go again on Saturday. I had never tried their breakfasts before and was pleasantly surprised! Very Yummy! We even bumped into some friends while we were there. The kids loved having the play area to themselves too!
My favorite thing this week was…
Free breakfast! ;)
What’s working/not working for us…
Free breakfast! :0)
Questions/thoughts I have…
Thinking I better stop now since the only thing I can think about is free breakfast! ;)
Things I’m working on…
Lesson plans for next week (yes, they include 3 days of free breakfast)!

    That might be too high a price for me!!! :)

  3. Praying for you to have a better week that does include those free breakfasts!

  4. I love free things also.  We went to Chick-Fil-A yesterday and recieved two free kids meals.  I am trying to still figure out this whole homeschooling thing with two children.  However, the days are better than if she went to school -- less drama.
