Homeschool Mothers Journal Summer Edition Weekly Review 6/10

      In my life this week…

I have been hard at work cleaning and organizing the basement.  It seems that  
is the place where everything gets dumped when I don't want to deal with it or don't have time.   I have also done some cleaning I just don't get to during the school year.
I've done some reading.  Read a couple magazines, a book or two.

In our homeschool this week…

We haven't had school this week as both of my children are visiting my parents out of state.   I understand they are having fun doing lots of different things and keeping up with their summer reading. I miss them, but have enjoyed the quiet and completing some tasks.

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

I went to a used curriculum sale on Wednesday and found several great supplemental items for our study with Story of the World in the fall and an art curriculum that we have been wanting for a year.
My hubby and I ate out a couple times this week as it was too hot to cook or we were out doing things at supper time.

What’s working/not working for us…

I went to several different stores looking for a new purse and haven't found one.

Things I’m working on…

Planning for next year.  I have started to write things down so I think I know what I need to look for or buy.  I went through my shelves to see what I have that will fill areas of study, especially for my 7 year old. 

My biggest question right now is what to use for grammar for my 10 year old.

I’m reading…

Bless This Mouse by Lois Lowry    Actually I finished it.
I’m cooking…

Not much, it has been too hot and humid to cook!

Thanks to Sue at the Homeschool Chick for hosting Homeschool Mothers' Journal !

  1. How lovely that your your children are spending time with family and your and your husband can have some time together.
    Are you classical homeschoolers? CM? Maybe I could help with some Grammar ideas.
