Homeschool Mothers Journal Summer Edition Weekly Review 7/8

     In my life this week…
     I dug out a craft project I had started a while ago and did some work on it. Can't go in to details at this point as it might be a gift.

I am inspired by…
I am not sure if it is panic or inspiration, but I looked at the calendar for July and August and saw I have 3 weeks to get things in order to start school the first week in August.  We are going to do some theme weeks to begin with so I still have a little time to get our new curriculum materials yet. Right? 

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We went to two Make it Take it Around the World craft events at Michaels this week. 
We visited the library both for books and the program. The program was a puppet show based on the Cinderella story from France.
Both kiddos had piano lessons.
Also stopped at the Teacher Store to get some things laminated, but realized I could spend a lot of money there.  Just on things that look fun, not that we need most of them, either.

My favorite thing this week was…
Hubby's Birthday was Wednesday

Questions/thoughts I have…
We watched the Shuttle launch this morning and I realized I watched another historic launch also... the first.  When they said it was 30 years ago, it made me feel old. 

Things I’m working on…
Still organizing. 
Making curriculum choices.  There are just too many things to choose from! 

I’m reading…
I finished The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma.  Read the introduction to Saving Leonardo. This looks to be an intense read.

I’m cooking…
Saturday I made fajitas. 

Monday hubby and I made donuts.  I bought a donut pan last week and tried it out rather than making a donut run.  We also enjoyed Chicken Cesaer salad.

Wednesday we had BBQ Pork.  I didn't really cook it, as it was premade but I did have to heat it in the oven. Does that count? The kiddos helped me make Birthday cake.

I didn't have to do a whole lot of cooking as Hubby quantity grilled over the weekend. Not only does it save heating up the house each evening, it is also faster to get a meal ready at supper time.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
These are the donuts we made on Monday. Chocolate for my and Cinnamon  Sugar for Hubby.
