Homeschool Mothers Journal Summer Edition Weekly Review 7/23

      In my life this week…

      We are just trying to stay cool.  We have had 6 days with temps over 100 this week and the heat index has been at least 115.

In our homeschool this week…

Daughter read Sarah Plain and Tall.  She is trying out one of the new Literature Note Sets from  "In The Hands of a Child."

We have also done some reading aloud.

We've talked a little about hurricanes as the kiddos have been interested in severe weather.

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

We did art at Michael. Piano lessons continued.

Also went to the library.  This weeks summer reading program activity was Giant Games.  We got to play large size versions of checkers, dominoes, and tic tac toe.  Also large-poster board size pieces-memory, Candy Land which the player could walk through and a version of Yahtzee will large inflatable dice.  I think the kids had more fun tossing the dice around than playing Yahtzee!

My favorite thing this week was…

Going out for concretes.  Concretes are super thick ice cream.  

Things I’m working on…
I am making plans for our one week intensive Missouri study. I need to write down my ideas for this, right now they are just gelling in my head.

I am also planning our Grammar and Math camp for later in August.

Thinking about ideas for blog posts.

I’m reading…

Cinderella Ate My Daughter
    I'm glad I checked it out from the library and didn't buy it.  I am not impressed. 

No One Cares What You Had For Lunch 100 Ideas for writing on your Blog  
         It's okay, I just don't see myself using many of them.

I’m cooking…

Toasted Ravioli
Orange Chicken
Can't remember what else we had!

Tried to do easy foods that didn't take much cooking to avoid heating up the house.

Thanks to Sue at the Homeschool Chick for hosting Homeschool Mothers Journal.
