Homeschool Mothers Journal Summer Edition Weekly Review 7/30

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

      In my life this week…
      My Birthday was Monday.  To celebrate we went out to eat for supper. My Hubby bought me a cheesecake sampler instead of a traditional cake.

      I also did some cleaning  and miscellaneous work around the house.
      I had the opportunity to take a couple short shopping trips this week. Tried to find some clothes for my self, was partially successful.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Our Church had Vacation Bible School this week, so that occupied the morning all week. 

The rest of the week we did our normal summer activities.  Piano lessons and library program. The library program this week was a magician who wove a story into his tricks.  

Questions/thoughts I have…
Determining what curriculum items we can afford right now and which ones I need to put on the back burner for a while.

How to make assignments for my 10 year old daughter to challenge her, yet not overwhelm her.  How to help her work to her ability and grade level. 

Things I’m working on…
During the month of August we are going to spend a week concentrating on 4 different topics.  

I spent time this week preparing for the first and third weeks of August.  We are going to concentrate on state history and culture the first week.  I haven't decided between two different topics for the third week, but started pulling resources together for both topics. We will also begin Bible Study and finish up the supplemental math books from last year this week.

Helped Daughter learn to latch hook.  She picked it up quickly and seems to be enjoying it. 

I’m reading…
A hodge podge of things.  Some magazines before I toss them. Skimming several books about blogging and HTML coding.

I’m grateful for…
Again this week our Air conditioning.  It has continued to be very hot.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

These are pics from the library program.  The magician let them try to spin the plates after the program was over.  I had to post one of each of them, otherwise the other would have been jealous.

  1. A cheesecake sampler - that is way better than cake. What a great guy!!

    Spinning plates make me laugh - isn't that what we moms do all the time?! :)
