It's time for The Homeschool Mother's Journal. Just click on the name to go to this great meme.

In my Life this Week: We are getting ready to go to the beach.  Therefore, I posted this picture here because this is what we're busy doing:  packing, organizing, laundry, bringing the dog to the kennels, etc.  Our minds are thinking of the coming warm breezes and sunshine.

In Our Homeschool Week: We did a smaller amount of homeschooling due to our responsibilities for packing and organizing.

Places We're Going/People We're Seeing: Our homeschool co-op classes and a meeting for teachers/moms for planning purposes.

My Favorite Thing this Week: Getting an important phone call regarding an idea I have.

What's Working/Not Working for Us: We need some additional help in determining when to turn whole number into fractions when we add, subtract, multiply, and divide certain math problems.  I have to remember to ask dh or does anyone here know?  I also thought I could do Science with my preschooler but it will have to wait a little longer.

Homeschool Questions/Thoughts I have:  Do you do any homeschooling when you go on vacations?
