My Homeschool Week

It is time for The Homeschool Mother's Journal summer edition.  Just click on this name to join in.

In my Life this Week: We were able to visit some very good friends while us two moms went to a sewing class together.  It was a very enjoyable time.  We made simple pillow cases.  We were also able to go to the pool a couple of times while my girls had swim team practice.  I just watch my four year old play in the two feet while the girls are at practice.  My high schoolers first day of swim practice didn't go so good because she didn't eat enough that day.  She almost blacked out.  She forgot to eat her lunch that day because she was nervous about a final exam.  Remember to make sure your kids are well nourished before they play in the hot sun.  It is good to see our swim team friends again though.  I also had to go up on my meds for my PTSD this week so I do not get overwhelmed with all the scheduling, driving and cleaning.  My sons are working as lifeguards and my daughters are on swim team.  Therefore, we need to keep up on our schedules for car use.

My Favorite Thing this Week: My favorite part of the week was definitely visiting our friends and taking a sewing class.

Books I'm Reading:  Still The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Things I'm Working On:  1) Straightening up the house for company this weekend and driving to and from my high schoolers end of the year pool party.  I have to send out a graduation card to my sons Godmother and five thank you cards to some homeschool co-op moms that will be leaving our co-op next year.  I also have to pick up some work ready for me at a copy center.  They have the books the children will use next year to learn the rosary.  I'm also thinking about teaching my seventh grader Introduction to Logic and Latin next year.  I was looking at Wheelock's Latin.  Does anyone know about this?

A Link, Photo, or Quote to Share: We learn more from our mistakes when we aren't so busy denying we made them.


  1. Are you ever busy! It's wonderful to hear how much your faith has blessed your children-America needs more of it!
    And you quote is SO true! This may turn into the house motto for the children;)

  2. Excellent quote - I need to remember that one!
