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 had our last co-op this week with a Mass at the ending. The children were all so good. We will be gathering for our end-of-the-year picnic soon. My two college sons are in full swing working as lifeguards now. One of them had to save a little girl already. I'm so proud of him. My high schooler only has one more week of school left for exams. It has been a hectic week scheduling when and who is using the cars. Therefore, I'm glad we are on a light schedule.

Things I'm Working On: 1) Right now I'm getting a list of literature recommendations for my seventh grader from Ttailoredreading.com. 2) I also finished preparing a book to teach our pre-k and kindergardners in the co-op the rosary for next year. 3) I just received a beach ball of the world for my dance and movement class and am currently working on a song for the children. 4) I have to put my daughter's hair up for her ballet recital tonight. We will be busy a good part of this weekend with her recital.
