My Homeschool Week
It is time for The Homeschool Mother's Journal Summer Edition. If you would like to participate in this great meme just click on the name.
In my life this week... we had a great 4th of July celebration with the family of my son's girlfriend. Her mom works at a local elementary school and this was a great spot to view the fireworks in the city without getting caught in the big crowds. We had a very nice dinner beforehand and her family is beautiful. It was nice to sit on the lawn while the kids played and I talked to her sweet mom.
In our summer homeschool week... we've been continuing with our Math. It was hard to get to much else this week because the swim team has kept us very busy.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...This weekend we'll be attending the adult pool party at our local pool. I was also able to attend the swim meet on Wednesday evening with my five year old to watch my girls compete.
What's working/not working for us...The swim team is definitely an asset to my kids summer but it has really been quite hard these past two weeks to do any homeschooling. All my five year old wants to do is play with his older brothers who are home from college. I'm going to have a challenge on my hands when we have to get serious about hitting the books again.
I'm reading...God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew
Things I'm working on...making sure the kids have some material to read while we are at the beach in August. I also just ordered a planner for next year which I will be using frequently.
A photo, video, link, or quote to share...If only I'd known that one day my differentness would be an asset, then my early life would have been much easier.
