Homeschool Mothers Journal

By Kira On August 29, 2011 Under Homeschool

Once again time has flown by and it has been weeks since I posted  😕 . The last few weeks I have been working on our school schedule for fall. I am really excited about homeschooling this year!! This is our 3rd official year homeschooling (4th if you count preschool). However, this will be our first year of just homeschooling and not running a daycare as well. This is also our first year using Tapestry of Grace which I am also very excited about!! We will be starting with Egyptian History and I am already learning a ton myself just prepping for the year to start it will be so much fun to share it with my 4yr old and 7yr old!!

So to my post for the day…while doing some research I stumbled upon a homeschooling blog The Homeschool Chick who does a weekly link up The Homeschool Mothers Journal.  This looked like a fun way of sharing some of what we are doing each week :-)

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
In our homeschool this week…

I am working on our schedule and making sure I have everything ready to go for our first day. I’m hoping to start back to school right after Labor Day

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… 

My Mom is coming to town this coming week so we will be visiting with her!!! Also planning our first trip to the Science Museum downtown :-) Lots of Fun Stuff to look forward to!!

My favorite thing this week was…

Watching my kids play…my 15 month old is getting to were she will play with the older two and they are soo much fun to watch as they dance and sing or even just sit and read books together :-)

What’s working/not working for us…

kind of random but 8pm bedtimes for our kids is working really well this week…Prior to moving our kids were always in bed by 7pm as they had to be up by 7am for daycare kids to arrive. After Moving though we adjusted the schedule so they had a 8:30pm bedtime because of my DH not getting home till 6:30-6:45is from work. What I found though was that 8:30 quickly became 9 and we still had kids getting up for the bathroom or a question and I would get frustrated easily as it got later. However, 8pm seems to be perfect! The kids have some time with Dad and then can head in to bed around 7:45pm giving DH and I our evening back :-)

Things I’m working on…

Organizing my room…you know it is one of those rooms that no one else sees so it is the lowest priority. However, I am tired of all the boxes that I have just never gotten to unpacking. Hoping to get it finished tomorrow.

I’m reading…

Right now I am pre-reading the kids school books for Tapestry of Grace so I am not surprised by any of the content. Also starting on the book Shepherding a Child’s Heart.

I’m grateful for… 

My Amazing Husband  :-)

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

Our Nature find for the week :-) My older Daughter is very into bugs so this was very exciting!!
