In my life this week… 

We have been pretty busy, but not as bad as the week before. Trying to get ready for winter, a few trips, and some activities going on.  You??

In our homeschool this week… 

We did good. The kids are staying pretty much on task, and enjoying our lessons. I’m hoping things continue to go smoothly! If you would like to read more about our homeschool journey, go here.

 

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Make sure to in cooperate some fun stuff, and don’t be afraid to let a little book work slide to do it. They will still learn, and most importantly have a BLAST along the way!

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

This week, we are not really going to many places, maybe a day trip in Augusta, to run some errands, and stop at the library, and most importantly the BOOK STORE. My kids love the book store.

Then we have a Girl Scout Dance this Friday, so we will see some friends, and have a great time!

On Saturday we are attending a Goat School, and learning about goats. Should be interesting… Look for a post on that!

My favorite thing this week was…

Watching my kids face, when they got to go play in the snow today! My son was EXCITED!!!

What’s working/not working for us…

I really think our bit more scheduled, but laid back schedule is working for us this year. Last year I was so worried about getting all our days in, I let it suck the fun out of our lives. This year we are taking things as they come, and working with it. Smile  Very important to keep everyone happy!

Questions/thoughts I have…

What special things do you teach around Thanksgiving?? 

Things I’m working on…

Trying to be more patient (still) and learning to let the little things slide. Being a bit more laid back… Having lots of fun!

I’m reading…  Escape by Barbara Delinsky

I’m cooking…  Today’s menu includes some yummy Sheppard’s Pie!

I’m grateful for…  A very supportive mom, that helps we when ever I need it. She is even taking Latin, with Monkey Man, so I can focus on the girls, and he still gets his work done. Its kinda of cute. (She does worksheets and all… the best part is, I think she is really having fun with it)


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

Middle Monkey at her birthday party.. Her favorite thing of the party. A Hay Jump.. who woulda thought??

Goat school! We almost signed up, but couldn't fit it in. (And it's a bit of a drive for us.) You'll have a blast!

We've just started our Thanksgiving/Pilgrim studies. I have a post started about the books, worksheets and links we're using. Have you seen the Scholastic First Thanksgiving website? Pretty neat!
