In our homeschool this week…

We started our next 6 wk session… The first week went really well, and we had some enjoyable lessons..

We worked on our usual studies, and this week they had Piano Lessons!

Next week we are starting on the second book of Story of the World, that we are all very excited about! We love that program!

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Put together a good amount of lessons at a time.. I do mine in 6 wk spreads. Makes for a less hectic, more productive time.

 

I am inspired by…

Lots of people around me!

 

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

This upcoming week we are going to be taking it easy (well as easy as I take it) since we start Cub Scout Camp for 2 weeks the following week. 

We will go to Piano, the Library, maybe the movies, and 4H.

 

My favorite thing this week was…

Going to the coast with my family.. it has been awhile since we did that. Such a great time!

This hot weather, is making us cranky!!

What is everyone else been up to this summer? Any special trips?!

 

Things I’m working on…

Prepping for my Girl Scout Awards BBQ this weekend. I have been a bit behind in getting ready for that!

I’m cooking…

A green bean, summer squash, zucchini, feta salad, chicken, and red potatoes sautéed in butter and garlic! YUM!

 

I’m grateful for…

All the wonderful things we have had time to do this summer.. We have made so many wonderful memories!

So, tell me more about SOTW! I've got it on my curriculum list for my 2 youngest next year. But I'm torn between SOTW and Child's History of the World. I want something "relaxed" that I can read to the kids like a story/book...and maybe add in some activities and videos if we hit on something they want more information on. Nothing too formal as other subjects will be be structured and focused and challenging.

I'll be planning lessons 7 weeks at a time next year. I'm liking it! We'll have 7 weeks on and 1 week off (except for one spring session that will be 6 weeks.) Although I have ROUGH IDEAS for all the sessions, I've been focusing on just the first.
