The Homeschool Mother's Journal






July 13 , 2013


In my life this week...

It has been interesting . . . 
We were all recuperating after the holiday week . . . 
It was really busy . . . 
Everyone seemed to have a rough week . . . do you ever find that happens to you after a holiday or long weekend? (Maybe its just us) 




In our homeschool this week...

We got right back into the swing of things, and got to work. We are on our 4th week of school already, which means that we will be on our 2 week break the first of August. Wow, where does the time go? Seems to fly by! 

Monkey Man is doing great with his book club. They finished the first book, Liar and Spy which I am intrigued to read myself. It sounded cute! Now they are starting their second book. I think that Monkey Man is really enjoying this time to get with kids his age and discuss the book. Which I'm really happy about. 

The kids are still taking Piano lessons through the summer. Plus we still have a month or so of 4H left before we break for a month or so. Getting our stuff ready to enter in the local fairs. Sometimes it seems like a lot of work . . . Ha-ha! 

Otherwise we are still putting away at our normal studies, Math, Science, English, and Grammar. 




 Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share...

Remember you don't have to go super school in the summer. We choose to stay on task all summer, but you could just do light school. Where they just work on their English, Math, and Reading for the summer. Don't try to be a super mom! 



Places we are going or people we are seeing..... 

Oh lets see . . . 
We have book club, library, 
movies, a Co-op planning meeting,
and prepping for a special friends wedding on Saturday!

My mom taught us a new game Hand & Foot . . . 
Oh my! Was that just crazy, but we had a blast!
