The Homeschool Mother’s Journal–Week #3

In our homeschool this week…

We had another great school week.  We learned about having good manners and how to be a helper.  Emma Lee had fun putting together a quick craft all by herself about The Lion and the Mouse story.  It was fun seeing her perform the puppet show.

We studied about Cain and Abel in both our bible and history subjects this week.

Nathan did a great job presenting his Phonics Museum again this week.

M is for Mummy!

And I really think that Emma Lee is making some major improvements learning her letters.  Just take a look a look at what she made all by herself this week…

I was so proud of her!!  And the exciting part is that she recognized all of these letters.  Yeah!!

I must give some praise to these 2 little girls this week.  They were so good for their Mommy and did not give me a minute’s trouble.  I think they like the new daily schedule just as much as the big kids do.

Places We Are Going and People We Are Seeing…

Friday was our day to get out of the house this week.  I told the children that I had a surprise for them that day so they all worked hard to get their morning school work done super fast.  Our new co op starts on Monday so I surprised them all with new backpacks, lunchboxes, and nap mats.  We had big plans that day to go shopping for new co op supplies and then go on a quick tour of the new co op to drop off lesson plans.  We also enjoyed a fun lunch date (they all begged for Mexican) and then headed home for afternoon naps.  After seeing the co op rooms, they are all so excited about the new adventure that awaits them on Monday morning.

My favorite thing this week…

Catching this little guy asleep on the couch.

I Am Reading…

I am currently reading this book – One Hundred and One Devotions for Homeschool Moms – during my morning quiet time.  They are short daily devotions, but very to the point and have given me something to think on during the day. 

What is Working/Not Working For Us…

I mentioned last week that we were having a hard time fitting Grammar into our school day.  I am happy to report that this problem appears to be solved this week and I am so glad because this is one of our (Caleb + Mommy) favorite subjects each day.

Something not working for us right now is outside play time or at least I should say outdoor patio time.  Our patio is right beside the school room and it is usually a great extension to our classroom (reading in the swing or sending the energetic little girls out to play) but right now this space is full of renovation stuff and is not working for us.  I am really hoping this next weekend that we can clean this area out and open it back up for our family to use. 

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

We absolutely LOVE our piano teacher.  She is such a blessing to our family and here is a peek at Caleb Davis’ piano lesson this week. 

I am grateful for…

That my little ones get just as excited as I do about new backpacks and having their names on their new lunchboxes.  They played “co op” all weekend!!
