My Homeschool Mother’s Journal #2

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
.In my life this week…

It seems like we’ve been running in five hundred directions all week. And yes, I’ll admit it… I’ve had a couple of meltdowns where I’ve just had to leave the kids with the hunny and take a walk for some peace and quiet.

In our homeschool this week…

We’re almost finished with this year’s work! YEA! So… since I am planning on schooling through the summer, I’ve been searching out curriculum and making plans for our next year, which technically doesn’t start until July 1st (because of the umbrella school) but we are going to start sometime around the middle of May or first of June.

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

We’ve been to Shiloh (a creek) three times this week. The water is cold, the mud is thick, but the kids are enchanted! We’ve also been to Nashville, which is always fun!

My favorite thing this week was…

Okay, I know this is going to sound lame, but I found a free Spelling program with spelling RULES instead of just lists! Heck yeah! “Go Momma, It’s your birthday! Woot-woot!”

(And as sad as it sounds, I was actually doing the head bobbing thing while typing that… hehe- forgive me!)

What’s working/not working for us…

ha! Making the kids get up BEFORE 8am…. the horror! (But it’s a good thing for me!) I’ve heard several times this week “But MOOOOMMMMM….. we hooooomeschoooool! I dont waaannnnnaaa wake up before the bus goes byyyy!” again…insert evil cackle here!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I’m really interested in the whole scheduling thing still. How do you schedule school work, house work, cooking, errands, etc, etc and still get ANYTHING accomplished?!? What works, doesn’t work, helps and doesn’t help?

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

I want to share all the great, free curriculum I’ve been hunting up, but I’d rather share a picture of my darling little girl at Shiloh!
