Homeschool Mother’s Journal

In my life this week…

After the craziness last month, we decided to take it easy this week and not plan anything. It was wonderful!

In our homeschool this week…

We started out the week with watching the Endeavour launch. Jonathan bought a rocket, put it together with the kids, and launched it later that day.

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

We went to some garage sales… and that’s about it.

My favorite thing this week was…

Jonathan found a chiminea on Craig’s List. We spent Thursday night making s’mores (a.k.a. s’moring) and playing outside. We had some quality family time!

What’s working/not working for us…

I found the greatest thing to help Abby with learning long division this week. I had forgotten how hard this could be, but this mnemonic (powerpoint file) from Lexington County School District has helped SO much.

A video to share…
