Homeschool Mother’s Journal

In my life this week…

I got to have a girls night this week. It has been a LONG time since I’ve had one. It was so nice to catch up with my friend, without kids running around us the whole time.

Another exciting thing for me this week was that I exceeded my weight loss goal for the month of February. I can’t wait to shed some more pounds.

In our homeschool this week…

We have been learning about the early settlers of America in history. It is so interesting to learn what customs different cultures brought over. Did you know that the Swedish were the one’s who started building log cabins?

Abby was astounded by all the rules the Puritans had. Here’s one that especially caught her attention: Women who nagged or talked too much-scolds-were considered a curse and could be made to wear a scold’s bridle. That’s one rule I’m glad we left behind.

Places were going and people we’re seeing…

We started off the week by eating a very tasty dinner at our friends home on Sunday. This was followed by games of checkers, chess, war, and then a buffet of desserts. God has blessed us with some great friends!

This week we also got to be a traveling homeschool on Wednesday since our electricity went out after the icy snow storm. It is convenient that my husbands office isn’t too far away and we were able to use a spare room to get some work done. We had a couple people peek in and see what we were doing and say hi. They even brought the kids a snack. My husband has great coworkers.

Thankfully the lights and heat were back on when we went back home at lunch time.

Helpful homeschooling advice to share… 

It’s always good to have a plan. Having to switch gears so quickly on Wednesday, I was very grateful for the little organization I do have in our homeschool. It was easy to grab what books we needed and the lesson plans and go.

Books I’m reading…

Don’t forget today is the last day to enter my giveaway for the book God’s Names. It would be a great resource for you to use to teach your children more about God’s character.

Have a great weekend!
