Homeschool Mothers Journal - Week 34


In my life this week.....

What a week!  Just really busy.  There was too much to do and not enough time to get it all done.  I only scheduled us with 3 days of school because I knew we would be so busy.  We did manage to get almost all the work done.  Joey didn't finish his science reading, although he pretended too....lol.

Joey has been prepping for the cheerleading districts.  Poor Caty has a very bad bladder infection.  It took a few days to get an answer from the doctor's office.  So she is on meds.  She missed all her dance classes this week though.  She didn't feel like tap dancing.  She's moving a better though now.

In our homeschool this week....

We finished all but a little of Joey's science.  It was mainly review science on our nervous system and eyes.  So we'll be able to catch up no problem.  I did have to take him back from 5th grade science, which is only one year behind him...to 3rd grade.  I don't think it was that he couldn't handle the work.  but Joey does not do well with lots of words on a page.  The 5th grade science book was overwhelming to him, so he refused to do it.  I kept him in A Beka, because I like their text and comprehension and projects.  But we'll wait and see what happens.  I may have to switch the way we do science with him...again.  Going to try this for a few units.

Lydia is loving her new science (watch for the upcoming review).  We finished Caroline Book 3 this week.  She made a skiffer for her American Girl Dolls.  And even made Julie a little suitcase.

What I am reading....

Nothing that doesn't involve something for the kids...sorry to say.  There's not much time and energy left after that.

What I am cooking....

I tried a couple times this week to make homemade bread.  It was not successful.  When we get home from our trip, I will continue my endeavor..lol.

Wishlist item.....

I want to do a unit on magnets.  So I am shopping around for a good kit to do this with....any suggestions?

I'm working on....

Not losing my mind.  Packing for our trip and finishing up last minute stuff has been driving me crazy all week.

I rewarded the kiddos with....

They will each get to pick a small treat today from our prize box.  While getting things around for our trip, I actually dug into the big orange tub I have hidden.  Holy Cow!!!  There's some cool stuff in there!!  Brayden also earned a month of Builders Club on Roblox.

Something to share....

We did 2 cool science experiments this week since it was soooo cold!!

Tried to throw boiling water in the air....about 40% evaporated.  Not quite cold enough.

And we did the frozen bubbles experiment...

  1. This sets an owner on the path to a successful trade by engendering replica watches sale confidence and helping to envision a realistic return on the value of a trade. Comparing conditions, equipment, and replica watches sale prices assists in one of the most challenging tasks for a rolex replica sale watch trader: managing expectations. Virtually all new watches take a depreciation hit after purchase, but many replica watches owners fail to realize this until a trade negotiation is in progress. That's too late. It is important to meet a trade partner half-way with an honest assessment of one's own watch and a realistic expectation of trade value. Always be certain to know your watch before you trade. The growth of trading continues to surge in a luxury watch sector that moves closer to the consumer mainstream rolex replica sale each year. More watches in the hands of more collectors, the emergence of professional pre-owned replica watches sale specialists, and expanding online replica watches sale information resources are driving the trading trend.
