Homeschool Mothers Journal - Week 17
In my life this week.....
It was soooo busy. I had to cut out activities because of last minute additions. I really...really dislike those weeks. There were so many things to do and places to be. And it all culminated into Lydia and I walking in the Susan G. Kormen Race for the Cure on Saturday morning. I speed walked, she said she felt dragged. It was her first 5K. And she wasn't ready to run it. So we are going to work a schedule together to see if she would like to continue running.
In our homeschool this week....
So not only was I feeling the stress burn, but I also felt the time burning from our homeschool. So we had to make some adjustments to finish our work. Brayden struggled a bit in math this week, so I reworked his math. The benefit of homeschooling :)
The girls are loving piano...or so they say. I hope they are.
Next week I decided to make some other adjustments. Joey is going to take a server class from daddy.
Places we're going and people we are seeing....
We had our first LEGO class at a local business. They started offering homeschool LEGO classes. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was beyond what I was expecting. All the kids enjoyed it. Even Brayden, and he wasn't going to build he said.
We had Art class on Monday and it was fun, as always. Lydia had soccer, and both girls started back to ballet class this week. Of course there was bowling also.
Lydia and I did the Susan Kormen 5K walk Saturday morning and then we went to a local corn maize as a family that afternoon. Saturday was constant running between the 5K, a trip to Toledo to go shopping at Costco and then the corn maize. Let me say I felt Saturday all day today.
Projects I am working on.....
Time to get winter clothes and coats out of storage. Went tennis shoe shopping for the boys today. Need to make sure they have boots that fit also. So all that means I need to clean the basement. YUCK!!
We are going to be working on some room re-arranging to help out .... I hope. But who knows.
Joe and I are also working on our somewhat secret project. We are trying to get this idea up and running. So we are going to spend a day working on that this week. The kids are going to be excited to see they get a second day off from school this week because of that.
My favorite thing this week....
I honestly don't know. We had some fun at the corn maize. But let's just say sleep has been a favorite this week.
The girls and I made sunflower butter cookies made with garbanzo beans and sunflower seed butter. We had fall pumpkin chili. We had hamburger gravy, chicken and dumplings...a lot of comfort food. The sunflower butter cookies were a HUGE hit. Joey loved them. Will have to make them again this next week.
Nothing....still have the same book, sitting in the same spot...never touched :(
Photos from our week.....
Art class...working on grid drawing pop art.
That was our week....hope everyone had a fun week! Linking up with other moms at So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler.
