The Homeschool Mother's Journal

Journaling my previous week....

In our homeschool we are finishing our reading of Five Little Peppers and Our Island Story. We are throwing in some a little bit of latin and math to get us primed for the next year set to begin Monday, Sept. 12.

Helpful homeschooling tips-Enjoy the unhurried, last few days of summer before settling into full blown lessons.

I am inspired by Tamara and her awesome Five in a Row Ideas and thank her for sharing them.

My favorite thing this week was having lunch out and a day of shopping with my daughter Robyn.

What is NOT working for us right now is our sleeping too late in the mornings.

Things I'm working on right now are-rising earlier to finish exercise before kids wake, finishing up on kids' lessons schedule for the new year, completion of the new face on our school room.

I am reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, A Biblical Home Education by Ruth Beechick (reading more but wanting to finish these NOW)

I am 'cooking' up new grain cereals for breakfast. Seven grain cereal soaked in water and greek yogurt for 24 hours. Excellent

I'm grateful for a new year of home schooling with my children.

I'm praying for patience, energy, and determination.

A favorite quote-"What luck for rulers that men do not think." Adolf Hitler"

That's what I thought when I saw it. I really didn't need one more thing to blog about but this to me is about journaling my homeschool. Easy to use, and quick.

Great idea! So, tomorrow starts the next school year, huh? You'll do a great job -- and I will be praying that the Lord will energize and refresh you and that you will be excited to teach and learn new things!
