In or homeschool this week.... we continued reading Our Island Story, Trial and Triumph, and other various reading along with math and latin.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice....It's only the first week. Hang in there!

I am inspired by....My son Aaron and for his thoughtfulness.

My favorite thing this week....Finishing up our schooling area.

Things I'm working on....My own planner and teaching ideas.

I'm reading....Nourishing Traditions - again

I'm cooking....Bread and cinnamon rolls

I'm grateful for....freedom

I'm praying for....My children's happiness

Quote for the week....."History, in general, only informs us what bad government is." Thomas Jefferson

Very nice...
Smells like fall is in the air?
Remember...before the snow flies!
Again, love the new look where do you get all the old victorian pic's?

I like seeing pictures that show how other homeschoolers organize their school stuff. It looks like we have similar ideas. I have a room where all the stuff is kept and the computers are. I also keep each of the kids items separate,but they are in those plastic 3 drawer organizers on wheels.
Have fun this year! We are starting this week too.

Hi Lori. Thanks. The look was actually an accident. But it turns out I liked it so I kept it. I was playing around with my homeschool blog, changing template and such and then somehow I accidentally ended up doing it on my family blog.

Yes, before the snow flies. I should look into my week this week and see what my hubby's schedule is.

I enjoyed reading your homeschooling thoughts. I like the fact that you are praying for your children's happiness. It shows, at least to me, that you truly care about your children's well-being.

Your school set-up is very organized. Although I'm not a home schooling mom (because I don't have the children to home school), I like seeing how home school mom's set-up school work spaces in their homes.

At any rate, I pray that your home school year will be successful. :)

Thanks for sharing! I really enjoyed getting a "view" into your world! You are definitely organized -- and I'm jealous of that monitor the boys have!!! :)
