The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
Our neighborhood is redoing the sewer system and yesterday they had to dig a trench down the side of our house to the bathroom. This ended up being tricky for them because we had chickens running around the yard, they had to go past our fence and had to get their mini excavator in a five foot space. Now I need to replant the grass in my front lawn where they dug the trench. In the backyard I am not too worried about it.

In our homeschool this week…
This week went really well. Wingnut had a bit of interest in his math this week and we got a lot further then I had expected. I also brought out the abacus for him to start to learn how to use.
We did our reading of books and his reading lessons; nothing new or special in that area right now.
For his science we did a rock candy experiment and also learned about Quartz.
Two days this week I also had my BIL over to help him with his school work. Once again he is behind and we need to get him caught up.

My favorite thing this week was…
I had today off!! But I spent it sleeping most of the day so did not get much done.

Questions/thoughts I have…
Been thinking a lot about my nephew lately. He has been really stressed out lately. I am going to have him over this weekend to see if we can help him out.

Things I’m working on…
Trying to get some baby quilts done! Sometimes it is frustrating how little time I have for my hobbies.

I’m reading…
‘The Dark Frigate’ and I am really enjoying it.

I’m cooking…
I made a lentil soup that was really good. It looks disgusting when you look at it but tastes amazing.

I’m grateful for…
Extended family. It really does take a village to raise a child.
