The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
I found out the exact date of when one of my close friends is moving back!!!!! I really am excited because I have missed her so much. It is amazing how when something leaves your life, that is when you realize how important something is to you.

In our homeschool this week…
I really enjoyed this week, maybe it was because I actually followed through with my schedule. 🙂
I think wingnut had a growth spurt mentally this week. Two days in a row he slept more than usual and then afterward he was talking in full sentences. Also, words are clearer and he is willing to try new words. It is nice actually being able to know what he is thinking, but man, everyone was right; once he started he does not stop 🙂
Nothing really new to say about math, literature or his reading lessons; they are moving along normally.
For art we switched out his painting that we take time to look at closely. For the next two weeks it will be Race Horses by Degas. Also, we took time this week to work on learning about the color wheel and what primary colors when mixed together make the secondary colors.
For our nature study this week, we worked on learning about North, South, East, and West by making a map of our back yard.

My favorite thing this week was…
Going on a treasure hunt with wingnut and my BIL.

Things I’m working on…
Trying to instill some chivalry into my son a little at a time. This week was helping bring groceries in. 🙂

I’m reading…
Still working on ‘the Dark Frigate’ and am almost done.

I’m grateful for…
Friends who accept me for who I am; nerd, geek and weird.

I have a new obsession and am loving it! Geocaching.
