The Homeschool Mother’s Journal

I love hearing from other mother's whose journeys are similar to mine. So I have decided to link up with The Homeschool Mother's Journal on Fridays.

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

We are wrapping up our final math lessons. Both girls will be doing some reading over the summer. Goat Princess is working on Dragon's Gate at the moment and H-Bob has a stack of I-Can-Read books from the library to work on her fluency.

In our homeschool this week…

I have been trying to get in as much gardening time as possible to make up for our long, wet spring which isn't over yet.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

I loved our charter school experience last year but have made sure this year that the classes the girls are taking outside of the home will NOT cause me to pull my hair out with driving to and fro.

I am inspired by…

I thoroughly enjoy the 'adult' conversation with my fellow Christian Youth Theater parents. There is always something that someone says that inspires me in someway.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

We just returned from our 25th wedding anniversary and entire family vacation in May, so we'll be staying put for quite a while now.

My favorite thing this week was…

I just realized that I didn't set my tomatoes or cucumbers out last year until the middle of June, so I'm not too far behind this year.

What’s working/not working for us…

After purchasing a laminator last winter, I'm able to print up charts that I can turn into dry-erase sheets. Chores charts on the refrigerator, reminders for myself of daily routine items, and check-off lists in H-Bob's summer school binder are becoming well used.

Questions/thoughts I have…

I'm wondering how to carve out some uninterrupted time to plan Goat Princess's freshman year of high school and H-Bob's fourth grade studies for next year.

Things I’m working on…

I've been busy gardening, though I'd love to update some of our living room accessories and brighten up the room.

I’m reading…

Well, I have stacks of stuff from the library to read, but I never seem to get to them. I do want to start The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything by Ken Robinson before it has to go back.

I’m cooking…

Dinners have used a lot of venison and elk from the freezer to help balance our food budget this month.

I’m praying for…

I need a daily summer schedule that keeps me focused throughout the day. What I need is the wisdom to determine my priorities at this time.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

This is what summer homeschool should be about in our family...having the time to head out to the woods and pick salmon berries. I'm not fond of them, but hubby and H-Bob sure are.



Enjoy your weekend!

I cannot wait to get back home to Oregon! We live in Canby and are praying God will have us moved back by August. Are you anywhere near Canby? I also plan to start and garden and get a laminator for next year. I am praying for God to direct your to a place to be able to plan school for the upcoming year.
