Homeschool Mother's Journal

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week... It's been a tough week emotionally. Suffice it to say that our extra four children are no longer in our care. As hard as it is, we are trusting God's Word... Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11 We are still licensed foster parents, so we are enjoying our four while we wait on the Lord's next assignment.

In our homeschool this week... After a couple days at the beginning of the week to decompress, we are back on track getting lots of schoolwork done. We acquired two goats to add to our mini-farm. Vanilla Bean is due to deliver next week, and Cinderella is on loan to keep her company until she delivers. Oh, and our butterflies have emerged from their chrysalids!

Places we're going and people we're seeing... No field trips this week. We've been busy with the 3 nights/week practice for Willy Wonka! But we are going Saturday to see Hubby's family in Baton Rouge... and to get the A/C fixed in the mini-van.

My favorite thing this week was... watching AJ7 play "school" with her little sisters. She was tryin to teach phonics to her 22 month old sister. And my other favorite thing was getting caught up on laundry.

What's working/not working for us... The rainy weather was definitely NOT working for us, but the sun is shining that is GOOD!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have... I am still contemplating a new math curriculum for AJ7. I think I have found what I am looking for in Christian Light's 1st grade math. I'm planning to buy it at the state homeschool conference & let her work with it through the summer.
