Homeschool Week in Review–Week 14

December is running away with me!  We’re only eight days in and I already feel like maybe we should throw schooling to the wind until the New Year because of how busy we’ve been!  I won’t do it though.  I’m not brave enough.  What do you other homeschoolers do during the holiday season? We ended […]

Homeschool Week(s) in Review–Weeks 12 & 13

Is it December already?  Goodness, how did THAT happen? The last two weeks have been a little crazy.  Thanksgiving took over and we only did two days worth of school work that week. The rest of the week was taken over by cooking and baking. My contribution to the family Thanksgiving meal Gabby did finish […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 11

Just when I thought we we’re getting over the hump of illness that we experienced last week, my baby girl ended up with a double ear infection.  It not only made her extremely lethargic and feverish, She laid down in the floor and fell asleep 🙁 but it even made my sweet girl’s eyes swell […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 10

What a week. What.a.week. It all started Sunday night when about thirty minutes before bed, my little Bubba man started complaining of a sore throat. I figured it was just from the weather changes we’d had, that some outdoor irritant had made him scratchy and that with some water and some sleep, he’d be good […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 9

Another week gone by and lots of learning taking place!  I’m going to take a moment to gush about how much I truly enjoy teaching my children.  Back when I first started with my oldest, I was a ball of nerves.  I was unsure of where this journey would lead and if I was up […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 7

 It’s been a busy week! We started the week continuing our tree/leaf/seed nature unit.  My husband loves to deer hunt and he went to a local park to gather acorns to put out to attract them to his hunting spot.  The children went with him and it was a perfect opportunity to discuss the oak […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 6

We dove back into our regular curriculum last week after taking two weeks off to have some fun with robots.  I was still a little harried from everything going on and I also developed a facial infection so our week while on task moved slowly.  I didn’t get as many pictures as I typically take […]

Homeschool Week in Review—Week 3

I think it’s nearly safe to say that our routine is starting to settle in, although we weren’t exactly on schedule this week due to a few late nights and oversleeping! In Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory, Gabriella is learning about the English pioneers who settled in Jamestown. We added the settlement of the […]

Homeschool Week in Review–Week 2

Two whole weeks in with no major bumps! It’s looking like it’s going to end up being a fabulous year! I’ve had a tentative and loose schedule for our subjects running and so far it seems to help the day go relatively smoothly for both children.  The only thing that sometimes throws a wrench in […]

Homeschool Week in Review—Week 1

Well, we did it! We completed the first week of our new school year!  Gabriella is officially a first grader and Aron is starting kindergarten! At the table getting ready to begin I think I was more nervous this year.  It’s the first time that I’ve taught them at the same time using different curricula.  […]
