The Homeschool Mother's Journal - 6

The Homeschool Chick

In my life this week...

After last week's fun mini-vacation, we're back to the regular stuff this week. I'm not sure I'm ready for the regular craziness -- Lauren's back in therapy, Addison has youth group activities three nights this week, Brennan has a Cub Scout meeting and a Boy Scout campout, and there's probably a few other things going on.

In our homeschool this week...
Both Addison and Brennan are starting a new writing program. I'm not sure it's the answer I've been hoping for, but I do know that what we were doing wasn't really working for us. Every time I eliminate something that doesn't work, I get closer to finding something helpful, right?

We're also continuing with Latin. Lauren was so funny today because she insisted on watching the video with us. She'll probably pick up the vocabulary as fast as the rest of us.

Places we're going and people we're seeing...
Brennan's excited about a big campout next weekend, and Addison is excited about the Winter Jam concert. Lauren's excited about getting to see Nana and Papa on Friday. I'm just trying to figure out how to juggle it all.

My favorite thing this week...
We all had such a wonderful time at Great Wolf Lodge. My favorite moments were when we were all riding down one of the big slides together. I could look around our raft and see everyone grinning. I can't believe Lauren already loves the wild rides.

What's working/not working for us...
Last Thursday and Friday, I tried to pick back up with schoolwork, but I didn't have it all planned out. The next time we have a few days off, I'll make sure to have a printed (and filled out) schedule ready for when we get home.

A photo to share...


  1. What a fun trip! It can be so hard to get back into the swing of things after you've taken some time off.

    Isn't it wonderful that homeschooling is flexible enough to fit all of the fun stuff in too?

    Blessings to you,
    Sue :)

  2. What are you using for Latin? Just curious which video series.


  3. Latin for Children -- review coming later this month. :)
