The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...
     This week was so full. I am happy to be spending the whole day home today. Louisiana is warming up and it is starting to feel like spring! 

In our homeschool this week...
     We have done more hands on learning. 

Places we're going and people we're seeing...
     Monday was our annual Valentine's outing with our homeschool group. Music lessons were cancelled Tuesday so we added in an afternoon of art (and sunburn) on the porch. Wednesday we visited Granny and Powpow. Thursday was a wonderful family day. Mitch was able to take the day off so we rode the ferry that will be closing this spring, viewed the bridge being build and discussed the design, ate yummy cajun food, fit in a quick trip to Whole Foods, then went to Winter Jam together.

My favorite thing this week was...
     Painting with the children outside! 

What's working/not working for us...
     Making time for new things has been harder this week because we were on the road so much. We did enjoy the Latin CD in the car.  

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...
     I don't want to get into a negative attitude or comparing our family to others, but I  do have so many things I want to incorporate into our lessons...so much to do, so little time.

  1. Love spending time outside! I know what you mean by "so much to do, so little time", I feel the same way.

  2. Your homeschooling and how you plan and implement it are an inspiration. Are you teaching your kids Latin – wow – that has Harvard or Yale written all over it:)

    I was blessed by your words today. Thank you.

    God be with you and yours

  3. Living free, I'm inside for a minute after a late lunch. Today all the windows are open, sheets are drying on the line, and we have been working on the flower beds and tree house. This weather is perfect!

    Craig, thank you for your kind words. I'm learning Latin with the kids. It started as a challenge this year, but we just got a review item that is making it fun.

  4. We have enjoyed the weather and some time out of doors this week, too! It has been so pleasant outside, in the 60's most of this week for highs. Such a pleasant change after the snow last week. :)
