In my life this week…

My cousin came for a day, there was a memorial service, I chased immunization records across two states and likely irritated the snot out of two or three different institutions.  Friends came over from Seattle, saw them for about 5 minutes between Sunday and Monday.  Enrolled a kid in Choir at the high school and radio broadcasting at the trade school, managed to get dinner on the table every night AND………  nobody ran out of underwear until this morning Smile

In our homeschool this week…

We began studying Mozart.  Now, I will admit that I have tried this before and failed miserably. But I really want this to be part of our education plan, especially with the younger two.  The older ones are off and doing trade school and junior college as part of their high school activities, so I should have plenty of time to incorporate this. 

We have been plugging along with Big IQ kids as a TOS review item.  We have enjoyed the states study, and the spelling from that program. 

Jeremiah has been plugging along with his ABC’s and is doing very well at his letter recognition and sounds.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Keep it simple.  You do not have to have a craft every day.  You do not need to do every subject everyday ( with the exception of reading, some writing and MATH)  Many times, 20 attention filled minutes is better than a 2 hour long project.

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

See you next week!

  1. love your opening paragraph…we get so busy, and well that running out of underwear thing seems to be happening alot…(I’ve GOT to get a better system!)
    Your study of the composers sounds great. Music so often gets neglected in homeschool with the exception of the token instrument. so nice to read about someone giving appreciation and the composers some face time! bravo! stopping by from the HMJ linky.
