In my life this week
This week has been slow. Four out of five children have been sick. I have managed to keep up with workouts, dinner, and school, that's about it. I am excited for Saturday! Nana is coming over to watch the kids so my husband and I can get a very much needed date night!
In our homeschool this week
School is coming along. I am very excited that I switched my daughter's Science to Exploring Creation with General Science. I love it! We have done two experiments about atoms that were incredibly easy. (I like easy experiments)
Places we are going & people we are seeing
As I mentioned above my husband and I have a dinner date on Sat. Yay! On Sunday we will be attending the Cub Scout Pine wood Derby Race. My son is very excited and so are we!
My favorite thing this week
My favorite thing this week has got to be that all the sick little ones I have are starting to look and feel better!
What's working/Not working for us
I think I will be getting rid of most of the curriculum we are using now. The Science we are using that I mentioned above, is great! We will stay with Saxon Math and the religion we are using, but I think we will say good-bye to everything else. Our reading program, Alpha-Phonics is working quite well with my first grader. I'm happy I gave it a try.
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have
I have been researching the Charlotte Mason method of homeschooling and I think that is the direction we are going to go for next year. I ordered a few of her books to read. Right now our homeschool is school at home, very dry. I think CM may be a good fit for us.
