In my life/homeschool this week…well, it was much less hectic than last week. We made it through the week with no home repairs! I’m slowly getting our kitchen reorganized and reordered. I’m very much enjoying all of our new space.
In our homeschool this week…we finished up our Lewis & Clark unit this week. Next week we start our final Paths of Exploration unit, Trails West. I have talked about this program a lot, but I feel like the kids have learned so much this year.
My favorite thing this week was… we’re celebrating our oldest son’s birthday today, Jacob turns 11! We finished up our school for the week so we could go to lunch on Friday and enjoy the day.
Questions/thoughts I have… I have used workboxes for several years now. As the kids are getting older, the boxes are becoming more of a dumping ground for junk than an organized way to hold their school work. I’m thinking about finding a different way to store their books. Actually I’d like to revamp our entire school room, but I’m fresh out of ideas.
I’m reading…This week I finished up my 90 Day historical read through the Bible, I can check that goal off my list, and I’m still reading What’s Eating Your Child.
I’m cooking… We had Quinoa & Ham Cups this week, they were very good and so easy to make. The leftovers would make a great breakfast the following day. We are in the midst of birthday time so we have been treat making too. Next week I’ll share the cake we are making for Jacob, I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
I’m grateful for…Jacob’s birth family in Russia. We’re praying for them and thinking of them today. So thankful that we have the opportunity to parent him.
