For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The Homeschool Mother Journal

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

This week I have been enjoying listening to the audios from The Ultimate Homeschool Expo and being refreshed and encouraged by the great topics being presented.

I have also been enjoying Sarah Mae's  Book 31 Days to Clean. I have been behind on the challenges but I am still doing them at my own pace.


In our homeschool this week…

For the past 2 weeks school has been going well. We are moving along in our TOG studies, and excited to get back to Greece next week. We enjoyed a game from STW on Mesopotamia (found in the activity book), which served as a nice review of the history of ancient Mesopotamia.

In math I have started implemented the new Math On the Level Curriculum and I am liking it so far. I am able to teach both boys at the same time and focus on topics better. This week we covered fractions and the boys enjoyed it.

In Science the boys have been enjoying watching some videos on Physics and doing lots of experiments on force, energy, and speed using their bikes and whatever they find on their hands.

We have been doing spelling as well, "a la me"

We have allowed them to watch the episodes of MacGyver with us and they absolutely love it. All day they keep playing Macgyver in the house, which has got them even more active than they already were.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

Everyday this week we have gone to the park which the boys have been very happy about. They have been able to spend their energy, and everyone is quite happy about that.


My favorite thing this week was… getting a lot of things on my to do list  accomplished and being re-motivated. I have also enjoyed visiting a greenhouse this week with the boys:

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I am still debating over my line up for next year. I thought I had it all figured out but I am the kind that always second guesses herself, so here I am still thinking about it.

I am a chronic second guesser too! It's no wonder my hips are ever exceeding my jeans size...all the fretting I drown in oreos! Sorry...just bonding a little. :)

And you reminded me that I don't utilize Netflix & YouTube enough for those tougher concepts in Science and Math.

I'm SO happy I hopped over here today... (from the homeschool journal link)
