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 Journal

In my life this week…

This week was a good quiet week. I am still working on making our schedule work and getting the kids and myself disciplined.

In our homeschool this week…

With Easter Monday and a day devoted to trying out the Blue-footed Booby Curiosity File, we really only had 2 1/2 days of school this week. However, we did the most of it and did our History, science, math (money), English and spelling (same as last week, and it went over just as well).

Us playing a Math game called Smath:

Building an Assyrian siege tower



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

This week we just went to Electives, Zach's violin lesson, library trip (usually it's just me or my hubby picking up things), and yesterday a Bible College and Seminary graduation.

My favorite thing this week was… cleaning up and decluttering the boys' bedroom.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I have purchased Math on the Level and have been spending a lot of time on the Math on the Level yahoo group. I can't wait to get it into my hands.

I have also purchased the Biology Grammar Stage from Elemental Science and have been reading up on it too.

If any of you have experience with either of these curriculum I am all ears.

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

Great photo!

We have been slowly decluttering around here, too. Last week was the laundry room, the weeks prior were the bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets. It feels so good to get things in order.

Have a great weekend!
