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

Homeschool Mother Journal

In my life this week…Recuperating from last week's  DVBSes ,  Planning, planning, planning and TOS crew mingling, oh yeah,  cleaning too.

In our homeschool this week… Not much!  The boys are still reading up in Ancient Rome, they really love this era as we are completing our TOG year 1. They are enjoying playing some Math games on Dad's ipad. We did do some spelling as well (wow that is really something!)

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… None I am always looking for some.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… Nowhere in particular since it is so brutally hot here. We only went o the library and the mall to cool off. On Monday we were supposed to go to a homeschool picnic but I sprung my ankle last Saturday while racing a friend of mine on one of those inflatable obstacle courses, so I had to stay home with my foot up. Zach has been going to a group violin summer class and will be performing at a Starbucks next Saturday, very exciting!

My favorite thing this week was… Getting a new cell phone (in my case first one). We are cutting our cable and home phone (cost cutting), so we picked up a cell phone for me to use as the home phone - unlimited calls for $24/month, not bad, definitely better than the $40 odd we were paying every month.

Questions/thoughts I have… Why do kids love computer games so much?

Things I’m working on…Lesson plans and  schedule for next school year.

I’m cooking… a birthday cake for my hubby's birthday tomorrow: Double Chocolate Bomb.
