The Homeschool Mother's Journal - summer!

Love the new summer edition tag over at The Homeschool Chick!
In my life this week….
First week of summer vacation!!  Woot woot!  And you know what - I couldn't help myself! I already started a little planning.  I'm also tweaking our curriculum for next year and seeing what else needs to purchased.  Here's our 8th grade choices.  3rd and 5th coming up soon. 
My favorite thing this week was…
Shopping in a new to us mall by none other than - a mini train!  We took our mother in law to the airport this week and she gave us some money to stop by and enjoy a lunch out.  Have I mentioned that I have the best m-i-l ever!?!?  It's blurry but we were in action ;)

Places I’m going…
My oldest son and I will be gearing up for a week of summer camp starting June 13!  I would appreciate your prayers for our leaders and teens.
Things I’m working on…
Nothing really -  but I need to....
clean out this year's school stuff
get next year's out and place on shelves
planning - shouldn't be too difficult this year since we are using parts of My Father's World, Sonlight, and Classical Conversations.  I just need to combine which schedules we will be using.  I'm looking forward to doing that using my new weekly homeschool planner.
Books I’m reading…
A quote, a video, a link or pic to share…
Note to self:  Enjoy summer!  Jump in a few puddles - it's okay and fun too!!
