The Homeschool Mother’s Journal–4/27

In my life this week…
Spring Fever overload!!  It is so hard to get back to school work after Spring Break!!  We are all ready for summer!!  I don’t think I could ever “officially” school year round.  I need a break – a long break!!  For us, that doesn’t mean that no school will be done for 2 months or so but it will not be scheduled and may not even look like school work.  It works 
for us!  Smile

In our homeschool this week...
We focused on the 3r’s – slow and steady.  With our Classical Conversations weeks done, the rest of the official school year will be focusing on the 3r’s mainly. 

We put MFW-ECC to the side for a little while to finish up a review product – God’s Great Covenant.  You can see my review for that here.  Through this curriculum we are still in the New Testament and studying the fulfilled prophecies of the Old Testament.  I really like the way this Bible curriculum is laid out.

Thursday 4/26 – we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary!!  We dated 8 years prior to that so I have been with this wonderful man of mine for a long time now and it just keeps getting better!!  My anniversary goodies – I picked them out.  Smile

However, that doesn’t even touch our 1 year anniversary present!  Our wonderful son was born 1 year and 1 day after we were married so we also celebrate his birthday this week. 
Happy 14th birthday, Jonathan!!  We love you!


My favorite thing this week was…
Enjoying my family – can you say – week long P-A-R-T-Y!!

Photos to share.....
We hit the road with school this week and headed to the library.  Everyday after, the kids asked if we could go back!!  I think they enjoyed the quiet.  Smile



  1. I'm with you on the long summer break! I'm ready for it! We've had a long, busy school year...and now it's time to relax, go swimming, visit parks, and READ. We still have at least 2 more weeks to go though!

    Happy anniversary! And happy birthday!

  2. Looks like a fun week! Happy Anniversary to you and Happy Birthday to your ds. I love the pink purse and wallet!

  3. I love the idea of studying at the library! I'm trying to decide if that would work for us, with having a couple little ones.
    And your anniversary gifts are so cute! :-)

  4. We will not actually be finished until the end of May but I cannot wait!

  5. Any sunny day here in Oregon makes it hard for me to stay focused on school and the girls aren't likely to object when I let them stay outside longer than usual! Tough staying on track some days.

  6. Maybe outside school is what we should focus on this week!

  7. Happy Birthday to your boy!! :) We had a birthday this week, too...only my boy turned 20.


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
