The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - Week 2

Join me and the Homeschool Mother's Journal  as we recap our week.

In my life this week…I am feeling completely overwhelmed.  I'm watching my nephews while my sister trys to get permanent childcare arrangements made.  They are 3 and 5 and VERY active boys.  I feel like I'm so far behind in cleaning a laundry I may never catch up. I
In our homeschool this week… We are still trying to get into a groove.  This week we studied monasteries.  We read The Ink Garden of Brother Theophane by C.M. Millen.   

The pictures are beautiful, but I can't say Bee was all that impressed with it.  She did love learning that colored ink came from plants.

Bee is doing GREAT in Spelling and has gotten another perfect spelling test this week.  She is enjoying reading but is so excited to be reading books that I have to remind her to slow down and read EVERY word. We are still reviewing the Math from last year, so nothing new there. 

I am still trying to finalize a ASL (American Sign Language) curriculum.  I am using several different resources and trying to come up with something that works for us.  I am also trying to figure out a way for our school days to go smoother.  I am currently trying to put together a school binder for Bee.  It will have lesson plans for the day, the schedule for the week and month.  I'm not sure what else will be in there, but it's a work in progress.

I am feeling frustrated at the Co-ops in our area.  Every time I try to find something to put Bee in, it's to expensive or they are no longer meeting.  I am taking a leap of faith and enrolling Bee in Awanas at a church in our area.

My favorite thing this week was…Bee dressed in her Ballerina outfit for her Ballet class.  She looks so cute in her little pink tights.

Questions/thoughts I have…How do I better allow Bee to spend time with other kids? 

Things I’m working on… I'm working on a home binder and a School binder for Bee.  I'm hoping it will make me feel more organized.  I'm also working on staying calm.  I'm embarrassed to say I am having trouble not going crazy lately.

I’m grateful for…Those people who love me and remember I am only human.

I’m praying for…Peace. As I said before I am feeling very wound up lately and I don't like it.

Thank you for checking me out. I hope to see you again!

  1. Dropping by from the HHH! Sounds like you had a good week. It can be tough at first, but you'll find a good groove, despite bumps in the road! Awanas is a great way to be involved with other kids! We don't do Awana at our church, but my kids love Wednesday nights when we DO have other kids meet at church. My girls are in girl scouts and that's a great, relaxed way to meet others and enjoy. Plus, you can't beat a good park day! (or evening!)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you.
