The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - August 23,2014

Join me and The Homeschool Mother's Journal as we recap our week.
  • In my life this week...This week I spent my time trying to nail down vacation plans for September.  we are hoping to make a trip to Branson, MO.  We are not normally camping people but we are considering renting a RV. To make life interesting Mr. Daddy's work didn't finalize the vacation time until Friday. 
  • In our homeschool this week... This was our second week so we are still working out some bugs.  Overall everything is going well.
  • My favorite thing about this week was...My favorite thing this week was getting to go on a date with Mr. Daddy.  We haven't been on a date since before Mr. Mister was born.  We got to see a movie.
  • My kiddos favorite thing this week was...When Mr. Daddy and I went on a date they got to go to Grandma and Grandpa B's house to play.  The girls loved it, but Mr. Mister cried for the first hour we were gone.  I felt so bad for the grandparents.
  • Things I'm working on...I'm still trying to work on meal planning.  I feel so distracted about everything lately.  This waiting to hear about a possible move is stressful. 
  • I'm grateful for... I'm thankful for a small break from the every day that a movie date gives me.
  • I'm praying for...I'm still praying for peace and guidance on Mr. Daddy's possible promotion and our possible relocation.
  • I rewarded my kids this week by... I ordered Chinese food from our favorite Chinese restaurant on Friday night.  Our kids love chicken fried rice just like Mr. Daddy.
  • Something I'm ogling or have my eye on...I have had the same winter coat for 14 years and I keep saying I'm going to replace it.  I think I' may actually get it done this fall.  I have been looking at some retro inspired swing coats for about a year.
Until next time,

The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - August 16, 2014


Join me as I recap our homeschooling week.
  • In my life this week...I'm trying to get the house in order after our resent move.  This is only complicated by the fact we may be moving again soon due to a possible job promotion for Mr. Daddy

  • In our homeschool this week...We started the 2014-2015 school year.  Bee is in 4th grade this year.  She is really looking forward to a few of the books we will be reading this year.  Bug begged to "do school" this year even though she's only 3, so she's in "Preschool."  She's learning colors, shapes, letters, and numbers.

  • Helpful homeschool tips or advice to share...Always build in some extra time off in the school year.  This year we started very early in order to add 4 weeks of extra time off.  I usually just get out a calendar, mark off the time we want off, for Christmas and such, pick when I want to be done and count backwards from there.  You never know when the family will get sick or have something come up.  This way the times already there.

  • Places we're going and people we're seeing...This Sunday we are going to the Trails West Festival in St. Joseph, MO.  Big Daddy Weave is having a free concert.  Mr. Daddy and I are so excited.

  • My favorite thing this week was...The beginning of the school year went fairly smooth.

  • My kiddos favorite thing this week was...Bee liked going to the music meet and greet.  Bug liked showing her folder to Mr. Daddy at the end of the day.

  • Things I'm working on...I'm trying to make my blog better by posting more regularly.

  • I'm grateful for...I'm grateful for new opportunities for extra curricular activities for the girls.

  • I'm praying for...I'm praying for peace and guidance about Mr. Daddy's possible promotion and our recent move.
