The Homeschool Mother's Journal/Weekly Wrap-Up

In my life this week......Sunday was Princess P's First Holy Communion. It was an exciting day and she was very eager to start her day. Lego Man had a make up soccer game this week.

It was brutal. The other team was much more advanced. I'm still trying to figure out how our park and recs program divides up the kids. It seems like some teams/coaches are stacked extremely well with players while others have all the newbies. Somehow it just doesn't seem quite right. We had a tornado warning in our county yesterday. I did notice a very eerie haze for a little bit, but thankfully we were safe. After all the dress making cleaning, and party prepping, I have been enjoying my down time.

In our homeschool this week....back to school! Last week was a mini vacation for the kids. Mama had way too much to do! We are slowly finishing up our lessons.We will continue with Math, English/Grammar, and Reading. I need to start preparing the unit studies that the kids want to learn about. First I need to find the library cards that are missing! Oh where, oh where have my the library cards gone?  Saint Anthony, we could use a little help with that.

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may my library cards which has been lost.
At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor, I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God.
 We have finally finished our Georgia state study. I did make a peach pie, but we passed it onto the grandparents. We are not big peach pie eaters here. We like cherry better. We are finishing up our Ancient Roman Empire study. My goal is to be done with that next week.

What I am reading....nothing! I need to get to the library for more books.

What the kids are reading.... Lego Man is reading Pinocchio. 

We found a wonderful copy at from our used library sale. It was published in 1955 and has wonderful sketches in it. After Lego Man started reading the book, he came to me and said that Pinocchio is like a little boy that doesn't listen. he's going to get into a lot of trouble. Hmmm... a wonderful lesson to learn!
Princess P is reading the Magic Tree House books. We have the entire series thanks to thrift stores, library sales and grandma.

Now that she has her glasses reading isn't as difficult for her. Yeah!

What I am working on.... I am still trying to locate a location for our Catholic CCM homeschool co-op. I have contacted the churches in our area and so far we have received no from all but one. The church that said yes was so nice but they are too small for our group. I am contacting our catholic church again and praying we will be able to use the hall. I would appreciate your prayers!

What Princess P and I are working on.....Princess P made her first skirt all by herself. Now she has been bugging to make another skirt. She even suggested starting a business making skirt and dresses for girls. I have been debating on having a giveaway  on the blog with one of her skirts. Do you feel there is a need for modest girls skirts?

What I am praying for...our country that we may find our way back to God, the families in Oklahoma as they begin their long journey to recovery, and our facility search.
