Homeschool Mother's Journal: 15 July 2011 (Last Summer Edition)

15 July 2011
The Homeschool Mother's Journal


In my life this week…

Since we are on summer vacation the last two weeks with R&R and extended family (MIL & Friend) coming in from the States--we have had a super busy!

Since they have never been to Germany (extended family) we took a trip to Edelweiss (in Garmisch, Germany). It was so beautiful and I never get tired of visiting that area.

In our homeschool this week…

Haven't done anything with our homeschool room or schedule this last two weeks, but this coming week I will have time to at least plan out 4 weeks, if not the whole first term. We will start back up again on the 25th of July.

I believe we have everything we need to start this next school year...


Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Just won a book recently and I can't WAIT to review it!! I made a post the other day about Living Math and this book is JUST the book I need. ;) But the key to this math book is that it has a biblical perspective focus...which I know I will love.

I am excited. Thank you so much to blog host of the giveaway, Lee Ann Garfias at Whatever State I Am... for the book, Revealing Arithmetic: Math Concepts from a Biblical Worldview.


I am inspired by…

Mountains (God's Beauty)




Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

Well, for the last two weeks, we've been in the lower area of Bavaria, Germany. Mostly in Garmisch. Photos to come! ;)

We want to go see Car 2, but not sure if I want to face the crowds (it's free and only one showing (military theater). So, I think we might just wait for it on Blu-ray.

Our oldest we be going to his first Youth Conference and we are both excited for him to go and see what God has in store for him and his life. I pray he has a great experience, both spiritually and mentally.


My favorite thing this week was…

Having my husband home to spend our 14th anniversary together. ;)





What’s working/not working for us…

-Hubby finishing out the deployment.
-Homeschool plans coming together.
-Soccer/Flag football coming up.
-Pick up where we left off on our Ladies Bible Study.
-Car is A-OKAY now, four new tires.
-But, window on passenger side of our truck--slow to rise/gets stuck. UGH.
*so many more, not enough space. :)

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, NAME THEM ONE BY ONE! ;)
