In our homeschool this week…
We are slowly catching up after a week that I was away to see my ill father/grandpa. I didn't take my older two boys while traveling, they stayed with dad. They did do most of their work, but somehow they didn't "find" the CD for Ben's math, so we are trying to catch up. I recently asked on FB how everyone deals with this (getting behind), but I mostly got answers like don't try to catch up and just start where we left off...which makes sense (even if it was just a week).
I will probably not finish this school year as early as I thought. As we moved from Germany to TX during the holidays and STILL living in a hotel by March proved to be a difficult task to move on in our schooling...and not having all our BOOKS if completely driving me bonkers!! It's been a struggle to say the least. :)
I MISS MY PRINTER!! ;) It should be getting better though...we move in our home by the end of this week! YAY!
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
We went to our local library finally (near the house) to get our library cards!! Fantastic!! Also they have a teen meeting every Tuesday for board games and such, and I hope it's a great group of kids and then our oldest can meet new friends in the area.
Visited the O.P. Schnabel Park finally! The FUN we will have!!!!
There is a local Y.M.C.A. there...I need to check out the prices (and if we can afford it!)
And went furniture shopping on Saturday!! New bedroom set, living room, and bunk beds for the kiddos...and my aunt is giving us a FREE dining room set!! AMEN!
Now we just need a refrigerator. Why so expensive??? One sales person replied, "New tax on appliances." Really...didn't know that. :/
My favorite thing this week was…
1. Saying my Marriage Vows again to my Love. (More to come in a different post)
2. Knowing that we'll be moving soon into our new home!! I can't wait for it. ;)
Questions/thoughts I have…
Is it okay to use the A Beka books I have when my oldest was in 6th grade (3 years ago) and use it next year for my other son (who is going into the sixth grade)?? I would have to order new English book,Spelling, but otherwise the Science and Math, are reusable -- but do I want to do that??
Things I’m working on…
Reading my Bible every day. It's easier now that I have downloaded You Version on my phone.
1. For my Church Ladies Book Club: The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers
2. For my Sunday School Meeting: Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham Jr.
3. For Parenting Skills Tune up: Full-Time Parenting - A Guide to Family-Based Discipleship by Israel Wayne (just received it recently)
