The Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ Entry #11

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

 

In my life this week…

Baseball, baseball, rain, and more baseball.  Baseball season is in full swing around here.  Opening day was supposed to be on Saturday, but it was rained out…so we are heading to the baseball field for ds9’s first game tonight.  He is beyond excited :)

In our homeschool this week…

We are on week 30 in most of our subjects.  Only six weeks to go :)  I am preparing for a small homeschool convention that’s coming up this weekend…and getting excited about our plans for next year.

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

Lots of baseball practices and games on the horizon…and dh and I have plans for two date nights this week! 

My favorite thing this week was…

Going outside in short sleeves, and not getting goosebumps from the cold :)  It has been a very strange spring around here.  We have had many, many days of cold, chilly and often rainy weather…with one or two days of warm, sunny weather interspersed in between.  So I am very thankful when we get a warm, sunny day to enjoy :)

What’s working/not working for us…

Puppy behavior :).  Our puppy is a very sweet girl…she loves to be cuddled and petted, and she is very cute.  But she has entered the nipping and chewing phase of puppyhood.  I am hoping it’s a really short phase :).

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I read a short article about commonplace books this weekend, and I am intrigued.  According to the article, a commonplace book is simply a book where you write down favorite quotes and passages from books that you are reading.  I may have to look into starting a commonplace book for myself…

A photo to share…

A commonplace book sounds interesting. I may have to look into one for myself. Thanks for sharing!
