The Homeschool Mother's Journal

The Homeschool Mother's JournalIn my life this week... This week was really cold.  We had rolling blackouts and realized how cold our 115 year old house can get, even if the power is only out for 30 minutes!  The kids were hoping for snow, but all we got was some freezing rain.

In our homeschool this week... We took a break from formal work this week.  After the freezing rain, the kids went outside and explored outside.  They (Logan) knocked down the icicles from the walkway roof and were fascinated with the ice covered plants.  

Places we're going and people we're seeing... All of our activities were canceled for the week, so we stayed home and relaxed.

My favorite thing this week was...Warming up when the electricity would come back on.

What's working/not working for us...As we did no formal work this week, the week was filled with exploring, imaginative play, tv and video games.  It all worked.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have... I am just thinking about getting this week planned.  I am hoping our next review, Latin Alive, arrives so we can dig in.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share... I really want to make this Monkey Bread Recipe this week, using the dinner roll recipe I love!



  1. Latin Alive just arrived at my house Friday. I'm in Maine. I'm happy it's here. My 14 year old - not so much. ;-) (Stopping by from the TOS Crew blog walk)

  2. It is so nice as homeschooling parents that we can have weeks of no formal school. I hope that in the past couple of weeks your weather has warmed up. Our sure has.
    I am from the TOS Crew and am now following you. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts. Please follow me and thank you if you already are! Have a wonderful week.
