The Homeschool Mother's Journal - 4

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...
I'm thoroughly enjoying the Biblestudy on The Power of Motherhood that I'm working through.

In our homeschool this week...

We took a day "off" from what we've been doing and did a quick character lesson on Initiative.  The girls were less than thrilled, but we instituted a few new rules and such to work on taking initiative and having a servant's heart. I'm hopeful that this will decrease the nagging AND cut down on how often I hear "but it's not my turn, I did it LAST time . . ." we shall see . . . 


Places we're going and people we're seeing...
The big girls had great fun bowling with Daddy. A won 2 of the 3 games!

My favorite thing this week was...
We started playing "memory" with Little Bit. It's so fun to see her figure out the whole matching concept . . .

What's working/not working for us...
Listening to the 2nd volume of The Story of the World would work better if we weren't staying home more right now. It's much easier to sit and quietly listen to a CD when you're in a car and can't be doing other things LOL. But I still think it's a great option for us to get an overview of world history this year.


Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...

Trying to decide about homeschool conventions for this year. I've attended CHAP the last 2 years and LOVE it. . . but now this year there's also the Northeast Homeschool Convention. They're similar distances away from us, and both have speakers I like, but neither has a "deal breaker, can't be missed" speaker. What to do, what to do . . . wonder if I could convince dh that I need to go to BOTH of them, hmmmm . . . (this means convincing him not only to spend the money on the fees for both BUT to keep all three kids for a total of 4 1/2 days if I were to go to both of them. I suspect it's the kid-watching that will be the deal-breaker for him, hee hee).

I have never been to a homeschool convention. I guess we started with ABeka and have stayed there. I have been interested in doing a bit of changing, just not sure what. Maybe I will look into conventions in our area, too. Blessings!
