School has been sooo good!!!

So far this year I haven't missed a beat!!! I've even been able to do the fun hands on things that I thought I could never do!!! Thank you MFW!!! Our lives are pretty chaotic right now, so it's nice that this one thing is going so well!!

My husband was laid off at the end of June and we are still searching for God's will and a job. So, to anyone who happens to stop by and read this please take a moment and pray that for us too. Thanks and may God return the blessings to you!!

Homeschool Started 2 weeks ago!!!

We officially became a homeschool Aug. 3rd!!!! So I felt obligated to start some school. So we did and it was a great and gradual start! We are using MFW Adventures this year along with Saxon Math, Apologia Astronomy, Natural Speller, and I'm sure I'm forgetting lots here! So far we love it!!!! K asked me today(while she is laying in the bed with a bowl in front of her face in case she throws up) if we could do school today in her bed. It's Sunday!! She was disappointed that we were not doing any school today!! That's a GREAT start to a year!!!

Having a great school week!

Thanks to a friend of mine who spurred me on, we've had a great week so far. I'm learning to accept that if I don't get it done first thing in the day, it's ok! The funny thing is I use to do school in the afternoon ALL the time, now I am learning to relax a little and if it fits better in the morning, then we do it in the morning, if it fits better in the afternoon, then we do it in the afternoon!!! Yeah for letting that go and relaxing some with school! K has not been complaining about doing any school either, but I think that has had to do more with the weather we've been having. Anyway, today we did Saxon Math, Easy Grammar, and A Reason for Handwriting (which K is loving, and it is K's weakest area!!). K also read several books and practiced piano! I need to try to get some History in tomorrow, but not going to stress over it!! Hope you have had a blessed day too!

I'm soo behind!!

I can't believe how far behind I am! I am hoping that better planning for next year will help me. I did great with Kindergarten, but 1st grade has been a challenge. I used a complete curriculum for K and for 1st grade I've been eclectic. I'm not sure if that's the problem or if it's because K is so far ahead with reading that I've kicked back. Anyway, whatever the reason, I need to fix it for next year!
