The Homeschool Mother’s Journal – 10

In My Life This Week…

I had a stupendous week.  We worked with our new schedule, went to soccer practice, and spent time together as a family.  Super awesome.

In Our Homeschool This Week…

While I don’t think we necessarily accomplished a whole lot, we got everything done that I had scheduled.  Do you know what that felt like?  Uber amazingness.  That’s what it felt like.  I don’t know that we’ve ever done everything on the lesson plan for a full week.

Granted, this was a relatively light week, but still…

Places We’re Going and People We’re Seeing…

We had a short park play date this week.  Babydoll had quite a bit of soccer practice as well.  She also had a game today.

Next week we’re going to the library, a dairy farm, and to a friend’s house for lunch.

My favorite thing this week was…

As silly as it may sound, I absolutely positively loved using our new schedule.  Not one single day did I feel stressed out that we needed to be working on school.  We worked out butts off when Vince was at work, and when he was home, we didn’t.

Homeschool Questions/Thoughts I Have…

We haven’t really concentrated on a foreign language thusfar, other than getting Babydoll on the waiting list for a Chinese school next year.  She was learning Chinese at her school in WA, and loved it.

That, however, is something I’m not really counting on as it’s really popular, and I don’t know that I want to spend my Saturday in B’ham.

Do any of you use {or know someone who uses} Rosetta Stone’s homeschool language programs?  I know Rosetta Stone is supposed to be super, and they allow you to make five payments on your program, but I have yet to know anyone {you know, “know”] that has used it.

Babydoll posted this on her blog a while ago; I love it.
