The Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~3-2-12

I wrote this a while back and missed the link party, but thought I would post it anyway!  I have a tendency to write posts, not finish them or think they have to be perfect. But today I'm posting imperfect posts!  Yay!

In my life this week…
The Homeschool Mother's JournalMy “baby” turned 14 years old this week!  He’s been counting down the days until his birthday but more importantly his party.  He’s tried every year to get his friends together and have an overnight party with outdoor activities and video game marathons and this year it’s happening. Tonight his friends will all come over and they will have a wiener roast, play capture the flag, football, video games and who knows what else?

In our homeschool this week…
We had a good week this week.  I know it’s almost spring but I am just now getting stuff really organized for the year!  Back in August we were gone 3 weeks and it really put a kink in my planning and we’ve been really just “doing the next thing” all year.  That’s fine, but I don’t think we were moving like I think we should.  So this week I dusted off the old Homeschool Tracker Software and got everything up to date. This is what his daily list looks like:
8th grade outline
I always have to make a list like this so I don’t miss anything when I’m planning lessons.  It really helps!  I know it looks like a lot but many things don’t take but a couple of minutes.  Then of course somethings take a while, like Algebra!!
