Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share... If you're still putting together curriculum choices for the coming year, or starting to think ahead beyond that, I recommend checking out the Homeschool Moms Share list of favorites at Teach Beside Me. The most recent list is Favorite History and Geography Curriculum. And a couple of my favorites are on the list - can you guess what they are?

Not so good news: I had developed a toothache which reached critical mass proportions early in the week, so I went to the dentist on Thursday morning. Found out that a new filling won't solve the problem, and I will need a root canal and a crown. Seeing the estimate for the crown and hearing how much the root canal will cost wasn't that much fun either. Boo. I was in horrible pain late Thursday and all day Friday, but thankfully today has been a bit better.
One of my favorite things this week... Getting my new camera! (I still have to figure out all the extra features though.) Here's a silly selfie I took to celebrate!
Things I'm working on... I guess I'll separate my 5 Weekly Goals from my HMJ this week, but I actually did work on most of them. What I need to work on is my posts for the Blog Hop that starts next Monday, which is why I decided to post the HMJ on the weekend. Good news: I did get some stuff on my list done. Not so good news: There were a couple things I didn't even work on!

Good news: I wrote about A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander which I LOVED. She is one of my new favorite authors! Not so good news: Just finished Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy - Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan, and I have to say I do not know why Lathan is so highly praised as a Jane Austen Fan Fiction author. It puzzles me, frankly, because I didn't think this book was anything to get very excited about on any level. Pretty big disappointment.
