Welcome to Homeschool Highlights! 
This weekly link-up is your opportunity to share some highlights of what is happening in your homeschool and in your world each week. If you write a wrap-up post at the end of each week, like I've been doing, we'd love to see what you're busy with from week to week. If you'd like to pick a favorite post from your week that spotlights a resource or activity in your homeschool that you'd like to tell others about, we're interested in those too. I'm keeping the guidelines as simple as I can, and they will appear at the bottom of each post, along with the link tool. I look forward to getting to know you, and I hope this will be a source of encouragement and good ideas for all of us.

Grab a cup of coffee and let's get started!

Homeschool news  . . . Everything seems to be coming along pretty nicely, except we always seem to have one subject we're behind on. It's not always the same subject, but there's always one. This week it's still Biology. I feel like once we get that going again, one of the other subjects will probably suffer! I guess as long as we rotate fairly, everything will even out in the end.

We're still hunting up supplies for a couple of the projects in Creating A Masterpiece that Kennady wanted to try, but she did spend some time making what she referred to as an "Okayish Fish". I think this clownfish is more than just okay, but I guess it made a cute caption for her Instagram story!

Other news . . . last weekend the kids were at a winter retreat with their church youth group. They had a great time and we had a quiet house for a couple of days. With fewer people to feed it was a great chance to get take-out, and to go out for dinner, so we did both! On Saturday, after going out for our Valentine's dinner, the hubster and I also went to a meeting and dessert time for my work.

On Monday evening I got together with some homeschooling friends for our monthly Encouragement Group meeting. Which reminds me - I need to add a new mom that joined us to our Facebook group! I'd better go do that next!

It was sort of disappointing to find out that the new dishwasher I ordered won't be available until next week, but at least I can now schedule the delivery date to one that will hopefully suit us.

And I'm officially taking a break from 34 Weeks of Clean for now. Just a break until some of the extra busy-ness of this month is past. Visit Michele at Family, Faith and Fridays if you want to know what the current cleaning project is! I'll catch up with you all later!

On my blogs last week . . .


Just A Second is where I share book reviews and other book-related things, and update on what's on my bookshelf. This week I finished and reviewed A Christmas Valentine by Jamie Carie, reviewed one I finished last week - A Perilous Undertaking (A Veronica Speedwell Mystery) by Deanna Raybourn - and I've been reading:
A parting shot . . . heart-themed Jamberry wraps for Valentine's Day.

Your daughter did a fantastic job on that clownfish piece! Wow, it looks beautiful!

By the way...loving the Jamberry nails you have there. I need a good alternative to nail polish, something that doesn't chip the day after. I've heard mixed things about the Jamberry wraps, but the overall consensus seems positive. Are they easy to apply and do they last?

I LOVE the clownfish!!

Mother of 3 said...

That is one amazing sunrise and your daughter's fish is more than Okayish; but I think we're always hardest on ourselves.

BARBIE said...

I am looking forwad to getting started on Creating A Masterpiece, more so than my son. Your daughter's fish is great.

The Okayish Fish looks great! And woo hoo on the LLR! It's a slippery slope, lol. I blogged about LuLaRoe recently. Who knew I was starting an addiction?? One doesn't think of leggings as a gateway drug, LOL!

The Faithful Homeschool said...

I agree, those fish are more than okayish!! And the "behind" thing is always a plague in our homeschool! Blessings to you as you catch up!

lovely lovely sunset that was Kym.

Kelly - wanted to reply about the Jamberry wraps . . . it was a learning curve with applying them, but they are not difficult to do at all. It just took a long time the first couple times, but I'm pretty quick now. And they do last a lot longer than nail polish.

Shecki - LLR really is a slippery slope! The gal I usually buy from keeps saying she is "obsessed" with certain styles and with every new print. But it is an obsession, I need to guard my heart. LOL

Thanks for all the compliments on the Okayish Fish! LOL That's the official name of that piece now!
