Homeschool Highlights - Blog Hop Week on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com

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 Highlights - Blog Hop Week on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com

See the quote on the mug I have the pens in? "Teenagers... now WHO thought THAT was a good idea?" Parents of teens sometimes feel that way, but of course teens are a lot of fun too!

Homeschool news  . . . As usual, our week was full of interruptions, and perhaps more than usual, but I think Kennady did well despite all that. She concentrated on Algebra and Art, did some History and some Reading, and more, but I failed in making time to get anything meaningful accomplished with Science and Writing, where we really need to do some catching up. The good news is that we have the High School Essay Intensive we're reviewing to help us out with writing, and just yesterday Nature's Beautiful Order from Memoria Press arrived, also for a review, and we're going to use that as a supplement to Biology. 

Other news . . . we had some errands to run last Saturday, and during the day my stiff, sore shoulder caused me so much pain that I made the hubster take me to the urgent care. Initially it was thought to be 'frozen shoulder' but a follow-up visit to an orthopedist and an x-ray revealed the good news (??) that it's tendinitis in the rotator cuff. I guess it is good news because the healing time should be a lot shorter, and it's very unlikely to require any surgery. In fact, with the anti-inflammatory meds I'm taking, and resting it by using a sling, it's already improved quite a bit.

On Easter Sunday, we provided the music for the early worship service at church (yes, even though I was wearing a sling I still played keyboard!) then had breakfast at church, and Kennady and Landon were involved in the music and drama during the later service. The rest of the day was mainly spent relaxing, and a good thing too, because how my shoulder hurt!!

Thanks to the shoulder, I had some help running errands and getting things done around the house this week. The piano was tuned on Monday, and on Wednesday, Spencer and Kennady came along to town to do a bit of shopping and we stopped off at the Westminster Peep Show too. (Nothing racy - it's an art show featuring the marshmallow Easter treat, and a fundraiser for the local arts council!)

I think I might be the yellow Peep with the green apron. Not entirely sure.
What I'm Learning . . .  I have learned, and am learning, a lot from my fellow Crew blogger that participated in the annual Homeschool Review Crew 5 Days of Homeschool Blog Hop this week. There were articles on many different homeschool-related topic of their choice, so you're sure to learn something too, no matter where you are on your own homeschool adventure.

Find the home page for the Blog Hop at the Homeschool Review Crew Blog where you'll find links to all the 5 Days of Homeschool bloggers.

I recommend . . . if you want something practical to do with the plastic eggs you may have left over from Easter, here's a cute idea for younger kids that I found this week: How To Teach Addition With Plastic Easter Eggs at Homeschool Preschool.

On my blogs last week . . .
And on my book blog, Just A Second:
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 The Trees Will Clap by Bonnie Mae Evans (review to follow later), and I've been reading:

I enjoyed your posts on the rewards of homeschooling teens. It can be hard work at times but I'm so glad we stayed the course through the teen years.
