Homeschool Weekly - Real Life Edition
In our homeschool... true to form, "real life" in several forms got in the way of our getting everything done that I'd planned to in our homeschool, but it was a good week anyway. Landon informed me that he was indeed right on track in his Health/Nutrition course, and he is also doing fine with World History and with Drafting. He spent a fair amount of time reading this week, as he needed to do some catching up with Literature. He got some Algebra done, but we didn't do any Grammar this week. Oops. We did have good intentions, but that doesn't count!

Kennady worked on Science, Geography, Literature, and some Math, so she is in pretty good shape. I didn't spent a great deal of time working with her because I was trying to make sure all her grades were up to date and her report card was done. No surprise - she had straight A's again.

Making a cloud in a jar.
In other news... I don't really have much to share, as it was just a rather ordinary week! Kennady did go to a sleepover party for a friend's birthday yesterday. Today is very busy - after picking up Kennady this morning, I will be taking her to a choir performance shortly. Landon is working today, and Spencer will be working this evening, while the hubster and I are going to a dinner party. We're headed in several different directions!

And Harrison had a job interview this week, and has another scheduled for this coming week, but that is his news more than mine, and we don't know much other than that he is in the running for these jobs. We're praying that he has wisdom about which offer, if they're extended, he should accept, because there are moves and many other things to consider. If he does move away, it means a lot of changes for the family... and some difficult decisions as well.

Things that made me smile... before bringing Kennady home after her sleepover party, we got to go see the horse that the friend and her mom help care for. All the girls were delighted to spend some time with the horses and each got a turn brushing. He's a beauty, isn't he?

34 Weeks of Clean...
I'm participating in a weekly challenge and link-up at Family, Faith, and Fridays but this was another easy week for me. The assignment was to tidy up our Arts and Crafts supplies and working area. Our supplies - believe it or not - are fairly well contained, and since we don't have a dedicated area for working on them at this time, I took a breather!

 During Week 15,  we're going to be tackling our Master Bedrooms! Goodness. Don't expect "before" pictures from me, that's all I can say! For the details of the assignment, go to Family, Faith, and Fridays. Join in if you haven't already, and check back next week for our progress!

I recommend... visiting all the participating blogs in this past week's Real Life Homeschool blog hop! My own series was "The Real Homeschoolers of Carroll County"
