Homeschool Weekly - No Spring Break Edition on Homeschool Coffee Break @

In our homeschool . . . Sorry, kids - no spring break for us! I insisted that both kids really put their nose to the grindstone this past week, after having assessed where we are truly behind schedule and where we're okay. I think they both did a good job of it overall, but I guess I'll be nagging them quite a bit for the next couple months! I've been cautious about doing reviews during this time of year, since both kids already have plenty on their plates, but look at the list that we're working on anyway!

Math Mini-Courses from A+ Tutorsoft - Kennady is working on a couple of these courses, and they are review and reinforcement for her, so it's not terribly time consuming.
Book and Unit Study - Heroes of History: Orville Wright from YWAM Publishers - this is some extra reading that Kennady is doing, mostly outside of her regular school time.
ARTistic Pursuits book Sculpture Technique Model  - fun project for Kennady (and me!)
Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. - of course these are just pure fun for Kennady!
Poetry Memorization resources from IEW - so far this has been for me as I've been working my way through the introduction materials and getting familiar with it, but very soon (like Monday!) it will find its way into our regular routine. 

What's working . . . thankfully, the few changes I made to the order of the science course have helped Kennady out a lot. Landon is getting through Science more quickly now as well, and I think the kids are both settled into a better routine and attitude about working hard on school.

In other news . . . our week was busy, as usual, but nothing very unusual. Well, maybe the weather is unusual. It's like it can't quite move on from winter. We've had some lovely warm days, and then we see that there's the possibility of snow this weekend.

I recommend . . . I'm featuring resources from the Schoolhouse Store this month, and offering a giveaway of two digital bundles especially for those of you homeschooling your teens. Visit my High School Lesson Book Link Party from this week to get the details and the coupon code!

A parting shot . . . my attempts to capture a bit of the beautiful sunrise we witnessed on the way to the airport. One good thing about having to be out on the road that early in the morning!

We're at the same point. We were supposed to go away for Spring Break, but our trip got cancelled due to hubby's work issues. That meant heads down and noses to grindstones...Luke made a LOT of progress and may actually be done before his graduation! LOL

What a pretty sunrise! We don't take a spring break either. My kids are content to work a bit each day and since we wouldn't be going anywhere anyway it's not that big of a deal to us.
