Homeschool Highlights - Easter Weekend on Homeschool Coffee Break @  #HomeschoolHighlights #homeschool

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!

Hey, the Calgary Flames made the playoffs!

Homeschool news  . . . With today being Good Friday, I'm going to be rather brief in summarizing this week's news of homeschool and other things. We did have a pretty good week of school, working mainly on Math, History, Music, and Art. We've got the High School Essay Intensive from IEW to work on, and we'll also need to really focus on getting caught up in Science. Personally, I'm behind on grading, and I'll need to find some time to work on my end of things - hopefully next week!

Other news . . . the hubster got home from his trip last Friday, and we spent Saturday running about and getting back into routines. He spent most of his day at work, as did Spencer, while Landon had a Civil Air Patrol meeting. Kennady went with me to meet an online friend who was passing through the area, and then we did some shopping.

Got to meet up with my friend Heather on Saturday

Sunday after our morning service, we helped pack and deliver "Easter baskets" as part of our outreach efforts.

The week was a full one, with meetings, choir practices, work, shopping, and even our Easter Eggstravaganza event at church on Wednesday evening. 

I recommend . . . The annual Homeschool Review Crew 5 Days of Homeschool Blog Hop which begins on Monday. Crew members are writing articles on the homeschool-related topic of their choice, so you're sure to find something to encourage and inform no matter where you are on your own homeschool adventure.

Keep track of the entire Blog Hop by checking in at the Homeschool Review Crew Blog where you'll find all the 5 Days of Homeschool posts.

5 Days of Homeschool Annual Blog Hop - 2017

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 shared an excerpt of my review of Shepherd, Potter, Spy and the Star Namer by Peggy Miracle Consolver there. And I've been reading:

A parting shot . . . Not long ago, the goldfinches finally found our bird feeder. They are trying their best to eat us out of house and home!

Are your cats doing "me-a me-a" (cat for bird?) Ours do it all the time. :)

Sheila said...

My son just started going to civil air patrol...I don't know much about it :) but he seems to really enjoy it. How long has your family been involved with it?

Mother of 3 said...

Love those bright yellow finches!

Kym Thorpe said...

Annette - at THAT point, the cats were just staring. LOL

Sheila - My son has been in CAP for 5 years, reluctant at first, but now he's reluctant to give it up! He'll stay in for another year, but after his birthday he'd have to become a Senior Member instead of a cadet and I'm not sure he'll do that.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, ladies! :-)

Those look like functional Easter baskets, very thoughtful.

Looks lovely -- especially the bird feeders and service. Those Easter baskets are clever!
