Homeschool Highlights - A Busy Week Two

This post contains affiliate links - using affiliate links from Homeschool Coffee Break helps fuel this blog and our homeschool - thank you!

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!

I need a lot of caffeine today, and I should really have put it in a travel mug. This week has been very busy, and I'm under a time crunch today, so this will be a very brief, and slightly late, highlight post! Link up the news of your week at the end so I can visit you when I have a few minutes!

Homeschool news  . . . I know we're only two weeks in to the Official school year, but I'm so pleased that Kennady has stayed right on top of all her schoolwork and has needed almost no prompting from me to do that. Yay! Today may be the day she falls behind, because we have weekend plans that will likely be cutting her school day short as she gets ready.

Other news . . . Last weekend was quiet, although the hubster and I paid a visit to the In The Streets block party in Frederick on Saturday. It was crowded - which makes me very uncomfortable - but other than that, a very good time, with a lot of good music and food. We weren't there long, just walked around for a bit and made sure I got some ice cream!

The week has been full of all our usual activities, plus my once-a-month homeschool moms get-together yesterday evening. So I had only short blocks of time to work on getting ready for this weekend's plans - attending UpRise 2017 in Shippensburg starting this evening.  I'm leaving work early today to finish getting ready, so I'm cutting my Highlights post a bit short!

On my blogs last week . . .

And on my book blog, Just A Second:

Teaser Tuesday/First Chapter First Paragraph - My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley: Lily's Dilemma
What I'm Reading - September 11, 2017
Scripture and a Snapshot - Leaves
Recent Reads - Beyond All Dreams

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 Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson, which I'll be reviewing soon. I've been reading:

My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley: Lily's Dilemma by Andrea Boeshaar
Lady Susan by Jane Austen

A parting shot . . . I guess this is a preview of what will be on my Virtual Fridge next week. Never too old for Frozen coloring pages!

It's great when teens stay on top of their work without reminders.
