Homeschool Highlights - The Week with Pi and Spring Weather on Homeschool Coffee Break @

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 news  . . . Another very busy week in which Kennady was on her own in getting schoolwork done. I've had a long to-do list every day, and even though I was home all day Wednesday, we didn't spend much time on school together. We did do a review or debrief of the Victus Study Skills Program that we finished awhile ago and had a quick discussion of which of the skills she especially needed to focus on right now. This week and next are a little easier in terms of the amount of homework from co-op classes, so we'll need to work hard at Consumer Math and the Fix-It! Grammar that we are currently reviewing.

Other news . . . One thought from the weekend: I hate Daylight Saving Time. I've noticed that my family is on worship team every year when we spring forward and lose an hour too, which seems a little unfair.

On Monday evening I attended the meeting of the Steering Committee for our homeschool fellowship, and pitched my ideas for a homeschool curriculum fair for our county. There is no state curriculum fair this year so we're hoping to pull something together for at least the local homeschool community. Wish us luck!

Had to have the car serviced on Tuesday, which didn't take all that long, but threw off my tight scheduled morning so that I had a shorter than usual afternoon in which to get anything done. The rest of the week has been busy as well - choir, work, shopping, co-op. We had an Open House at our co-op which added to my busy-ness level, but it turned out well. And of course it was also Pi Day, so that was a lovely excuse to enjoy home baked butter tarts - the closest thing to actual PIE I could manage!

What I Loved This Week . . . we're in the middle of another very fun segment in our Creative Writing class at co-op. We're watching a movie together and specifically looking for the phases of the Hero's Journey. The movie? Disney Pixar's Up!

On my blogs last week . . .

And on my book blog, Just A Second:

Wordless Wednesday - One More Snow Day
Scripture and a Snapshot - Better Is One Day

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've been reading:

The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery

A parting shot . . . Six flats. Six!!! Perhaps someday, but not this day. Glad I'm only singing it and not playing!

The only homeschool curriculum fair I know of around here is in the next state over (so not that far in these small new England states!) but is completely faith based and I wished we had something that at the very least included secular based learning opportunities. Good luck pulling something together!

The butter Tarts look delightful! Thanks for having a link up. I think this is my first time here.
Blessings, Dawn

Great week! The tarts look yummy. Just curious, with the new link platform you can't see the links without going back over like you're linking up that a glitch? I thought my link had been deleted and went back to add it again and there it is, but you can't see it or the others from your main post.

Kym said...

Mother of 3 - thank you! We're hopeful and a little nervous as we plan our first event like this!

Dawn - thanks for dropping by!

Joesette - I think there is a glitch, because *I* can't see the links without clicking as if I'm adding one. Something is different with my link-ups this weekend, so either I messed it up or there's a glitch. Thanks for the heads-up, I'm checking into it!

I love comments! It's like visiting over a virtual cup of coffee.
