Homeschool Highlights - The Week With More College Stuff 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!

It's been a whirlwind week in some ways. The weekend started with the family going out for lunch on Saturday to celebrate Father's Day. He got a complimentary brownie sundae and shared it with all of us!

Then Kennady and I went to a bridal shower on Saturday. One of her very close friends who graduated just last year is getting married in a couple weeks. I featured Kennady's gift on the Virtual Fridge this week:

Sunday was pretty quiet, with Landon gone on his company's annual fishing trip and not home until Monday night. On Monday I was away all day at a church conference, which was honestly such a nice break from being at work! I really enjoy my job, but the day off was a good switch to routine.

Tuesday and Wednesday were both very busy days, as Kennady and I had work responsibilities, I had physical therapy appointments, I had a couple of homeschool oversight reviews, and we had some college and drivers license things to look after.  On Tuesday afternoon, Kennady had her first road test for her drivers license. She didn't pass, but was able to get in for a second try on Wednesday. And on Wednesday she did great and is now a licensed driver!

But her fancy license card will come in the mail. Just a piece of paper for now. 
Also on Tuesday, we paid another visit to the college, looking after another step in getting Kennady enrolled for her classes. She needs to take one music prerequisite class, and hopefully we can get that out of the way during the summer as an online class.

On Wednesday evening, the boys went with our church group to serve ice cream in town, and Kennady went out with friends, while the hubster and I hit the road for a weekend trip to visit some family and friends in Canada. We're on a little vacation and letting our big kids - all adults or very nearly adults - manage at home for a couple of days. By the time we get back home, Kennady will be gone to camp for a week, so I will probably be pretty lonely next week!

What's Working . . . I really hope that physical therapy is working! I've been having a lot of trouble with stiff, sore joints recently, and in particular one hip. It's a flare-up of bursitis, which I've had before, and we're trying physical therapy to deal with it. I think it's helping, but it's still very painful so I occasionally have my doubts. My goal is to be able to walk through the caves we visit during our Summer of Kennady trips without too much trouble.

I recommend . . . looking at for homeschool curriculum, resource, and record-keeping.  Whether you're looking for some fun educational ideas for your summer break, or you're hunting down curriculum for the next school year, has that and more! All courses, all subjects - for your whole family, and no limits. During June, you can sign up using the coupon code FIREFLY and get your first month for just $5.

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 finished and reviewed The Pink Bonnet: True Colors: Historical Stories of American Crime by Liz Tolsma, and I've been reading:

The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse
An Artless Demise (A Lady Darby Mystery) by Anna Lee Huber
The Red Door Inn (Prince Edward Island Dreams Book 1): A Novel by Liz Johnson

A parting shot . . . This guy. Working real hard and taking his job super seriously.

He's smoking! haha

When it was finally okay for me to go, he half-heartedly swung the "Slow" side of the sign up in the air and casually pointed. Then went back to this stance. Tough day at work.

Love the start with coffee! Enjoyed the peek in your week. :)

Destiny said...

Our oldest is hoping to get her license soon. Prayers your physical therapy will work well.

Kristen of A Mom's Quest to Teach said...

Congrats on your daughter getting her license! (And I love the photos you shared of the hardworking road guy.)

Sally Matheny said...

Ahh, thanks for sharing a slice of your life with us. Praying the physical therapy keeps helping. We have one taking the class work part of driver's ed. now. He didn't score very well on "Breaking" or "Passing" so I'm a little leery of when he finally gets behind the wheel!

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