Just when I thought everything was going well and we were making some progress….BAM got slapped in the face with my son having seizures. I was going to write about what our homeschool week was like last week but instead I have decided to write about what is going on.
It’s that time of year where I would rather be bear foot then to have to wear socks and shoes. The only thing is my heals crack and are really dry. I don’t like to use those pumice stones, as I don’t like sitting there to scrub the dry stuff off my feet. I was really excited when the GREEMU by Devonian came up for review. I wanted to see just how it would work on my heels. GREEMU is an alternative to emu oil. It is a 100% natural blend of plant oils.
One of the things we really enjoy in our history class is to read different biographies about people from the past. YWAM Publishing has a nice variety of different biographies of both men and women of history. For this particular review we received the book Heroes of History – Christopher Columbus and a digital copy of the Unit Study Curriculum Guide. This book is for ages 10 and older.
This week has been a pretty good week. We made good time with book work. We had a great Homeschool Theme Day this week. We took off Friday from our regular day to have some fun with Earth Day. My son also started a new program this week. I also changed how I do work with the kids. I use to alternate between the two and it seems to make my day take longer. So now Mondays and Tuesdays I start with my son and get his work done and proceed to my daughter. Then Thursday and Friday I work with my daughter and then my son.
One of the things that I have been pushing to work on with the the kids is writing. For me it has been hard to find something that works on both sentences and grammar. I was really excited to be able to review a curriculum called Writers In Residence by Apologia Educational Ministries. This is geared for children in grades 4 – 8.
