Our Week of Homeschool – Getting Closer To Normal

Well this week wasn’t the worst but it wasn’t the best. We did have a good week for the most part with school. One day we missed because my daughter was sick with a fever and had a sore throat. So I had to take her in and make sure she didn’t have strep. Now once again she has another fever. I really need to invest in a lysol bubble. I know next week won’t be normal but I am sure hoping she is better before the Holiday. I am really hoping that after next week, our routines will be normal again. I miss the routine we had. I know the kids need the structure too.

Our First Week of School

I can’t believe it is already that time of year for our full schedule. Our first week of school went pretty well. We are still getting use to our full days now. All in all it was nice to get back into routine. Tuesday I kicked off the morning with school pictures and I made the kids a special treat. It was a Gingerbread Man cookie (Chocolate Chip) with frosting, I had put 1st Day of School on it, as well as their grades this year. I can’t say that my son was really thrilled to start. My daughter was really excited.

Marine Biology 2nd Edition Advantage Set Review

One of my favorite classes in High School was Marine Biology. I was so fascinated with the ocean life, and at one time wanted to become a Marine Biologist. So much is undiscovered in the Ocean yet that I find the new discoveries so very fascinating. My son also has a love of learning about animals, so when this review was offered I had to jump on it. For this review I received the Marine Biology 2nd Edition Advantage Set and a Marine Biology 2nd Edition Audio CD from Apologia Educational Ministries. This particular set is for High School. In the Advantage Set I received the Student Text Book, The Student Notebook, and the Test and Solutions Manual.

#NOTBackToSchoolDay Festivities

This year I wanted to do something special for the kids and I wanted to make it something we do every year. I thought that September 1st would be a great day to celebrate NOT Back to School. I had talked it over with a another homeschooling family and she agreed that it would be fun. Each year we will plan something a little different, but a couple things will remain the same. We had a fun long list of things we wanted to do, however, a little shopping kind of put a crimp in some of the activities. I was on a mission to find a black leotard with a skirt for my daughters dance class and Target didn’t have my daughters size. So I panicked. Thank goodness Kohl’s at the mall still had some leotards with skirts available in her size. I was in and out of there quickly. We start our full schedule next Tuesday.  I suppose your wondering when I will get to the festivities……ok here we go.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Day – Field Trip

Sunday we decided to take my daughter to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Day. She has been wanting to go since we started learning about Laura Ingalls Wilder earlier this year. Laura Ingalls Wilder days was held at Heritage Hill Historical Center in Green Bay. The hype of this was the fact that the actors were there from the show Little House on the Prairie. I must say that I was really disappointed because one we really didn’t see the actors and two I wasn’t going to spend money just to get an autograph. The second reason was I expected it to be more. Really it was just like any other day at Heritage Hill. I thought there would be tents and a lot more hands on activities but there wasn’t. I don’t think we will go again next year. My daughter had fun so that is what matters.
