Homeschool Mother’s Journal

Homeschool Mothers Journal

In my life this week…

We celebrated Victoria Day by watching the parade on television. 

In our homeschool this week…

As a family we discussed our goals for next year (and the rest of this year). 

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

My sister (and some of her kids) came over to work on a secret project we are working on (to be revealed soon). We had our weekly playdate and visit with Jenn and her kidlets. 

My favorite thing this week was…

Brushing my daughter's hair and having her brush mine. She is finally old enough to brush my hair without getting the brush all tied up in a knot. 

What’s working/not working for us

We need to rearrange our home again to create some new learning spaces. I can't wrap my head around making our spaces work for our needs. (Time to get creative again.)

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

I have been thinking about our homeschool quite a bit this month and I have decided that I want us to focus more on learning, having fun, exploring, creating, etc. than on checking things off of a to-do list.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

This is a crocheted basket that I made for my mama for Mother's Day. She loved it. I had fun making it.

Finally, a girl…

after all these years of buying and creating for boys.

Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love my boys (all 4 of them). They are easy to buy for. They are easy to please. Now, I finally have a little girl. I cannot tell you how thankful I am that pink has entered my life.

Hosanna is 2.5 and she is finally old enough to appreciate girly stuff, so this year I have been hard at work.

I have also been hard at work making some secret projects for all the boys and my nieces and nephews too, but I will share about those in another post (soon, I promise).

I was able to purchase the most adorable baby doll bed and high chair for my daughter to use with her baby. You have to promise not to tell her about them. We are hiding them and I can’t wait to see her face on Christmas morning. Here are the pictures from the ad…

I got inspired one night to create some clothes for my daughter’s baby doll. I made a baby blanket, dress, hat, and some booties for her baby and another blanket for her baby doll bed. I crocheted all of them without a pattern. I am so excited at my progress with my crocheting this year.

I would love to hear what you are making this Christmas.
