The Homeschool Mother's Journal... April 15, 2011


In my life this week...
  Migraine times 4 days including 2 days of pain and 3 days of severe symptoms.

In our homeschool this week...
  Had a hard time keeping everyone on task between outside activities and illness (mine).

Places we're going and people we're seeing...
  We enjoyed 2 hours at the dentist's office, taking in my daughter's soccer game with my parents and brother-in-law, and visiting with my sister.

My favorite thing this week was...
  My darling daughter appears to have a job!  Hip-Hip-Hooray!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...
  I have a student who isn't a reader finish The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in a week.  Question: How do you know for sure the student actually read the book?  Maybe (s)he finally found a book (s)he likes... We just finished a book study and this book was chosen by the student to read for enjoyment (meaning no questions, vocabulary, discussions other than "how's it going? Who is doing what?  Wow, what do you think about that?).

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