Weekly Wrap Up (10/30/09)

Another week finished! The year is flying by. I can’t believe we’re through October already. Our week started out as a fairly typical week. Everyone is making good progress in their individual studies. My older son finished Life of Fred: Fractions this week and passed the Final Bridge on the first try! (For those unfamiliar […]

Wisdom Hunter and Shadow Government

Summary: Pastor Jason Faircloth knows what he believes. His clear faith, in fact, is why he is one of the most prominent pastors in Atlanta. He relies on it to discipline his daughter, his wife, his church. He prays daily that others would come to see God’s ways as he does. And it is about […]

Virginia Soaps and Scents

I really love special bath stuff, but I don’t often get to use it. I was so excited to see Virginia Soaps and Scents on the review list for the Homeschool Crew. Finally a review item just for me! (Though I did share with my daughter.) You may be wondering, as I was, why a […]

Sore Throat Tip

You know that feeling like you’re just starting to get a sore throat? You’re not certain that you’re getting sick, but it seems really pretty likely. I found something several years ago that usually heals my throat when I do it early enough. I have to warn you though. It tastes pretty gross. I gargle […]

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Last week came and went with no hysterics from my oldest son. Of course that led me to hope for another good week. So far, not so good. On his very first subject, he reacted first to the length of the assignment, then my request to do it neatly. I finally urged him to set […]

Sue Patrick’s Workbox System

Weekly Wrap Up (10/23/09)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Weekly Wrap Up at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. This week was not an ordinary week, but I’m beginning to realize that ordinary weeks don’t really exist. (I know it’s amazing that it has taken me this long to realize that!) Since I have failed to write a wrap-up […]

Sarah Books

I love reading historical fiction, and I have since I was a girl. My older daughter (9) has apparently inherited this love. She especially likes American history stories of the Civil War and pioneer days, and enjoys finding a series of novels that keep her occupied for a long time. When I received Sarah’s Wish […]

Creative Dusting Tool

I should mention that I really don’t like to dust. It’s one of the chores that I try to assign to my kids. My bedroom furniture is particularly difficult because it has grooves that are hard to get to. Here’s a picture of the cabinet on the front of the chest after not dusting it […]
