- Clean Slate: Planning and Dreaming for the New Year
We sort of slow step it into a routine. Making sure we get the basics done, our teeth brushed 🙂
What we’ve accomplished:
- Back to Math – I feel like if we can get that routine going first then it is all downhill.
- Driver’s Education
- SAT Prep Course work
- Back to all extracurricular – piano, keyboarding lessons, the cast list for Aladdin in drama troupe (after a wonderful production of The Little Drummer Boy in December), regular church activities (choir, handbells, missions, youth group) – after our piano gals played at the mall in early December.
- Science experiments – a whole slew of them this afternoon with Hodgepodgedad.
- Field trip – to High Museum coming up! (Lots for local homeschoolers and other winter family fun)
- Georgia State Capitol field trip (photos here and here)
In other news:
Because I have received so many questions, I created a How to Get Your Start in Essential Oils page which lists all my posts and information on how the oils have blessed us. We’ve been blessed with Young Living essential oils since last July. I have seen the interest in them grow immensely. I have talked to many friends, family members, blog friends, church members and I think that folks are simply sick and tired of being sick and tired! I have personally taught one Benefits of Essential Oils class and have another one coming up next week.
Did you miss it?
We published an American Landmarks ebook of art for all ages late last year. Perfect for American studies and field trip follow up. Or simply for the sheer love of beautiful spots in the United States.
January Homeschool In Summary
Also, because our days are so very busy and full – from elementary up to high school, I think (though I leave room to change my mind), that I will be sharing our Collage Friday homeschool wrap up posts every other Friday rather than weekly.
Many thanks to these kind hostesses (I’m linking up!):
