Weekly Wrap-up March 12 - 16 and review

We've had a pretty rainy week here in California, at least where we live. I've enjoyed it, though, and it is much needed rain to help prevent a drought come summer.

Blame it on the time change last weekend and/or the drastic change in weather, but I've not been feeling well this week. So, we mainly focused on reading and a few documentaries to get us through the school week.

We SHOULD have gone to the theater on Tuesday but opted out as a way to nip this icky feeling in the bud. We did our piano lessons on Wednesday and that's about it.

I DID order Jake's curriculum for next year! First time I've ever purchased a 'complete curriculum set'! I've always pieced our curriculum together but I am really looking forward to trying this out after all the great reviews on it! We have chosen to use Trail Guide to Learning Paths of Exploration by Geography Matters! I'll be reviewing that off and on as I familiarize and plan for next year!

Here and there, I've been scouring apps for our iPad that will be in our possession this evening!! Of all the apps I've downloaded this week, I told Chris last night not one of them was for ME! LOL! They are all for our school! We can't wait to incorporate that into our schooling!

Last but not least, I've got some reviews coming up that I am excited to share! The first being!
Time4Learning has invited me to try their online curriculum for 30 days in exchange for an honest review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so come back and read about my experiences. Visit them for information about lesson plans, homeschool portfolios or writing your own curriculum review.

  1. Seems like we are having the issues only for last week. I didn't get anything done but ordered some geography and animal science books for the boys to do over the summer. When its too hot to do anything else we are going to be working on geography and Spanish non stop this summer. (along with our music lessons too of course)

    We have used T4L for 5+ years now and I can tell you with two boys of my own (15 and 10) it has allowed me to work one on one with both of them while the other continues his lessons online. I did the trail membership for 30 days and we all loved it so much that we haven't been without since. (even during the summer months, a good cure for the "I'm bored", which doesn't happen as much now since we homeschool,LOL)

    Sorry for the long comment, just seems like we fill the same way about our sons and hubbys too:) My 15 year old is taller than me but still gives his mama a kiss and hug.

    Happy homeschooling!
