Homeschool Highlights - Week Nine on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com


Welcome to Homeschool Highlights! 
This weekly link-up is your opportunity to share some highlights of what is happening in your homeschool and in your world each week. If you write a wrap-up post at the end of each week, like I've been doing, we'd love to see what you're busy with from week to week. If you'd like to pick a favorite post from your week that spotlights a resource or activity in your homeschool that you'd like to tell others about, we're interested in those too. I'm keeping the guidelines as simple as I can, and they will appear at the bottom of each post, along with the link tool. I look forward to getting to know you, and I hope this will be a source of encouragement and good ideas for all of us.

Grab a cup of coffee and let's get started!

Homeschool news  . . . We had a tough time getting started this week, because we had family visiting on the weekend, and they headed home Monday morning. On top of that Kennady wasn't feeling well. We tried to concentrate on getting back on track Tuesday, since Kennady didn't have choir so the day would not be cut short like usual. I think we made a fair recovery, but I still don't have a great feeling about algebra. As usual. It was a good week for most other subjects though.

Other news . . . We had a wonderful weekend with our granddaughter here! Well, and her parents too, of course. We were delighted to provide some free babysitting services so they could go out with friends and on a date night to celebrate their anniversary. We also had a few friends over to celebrate little Veronica's first birthday.

We've been limping along with only two vehicles this week while we await a decision on the fate of our truck. We really hope it can be repaired, and it seems like the damage isn't all that much, but we just don't know. So far it hasn't been too bad getting everyone where they need to be while missing one set of wheels, but with any luck it will only be temporary!

We had our first grad ceremony planning meeting on Wednesday evening. It hit me partway through the meeting that this would likely be my last grad as "just" a committee member. Next year I'll do a bit of double duty, I suppose, as a committee member and as the parent of a grad. But I don't see myself staying on to help with that planning after Kennady has graduated. Anyway, looks like we'll have four students participating in the ceremony this year, and it's a great group, so we're all looking forward to it!

I can't believe she's a year old already! It seems like just a few short months ago that you were announcing her birth.
