In our life... This week was a very good one, although a long one. For some reason this week seems to have creeped by. Maybe it is because we are going somewhere fun tomorrow that both Boo Bear and I are looking forward to. My sweet little guy gave me a rose bush for Valentines. This way I can keep roses all year. :-) I am very excited about that. Tomorrow we are going to the local basset hound rescue group's big fundraiser. We have a hound dog and so this is like hound dog heaven for me. :) Can't wait!!!
In our homeschool... We met with our homeschool group on Tuesday for a Valentine's party and exchange. It was a great time and we are looking forward to the next time.
I have to share about the progress we have made. I gave Boo Bear the math evaluation for the Horizon curriculum just to make sure where we are. He did VERY well and I was so excited for him. Not only is he ready for 1st Grade math but it helps to encourage me that we did it! This year looking back has been full of ups and downs and tears and questions on whether or not I was doing any good. Thank you Lord for these moments and the encouragement of a support community like I have found!!!
We took a couple trips to the library and had some fun in theater this week.
Questions/thoughts I have... I am planning for next year's curriculum. I have decided on Horizon's math for 1st grade but history and science are still up in the air. Did you start these subjects then or did you wait? I am not waiting on Science because he absolutely loves that type of thing. History I want to bring in because he is such a sponge and while he WANTS to learn I want to teach all we can. Story of the World has been highly recommended. What do you think or what would you suggest for history and science?
What I'm cooking... I tried a new recipe last night and it was a big success. It was so simple and easy and tasted sooo good! It was BBQ chicken Calzones and everyone loved them. You can find the recipe here.
A video, quote to share... My pastor posted this on FB this week and it really stood out to me...
