Homeschooling Journey: Week 20

Welcome to February! Wow, it’s hard to believe we hit week 20 of our homeschooling journey!  I can honestly say I am very pleased with the progress we have made since starting the end of August 2011.  Has it been easy?  Definitely not, but now that we are deep into our homeschooling I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  It is been a blessing homeschooling my children.  I am starting to see some positive changes in their behavior too, YAY!

Homeschooling Week 20

We thankfully had a healthy week this week compared to last week.  If you remember last week I mentioned that we really didn’t get anything accomplished due to sickies that entered our doors but we played catch up this week and things are going very well.

Thursday, February 2,  we went to Michael’s Craft Store (My fave) to pick up some valentines supplies for our crafts this coming week.  It was an absolute blast as you can see in the picture below, the deals were awesome!  What will we be creating?  Well, you will have to wait and see the finished products in next week’s post!  Can’t wait!  We will be making special Valentine’s for family and friends.  One of them involves candy making.  Yeah, couldn’t resist that!  What’s Valentine’s Day without candy right?

On Thursday, February 2nd, I received an invite to participate in an early reading program for my 5 year old.  It’s called Funnex Reading Program.  We can’t wait to get started on it.  Cup Cake (5) is doing so well with her reading, she just loves it!

I am also excited to say that we officially have a potty trained 2.5 year old! Hurray!  Jelly Bean must have finally gotten a revelation of the concept because she has been going #1 and #2 pretty well.  Well, okay #1 as we know can be tricky with toddlers as they get so caught up in playing they tend to forget.  Jelly Bean will run down the hall to the potty but not quite make it, but as long as she knows that we are good to go.

Today, Friday, February 3rd, they had Palaestra classes in the morning and Fun Friday through Ward Homeschool Fellowship.  Today was bike day!  This was the first time Jelly Bean will be riding along with us to a Fun Friday!  She is very excited.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed weekend!  I am looking forward to spring and summer how about you?  Not that winter has been that bad but still, I am rooting for warmer temperatures!

Happy Homeschooling!
