Homeschool Summer Sharpeners

Happy Friday!  I am super duper excited right now.  I found awesome deals on used curriculum for grades 1 and 4 for the 2012-2013 year.  They just came this morning and I am pumped and ready to tackle it already.  Is that normal? LOL

Since we ended our first homeschool year I decided to stay up with reading, writing, and math three days a week.  I am calling it “Homeschool Summer Sharpeners.” I will  be digging up fun online resources and projects  in the weeks ahead that I look forward to sharing with you.  We officially start our summer sharpeners next week.  I would like to do Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but of course will be mixing it up  around our summer fun and vacations.

Our first fun project we completed this past Saturday was for Father’s Day.  We made shirt and tie cards out of scrapbook paper.  They turned out so stinkin’ cute as you can see in the pic.  Of course I am partial haha.  I had originally seen ideas like this on Familyfun.com but I changed it around a bit making it our own.  They most definitely were a hit!

We are looking forward to kicking off our summer adventures this Sunday at the Livonia Spree for some fun and fireworks.  I am praying that the weather holds and the temperature is tolerable for my sweet girls.

What are you doing this weekend?  Anything special?

Have a blessed weekend!
