Homeschool Journey Weeks 5 and 6

Welcome to October! Wow, where did the time go?  Last week was very busy on top of homeschooling.  I got to sing in a wedding at the Mary Martha Chapel in Greenfield Village, so I  had practices, rehearsal dinners, etc. to prep for.  With that said, I was unable to post our journey last week as time got away from me.  I thought I would just combine last week’s journey with this week’s.

Lapbook Fun

Sweet Pea (9): Getting to Know your Missionaries.  Sweet Pea will be researching historical missionaries and organizing them in her lapbook.  This will coincide with recent missionaries she has learned about in United States History.  This particular lapbook project was purchased and downloaded easily from  Love that site!

Cup Cake (6): Monster Math Cup Cake will be putting together a fun monster math activity lapbook as a supplement for her math skills.  She has gone full speed ahead and is going to need to be challenged a little more.  Very good thing yet very surprising.  This lapbook was also purchased and downloaded from

Both girls are continuing with their classes at Homeschool Connections in Farmington Hills.  They are loving it and doing very well.  We look forward to what the future brings with this program.  I am currently looking at online foreign language for both girls.  Now this will be fun.  Momma can learn right along with them, love it.  Cup Cake is having fun learning Spanish in her Homeschool Connections class.  They are learning the spanish alphabet with a fun video.  Just click the link at the end of the post.

Jelly Bean (3), well what do I say?  Our little preschooler is blossoming right before our eyes.  Her vocabulary skills have improved tremendously.  She knows how to point and say all the colors and shapes and currently knows the letters A-D with their sounds.  She is loving the hands on activities I have been providing her with.  She’s a busy bee.  Oh yes, and she knows how to use scissors splendidly.  She cut out four shapes without any frustration, yay!

This week we are preparing for our second annual family homeschool trip which we take up north.  We will be leaving this Friday night and will return next Thursday, October 11th.  I have some fun adventures planned that I can’t wait to share with you when we return.

Happy Homeschooling!
