I am beginning to post a Weekly Wrap-up of our activities during the previous week. I plan to publish this post each Friday or Saturday.
This is the perfect week for us to begin this post as this is our first week back in school. I know, I have heard it from a few family members. “Why in the world are you starting in June?” Well, it’s easy, Little Buddy asked to start. So, we did.
We are starting a bit easy and low key. Or at least I had planned to start easy and low key. I was afraid to put too much on Little Buddy or on me for our very first week of homeschooling. Well, Little Buddy kept asking for more. So more we did. We have begun.
At the end of each day, I would take a look back at all of the work that we had done. Then, at the end of the week, I was just plain out impressed. I did not blog much at all this week. My priority was honestly getting Little Buddy off to a great start. Check. That was accomplished!
You are welcome to view our curriculum that we are using. We have progressed through each piece with the exception of Latin. We will start our Latin studies in August. Now, we are spending additional time outside on nature studies, walks, and other activities while we have good weather.
In addition to planned activities in our schoolroom, we had the following living activities:
– Living Math – Couponing, Weekly Allowance, Review of Lego Education Catalog
– Living Writing – Father’s Day letter, Bug Journal
– Living Science – Nature study of bugs, Bug Journal
Other Activities this Week
We had an excellent Father’s Day. Little Buddy gave his Daddy a birdhouse that they put together and have painted. I’ll post about it soon. They did a wonderful job. I posted about the NASCAR driving experience that we also gave Daddy. He’s pretty excited about that gift.
My family’s newest business launched this week, www.market-wares.com. Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of time and I am so proud for it to reach this point.
We are camping this weekend in Nashville in our RV. I’ve blogged about our excursions. And have most definitely tweeted about them. We are planning upcoming RV trips to Oshkosh, WI to the EAA’s Airventure 2009 (airshow for those non-aviation folks) and then to DC in the fall. We are excited about both of these trips. Little Buddy is helping us to plan both. We are searching for great excursions. I am also starting to plan forward with our homeschooling to see where we will be at that point to include great activities during the trip. I surely do not want to be traveling and not have what we need.
We have enjoyed this first week of summertime. Our nephew spent a few days with us this past week. The boys loved playing outside, swimming, catching lightening bugs, and playing Legos. I enjoyed watching them. They reminded me of summertime when I was a little girl.
This week, Little Buddy enjoyed tennis camp. He really did very well and was very proud of his accomplishments. It was great for him to spend some time with his buddies, too. This coming week is golf camp. Many of the same boys and girls will be there. I know he’ll have fun. He LOVES golf.
Well, having a weekly wrap-up is an excellent idea. I am so proud that Kris at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers thought of it and is so gracious to host it for us all to enjoy. It seems to help me think of all that we have done during the week and look forward to all of the fun in the week to come. Week 1 of homeschooling done, Week 2 here we come!
Hi, Robin, it's good to meet you. This is my first visit to your blog; I found you on Twitter. You're weekly wrap up sounds wonderful. I bet your little boy is having a blast homeschooling. 🙂
Sounds like a great week! That's great that your little guy was ready to start school. I can't see my guys asking to start school. We've been off since mid-May and it seems to have gone so quickly. I don't think any of us are ready to get back to a schedule yet. It would be a great time for it, though, since it's too miserably hot to do much else.Congrats on getting your family's business launched this week. That must be a huge sense of accomplishment.Thanks for participating in the Weekly Wrap-Up!
