Quick Update.

Just a really quick update. I’ve started adding in what we are reading in HOAW. The readings don’t necessarily line up perfectly with Spielvogel. It’s just our way to slowly get a more in depth understanding of what we are learning in ancient history. It may or may not be helpful to others. LOL

I also apologize for not getting the entire year up. I’m just adding days after we’ve done them. I don’t always get a chance to post them up. This lesson plan will likely be more helpful for upcoming years since I’ll likely have it all up by the time we’ve completed it. Also, if you have a supplement or link to share (even if it only pertains to a particular lesson), please contact me. We are always looking for other ways to reinforce the lessons.

In other news, we are likely going to take Thursday off from school. It’s supposed to be a really nice day, and we don’t get many of those after October. We’ll probably go out to eat and find some nice outdoor activity to do. I probably could count whatever it is towards school. Hmmmm.

Wow. I’ve Been Busy, Busy.

I haven’t done any real updating lately. Seems that life is getting in the way of my blog. (as usual) I have a few updates here:

The Blog
I know I have been posting about a lot of homeschool stuff lately. A lot of the people that read my blog are NOT homeschoolers, so I do apologize for the sudden shift. My daughter is now a high schooler and we are focused. I will be sure to post some non-homeschooling related material as well. I have some updates on Ms. NK coming up. She’s having terrible twos at 18-months. UGH.

Homeschooling
We are knee-deep in the homeschool life here. Really. Outside of the day to day schooling, I’ve started a bowling club that meets every Friday (considering changing it to every other Friday), and there was a great turn out. That gives us something to look forward to on Friday afternoons.  Trying to develop some more outings and activities soon.

I have had some requests to add our HOAW readings to the ancient history lesson plans I have here, so I will be adding those soon. I really need to find a better way to list those plans, but no time for that now.

Pictures
I know readers like to see pictures of what’s going on as well, but oh, it’s such a daunting task. Not taking them…UPLOADING them. I have a ton of pictures on Instagram, but adding them here makes me grunt. I should still do it…and uh…I will. Someday.

Recreation
Not much going on here. With work (which I love) and homeschooling and parenting, there’s just not a lot of time for extras. We did manage to go to the drive-in movie the other day. Not such a great experience for me with a toddler (hello mustard on my clothes and steering wheel!), but the kids and my mom enjoyed it. The girls and I have been watching The Walking Dead. I’ve already seen it and yes I’m one of those mothers that skips parts. One of them watches from under a blanket. =/
