Homeschool This Week


I'm really proud of how well Emily is doing this year.  We have really big changes going on and coming up over the next few months.  She is taking it so well and is so resilient.  Such a good kid.  I think this is going to be a great learning opportunity!!  

 In my life this week… We are busy packing.  We are moving to New Hampshire temporarily due to a family issue.  BIG upheaval.   
In our homeschool this week… Lots of good reading going on with Little Women and Pride and Prejudice.  Then there's math, world history, biology, still studying the book of Luke, practicing cursive (it's getting MUCH better, finally!!)  nature study, French, and finishing up our president study of George Washington with more reading and videos.   
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… 
I am inspired by… the changing of the seasons - all the beautiful gifts from God.  
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…as noted above - in the  next week to ten days we are going to be driving from Michigan to New Hampshire with a stop in Niagara Falls and the Adirondack Mountains!  Should be an exciting adventure.   
I’m reading…finishing up A Year with Austen and reading for mother/daughter book club Pride and Prejudice 
I’m cooking…Tonight I'm making breaded pork chops, steamed broccoli and carrots, and stuffing.  
I’m grateful for…my awesome kids. 
I’m praying for…my best friend, the election, our country.  
A photo, video, link, or quote to share… this is NOT my picture - but they are pictures of the area of our home for the next few months:  


  1. All the best for your upcoming move! New Hampshire is beautiful this year...Visit the Kancamagus Highway and the White Mountain National Forest for some great nature!

  2. Thank you so much for visiting my blog because it gave me an opportunity to find your blog! I love blogs with girls the same age as Kei. Sounds like you had a great week in the middle of a lot of change. Keilee just got the role of Amy March in Little Women! I see that you are reading that. I will be back to visit!
