Homeschool Mothers Journal- I Turned 34!

In my life this week…
My son was recognized by the library for leaving a very nice comment about them on their facebook page. They were so thrilled that they asked to photograph him and use his quote in the new library promotion. He will be in the new posters through out the city as well and in our newspaper for the next 4 weeks. They took many pictures of our family throughout the library to use in future promotions, it was so fun. We were also asked to be in the commercial they were shooting on Wednesday all because of my sons wonderful comment. It was such a great experience for my kids to see how a commercial is shot, and get to be in one. They treated the kids like movie stars it was so fun for them. This whole experience was flashback of the days that I worked on the set of Dawson's Creek in my 20's as an extra. Now that was FUN!


In our homeschool this week…
We finished up our studies on Ethiopia and have moved on to China. We started out our week with a Chinese New Year Celebration. There were so many youtube videos up so quickly on the 23 of the parades and fireworks in Hong Kong. The kids really enjoyed watching the Lion dance.

We have also started our Human body unit, starting with the skeletal system. I will be doing a long blog post on this later next week.

Duck stringing vertebrae and cartilage on his spinal cord.


My favorite thing this week was…
Having dinner at a super fun Japanese steakhouse for my birthday.



Questions I have…
Does your dining room table often look like this through out the week?



Things I’m working on…
Lots of emails and organizing events and such that are coming up next month.

Thinking about doing letter of the week again with my littles. They seem to get a little boared of the more complex topics I talk about at circle time. I think I need to do simpler stories, finger plays, rhyming and songs with them before I sit down for older kids circle time.


I’m cooking…
Shepherd Pie that no one liked!

So, your birthday dinner was EXPLOSIVE?? :) That's a great photo. And happy birthday, you're just a tad older than I am. My day comes in May :)

Have a great weekend!

YES! My dining table often looks like that! I'll be watching for your human body post later because we're getting into that soon.

Stopping by from HMJ- My dining room table looks like that or worse! I find with us homeschooling there's "stuff" all over the house... experiments, books, Lego building projects and so much more...

LOL at the diningroom photo. Right now mine has some empty drinking cups, a dismantled Lego something, an artbook with papers of 70s cartoon characters on them from my daughter, a CHRISTMAS candle, and an used napkin on it. LOL I suppose I should get out there and clean it up soon!

Happy birthday!

What a fun week...and yes our kitchen table is worse, and the floor and the counter and anywhere else I have to have paintings laying out to dry. I spend about a minimum of a half hour cleaning up every night. We have never been to that restaurant...need to try it!

Yup, that's our table too! Has your son recovered from his publicity stint? It will be interesting to see how this plays out... so cool for him to witness how a few words can be so powerful!
