The Homeschool Mother's Journal - 9

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
We have a new roof! And it rained, but didn't come inside! Gotta be happy about that :-)

And the running continues - Couch to 5K Week 4 is done! Bring on Week 5 (and Week 5 Day 3 - running for 20 minutes without stopping -eeek!).

Technology fails! A cable was cut in our town this week which meant no Internet. Then over the Easter long weekend, it seems that our mobile carrier was overloaded and no mobile connections. I was lost!  But all is getting back to normal and I will never take my broadband for granted again!

In our homeschool this week…
Still on holidays - kids have moved on to Portal 2 (which actually looks pretty good).  Watched a very interesting documentary Child Genius about profoundly gifted children. Some were prodigies in their field of talent, others with a exceptional IQ, but still struggling to fit into the school system and find true peers.

Spent a bit of time getting organised for our next term of homeschooling - looking forward to it!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Not much exciting - we have a Blessing of the Fleet "festival" in our little seaside town. We went to look at the parade, but I'm not sure the massive influx of people is really worth it.



My favorite thing this week was…

Having no rain in the house!

What’s working/not working for us…
Chillaxing.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
Looking forward to a new term - our theme this term is "Home Again". Stay tuned for lots of home and identity type activities!

In this week's post, we have been asked to look behind an "unusual name" and I've chosen my great-aunt's husband, Fred...
