Week two

Well, we finished our week on a high note. There was a promised spelling test, & everybody made 100’s – Yay!

So I went shopping last week to Walmart (rare trip – we don’t like Walmart very much), & I found great deals for Annie for some new dresses!

I took Saturday to make this:


Cute, huh. The pattern was 99c & the material was .375c /yard. Wow!!!!  Also, it was super easy to make & modest.

Once I finished Annie’s dress, I attacked the school desk. Needed to spice up the room, and I had this paper already .


It’s just scrapbook paper applied with homemade Mod Podge (thank you, Pinterest).

Oh, so Monday I gave them free time after lunch, and what do they choose to do? Read out of their Bible story books! 🙂

So yesterday, after we had a free breakfast from Chick-fil-la, they wrote letters to their Grandmommy. It teaches them that yes, we still write letters (not just email) & be appreciative of people (she fixed Austin’s dog & let them watch movies she’d DVR’d).

Today their big project is writing lines of the alphabet. I’m trying to get them neater & neater. Then it’s math drills – Yay!

Love to you all,


Days 2&3

Sooooo … yesterday we started our day with a scavenger hunt at the Harker heights community park with some of our co-op friends, ate lunch there, then did some much needed grocery shopping. After we got home, we had school and they were treated to a rental of ’The Lorax’. For now, Tuesday will be a shorter school day because we have Quest Club with a few other local homeschool families. And … next Tuesday it will be at our house for a lesson on sewing & then how to make solar ovens (pics to follow). Today we focused on spelling & writing, and math. I’m looking for a math site where i can get maybe a page of quick problems for a “math minute” review. i think that challenge will help Austin. Oh and … Annie lost tooth #8. She’s excited for the tooth fairy visit. After a good Bible study, it’s now their bedtime for an early school day tomorrow. Love to you all, Rachel
