A week in the life of homeschoolers - July 15th - July 21st

Wow I cannot believe we will be starting our 2nd year of homeschool in a week. I am super excited to start a new year since I now have a better understanding about my children's learning styles, interests etc. We had a great Summer and enjoyed spending time together having fun! This week we spent most of our time at home or at the library. And I was able to get caught up on several things on my very long To-Do-List. 

July 15th - July 21st
Sunday morning Gwyn helped me bake some delicious cornbread muffins. Later in the afternoon went to the Lowes Build and Grow clinic where the kids built a Kick Spinning Po. Afterwards we headed to Barnes and Nobles so the kids could get their FREE books for participating in the Summer Reading program. While we were there they had fun building on the Lego table and playing with the puppets. Monday we spent most of the day at home but did take a quick outing to our favorite place - the library. Tuesday we also stayed home most of the day but did venture out for speech therapy and another trip to the library. At the library we got to hear a great story teller tell us some stories about Ancient Greece. He used the kids and puppets to tell the stories and we learned 4 Greek myths. Wednesday the kids played a game with daddy before he left for work. Later some friends from North GA came to visit us. The kids had a great time playing with their friends. After our friends left Rowyn decided to fix our broken rocker all by himself. It was completely his idea. He first tried to use his plastic screwdriver and when he realized that wasn't working he went into my tool box and got a real screw driver. Thursday we headed back to the library to see the Dr. Dino puppet show.  It was a great show and the kids learned all sorts of cool facts about Dinosaurs. After the puppet show we went to the pool where we spent about 4 hrs swimming and making friends. We also made some yummy solar smores. Friday we spent the day at our friends house celebrating our friends birthday. The kids had a great time playing with friends, eating yummy sugary stuff and hitting a pinata. Rowyn and I also got a much needed haircut thanks to our friend. Gwyn slept-over at her friends so Rowyn got some one on one time with mommy and daddy which made him very happy. He got to stay up waayyy past bedtime. Saturday Rowyn continued to get some one on one time before his sister came home. We played mouse trap and snuggled while watching Wallace and Gromit. Gwyn finally arrived home in the afternoon and our friends hung out for a little bit to play. Later that evening some of my homeschool mom friends dragged me out for moms night out.

How was your week?
