Just One Homeschooling Day Among Many

A homeschooling mom’s day can vary so much!

Today I went

  • from making a list of weekly homeschooling goals for Miss 15 to correcting Miss 10’s creative spelling;
  • from reading aloud about a back-woods author to watching Victorian farm;
  • from admiring a beautifully iced cake to scratching my head over Mr. 17’s physics experiment; and
  • from looking for suitable audiobooks with Miss 15 to dragging Miss 12 away from a book well past her bedtime.

We discussed

  • how to sort laundry,
  • the necessity of kindling (right now!),
  • the importance of eating enough calories at breakfast, and
  • retirement benefits for the Pope.

Other topics included

  • malware,
  • whether a voice is alto or soprano,
  • alternative ways of studying A Beka’s grade 9 health text,
  • who gets to study Plato’s Republic (it looks like both teens want to, so they can do it together),
  • the disappearance of socks,
  • the plagues of Egypt,
  • how to mend a torn sleeve, and
  • whether or not it is a good idea to limit one’s intake of cake.

And that’s not even getting into the subject matter we were officially studying!

Yes, it was a good day.  Peaceful and pleasant.  While it was not predictable in a detailed sense, it was totally predicable in its randomness.

Truly, I am so thankful for this wonderful calling of being a homeschool mom!

Did you have a good day too?

    Our day went well, despite being in three locations helping my parents move! All three of my kids did their independent work and today we’ll be home to do our together work. In addtion, Grace learned how to paint a room and Ryan totally set up all their computers. Moving can be fun!
