gratitude, home

Journaling {week four}…

.In my life this week…
Last weekend, at the Farmer’s Market, our car was backed into. Thankfully we were not in it. Also, thankfully (we think) the offender left a note with his information. The first day, this guy was all remorseful. The days following have found him unwilling to really make any efforts to fix this situation. It’s a little frustrating… 


other than that, it’s been a really good week. Warm, quiet. Productive. 
In our homeschool this week…
We wrapped up our last Science unit (climate and weather), our final 6th grade social studies unit (Renaissance) and managed 2 field trips. One was to see a musical production of the Secret Garden. (SO lovely! I had no idea!) The other was to the Old Penitentiary in Idaho. Very fun stuff… 
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Today is my husband’s birthday and I’m really looking forward to celebrating him and honoring him. 
We also have a few college graduations and parties this weekend, which are also nice. 
My favorite thing this week was…
We received a letter from the Idaho Coalition of Home Educators presenting Genny with an Honor Society certificate and informing us that she tested in the 84 percentile Nationally. We are so proud of her! While i am not a big fan of standardized testing I do value the freedoms that participating leaves us with, in our state. We went to lunch and had lemon cake to celebrate… 
What’s working/not working for us…
I am finding, as the sunshine makes us both antsy with wandering minds, that I’m grateful I pushed for longer school days and more productivity in the winter months. This enables us to have shorter “school” days as we wrap up. Definitely planning to do that again!
