Our Homeschool Week in Review

I never did get a homeschool week in review post up last week. Life just kept me too busy

Last Friday night, Abby had a slumber part for her 13th birthday. She turned 13 last Saturday. It was her first slumber party. She had a blast and I found out I’m way too old for root beer floats at midnight. roflol

School has been going well.  They all are moving right along. No major difficulties the past two weeks. A homeschooling mama can’t ask for more than that.  :)

Bible Drill officially starts at church on Sunday. They have class/practice Sunday evenings at 5. Then church starts at 6. So it’s not really a lot on the schedule now. We just have to get to church an hour earlier. Next spring, during competition season is when it gets really busy. For now it’s just encouraging the kids to memorize and a little practice thrown in.

In her spare time, Hannah made 6 pillowcase dresses in the last two weeks.

Our church supplied the pillowcases, and the dresses will go in Christmas Shoeboxes. The money for the shoe boxes was raised by the kids at Vacation Bible School this summer.

This week, I also printed out some Hebrew handwriting sheets for Hannah. She’s learning Hebrew, and was happy to get them. She’s been using Read Hebrew Today from CurrClick.

I recently wrote a review on Aletheia Magazine, it’s a Christian magazine that teens can submit their stories, poems, drawings and photographs to for publication. Go check out the review. It’s a great magazine for teenagers.

Here are a few homeschooling links:

Hebrew Lessons – the same site I linked above for Hebrew printables also has Hebrew lessons. We haven’t used these yet,though.

  2. Love to hear that things are moving along. The pillowcase dresses are a great idea. We have been making tee shirt dresses to go to Africa, but the pillowcase dress patterns I’ve looked at look a bit easier to make. Thanks for the idea!

  3. I love the idea of putting the pillowcase dresses in the shoeboxes. We may have to try to do that too.


  1. […] made 8 more pillow case dresses for the Christmas shoeboxes at church. She made some pillow case dresses last month for church, too. This time, the church supplied the fabric (and ribbon & thread) and […]
