Homeschool Mother's Journal, week 34...

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
The Homeschool Mother's Journal is a weekly writing prompt and link-up, hosted by The Homeschool Chick. I just came across it and am jumping in, even though it's the end of our school year.  I'll try to keep up with it next year, because I like the fact that it's not solely about the lessons or the kids... it's about the Homeschool Mother and what's on her heart.

In my life this week…
Doing lots of cleaning for the 31 Days to Clean Challenge, and actually enjoying most of it.  Weird, huh?
In our homeschool this week…
We have been mostly reviewing things from earlier this year since Kindergarten is nearly over! I've also been getting things ready for summer and next year.  I'm excited, can't help it.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
This weekend Preston is going to be ring-bearer in a friend's wedding, so we'll get to see some old friends we haven't seen in a while. 
My favorite thing this week was…
The fact that we've been so relaxed.  I don't have anything intense left for us to do in school, so we've had really easy school days as far as the work goes.
What’s working/not working for us…
Preston must have picked up on the easy-going-ness because most days this week, he didn't have any interest in even getting started.  So, there was a bit of resistance every day except Friday when it was all fun activities.
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…
Just hoping and praying that eventually we'll get over the previously mentioned resistance that tends to happen most mornings.  I mean, he'll WANT to do school at some point, right?
A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
Michael brought home a book called Who Made God? and when Preston saw it, he a very knowing look on his face and said, "Duhhhh, no one!"  I love that he knows that, and that we can have the opportunity to talk and teach freely about God.  Yay, homeschool!  

My homeschool weekly recap will be posted on Sunday morning.

Welcome to THMJ; it's great! I agree with you, I enjoy something that's about our "whole life", not just homeschool. Will you participate through the summer?
