Homeschool Mother's Journal, July 1st, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal: Summer Edition, a link-up with The Homeschool Chick.

In my life this week...
- Our car broke down in the middle of Michael's pizza shift Tuesday evening.  Alternator went out.  Thankfully, my amazing brother-in-law is a mechanic and was able to fix it! 
- We had a wacky schedule because Michael worked 1-9pm Wed-Fri.  It was nice having him around in the mornings, we did cool stuff like breakfast with Regina & Kevin and going to a birthday party at the Splash Factory!  Also, I worked on Thursday evening... woo hoo!

In our homeschool this week...
I had Preston start on the workbooks I planned for him to do this summer.  One is A Reason for Handwriting A and the other is a generic First Grade workbook.   I also did more prep work... mostly cutting, laminating, cutting, hole punching, etc.  I have really been enjoying the prep work... and I hope I always will!

A photo to share...
I've got two.
The Hernandezeseses came for a visit!

Preston... pants.  Preston Pants!
