A Good Week (homeschool week of 1/14)

My goal this week (and this year) was to be better about writing down what the kids do that's schooly in their Homeschool Logs. Then, if I open it up to this week and there are blank spaces, I would know that they're blank because they didn't do anything, not because I didn't write it down. I was actually pretty good about writing things down this week.

  1. Looks good!

    I'm intrigued by Maybe I'll go check it out!

  2. Awesome! Always enjoy your posts. You provide so much inspiration & encouragement to so many of us. Listen, I wanted to share with you a new application that was shared with our family over the holidays. Thought you may want to check it out & share with your readers, as we have found Children's Bible to be an awesome addition to our family. Children's Bible is an app designed for children 3-13 & shares Bible stories through comics. It is available for most smart phones & computers. We have found this is a great way to get our children in the habit of reading the Bible, & it's on their level. Since as parents we are striving to maintain our daily Bible time in the New Year, we found this is a good way for the kids to start doing the same. Just something we have found that works & wanted to pass along. Check out & I think you will find it's worth the time & the kids love it!
