This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Weekly Wrap Up ~ end of 1st quarter


I can not believe we have 9 weeks in the books. Well, actually I can. The girls have worked so hard and we have gotten so much accomplished over the last 9 weeks! I am still finishing up report cards ( the girls like them and the Lt. likes them too for our records) for their files, but so far everyone is sitting pretty.

I do have to say 9 weeks is hard on me to push hard so I am contemplating going back to our 6 weeks on, 1 week off schedule like we did last year. However, I do not want to have to do school in the summer because that is when the girls put in major training hours at the gym and it is was hard on the girls to come home after 5 hours practice do do school. Mikayla’s coach has big plans and ambitions for her, but school comes first so I need to really sit down and figure things out.


Off the top of my head I am thinking about doing 6 weeks then one light week with just math, reading, and history. If I do this we would be able to deep clean the house and still have time to finish any projects we have on going. That is my thinking right now, but I am just brainstorming. Do you have any thoughts to share? What kind of schedule do you follow?
