I am so excited to participate in another week of The Homeschool Mother's Journal. I am linking up with Sue over at The Homeschool Chick this week.
In My Life This Week: Thing have been pretty crazy over here. We are still in the process of revamping the office into the school room. We are making slow progress. I am debating on colors at this point. We have also had 4 days of yucky weather, which meant no playing outside, which meant messy house.
In Our Homeschool This Week: We have had a very productive week. Tay is moving right along with her studies. She has completed her poem and started a new one. Ash is doing great! She has moved along with her reading and has even begun speed drills in math. She loves them! Buddy has been working on his fine motor skills. I have been trying to help him hold his pencil/crayon the correct way. This has been somewhat of a challenge, but he is making progress. His favorite activity is using the scissors and the glue.
Places We Are Going/People We Are Seeing: We really did not do very much in this area. The weather hasn't been so great so we stayed home most of the week. We do not have much planned for the weekend as well. Tay would love to go skiing, but it will depend on the road and ski conditions. We will see.
My Favorite Thing This Week Was: Watching and listening to all 3 kids sing the theme song for the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything in the car. It was so funny! They were bouncing in the seats and singing, or shall I say, yelling the song. Great Memory! Do your kids love Veggie Tales as well?
What's Working/Not Working For Us: Something that is not working for us is using the kitchen table as our school area. There are so many distractions in the kitchen, and the lack of room for everyone to work is becoming a problem. I am looking forward to each of the kids having their own workspace.
Homeschool Thoughts/Questions I Have: A question that comes to my mind is how long should our school day be? I work until they are done, but sometimes we are done in 2 1/2 hours. I feel that the quality of what they are learning is there, but should I have them work longer? How long is your average school day?

Have a wonderful weekend and see you again soon.
