The Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In Our Homeschool This Week:  Still plugging along with our 8th grade Switched On Schoolhouse program.  We are behind but I'm not too worried except for the pre-algebra.  Dd takes her SAT's the last week of March and it seems we are always behind in that and her scores always reflect that.  Hubby is going to do some pre-algebra work with dd this weekend.

Places We're Going and People We're Seeing:  We've been homebodies the last few weeks and haven't done anything exciting.  Just the usual errand and shopping trips and the like.

My Favorite Thing This Week:  My nephew is living with us and is getting to items on our To-Do List.  We went yesterday and bought a new ceiling fan for the Master Bedroom with a remote!  I think he is going to install that today or tomorrow.  Also, he was able to figure out why our Beam vacuum system hasn't been working well.  Woot Woot!  That and a new belt will have my house cat hair free before we know it!  Seeing items checked off my To-Do List makes me very happy!

Things I'm Working On:  I have been cleaning and organzing my pantry this week.  It is fairly large and very deep.  I was able to purchase four large utility totes from the Thirty-One Outlet and so far have three of them filled.  Two with insulated totes, thermoses, lunch boxes and lunch packing containers and one with nothing by breakfast foods such as cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix and pancake syrup.  Not sure what I am going to use the fourth tote for. 

I'm Cooking:  Tonight I am making Cavatini and a Salad.  I'll probably make some sort of bread as well.  I am going to freeze a pan for a later meal.  I love having meals in my freezer!

I'm Praying For:  Safe travels for everyone in our area that are out and about today.  We are experiencing freezing rain as I type this and this could go on all day.  Hubby stayed home from work.  I am praying that our power stays on.

Thank you for stopping by Second Star Academy.  Please come back again!
