Weekly Goals: August 23-29

This is my favorite painting that I did during my senior year of high school.  It was hanging at my parents' house for awhile, until they moved.  My mom found it, along with several other pieces of art, in storage, and asked if I wanted it.  Now it's hanging in our living room, and it makes me happy every time I see it!  

I just realized I never posted this on Sunday!  Oops...Better late than never.

Last Week's Goals:
  • Finish planning math, and figure out Matthew's math and letter of the week for school.  Mostly done!  More about what I chose later this week!
  • For real, get the homeschool room ready.  Mostly done as well!  We still need chairs though.  Again, more later this week.
  • Finish reading The Girl on the Train.  Done!
This Week's Goals:
  • Figure out how the request system at the library works.  Now that school is back in session, they've started running vans between the area libraries again, so we can request books from other ones for free, but I don't know exactly how long it takes or how to do it.
  • Prep for the first week/month of school.  I have a weekly checklist that I plan to do on Sundays to get ready for the coming week of school, and then I double check a couple of our subjects to make sure I have the necessary materials for the month, since we only make it to bigger cities twice a month.
  • Read a book.  Probably The History of the Pink Carnation.


  1. I need to make a weekly checklist of sorts for homeschool planning. Our weeks vary based on my husband's work schedule, so it's easier said than done. I don't have a daily schedule planned out either. I guess I'm slacking at the start of year 2. :)

    1. It's one of the things that I always meant to do last year, but didn't. And now that we have more subjects this year, plus a couple subjects separately, I figured I would list it all out so I wouldn't forget.
