Seriously, every time I look at the calendar another month has come and gone. I didn’t even realize March was here until the 3rd. With a new month comes a new edition of this journal I’m attempting to keep.
In my life this month…
I never expected to be one of those crazy party planning moms, but it turns out I am. We are in full sweet-sixteen planning mode. When our oldest girl turned 16 four years ago we seem to have set an expectation at the type of party for the rest of the girls. This month we will be preparing all the decorations, and most importantly searching for a dress, now that the venue is secure.
Also, basketball season is coming to an end. As always we’ve enjoyed watching all our girls play and seeing their skills and sportsmanship grow has been a blessing. We will miss traveling for away games and fellowship with other homeschool families, but I’m excited about being back at home on Fridays and Saturdays.
In our homeschool this month…
We completed our second level of our History Revealed curriculum as scheduled and we will be diving deep into American history and literature. I’m a total nerd when it comes to both of these subjects so I’m a little too excited about this next term. I’ve been working on a few unit studies that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon.
My favorite thing this month…
March kicks of the official birthday season in our family, we will be celebrating 20 or so birthdays in the next 3 months, 4 of those birthdays belong to my 4 youngest girls. Lots of birthdays mean lots of family gatherings; and what’s better than that?
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Last month the girls and I took a last-minute un-planned field trip to Balboa Park in San Diego. One afternoon was definitely not enough time to absorb all the sights and activities available. This month we hope to spend an entire weekend museum hopping and exploring all there is to see. I’ve included some photos from our trip there below.
Some photos to share…
On the blog in case you missed it…
Did you see the blog re-design? What do you think? I’m loving it. I’m still working out a few bugs, so if you find any broken links or missing images, please let me know.
Also, I got the pleasure of contributing a chapter for the Big Book of Homeschool Ideas Volume Two. You can read about it here.
