About Me

I'm a stay at home Mom of two children and I have the unique privilege of being able to homeschool both of them. I am a stepmother to two older daughters one who is going to college. I enjoy shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning, organizing, running, clowning, making soap, playing piano and lately painting with ASCP paint! I am learning to enjoy the little things in life and make the most of it...clinging to my Savior through the tears that life brings and enjoying his GRACE He gives us every day! Thanks for stopping by!

Homeschool Enrichment Classes

If you homeschool you are probably a part of a local group where you have teachers come in and teach your children classes that you cannot or don't want to...and it gives our children a chance to visit with one another.  This year I allowed for a lot of classes for both of my kids....for my son entering 7th grade this year is going to be very busy on the academic side.  We are on our third day of our "trial" week.  I incorporated two subjects this year in different ways than I have ever done before.  I purchased the Rosetta Stone Spanish for homeschool for my T and he is in LOVE.  We have taken Latin, and French and I have tried other methods and while he was able to grasp some of it NOTHING has shown as much excitement as he has now.  I have also purchased the BJU online Science course...because quite frankly we were lacking in the Science department.  This teacher is amazing and he is enjoying it.  He starts at 8:30 am and today he wasn't done with these two subjects until 10:30....and we haven't even added all our other school yet...I have a feeling we will be moving school up an hour:) 

Yesterday he was excited to go to classes...he is taking Personal Finance, Speech, Choir and Elite Chess.  My E is taking Colors of the Rainbow, Numbers Numbers, Numbers and Gooey Science which she will start in four weeks.  These classes for my E are mainly just building on what we have already studied and give her some social time...she did make friends with a little doll named Naomi yesterday...at our church boys seem to be the only ones her age...so having a friend that is a girl is a very special treat.

My children are also involved in youth activities, Awana, Dance, Basketball, and Boy Scouts.  Enrichment classes give them the best of both worlds making very well rounded individuals.

My T doing online Science...this seems to be our answer to prayer:)
Next week we have a new set of braces for T and our schedule will be in FULL swing!

Now, if I could only get my legs to feel better after my strength training we will be getting somewhere!  Have a GREAT day!
