~Spring Cleaning? I Don't Think So~

In my life this week…

I have finished up my deep cleaning. Some people would consider this Spring Cleaning, but I don't spring clean. Really, why would you want to spend several days and/or weeks cleaning something that can be done throughout the year? This is so me. On top of my daily chores, once a month a particular room is deep cleaned from top to bottom = a sparkly house year round.

In our homeschool this week…

It's hard to believe that there are only 15 days of school left. The sad thing is there are about 22 days of Math work to finish, so we are busily doubling up on some days. We finished our History and I've been working on lessons from American Heritage Education Foundation. Some good stuff there!  I've been going through our books that will be sold to help with the funding for next year's books. I can't wait to get started listing them on Ebay.

I also decided to not teach diagramming any more! Yes, you read that correctly. There is absolutely no need for diagramming in college, unless you are planning on attending a Christian college. The parts of speech is a must but without the rocket ship. YAY!  I love grammar but I disliked diagramming and trying to teach diagramming knowing that it will not be used in college or in a non teaching profession is a nightmare. ( I talked with former students who are attending college at this moment and no diagramming. Even for the English major!)

Thoughts I have…

 

A photo to share… Saturday was the opening day for the WGJR and when the steer riding came closer, I began getting nervous. I have never been nervous for my son, but I was on Saturday. While I was standing with the camera in hand, I prayed for him. He ended up having 2 rerides because of the steer. This is what happened on the third ride, the steer stepped on Jamie's chest and it's hoof slid across the vest and ended up under the arm.
