HSMJ - The Intouchables

In my life this week…
 I had the most wonderful day today.  I joined five other homeschool mom's on an annual pilgrimage to Koorong Christian Bookshop.  We had a great day of fun, food, fellowship and book shopping.  I am looking forward to our trip next year.
Musem vist to: Living in a Sensory World.
In our homeschool this week…
  • We spent the day exploring Healsville Sanctuary.
  • Spent the afternoon at Melbourne Museum exploring Living in a Sensory World.
  • Read Louis Braille.
  • Read Helen Keller.  Explored online resources on her life.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
I am inspired by…
  • The lives of Helen Keller and Louis Braille.  What amazing people.  I am even more inspired by the determination of Annie Sullavin who was so instrumental in Helen Keller's life.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
  • Three weeks till we leave on a trip to North Queensland to see the Solar Eclipse.
  • This week we went to Healsville Sanctuary to explore the zoo and had the privilege of spending the night in the Coranderrk.  Beautiful.  WE are going there next week with a friend to enjoy three days of the zoo and surrounds.
  • Today we are going to Melbourne Museum to see Living in a Sensory World.

My favorite thing this week was…
  • Taking Sir N to the museum and him not wanting to come home and wanting to keep on exploring the museum.
What’s working/not working for us…
  • I am really enjoying using our Museum Victoria membership for short trips.  It is so great to seeing Sir N return home enthused about our day rather than exhausted and frustrated with a looooong day out.  I am pleased I made this decision.

Questions/thoughts I have…
  • What do you use to teach a second language to non reading students ??  I learned my second language as a five year old and it was so easy.  I really wish Rosetta had a pre-reading level available.
Things I’m working on…
On My Bedside Table ...
In Bloggy world I’m reading…
I’m cooking…
  •  Nothing new this week.
On Pinterest I found...

I’m grateful for…
  •  Living in a country where I am free to worship.  Free to homeschool. Free to blog.  Free to come and go as I please.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

This movie looks really interesting and I am looking forward to going to see it with Paul Monday week.
