First Homeschool Mother's Journal for 2015

Since moving to Melbourne the ONE thing I have really struggled with and really miss is having three or four really good second hand bookstores to frequent.  Can you recommend any ?  I did find this list on line Melbourne’s Best Second-hand Bookstores what are your opinions ?

In my life this week…
This week has been good.  I spent a very delightful evening last night redesigning my blog background and creating a new header, and button.  What do you think of the new look ??

For those of you receiving this on RSS here is a screen shot

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Sonlight Blog Party
In our home school this week…
  • We went to Melbourne Zoo for the day.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
  • We've been chauffeuring my husband to work each day as he has injured his back.  Please keep him in your prayers for healing.
  • On Tuesday we spent the day at Melbourne Zoo with the Australian Canon Collective.  It was such a lovely day.  The best part was that I got to borrow and use the brand new Canon 7D Mark II camera and the L-series 100-400 mm lens for the day.  Photo's to come 
  • Sir N spent the day at a cousins house while we met up with some wonderful new friends from Queensland whom we met through Instagram.  The best part is I discovered this new friend has a blog. A Mother's Faith Hope and Love
My favourite thing this week was…

 Things I’m working on…
  • Virtual Curriculum Fair beginning on the 5th of January.
  • Meet some new homeschool friends.  Here are 58 homeschool bloggers to meet.
  • Working out what our curriculum will be for 2015.  So far I have settled on our Language Arts.
  • On Monday evening I will be sharing our Math, Logic and Science choices.
 On the WWW I’m reading…

 I’m cooking…
  • I'm actually experimenting with Trim Healthy Mama recipes.  This year I want to focus on my health and part of that is loosing the extra pounds/kilograms I have gained with my pregnancies and immigrations ...
  • I mixed equal quantities of almond meal and Parmesan cheese and coated chicken in it before baking.  This was so tasty I have decided to add it to our weekly menu.

  1. Love the new blog design! And I'm starting Trim Healthy Mama too and am going to have to try out that recipe!

    1. Thank you Erin :) That recipe is very nummy

  2. I love your new blog look. Very nice. :o)

  3. I really like the new look! The chicken sounds like it would be delicious. Sounds like you had a great time at the zoo. Are you going to purchase the camera you borrowed for the day? I have to get a new camera and I want one with a lens.

    1. I would love to purchase the same model camera I used but that is going to take some serious savings on my part :) It is however on my long term plan.

  4. Well done Chareen. Love the new look and I wish you God's blessings as you journey through 2015 teaching Sir N and experiencing all the new things that cross your path. You are one very talented young woman whom God has been your centre focus in teaching and training up a child in the way they sould go. God's plan for your life and your family is the wonderful promise from JHob 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you ope and a future". Stand on these promises and wipe out fear don't let it steal your joy in this journey. Love you heaps my child. Love from your mother.
