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.

  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.
