The Countdown has begun ... {HSMJ}

 In my life this week…
  • I'm contemplating what to write about on here.  It's nearly time for the annual back to school blog hop.  What would you like to hear about ?
  • Decided it's time to burn some pretty smelling candles.  In winter everything is always closed up and I was longing for something nice to smell.
  • We finished MI-5 Season 10.  So heartbreaking a finale. 
  • We are on the final countdown stretch until Nathaniel and I embark on a trip with my Dad and Brother to see Big Red in central Australia.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

In our home school this week…
  • We've been doing some Middle Ages traveling this week. We are loving creating notebooking pages with our Homeschool in the Woods pack.
  • Courtney over at Women Living Well is working through Proverbs this month.  Years ago with Jane and Timothy we used to read a chapter of Proverbs a day. We would read the chapter corresponding with the date.  I decided to start doing this with Nathaniel.  It's been really refreshing. 
  • Enjoyed Smiley Gets a Gun (1958). This movie is chock full of wonderful life lessons.
  •  Oliver (the 1968 musical version.)  We watched Oliver over two sittings in preparation for our theatre trip on Saturday.
  • Paul finished reading Five go to Mystery Moore.
  • Loved reading The Minstrel in the Tower by Gloria Skurzynski.  
  • Some of our delight directed learning took us to answer questions like:
    How does WIFI work?
    How does a touch screen work?
    How Safe is Your Password?
  • Take sometime to find BritLab on YouTube they have some excellent resources. 
  • Boys Brigade recommenced this week for term three. Nathaniel was awarded his first badge!
  • Did some mapping to compare the boundaries of Europe in 451AD and 528 AD
  • Nathaniel recommenced swimming lessons at the new indoor Aquatic center Aquapulse
  • We enjoyed Return to Nim's Island on Netflix Australia.
  • We are really enjoying digging into the book: Swords by By Ben Boos ISBN 978-0-7636-3148-2
  • Finished off our week watching the stage production Oliver! by our local christian High School at the local theater. 

My favourite thing this week was…
  • Getting back to Google+.  There are so many amazing resources shared there by fellow home schoolers.
 Things I’m working on…

 On the WWW I’m reading…
 I’m cooking…
  • I am not a menu planner but have decided I need to give it a go so this week I'm gathering inspiration from Darcie's Dishes
  • Really enjoyed making some Trim Healthy Mama fudge.

We must teach our students to be both wise and humble as they attempt to separate truth from lies and persuasion from manipulation. ~ Leigh Bortins {The Conversation}
