Weekly Reflections - Week Thirty-Five....

At Home

School's out for the summer! We are officially ending our 2016-2017 academic year. This week, Riley finished up her online math. Ruben finished up science. I'll be working on my homeschool audit over the next couple of weeks. I also hope to do exit interviews with the kids to see what they thought worked and what didn't and what skills they wish to improve over the course of the next year. I will be taking all things into consideration as I plan for fall.

Around the Web

I loved reading Rea Berg's homeschool story and seeing the photos of her young children in the five part Veteran Edition at Learning Well Community. I really respect her wisdom and years of experience. She was my favorite Great Homeschool Convention speaker!

Brandy released her 2017 Mother Culture Reading List earlier this week. I'm still on the fence about my reading choices this summer. I've been wanting to read something by C.S. Lewis and Stratford Caldecott's books are on my night stand, as is The Emperor's Handbook. Now that we've finished up our academic year, I have one more book selling event. Then I will have time to focus on summer reading. Before starting any new books, I really want to finish Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry.

I recently found a new podcast that I'm enjoying. Greta Eskridge, Kristin Rogers, and company offer conversation about mothering, home life, and education on At Home Podcast. A friend recently put Podcast Addict on my Kindle and I've added At Home to my list. I'm moving up in the world with technology ;-)

I also purchased a bundle this week from Wild + Free. This gives you limited time access to many resources including past Wild + Free Conference talks, which I've been working through. So far, I've enjoyed Terri Woods, Greta Eskridge and Jodi Mockabee all introducing themselves and sharing rhythms from their homeschool day.


  1. I have a Caldecott book looking at me across the room! I feel your pain. Decisions, decisions!

  2. So many books, so little time ;-)
