Simple Woman

Outside my window...
March 2013 017

Taking these down today to prepare for St. Joseph's feast tomorrow!

I am thinking...
that the Swiss Guards will find themselves to be much more active under the new pope!

I am thankful ...
for Pope Francis.  I find him to be down-to-earth, charming, and a very holy man.

From the learning rooms...

  • Spelling program per Dr. Holinga for all four kids, who are all on Part B.  We had a mid-year spelling checkup test today!

  • Instacert for History and start American History part 2

  • American History at Homeschool Connections Recorded Courses. 

  • Apologia Science - Physical for Gabe and Noah.  Biology for Gabe . General for Izzy.

  • Saxon math for all with math tutor for Gabe (Geometry) and Noah (Algebra I.  Izzy is doing pre-algebra and 8th grade math. Rosie- second half of 2nd grade math. 

  • Rosetta Stone Latin 3 - for Noah and Gabe

  • Diane Craft reading program for Izzy.IncludingMerrill Reading Program - Lift Off Student Reader - Level F: Student Reader Level F

  • On the Banks of Plum Creek Boy with Izzy. The Little House books are very charming, but reading them as an adult I can see all of the heart ache and disaster in them!  Sometimes they are hard for me to read. 

  • We got to the part about the grasshopper invasion today.

  • I have also added The Prairie Primer: Literature Based Unit Studies Utilizing the "Little House" Series for the comprehension questions and enrichment.

  • Pathway readers for Rosie and the Wand for Language arts.  She just started More Days Go By last week. 

  • From the kitchen...
    Chicken baked in Italian Dressing, rice and salad.  Tomorrow, pea soup and ham.

    I am wearing...
    Gray workout pants, purple shirt and pink hoodie

    I am creating...
    A St. Joseph's Day Altar

    I am reading...

    For Lent!
    Also got Scott Hahn's new Lenten book for my Kindle.

    I am hearing...
    the buzzing in my ears, the hum of the computer. I started Ear HealthPlus last Wednesday - I'm anxious to see if it makes a difference.

    A Picture to share...
