Where Has November Gone?

We have been so busy.  One of the million of reasons I love Homeschooling is that if we have 3 days a week that is slammed full, Keilee can still do all her schoolwork on the other days.  Early on I would sweat if we didn’t check off each thing on a list every single day.  No more.

Co-op Art Journaling and Drama. 

These classes are awesome.  We have all learned so much and had a blast.  I can’t believe that this Monday is the last class until 2014.  Monday was Super Hero Day so Keilee was Batman.

For this Drama Class I gave them each a Fairy Tale and they had to completely rewrite it and perform it.  They did a GREAT job!

4.  Singing Christmas songs at practice.

We ate an early Thanksgiving with my cousin.  We used to be best friends and more like sisters, but we have lost touch and recently gotten back in touch!  There was about 15 or 20 people there and Keilee and I had a blast!!!  Keilee sold 3 headbands and got 10 orders!! 

And next week is Thanksgiving!  I hope yours is wonderful and full of love and family.  I wish I could get together with all my blog friends and cook Thanksgiving dinner together and have our kids running and laughing and playing and creating and then sit down with everyone for a HUGE Homeschool Dinner!!  

Homeschool Rocks!!

  1. How are you guys doing? I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. Miss ya.

  2. I like the Walt Disney quote. The ability to dream, imagine and create without the borders us adults have.

  3. Aaah, isn’t the flexibility of homeschooling a blessing!?
    The smash journal is so fun. I’ve never done one; wonder if my 13yo would enjoy that. I’ll have to show her some examples and see if she wants to try one.

  4. Mary says:

    So much fun going on! We went to Catching Fire too – loved it!

  5. Sylvia says:

    It seems to me that Keilee would have a well rounded education even with doing any “school work” so no worries there! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  6. Sandra says:

    Wish I could join you and some others for Thanskgiving too. I love a holiday focussed on giving thanks rather than a more commercial focus but of course we don’t have it down here. Wishiing you and Keilee a wonderful holiday.

  7. Dawn says:

    I just love all of her smash journal pages. They are all so creative. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Hi Karen,
    I first found you on the “Homeschooling an Only Child” hangout on google+. Your week looks amazing! Gymnastics, knitting, drama, singing… that’s a lot wrapped into one week! :) So looking forward to Thanksgiving, how about you?
    I too host a weekly link up. It’s called “This Week…” it’s every Saturday and I would love to invite you to come link up with me. :)

  9. I know I say this each week, but there is always so much goodness in your posts. It is such a treat. I love her art journal…she is so talented in so many ways, but I know you know that. Friends, games, knitting, gymnastics, play rehearsal…there is so much packed into your weeks. So many beautiful things! And, yes, I would love to have a Thanksgiving Dinner and have all my homeschooling friends there, too. That would be wonderful.

  10. Wow good for K selling so many headbands! What a fun week with plays, gymnastics, movies. And more! Enjoy the weekend!

    Your picture collages are always so wonderful.

    Such a busy week with lots of great fun. Amber LOVES all things My Little Pony too. She has been watching the Equestria Girls movie on Netflix this week. She was very excited to hear Keilee loves Ponies too. Love all the pictures too, they always give us such a wonderful view of your life.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Mary says:

    Anna is wanting to see Catching Fire so badly! I’m jealous you’ve already seen it!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Karen! I’m so happy to know you :-)
