Well it’s April.. hard to believe. Baseball started up a week ago. All three younger kids are playing.. 2 different teams.. Eric is coaching one and helping with another.
Last week the kids took part in our local groups Homeschool Geography Expo..
Ziah and Taejan did New Zealand
Declan and his friend Owen did Iraq
Taejan has discovered a love of all that is aviation and we visited the local airport..where he got to see Helicopters land and take off twice..
The grandson is now 13 months old..
Declan is taking part in the Jr Solar Spring challenge via the local middle school. his best friend asked if Declan could be on their team and he said yes. So once a week I drop him off there ( after school hours).
We had a nice field trip to the local humane society to watch some tests be done on a cat and learn more about animal care
Thats a basic round up of life. I am currently planning for the 2014/15 school year plus making the kids summer notebooks to work on…

HSing gets much less fun.. I seem to be at a loss.. I no longer know if this is the path for us. I dont want them in PS but I feel like I am failing them on so many levels. Once upon a time it was all fun and exciting..now its just not. I look at my youngest and he never had the fun in lower grades my other 2 did.. and Ziah didnt have as much fun as Declan did. I really wish I had the tools to fix this.. I feel so isolated and alone much of the time on this journey.

Do you ever feel like , as a homeschooling mom, you are totally failing? I certainly do lately..

Haven’t done much in the line of photographable school this week.. I’m pretty much done for the season. Planning to spend a good amount of the next 3 weeks restructuring and such.
Oh but Declans state travel hoops team is currently undefeated..and took home a tournament championship on Sunday..whoot whoot!

I’m in the middle of one of my “oh my am I teaching them enough” spells. It seems I spend so much time on trying to get my youngest reading ( its going pretty well) and so much time at sports and other activities that I often feel I am a total failure. My kids dont read the books other homeschoolers do..they dont do the projects other homeschoolers do….. ahhhhhhhh
