Five On A Friday #4

Here we are, Friday has rolled around again! Wow this has been a busy week, I'm so thankful that we are on school holidays.

In The Home

Over the past year I've been working my way through ten years of toys, games, puzzles, books and home education resources. Now that my youngest is turning eight it is time for many things to go.

Once I actually started I truly had no idea just how much stuff we had. My garage is over flowing. So we are having our first homeschool resource garage sale next week. I've invited all of my local homeschoolers along to grab a bargain or two.

We've been busy sorting and pricing everything, with still a great deal more work to do yet.

In School

Technically we are on school holidays, so apart from any review items that I currently have we are taking things easy around here. Just relaxing, catching up with family and friends. Doing pretty much as we please.

Out and About

Over the Easter long weekend we attended a kids fun Easter afternoon at my in laws new retirement village. So lovely of them to put that on for all the children of the local residents.

We enjoyed a very long brunch with my family on Easter Sunday and on Monday we spent the afternoon with our very dear friends wandering around JC Slaughter Falls park area and admiring the views from the Mt Cootha Lookout.

On The Net

I've been admiring all the hard work being done over at Frangipani Bloomfields and in particular the FREE downloads available for National Curriculum Checklists.

On My Blog

This has been a huge week for me in regards to blogging. I think I 've written and posted more than I ever have.

I am participating in the Homeschool Review Crew blog hop - Tips For Homeschool Parents. You can access all my posts here in the introductory post. There are also hundreds of other tips being posted by other bloggers, be sure to check the links out for those.

I posted a mammoth review of a truly fabulous language arts product called Logic of English.

On our family adventure blog I posted about our recent visit to Bestbrook Mountain Resort and shared one from our travel diary on the Royal Australian Mint. 

Thankfully it is school holidays otherwise I never could've done all of that, it was huge!

How was your week? I'd love to hear about it.

Happy Homeschooling Friends,

WOW! Thank you for including me in your weekly roundup! I am feeling very honored! It makes me happy to know that my site is a blessing to others. :-)

I recently moved along alot of our resources too even though I still have younger children. I realised that many just didn't fit our lifestyle. I'm sure you'll find your resources 'walking out the door'.

I'm sure the local children blessed the retirement residents as much as they blessed the children. a beautiful idea.

On an interesting note apparently NSW isn't that keen on following the National curriculum and when our BOS AP comes she wants us following the NSW curriculum, the politics are interesting ;-)
