My ‘to post’ list for the month of October…

What I would like to do and what I can do are sometimes worlds apart…but here is what I would LIKE to do:

~ Lesson plans for the FINAL continent we studied with Galloping the Globe. All that’s left is Canada and the US and the printables for Canada are posted on my geography website page. I tell you…the plans are coming, I just need uninterrupted time to get them done {haha}.

~ Poem printables for First Language Lessons 4

~ Full pdf set {and individual ones too!} of verse printables for the Awana Cubbies Hopper book {so far 17 are done}

~ Verse pdfs for the Awana SkyStormer book {my goal is to complete 10 of these!}

~ A few more great giveaways {Pick and Draw and Homepreschool and Beyond}

~ and of course all the regular weekly stuff…Science Sunday, Homeschool Village {when I can!!}, Preschool Corner, and Raising Rock Stars too!

My Goal for the month of October…

This past month has felt like a full round of insanity around these parts. We had much going and I tried to keep track of my time using Toggl {I have it both on my desktop and also on my iTouch}. I’ve done pretty good keeping up and tracking our homeschool time, my Bible reading time, housework, and all the other random things in our life. It’s been helping me be accountable {which is a good thing} and see what areas I need help tweaking a bit.

Exercise would be one of them.

I REALLY need accountability in this area ~ meaning another body to suffer along side of me. I believe that I’ve convinced my hubby to groan along with me, so my goal is to get back on track with exercise.

What’s one thing that you really want to do this month?

  • I have so much to get done this month... I have reviews to finish. I will probably get behind cause we are moving 1300 miles in a week. Can't wait to read your post.

  • First of all, what happened to SEPTEMBER? I seem to have blinked and it was GONE!

    Second of all, can you please stop reviewing cool stuff that I feel like I HAVE to have? Please? LOL At least let me win one of your giveaways once in a while. ;0)

    My blog goals for October are to start keeping better track of "tot school" and to possibly link up, if I can get all my pictures uploaded from the camera and organized. I already stay fairly organized for my 3rd grader because we have to report to the school district on a regular basis. It's more than just required reporting, though -- I want to record these things because the girls are growing and learning so fast and we really have a lot of fun that I want to always remember!

    And the exercise thing? Well, I just think it stinks that reading doesn't count as an aerobic activity.

  • I just found your blog and let me say, I absolutely love it. The big thing for us this month is workboxes. I'm setting ours up a lot like yours. I love your weekly grid system and the way you do chores. I have one question though. How do you make your tags? I would like to print off just the ones that we use and there are others, like ballet for example. Thanks a buch, and thanks for sharing all your craftiness!!

  • I'm hoping to get myself on a better schedule. I have really sucked at time management lately and as a result I haven't really had much progress with schooling my boys.

    I need to get myself together, in bed at a decent hour and caught up on all my school work so I can focus on working with my boys.

    Getting some steady exercise wouldn't be so bad either!

  • Looks like a great list of goals for this month!

  • 2 things- I want to finish unpacking and "moving in" to our home. We've been here a year and this place still looks like we just moved in! The other is get some sort of documentation system going for our homeschool. I dove right in and have done a HORRIBLE (as in non-exisitent) job of keeping up with what we did and when. Our first kindergartener is the oldest of 4 and I really don't want to have to try and remember how I did things for each kid!
