Welcome to another “Week in Review!” This is where I journal all of Nourishing My Scholars homeschool adventures for the week. It is my hope that you will find encouragement, humor, and a friend here. We may be a bit different, as there is no schedule, or formal curriculum. This means we are eclectic. We do whatever works for our two children and follow their interests. Pull up a cup of tea or coffee…coffee for me please…and enjoy!

Our son has had the best time being creative this week! I mean, this has been top notch fun. We are talking Lego’s and K’nex kind of excitement and creativity over here! If you’ve been here before then you know how much we love building and inspiring our creativity.
Welcome to Our Week in Review! This review is actually two weeks combined. We’ve been so busy the last two weeks (gardening, preserving food, farm animals, homeschool, reviews, ect.) that I am only now getting this post up. It’s funny how farm life has that feast or famine feel to it. You’re either sitting around twittling your thumbs…which I never do, because there is always something that NEEDS to be done…or everything must be done right now before sun down! It can be so exhausting, but also so rewarding.
I am so excited to share with all of you a wonderful art program from fellow homeschooler and artist Alisha Gratehouse! Alisha is an amazing wife, mom, home educator, art instructor, author and bibliophile. You can find her over at her blog alishagratehouse.com. I was thrilled to discover her “Mixing with the Masters” art course in which we will learn about 6 artists and their various eras and movements. As a former art student (yes, I went to an art college!) I want to instill a love of art into my own children, just as I do with books. The “Mixing with the Masters” art course is the perfect fit for us!
Well here we are, we’ve been on the farm for three months now and guess what? This week, we bought goats! You see, a few months back we met a man named Harold. He’s the goat guy around these parts and he comes highly recommended for his love and passion for goats. He raises Nigerian Dwarf goats which is exactly the breed of goats we were wanting to raise! After meeting Harold he agreed to sell us two doelings (did you know that female goats are called does and baby females are called doelings?) once they were weened from their mothers. So, I would like to introduce you to the newest members of our family and farm….Anne (with an “e”) and Marilla our 4 month old Dwarf Nigerian goats!
