Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…Daughter had a friend sleep over on Saturday and they had such a good time. This may be the last sleepover in this house. Bittersweet.

In our homeschool this week…Daughter is excited about starting on United States history. I love history so this will be very enjoyable for me.

I am inspired by…family walks through the neighborhood and the neighbors we have been blessed with.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…haven't gone anywhere but the grocery store this week. How exciting!

My favorite thing this week was…walking with my husband.

What’s working/not working for us…trying to get to bed earlier and get up earlier has been a challenge for us. We want to be in bed about 9:30 to read before retiring so that we can get an earlier start on our day. We managed to do this once this week :( We are a work in progress.

Things I’m working on…besides homeschooling, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundering, etc. I'm trying to get things packed up. Seems like I have very little time in my day. Hence, we are trying to get up earlier.

I’m reading…The Last of the Mohicans. Slowly getting through this one.

I’m cooking…today I am going to make apple pie. I bought 7 Granny Smith apples just for this pie.

I’m grateful for…God's provision, doctors who care, and a loving family.

I’m praying for…my husband's blood pressure, his job hunt, my Dad's heart, and various family members.

Thanks for visiting Second Star Academy. Come back again!

Going to bed and getting up earlier has been a struggle for me too. All we can do is keep trying I guess. lol

Have a great weekend!
