The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…seems like I've done a lot of laundry this week, a little housework, lots of cooking and eating, a nap here and there, but nothing towards packing and getting the home ready for the market. I'm starting to believe we will be here all winter...

In our homeschool this week…Robyn did a good job of catching up her school work this week so that she could enjoy a few days of fall break.

I am inspired by…my daughter's sense of humor and her ability to mimic people. She's a natural. She now can do the Super nanny and she cracks us all up.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…I've been to the grocery store and that's about it. I told daughter I would take her shopping (she has saved up quite a bit of money), and my back is just not cooperating. Maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day!

My favorite thing this week was…hearing today that hubby has an interview next Friday for a very good job. Pray that they pick him. Pick him, pick him!!!

What’s working/not working for us… still having difficulty getting up early. Now that the cooler days and nights are here, it makes it even harder to get up. I am so not a morning person. I worked 19 years after high school graduation and you would think after all those years I would be use to it. After becoming a stay at home mom, it didn't take me long at all to get use to the later hours and sleeping in.

I’m reading…didn't read much of anything but my Bible this week and the newspaper.

I’m cooking…I made a wonderful crumbly apple pie this week and still have a few slices left. I have enough Granny Smith apples and crumbly topping to make another, but I am just not in the mood. I'm not crazy about apple pie. I like it, but I guess it is just not decadent enough for me :)

I’m grateful for…a loving family, a loving Father, and God's provision for us.

I’m praying for… hubby's blood pressure, my dad's heart, my mil's safe trip, and my hubby's employment.

Thanks for stopping by Chaos Cottage and Second Star Academy. Have a great weekend with your family!

Oh, no! Back pain is the worse! It effects everything! I hope you're feeling better soon!

Morning have us dragging out of bed too! And we're going to bed and getting up at the same time! Something about the cool mornings that just make staying in a warm bed much more appealing!

Thanks for stopping in at my end.

Yep - those were bite sized Nutter Butters :)

Your apple pie sounds yummy!

Happy Homeschooling!
