The Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week…well, this week went by quickly! Nothing much to report here. Still pinching myself that hubby got a great job. God is good!

In our homeschool this week…just enjoying teaching my soon-to-be 13 year old! She loves homeschooling so it makes teaching her a joy!

I am inspired by…the calm after the storm. We had some strong winds and rain go through last night and today the sun is shining and it is beautiful outside. God is good!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…going to my MIL's tomorrow and going to play some boardgames, eat some fun snackie things and fellowship.

My favorite thing this week was…listening to daughter's itunes with her. I remember when I was her age and certain songs meant so much to me too.

What’s working/not working for us…believe it or not, I'm getting to bed a bit earlier. I am waking up when hubby does about 4 or 4:30, which is way to early to get up so I usually get on my ipod touch and play solitaire a while and then go back to sleep. I'm still sleeping too late. I think I need to set my alarm clock. But, then again, I may just need the sleep.

Things I’m working on…still working on this house. Well, more like THINKING about all the stuff that needs to get done and then doing NOTHING. Ugh.

I’m reading… my Bible daily and sometimes getting back to Mansfield Park. I haven't been in much of a book mood for weeks. I read a lot online it seems. I spend way too much time on Pinterest! Check out my boards. I have some really neat stuff there.

I’m cooking…yummy meals for my family. Check my menu every Sunday night or Monday morning. I always post my menu for the week. I don't always follow it as written. I often switch things around. I post recipes too.

I’m grateful for…husband's job, God's blessings, friends and family. God is good!

I’m praying for…friends who are unemployed and looking for work, marriages that are crumbling, and one of our pastors who is leaving to be lead pastor at a nearby church. He will be missed.

Thank you for stopping by Second Star Academy at Chaos Cottage. Please come by again!
