The Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week…Friday night Hubby and I celebrated our birthdays at P.F. Chang's. It was so yummy. I think I could make a meal of just the chicken lettuce wraps. Oh my!

In our homeschool this week…things are going smoothly. Daughter was given two days of assignments this week to do on her own and she did them and did them well. Saturday she attended an all day Red Cross babysitters class at our church, taught by our parish nurse. I think she is still too young to babysit, but thought it would be a good class for her to take, if for nothing else, for her own benefit as we leave her at home some now, as she is too old for a babysitter. She enjoyed the class.

I am inspired by…my husband who is in class all day with his new job and studying hard in the evenings. He is making great grades and learning many new things in order to support his family. I am so proud of him.

My favorite thing this week was…P.F. Chang's. Can you tell I really like their food?

Things I’m working on…being a good mother and wife. I am trying really hard to cook good meals for my family and clean up all those dirty dishes. I keep wishing for a kitchen fairy to come in behind me and do those dishes for me. Daughter is now unloading the dishwasher for me but I have yet to teach her how to properly load it and help with the dishes that have to be hand washed. I think I'm long overdue on this.

I’m reading…my Bible and too many blogs :/

I’m cooking…check out my posts on Monday to read my menus.

I’m grateful for…a few sunny days that we had this week. I love God's Vitamin D! I'm also grateful that those strong storms and tornadoes that passed over our country this week died out before they got here. We just had a little rain and blustery winds.

I’m praying for…hubby to continue to do well on his tests.

PF Changs...Oh, I forgot what else I read! Just kidding! LOL

My oldest took the Red Cross Babysitting course last year after he turned 12. There's quite a bit of information in the course - first aide, personal safety, etc. Very beneficial!

Dishes. My nemesis. Those things just never go away do they? Chinese sounds awfully good! We tried to make chicken wraps once. They turned out ok, but not as good as the restaurant!

I haven't been to pf chang's in years. Maybe I'm due for a trip there, I remember it tasting pretty good. Don't worry, you're daughter's not the only one over-due for being taught how to do a load of dirty dishes. My daughter unloads as well, but she has yet to learn how to load all the dishes.

well done to your hubby :) What are you reading in your bible ?
Happy Birthday !
I'm with you on the too many blogs to read :/ I'm working on finding a balance.
Baby sitting course sounds like an excellent idea
