The Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week…Today we are at Dollywood. I wrote this post yesterday. This week, we were up early three mornings due to SAT testing. Had to go to bed early as well. Fortunately, I slept pretty well and even got a nap in here and there. I would love to do this every day. I get so much more accomplished when I get my day started early. I think I even sleep better if I can get to sleep at a decent hour. My knees and back have been giving me grief and I may very well be in one of those motorized scooters at Dollywood today. Yep, I'm getting old.

In our homeschool this week…we had SAT's three morning this week at our umbrella school. So I gave daughter those days off from her homeschooling. It is Thursday as I write this and we are doing quizzes and a couple lessons in Language Arts. Friday (today) we have off because we are going to the sneak peek at Dollywood. We will probably do school on Saturday though. I love the flexibility of homeschooling.

I am inspired by…warm temps. It was almost 85 on the last day of winter here. Very strange but nice.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Dollywood!

My favorite thing this week was…spending time with family on Saturday and celebrating St. Pat's day. It was a memory in the making.

Things I’m working on…same ole same ole.

I’m reading…nothing. Boring, I know.

I’m cooking…yummy stuff. Trying a new recipe with Potatoes O'Brien in it. That would have been good on St. Pat's day too.

I’m grateful for…my husband's job and his gifted brain that the Lord has given him. He has really stepped out of his comfort zone into this new job and is learning new things every day! Also, I am amazed at my daughter's computer and photography skills which she obviously got from her daddy. She amazes me!

I’m praying for…a cousin who has desperately been trying to get disability for years and keeps getting turned down, friends who are have problems in their marriage, that my husband has the energy to not only spend long days at work but energy to get the things done around here to get our house market ready. Yes, we still want to sell the house.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Please come back again. Have a terrific weekend.

I had to focus on going to bed early before I could wake up early. Once I got in that groove, getting up early was natural. Maybe could work for you, too?
