Homeschooling Mother's Journal

  • In my life this week…has been spent in our time-share condo in Gatlinburg.  Hubby came with us and spent one night and then returned home because he has to work.  Daughter and I have been having a fun week together with a little school thrown in for good measure!
  • In our homeschool this week…we did quite a bit of school in-between having fun in Pigeon Forge and vacationing in Gatlinburg. 
  • Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…it's awesome to be able to take school on the road.  We use SOS and it is on our laptops and it makes homeschooling very easy at home or away from home.
  • I am inspired by…the beautiful mild weather we have been having.  Made our day at Dollywood wonderful.
  • Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…we've been shopping, visited our favorite bookstore in Pigeon Forge, saw the Avengers on Tuesday, have gone to Dollywood, and are going to see the new Dark Shadows movie today and eat dinner out on our last night here.  We were joined at Dollywood by my MIL and her friend and we all had a blast together.
  • My favorite thing this week was…probably Dollywood followed by playing with our new nail polishes and make-up.
  • I’m reading…hubby bought me a Kindle for Mother's Day.  I got it early and haven't tried it yet.  I can't wait.  I'm hoping I will read more now.  I know I can get books from the library for free to put on it.
  • I’m cooking…at our condo we have eaten quite a lot of meals, because I don't like eating out that much, except we did get some yummy chicken from Chick-Fila one day after a tiring day of shopping.  And the food at Dollywood is out of this world!
  • I’m grateful for…my week with my daughter.  We've had a lot of fun together.
  • I’m praying for…continuing good grades for my husband on his tests at work, daughter and I to eat healthier and to exercise and the ability to finish school in a timely manner so we can enjoy the summer off.  And friends who are leaving in a few weeks for a mission trip to Asia.
