Homeschooling Mother's Journal

In my life this week...enjoying having my nephew here again.  He is a very good painter and I am enjoying my newly painted bedroom and bath.  Oh, and did I mention the closet?  He emptied it and painted it too.  It all looks so nice.  This week he is also working next door removing stucco off a neighbor's house and putting up siding.  He's a talented guy!

In our homeschool this week...we did school a few days and then Robyn went to her grandmother's for a visit.  That's the nice thing about homeschooling.  We couldn't do this when we feel like it in regular school.  Since she is going back to her Christian school for high school next year, she is taking advantage of this perk while she can :)

I am inspired  "...but the greatest of these is love."  (I Cor. 13:13)

Places we're going and people we're seeing...just visiting our parents and sticking around home.  Hubby is off for seven days starting today (crazy work schedule) and we are going to do some work in the garage.  It's so piled up we can't get our cars in there.  :(

My favorite thing this week was...starting a beauty blog with my 13 year old.  It's so much fun sharing our love of makeup and all things girly  :)

Things I'm working on...getting my bedroom and bathroom all clean and decorated now that the painting is done.  Going through clothes, shoes, handbags, and donating unwanted things, decluttering and just making the master bedroom look pretty :)

I'm cooking...with my nephew here there's another man to feed, so I am making more filling, manly meals.  He is working so hard I feel like I have to feed him well enough to keep his strength up.  lol

I am thankful

I'm praying

Thank you so much for stopping by Second Star Academy.  Please come and visit again and leave a comment telling me you were here.

Sounds like you have some projects that you are working on there! My pre-teen is interested in beauty as well...that would be something she's enjoy doing.

I too love the perk of being able to just pick up and go since we homeschool. We've not done that much but just knowing we can makes me smile.

How cool to have a nephew that will come and paint for you.

Blessings and Joy to You!
