The Homeschool Mother's Journal

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…I didn't accomplish many of the things that I wanted to, but I did get my house somewhat back in order.

In our homeschool this week…we still haven't gotten into a more regular schedule...but there is lots of planning and researching going on right now on my part. :)

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…Having a plan/schedule...ANY plan, is better than nothing because it helps your day to flow.

I am inspired by…Music. It lifts me up and helps me open my heart to God, and motivate me on my sluggish days.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…This week we have a beach day today, a wedding tomorrow, and another church to visit on Sunday. We had a lovely time at my cousin's over the fourth of July holiday. I wish we lived closer so we could get together for cards more often!

My favorite thing this week was…Jaxon saying "Love You" without me saying it first. Jaxon pointing to the computer where ESPN was pulled up with a yankee's article and he said "baseball" clear as day andI didn't even know he knew that word! Jaxon wanting to help with Lily every time I ask one of the older kids. Coby volunteering to help with everything lately. Watching Caitlyn play with her babies and barbies. Lily interacting more and smiling like crazy! Finding a source of Lilies for my garden!

What’s working/not working for us…What's not working for us is ditching our schedule...although the break has been nice...I'm hoping we'll get a little more serious next week...I want to do lots of projects and fun stuff though...I don't want to hit the schedule hard until Mid-August so the kids get a good break and really have a fun, enjoyable summer.

Questions/thoughts I have…I'm curious to see if God will provide for us to register for our triathlon.

Things I’m working on…knitting, sewing, organizing our closet

I’m reading…Anne of Green Gables...still...less than 100 pages left!

I’m cooking…Navy bean soup for dinner tonight, hopefully some banana muffins...and maybe cupcakes or scones just because they're yummy!

I’m grateful for…My kids, my husband, our health, our home, our puppy (who's not a puppy at all)

I’m praying for…provision, salvation for loved ones, patience, and wisdom.

"verse 1:
would you believe me if i said...
that we are the ones who can make the change
in the world today...
would you believe me if i said...
that all of your dreams in your heart
can come true... today...
would you believe me if i said...
that life could be all that you want it to be... today...

and if i had wings i would fly
'cause all that i need, You are
and if the world caved in around me
to You i'd still hold on
cause You're all that i believe
and the one that created me
JESUS.. because of You.. i'm free

verse 2:
would you believe me if i said...
that God can make miracles happen today
would you believe me if i said...
that you dont need to wait for the answers before..
you step out in faith..
would you believe me if i said
that nothing is ever IMPOSSIBLE.. for God..

just live your life.. with God inside
you wont regret one moment of it
and give all that you can for God... for God

Love the kiddos milestones, so fun!! I just finished Anne of Green Gables for the first time, and I want to move on to the next in the series, but... so much to do, it's hard to find time to sit and read for enjoyment!
