The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
another overly busy / hectic week. Added to the top of what we already have going on – our inlaws are having their yearly “Octoberfest” tomorrow so we’ve tried to help some over there. Don’t get me wrong – we LOVE to help and the Octoberfest is AWESOME…just tired and stressed. LOL Their Octoberfest is a Christian ministry as well, which just makes it that much more of a bonus for those of us who are believers. 🙂

In our homeschool this week…
just doing what we do…nothing special to share…

What’s working / not working for us…
nothing springs to mind here either…could it be that my mind isn’t “on” yet this morning? Maybe… LOL

Questions/thoughts I have…
did people know they could fly thru a cloud before they did it the first time? 

My favorite thing this week was…
snuggling with my 3-year-old when he first got out of bed…I think once or twice this week. He’s “getting older” and isn’t snuggling as much in the morning…I enjoy when he does!

I am inspired by…
“those who have gone before” and HELP those coming after. This hits a couple of areas for me. First, last night we attended our monthly homeschool group meeting where they had different rooms you could go in to hear someone talk about different subjects, like attitude, discipline, phonics, newbies and high school. I chose to go to the high school one – which actually a good friend of mine was also the “speaker” (two bonuses for me – YAY!). It was nice to hear her share some of her story, along with information from others. Second, it’s nice when ladies practice “Titus 2” and help those coming after – not only in homeschooling, but in life…

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
this was posted on facebook and is AWESOME! You *have* to try it…it won’t be what you are expecting, I guarantee it!


Have a wonderfully blessed day!

    I just LOVE the photo! Wow! 🙂

    Have a great time at Octoberfest. Fall is a fun, yet busy time of year. 🙂 Our Church is having an Italian Night tomorrow. I almost feel obligated to attend and support it since I’m Italian, lol! :-))

    Have a great weekend!
    Many blessings,

    I miss the days when the little ones would wake up and snuggle with me! 🙂
