Homeschool Mother’s Journal: First Friday of February

MothersJournalIHN

It’s a privilege to join homeschool mothers across the country and across the ages (young and younger!) this week on www.iHomeschoolNetwork.com ‘s Homeschool Mother’s Journal.

 

In my life this week…

Flexibility was the key word.  Adapting schedules to life and life to schedules, it was all about slowing down when needed and pressing on when best.  Blessings abounded both directions as God kept time to His own beat.

In our homeschool this week…

We were reminded of the gift of homeschooling – lessons can continue even when life holds a yield sign.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Make all outside activities optional and lessons at home the core of education.  That way when life throws a curve ball, your world won’t come spinning to a (complete) stop.

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

Since a few health restrictions changed our week’s plan, we’ll be enjoying some art venues we haven’t had time or energy for.  My daughter entered an art contest through the public library, so we’ll be going to the artist’s reception and possibly a Downtown Art Walk and maybe even a trip to MOCA (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art)!

My favorite thing this week was…

Hearing the nurse say my mama’s brain was spot on when having to make a medical decision.  Sometimes the mama’s heart is so connected to the mama’s brain, it’s hard to tell them apart.

My favorite homeschool thing this week was …

Listening to my daughter rehearse her Shakespeare lines impromptu-ly and appropriately during a rousing game of Munchkin.

Things I’m working on…

Organizing my yarn stash and patterns for crochet projects.

Things I *should be* working on… Smile

High school transcript and course summaries. 

I’m grateful for…

Friends who understand. <3

I’m praying for…

All the homeschooling friends who are going through so many challenges of various sorts.

And the ladies at the BEECH retreat.  Such sweet times last year!

I rewarded my kids this week by…

Cup Cakes @SuzBroadhurst

Letting them eat leftover birthday cake as often as they wanted to.

Something I am ogling or have my eye on…

Well, this would have to be yarn.  In soft pastel springy colors.  Smile

Fluttering by for now on my way back to Ravelry … it’s too late today to work on the transcript anyway, Smile

Bye for now
