Mother’s Homeschool Journal (#2)

  • In my life this week… I jumped through hoops of fire for my son to be able to go to the school that suits him best and get the services he needs . . .
  • In our homeschool this week… the girls have decided on the schedule of Fridays off  if they finish ALL school by Thursday–so they worked extra hard and were done by Wednesday.  A deal is a deal–so next week I will monitor just how many pages of each subject they are doing.
  • Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… if you aren’t on pinterest–start–I found lots of totally cool Lego/math fusion that was very exciting for my little guy!  (feel free to follow me–renee baude or is it joyful mom, or joyfulmombaude . . . too many logins and passwords in my life)
  • I am inspired by… my garden–it grows and thrives despite my neglect.
  • Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… we had a very special playdate today and we will have another on Monday.
  • My favorite thing this week was… listening to my big girl play the keyboard with her new sustain pedal–it was beautiful.
  • What’s working/not working for us… getting to bed by 7:30, me reading nightly again (it has been too long) and lights out at 8:00.
  • Questions/thoughts I have… I wish that I would have started blogging sooner.
  • Things I’m working on…  I’m starting a book club and a writing club, scribe tribe, at our Parish school–could it be the beginnings of a coop?????
  • I’m reading… The 10 habits of Happy Mothers–chapter 4.  (for the Mom’s group)
  • I’m cooking… or not cooking.  Soup in the crock pot, BLT’s and clearing out the freezer.
  • I’m grateful for… my husband for so many reasons–I love you.
  • I’m praying for… all of the families that have been affected by 9/11.
  • A photo, video, link, or quote to share… the girls have been giving me flowers almost every day . . .
