Homeschool Mother’s Journal, week 1

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

It’s been a little crazy.  We went up to Dallas last week to help Jeff’s Mom after surgery.  So we didn’t get much schooling in last week, and then we had Labor Day this week.  So I’ve been feeling like it’s all catch up all the time.  Housework, cooking, laundry, OH THE LAUNDRY!

In our homeschool this week…

We’re fighting to get back into the zone.  I had a lot of various appointments this week, which threw everything off.

My favorite thing this week was…

Small groups at our church starting back up.  I’ve missed getting together with them every week.

What’s working/not working for us…

Having school in the morning and getting started “promptly-ish.”

Things I’m working on…

Finding that groove.

I’m reading…

“Making Music in the Kitchen” for review.  I love the idea behind it, but am struggling every now and then with the writing, not because it’s bad but because I want to be reading something ridiculously not on topic and fantastic.  In other words some piece of fluff reading.

I’m praying for…

The people who have been affected by all of the wildfires in the area.  One family I’ve known since a kid who ran a campground my boys went to lost their home and the entire camp in the fires.  So far in the Bastrop fire 1300 houses have been destroyed, and in the Leader/Cedar Park fires I think it was about 50.  There is so much danger of wildfires right now there is talk of banning grilling outside and anything that looks like a fire.  We desperately need rain.  So very very desperately.

  1. O'my godness! Yes, prayers defiantly sent!!!
    I kinda understand the rain issue, we live in Florida and our river is almost all dried up 😦
    ~> On another note we also have been struggling to get back in the groove after the long 3 day weekend :/ About all I have managed to get my kids to do is play some educational games on the computer, but i'm not complaining at least they have learned a lil ((blush)) My favorite is Spelling City & Learning games for kids ~> Great Freebies! 🙂
    anyways,I'll be praying we all get some rain ((hugs))

  2. These fires are something else! We began our first week of homeschooling with an evacuation. Luckily our home was safe, but we know not every one was that lucky. We live out here in Leander and this was the third fire in our area. Just scary. I'm praying for all those poor people in Bastrop. Stay safe.

  3. I will also keep the people of Texas in my prayers. I hope that the rain that is so desperately needed starts to fall soon.

    I hope this is the week that you are able to easily slip back into the groove.
