A Homeschool Momma's Journal

In my life this week…
Our family cooked and fed tornado volunteers at JFWC.

In our homeschool this week…
We've taken the week off school and just read, relaxed, and worked around the house.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share...
Volunteering and real life experience do wonders for maturing children and teens.

My favorite thing this week was…
Walking away from a yard sale with my 14 year old daughter with our arms around each other.  A lady saw us and commented, "I love to see things like that."  I'm a blessed momma.

What’s working for us…
Set times for reading/rest time and for creative time.

Things I’m working on…
Making a loose schedule for the summer.
Researching high school options for Emily.
Catching up on laundry.

I’m reading…

I’m grateful for…
Low prices at rummage sales.
Amy bought 4 pairs of jeans for fifty cents each.
Three fit!  Yay!

I’m praying for…

A video to share…

We cried over this video this week. 
It came out while I was expecting my second child. 
We wanted a girl sooooo badly. 
We got her!
Daddy cried.


  1. Hurray for bargains, but way bigger hurray for loving mama-daughter relationships!

  2. I love Liz Curtis Higgs! Can't wait to see your review for that! Yard sales are awesome and my kids love them! :) Thanks for coming by Simply Helping Him :) It is nice to find kindred spirits ;)


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
