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.

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
