The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
The beginning of my week did not start off well.   Normally I would have been extremely upset.  However, I focused on the Lord and was able to stay calm.  I really missed my daughter this week.  The rest of the week was pretty normal.

In our homeschool this week…
It was a straightforward week.  I did come to the conclusion that DS needs to concentrate more in Math.  So I've decided to increase the amount of hours we focus on Math and cut down on other subjects.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
Unfortunately, we did not have a car this week, so we went nowhere.  Bummer....we missed the scheduled field trip Friday.

What’s working for us…
Starting our day later.  Originally, I had planned for our school day to start at 8:30 am.  We  have been starting between 9 - 9:30 am this week and have been doing well.

I’m reading…
"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" ...slowly.

I’m cooking…
Nothing special this week, but do plan on making some Sweet Potato Muffins this weekend. Great for breakfast.

I’m praying for…
The family of the 11yr. old boy who was abducted and killed recently.  It has showed our nation that we must be proactive in matters of missing children.

  1. *sigh* When i found out the little boy was killed i couldn't sleep that night. I was thinking of my boys and how i would go insane if anything happened to them. I pray for his family, I don't know what there going through, but i know it must be the worst thing ever... it's just so dad.

  2. How horrible for the family. I will add them to my prayer list.

    The sweet potato muffins sound delicious. I think we'll give them a try!
