In my life this week…
well, i've cried.
that's big for me since i'm not a crier.
but sometimes a mama just has to go take a bath at 10 am and cry her eyes out.
In our homeschool this week…
well, being the 'new' homeschooler i am, i was totally unprepared for columbus day.
sunday night i looked at the calendar and rushed to pinterest to find craft ideas.
at 10 pm , trying to print out columbusish stuff, i realized my printer was out of ink.
let's just say i'll be paying a lot more attention to the calendar in the future!
we did go on our first field trip!
we headed out to the fire station
(the oldest monkey chose not to go)
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
i ran across this article last week.
apparently it made several people angry, but i felt it was such a heartfelt and honest article, that i took no offense, just absorbed...
What’s working/not working for us…
well, my oldest is really fighting me on just about every aspect of school (and life, but that's not for now...) so i am rethinking our school days.
i maybe switching it all up and having blocks of time for each student, otherwise, he absorbs so much of my time and energy, i have very little for the other kids.
he drags a 20 mintue lesson into hoooouuurrrsss long.
my thought right now is to tell him "you have between 10-12 for my help. should you choose to throw a fit, refuse to do your work, etc. your time is up anyways"
Questions/thoughts I have…
if i should change history to more of a unit study approach?
can you please eat a cookie for me?
I’m grateful for…a Heavenly Father who, despite my discouragement, questioning and doubts,
has a plan and a purpose for us that is being weaved to reveal itself.
I’m praying for…
and for 10 lbs to be gone next week.
