The Homeschool Mother’s Journal~June 24

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

I am continuing to declutter here. This week I have started working on my kitchen counters. They are such a catch all for any and all things. I told Larry the other day maybe I just needed to cut the counter off and then I would not set things on it. Did you all know I am a great piler? Really, it takes certain skill to be able to pile things the way I do. Just let me know if you’d like to hire me to pile your stuff! (you know you wish you had my skills!)

In our homeschool this week…

We are catching up on some units that needed finishing and doing a lot of reading!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

we went to our church dinner on Tuesday night. It was a nice meal and we sat with my parents and our best friends! On Wednesday we went to our library’s Peter Rabbit program. It was horribly hot! Part of the program was outside in the Children’s garden. I was a bit disappointed in the program. It was not as nice as those held in prior years.

We did get the pool for the first time yesterday and I have the sunburn to prove it. It seems we will be spending a lot of time at the pool since I seem to have two fish here that love to swim!

We are going to see the Turtlesinger at our library this afternoon if all goes well!

Otherwise we have not seen too many people since my car has a leak and needs to be repaired. We are getting it fixed this weekend.

My favorite thing this week was…

We took a walk on Sunday night. Whenever we walk we take a couple of plastic grocery bags to collect any cans we find.  As we were walking along Kaden spied a can that had been run over. It was very flat and you could only see the symbol on the can. He says look a Korean soda can! It was a Pepsi can! He thought the Pepsi symbol looked like the symbol on the Korean flag.

I’m reading…

I just finished reading Breath of Angel and I have to say I really liked this book. It is the first in a series and I am looking forward to future books! I am now reading the Addie Slaughter: The Girl Who Met Geronimo.  I am so behind on my Bible study The Ministry of Motherhood

I’m cooking…

I want to do some freezer cooking but I need to do some grocery shopping! I am running out of so many things!

I’m grateful for…

My family and friends. I need to remember to be thankful for them each and every day!

I’m praying for…

Grace…..it seems I need lots of it these days!

Well they are not best friends yet, they fight like cats (Kaden always yells “cat fight” when they start) and sound like a heard of elephants running down the hall. But they seem to be tolerating each other at least some of the time since I found them both sleeping in the same chair together the other day!
