In My Life This Week
This week is wrapping up with me feeling utterly drained. You know how sometimes Life Drama just seems to swallow you whole? From every direction. Yeah. That's how it's been feeling lately.
In Our Homeschool This Week
Oh gosh. Getting back into the groove after Spring Break was a tuffy. I think Mommy needs a Spring Break to recover from Spring Break!
After waffling for months, I finally committed. And ordered Bristel's curriculum for next year. She'll be primarily doing Abeka. Mostly because we had a hefty credit on our account, I already own the teacher's manuals and we qualified for free shipping!
Now I've gotta figure out exactly what I'm gonna do for the Going-Into-5th-Grader. Why did I decide to be eclectic again?! It was so much easier when I just ordered everything from one place!
Places We're Going and People We're Seeing
I had dinner out with a sweet, homeschool mommy friend this week. We went Mexican. And it was just wonderful. The food. The fellowship. Everything! So much so...that she and I decided we're going to try and launch a monthly Homeschool Mommy's Night Out in our area. Yikes?!
Fave Thing This Week
Holding hands and walking laps with my Hubby. Cheering my Baseball Boy (he has a 909 batting average. I know this for a fact. He reminds me a gazillion times a day :). Snuggling my Binti (Swahili for daughter. I like to randomly show off my bi-lingual-ness :) And listening to my Miracle Boy sporadically linking two words together. In spite of the Life Drama chewing me up and spitting me out...it's been a sweet week. I find that sometimes the drama helps give clarity for the blessings. Ya know.
What's Working/Not Working for Us
Writing. Bleh. He hates it. I hate that he hates it. We both wind up thoroughly frustrated. I really need to find something that works for both of us.
Homeschool Questions Thoughts I Have
Next year's curriculum! What to do... What to dooooooo...
And am I totally insane to think I can actually homeschool two of them?!
These are the questions keeping me up nights.
I thought it was hilarious that she was all bundled up in hat, mittens, and winter coat. With bare feet!
Spring has been playing hide n' seek with us. More hiding than anything!
But today is sunny and 60ish.
Maybe I can finally put those mittens away and she can keep naked tootsies without risking frost bite?
