The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week… Last Saturday, Hubbie came home for good from Afghanistan! Oh, and I had my birthday. Which I spent going to various doctors. Our youngest has walking pneumonia and I had a sinus infection. Happy Birthday to me, right? At least hubbie was here to pick up the pieces while I was out of commission.

In our homeschool this week… We really didn’t get much done in the past two weeks. Between my oldest’s ADHD testing, Hubbie coming home and then being sick (plus one full day I spent wrapping presents) we have only gotten the barebones of school work done. So, instead of taking off the next few weeks, we’re going to forge ahead and hopefully catch up a bit.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… No big tips this week. Oh wait, I thought of one! Watch Groupon.com and LivingSocial.com for your local area. I just got a family membership for our local zoo for $32, which is normally $75! Since it costs $30 for our family to go just one, it was an easy buy!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… So, last Saturday we had a special visitor! Santa came to our house and dropped off a very special delivery! Hubbie is home from Afghanistan, and we’re all still very excited and adjusting to having a male back in the house. We’re not really used to having ESPN on all the time, LOL.

I’m cooking… We made a huge batch of those little sausage “pigs in a blanket” this weekend and my girls have loved it!

I’m grateful for… our family being all together again for Christmas. Don’t really want anything else this year!

I’m praying for…friend’s little girl who is in congestive heart failure and BACK in the hospital. She desperately needs a new heart soon. Please pray for little Katy, that God provides for her quickly.
