Homeschool Mama Journal

  • In my life this week…
    We made our last hurrah trip to Disney on Monday and Tuesday.  We stayed over night at Coronado Springs hotel.  It was a nice hotel.  The girls really enjoyed themselves and even got to go swimming in the nice pool.  I was miserably sick with a head cold, but toughed it out.  It was fun to watch the girls in all their excitement. They all got to go on their favorite rides at the parks. Mabel and Evelyn love Rock-n-Roll Coaster, Gretchen loves the People Mover at Magic Kingdom and Vera loves the Merry Go Round.  On our way to Magic Kingdom
  • In our homeschool this week…
    We made great family memories with the girls, it was a wonderful year having the Season Pass.  We will do it again in a couple years.  We did minimal school work b/c I was not well.  We kept it to the basic’s, reading, writing, and math. The girls are finishing the week of with a research project.  Each one is picking an insect to do a presentation on.
  • Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
    Don’t sweat the small stuff, when you are sick you can still get some work in make it count.  Watch educational movies and do read alouds!!!
  • Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
    We went up to Disney and saw lot of characters.  Fun times.  We usually never do the character picture spots, but we did some this time and the girls enjoyed it.  This was them with the characters from Wreck it Ralph.

    friends that are dealing with some tough areas that affect their marriage.  I pray that God will give them wisdom and good judgement in handling all those touch areas.
    a friend who is so close to making a book deal for a devotional that she’s spent many years preparing, God has his hand in the deal and it will work it for good.
    my hubby and his brother to have safe flying and are able to finish the job with accuracy and patience needed dealing with the changing minds of the farmers.

  1. I’m really enjoying reading this. Thanks for sharing openly about all these different things. So real. I appreciate that. Plus, it’s good to still have a bit of “contact”, even if it is all through blog readings!
