Homeschool Journal

In my life this week… My husband was on lock down for 36 hours, lots of where is daddy and I miss daddy.
In our homeschool this week…my son helped my daughter with Math, was not told to just did, I almost cried.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…Make a schedule even if you cannot follow it perfectly, make a schedule so your kids know what is expected when you are not right there.
I am inspired by…
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…to Myrtle Beach for a family/marriage retreat. I am so excited to get away.
My favorite thing this week was…My hero calling and saying he was on his way home
What’s working/not working for us…My afternoons, that is when I plan to work with my 2 middle children while the youngest 2 take naps but by nap time I am toast and am not having the motivation I need. I am doing it but do not think they are getting my all and all.
Questions/thoughts I have…Nothing this week
Things I’m working on…I am hoping to take Saturday and work on some sewing. I am turning all Hope’s pillow case dresses into skirts for Grace. They do not love the pillow case dresses anymore.
I’m reading…I picked up So Long Insecurities yesterday for about the fifth time. I just can never seem to get into it. Great book I just am not taking the time I need
I’m cooking…pumpkin pudding for the fun of it, I love all things pumpkin
I’m grateful for…Our boyscout Troop, they have really taken my son under their wings and been amazing to him.
I’m praying for…a friend who is 21 weeks pregnant and having some issues. She is on bedrest right now and I know how hard that can be. She has four other little ones. Praying for this blessing to stay put and grow. Praying mom has all the help she needs to stay in one spot so baby can grow, praying for dad because after being in the hospital on bedrest for 5 weeks I understand the strain it puts on dad.

Those nights when daddy can't come home are difficult. :) We understand a few of them here too. Hope you guys have a great week and thank you for the sacrifices your family makes to keep mine safe!!! Stopping by from the MHJ.

We go to Surfside Beach south of Myrtle Beach during Thanksgiving week and sometimes hit the Black Friday sales there.  Have fun.
