Homeschool Mothers Journal

In my life this week…We finally received the court paperwork for Jerry. It does not change anything but until we had the paper in hand we could not enroll him in DEERS. I cannot wait to have him on insurance.
In our homeschool this week…we had our first science lab. All I saw was sugar being burned and ammonia. The smell was horrible.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…Do not wait until the last minute to find things for your science lab or your husband may come up with his own ideas.
I am inspired by…a older couple in my church who I get to talk to every Wednesday night. They study the Bible together. It is so neat to see them together.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Myrtle Beach for a marriage retreat. Can you imagine, hours setting next to my hero. I am so excited.
My favorite thing this week was…my husband finding a AMAZING double stroller for $65. He found it at the thrift shop. It looks brand new. We needed it more than I can say.
What’s working/not working for us…the new double stroller.
Questions/thoughts I have… how am I suppose to teach my son Spanish when I do not understand it myself.
Things I’m working on…keeping us on our schedule. Things seem to run more smoothly and we get so much more done.
I’m reading…Shepherding a Childs heart. I am hoping to get more into it this weekend.
I’m cooking…chocolate/pumpkin cake and would you believe I did not get a picture of it. SHOOT, I just realized that.
I’m grateful for…the Army, who is paying for our weekend getaway. I cannot wait to get away and relax. I know it will be crazy busy and hard having 6 kids in one hotel room.
I’m praying for…a precious baby I met recently who has a brain tumor. I look at her chubby cheeks and think how beautiful she is and then I hear her mom give a update and struggle not to cry. Praying for this precious baby and her family.

Interesting science lab. Our science experiments have mainly consisted of water and balloons this year. A lot less smelly :)

Your description of your feelings for Your Hero is so moving! It almost brought tears to my eyes -- literally.

 I decided to learn Spanish WITH my kids and I'm hoping that will enable me to help them. Of course they already had a couple years of lesson at public school so they are still ahead of me *sigh*
