Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…sickness, sickness and more sickness. Monday was Hope, Tuesday was Grace, Wednesday was Michael, Thursday was me and today Faith is not feeling good.
In our homeschool this week…my daughter learned about soil. I thought it was neat because Michael is studying soil for Boy scouts
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share… do not be afraid to take a day off; do not be afraid to work on a Saturday. This is why we homeschool.
I am inspired by…friends who keep sharing Christ love even through hard times. Who are open and honest about how they feel.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…my son has a Camporee this weekend through boyscouts. I have not seen him this excitement in a long time
My favorite thing this week was… watching my son help my daughter with her science. I love how it makes him feel.
What’s working/not working for us…we have drifted from our schedule this year and I need to get back to being strict with the younger ones on keeping a time line. Otherwise a child can take hours to do one lesson.
Questions/thoughts I have…how do you handle it when a child is falling because they are not trying.
Things I’m working on…cleaning out closets. I have one down and four more to go. I am hoping to work on it this weekend. I need to get rid of a bunch of things they are not wearing.
I’m reading…Warrior Sons, how to pray for your son. I hope that is the name.
I’m cooking…I made chicken courdon blue. It was amazing. I will be sharing it this week.
I’m grateful for…friends who will bring over ice and toilet paper when I am sick.
I’m praying for…my sons weekend. I pray he has a great weekend and has fun and meets new friends.
A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

**Did you know I was giving away free Chick-fil-A? I am right here.

We had sickness yesterday. Gastroenteritis.. bleh! Fortunately, raw honey and ginger kill it off in a matter of hours. The kids were back up playing and bickering by afternoon. :P 

Hope ya'll are feeling better QUICKLY!

Dropping by from the HMJ.

Oh, no! Sounds like a ROUGH week with illnesses! Hopefully this weekend bring rest and health make to everyone in your family!

Falling because of not trying? Is it something that has a natural consequence? SOMETIMES letting things go until that time is a very good lesson about doing what you need to do when you need to do it. Other times it's necessary to CREATE consequences and/or encourage trying...or finding out WHY they're not trying in the first place. Too challenging? Too easy? Not interested?

Nothing like having a sickness go through the entire family, not fun!  Hope everyone is on the mend.  Stopping by from HMJ, have a great weekend!
