Hello Fall

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

I would really like to know where the days go.  Honestly, it was just Monday…..It seems as though the house is one big mess that is barely contained.  Too busy to clean, and that really isn’t a good thing.

In our homeschool this week…

It was the first official week of college for the Tayler.  She survived.  I survived.  Both noteworthy accomplishments.  She found a much faster way home and her bus drops her right by the house.

Last week was a bit of a rough week with Hunter.  This week, covered in prayer by the ladies at church, was much smoother.

Evan asked someone to homecoming.  He sang to her.  Made all the girls in the Choir room cry.  Yes, his voice is *that* good.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Someone called me yesterday because she knew of a homeschooler that was struggling.  I told her to pray with this woman and read to her Philippians 4: 11-13.  To give her a hug and let her know that no matter if the kids are rolling their eyes at you all day, if one or five of them won’t obey, if you just burnt dinner, and the dog ran away……  If you opened the washer and the laundry was mildewed *again*, or the mountain of laundry on the couch is 3 days high…….  God will give you the strength to get through the day.  One moment at a time, relying on Him.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

Not too much going on right now, as we approach fall, things wind down and we begin to stay closer to home.

Evan is singing the National Anthem tonight at the Homecoming game with Scarlet and Gold ( the ensemble choir )  I think that is pretty cool.  Oh…. I and I have a chauffer gig tomorrow night between Baskin Robbins, and the Homecoming dance. 

What is my payment you ask?  I get a very clean truck to drive in.  Smile

What’s working/not working for us…

Not sure that there is anything we are doing right now that isn’t working for us…. pretty much everything seems to be going smoothly

Questions/thoughts I have…

I am feeling frustrated with Hunter’s lack of progress in spelling.  I keep telling myself that consistency is the key, and once the light bulb goes off in his head it is going to be easy peasy….  but there is something that just is niggling at the back of my brain….  I can’t really articulate it…. it is just there.

Things I’m working on…

Having purposeful, gospel filled, friendships.  I want to give the encouragement of the Word, not just my opinion of things.

I’m reading…

Colossians.  We are studying it in Church.  I just keep reading it and letting it marinate.

I’m grateful for…

Kids who love the Lord.  Even when they are mad at each other.

I’m praying for…

A struggling homeschool mom.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

One thought on “Hello Fall

  1. I love the pic of your children when they were little. Just precious! The time does go by too quickly, doesn’t it?

    Thank you for sharing the Philipians verse. There are some days that I can really use that, as well.

    Many blessings,
