The Homeschool Mother’s Journal…








  • In my life this week…

I have been crazy busy…

Shocking I know…

The girls started dance and loved it!!!

We had a few doctors appts…

enjoyed the company of friends..

laughed, and cried a bit..



  • In our homeschool this week…

We did really good..

Middle Monkey started some new math..

and enjoyed specials at the local public school.

Little Monkey is enjoying her new handwriting book..

We are having a blast with the new Anatomy book.. and the

new Spanish curriculum we are trying.. (look for reviews soon)

We had fun at Co-op…

Enjoyed some colorful fun at 4H!!!

It was a very full week for us!!!



  • Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Step back and look at the situation before

over thinking it…

Weigh the pros and cons!

Don’t get discouraged!



  • I am inspired by…

The people around me, that remind me everyday that

I can accomplish the impossible..

That I am doing amazing things already!



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

This next week we are going to

go to the library, dance, cub scouts,

doctor appts, Co-op, and piano!



  • My favorite thing this week was…

watching my kids enjoy and take in the

anatomy we are doing. They are doing so

good with it!



  • What’s working/not working for us…

challenging ourselves!



  • Questions/thoughts I have…

My thoughts this week go back to my

middle child. She has decided to try out public school again..

She hasn’t been to a public school in 3 yrs. She has enjoyed the

special classes she has been in the last few weeks..

Since she struggles with social situations, and making friends..

I think this may be a great thing for her. However, I’m scared this

could be the worse thing for her. I’m worried that it could

set us back with all the work we have done..

So, I’m apprehensive but want to let her try!

Stay tuned to see how it works out!




  • Things I’m working on…

Painting Little Monkey’s room, and decorating it

with a LalaLoopsy theme.



  • I’m reading…

Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich

I’ve been waiting for this book to come to my library!




  • I’m cooking…

Not sure what is going to be for dinner..

Thinking Cheese burgers.. I’ve been craving them.

But of course mine would be without the bun!



  • I’m grateful for…

A great mom, that helps me stay on track..

reminds me when I haven’t eaten, or need more protein.



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

Some pictures from our 4H project we did

Oh, I have been WAY over thinking things lately and questions myself too much about homeschooling! You would think being our 9th year I would know this stuff, but...I got some great advice from more experienced, been there homeschoolers and I'm on my way!

All the best with your get healthy changes. I am having such a hard time getting back to that too! Ugh! Spring hurry up!
