The Homeschool Mother’s Journal:




  • In my life this week…

this week was interesting..

I ended up with the flu, and was sleeping

most of my week away…

I have never slept so much in my life!

Almost 72 hrs straight! Craziness!


Monkey Man struggled with a cold

this week too..

Middle Monkey started Public School full time..

and seems to be doing pretty good so far.
(I’ll write a post on that soon)


The rest of us are trying to adjust..

but doing pretty good..



  • In our homeschool this week…

This week we managed to stay on top of

school despite the sickness..

Most everything my now 2 monkey’s does..

is independent.. so they got that stuff done,

and daddy helped with Anatomy and

anything they needed help with… Until

Thursday when I was feeling more human.

Due to our sickness, and a storm with freezing rain

co-op was canceled this week.. and we had to cancel piano lessons

due to sickness..



  • Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

When sick, if you can have your hubby help with anything you can’t

do yourself.. then your kids don’t get out of routine, and school is

still on track!



  • I am inspired by…

My fellow homeschooling moms I have might IRL and Online.
I have met some truly amazing and inspirational people.
When I think I can’t do something, I just ask one of them for advice,
or help with where I should go.. They are amazing!



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

This next week we will be going to

Scouts, Library, Dance, Co-op, and 4H

maybe a movie on Friday..

and next Saturday Monkey Man crosses over to

Boy Scouts!



  • My favorite thing this week was…

How nicely my Monkey Man tried to take care of me..

making sure I had tissues, and water.

He even read to me a few times!



  • What’s working/not working for us…

We are getting used to Middle Monkey being gone

during the day..



  • Questions/thoughts I have…

Do any of you have any kids that you send to

public school, and some you homeschool?

This is a whole new things for me!



  • Things I’m working on…

Catching up after being sick for a week..

I have cookie orders to count and get in..

Housework to catch up on..



  • I’m reading…

Book 5 in the Virgin River series I’m reading..



  • I’m cooking…

Not sure what is for dinner.. kind of craving taco salad




  • I’m grateful for…

My mom’s help this past week..

Getting Middle Monkey to school and picking her up..

taking care of the other two, and me…

and just being a huge help!

My mom is amazing!!!



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

I picture from us skating last weekend..

Little Monkey trying to get the hang of it.. and

Middle Monkey just loving it!

Oh, now I want taco salad....::sigh:: LOL We're having homemade pizza tonight.

Glad your feeling better! How sweet and grown-up of Monkey Man to watch over you!

All my kids have been home, but next year my oldest may be heading off for 10th grade. We've found a school that will give him a great opportunity to learn computers and we're excited about that, but I know we'll miss him. ;)
