The Homeschool Mother's Journal - October 24, 2011




In my life this week...
I'm posting the Journal entry 90 minutes before the deadline.  Does that tell you anything???

Had one of my husband's best friend's from high school come over for dinner last Thursday.  Haven't seen him in 13 years, meaning this is the first time my children ever met him.  They absolutely LOVED hearing stories about daddy in high school!!

In our homeschool this week...
We did school in our local public library two days in a row.  What a great thing it was to have a change of scenery!!!  The kids worked hard and didn't even mention they were hungry when it got past lunchtime!

Helpful homeschool advice to share...
Get out and do school in a different location!

I am inspired by...
The wisdom and insight of younger friends.

Places we are going/people we are seeing...
My husband isn't going anywhere.  He's only seeing fields and grain bins.  We, however, have gone to the library, my nephew's football game, co-op, etc.  I met up with the adult members of my family for a nice dinner last night...sans hubby. :(


My favorite thing this week was...
Having the long-absent cleaning lady come in to clean my house for company.  Sometimes, you have to admit that you can't do everything and still have family members survive.

I'm reading...
Still on "Inconceivable" by Carolyn & Sean Savage.  Interesting read.  Won't say much more.

I'm praying for...
Courting & engaged couples.  Overwhelmed moms.  Missionaries.

A quote to share...
"Wish I was there with you." -my husband.  *sigh*

We love to have school at the library. It is a wonderful change of scenery like you said. And the distractions aren't there like at our house. Also the environment is perfect for learning! Every book at your fingertips hehe

Going to the library for school sounds like a great idea for when we get into more wintery weather! I can sympathize with your husband's absence this week. My hubby's job requires long hours and I am waiting up for him to come home right now. I hope you can have some time together soon! ...stopping by from THMJ.
