The Homeschool Mother's Journal 4

In my life this week....

It was a great week.  We started the week out by laying under the stars as a family in our back yard while we had a nice fire going.  It was amazing.  We looked at star constellations and Charis had fun picking them out and creating them herself. 

I then got to spend some time with the ladies from my Bible study group.  I missed them over the summer and it was a refreshing time.  I can't wait for it to start up again.

And most exciting for us is that our daughter started her ballet class and she LOVES it!  She doesn't just like it, she loves it.  I know she dreamed of ballet last night and she is still dressed as a ballerina right now and has been practicing all day!

In our homeschool this week...

We are getting a bunch of books from the library because Charis wants to learn about the stars and horses!  So that is what we will be focusing on.  Reading about them will be fun and it will be interesting to see how many subjects we can cover while learning about them!

My favorite thing this week was...

Laying under the stars with my hubby and daughter!  They are the best ever!

Things I am working on...

Being more pro-active!  Getting the hard stuff done first.  I am good at not getting things done, especially since summer started.  I am getting back my groove and trying to stay on top of things.  My plate is so full, I sometimes wonder why I do everything.... writing, photography, homeschool... then I remember.  I love them all!

I am cooking...

Orange chicken in the crock pot!  We will see how that turns out!  If I like it, I will share the recipe soon!

I am praying for...
All the family members of those lost on 9/11 and for all of those who have given so much of themselves after that horrible day to rescue people and to take care of a city, state, and country that was hurt.  My heart especially goes out to all the children who lost moms and dads.  Thank you all.  I pray blessings over each of you.  I also pray for our enemy, that the Lord would meet them on their path like they did Paul and open their eyes to the truth.

I've been thinking a lot about 9/11 too, and the tremendous courage and sacrifices we saw during that time. Your daughter is adorable!

Your little ballerina is absolutely precious. Whenever I put my girl in a leotard I am amazed that it can be baggy! I guarantee that wouldn't be the case if I were wearing it. I am staring a new home school writing prompt link up party on Wednesday. I'd love for you to join me.

Oh, and welcome to the Hammock Tracks' Family Forum. I hope you'll introduce yourself and get to know the others. -Savannah
