Homeschool Mother's Journal #5

Life has been interesting to say the least.  I can't wait until things slow down a bit!  Wait!  It is only supposed to get busier from what I hear!!  Nuts!!!  hehe  Anyway, life is challenging, but God is good, all the time. So here goes...

In My Life This Week...

Our week started with a ministry meeting on Saturday that was all day.  It was a great blessing and nice time away from normal routines.  I am now officially working with Stairways International Ministry, helping them with all things technical, clerical and nerdish!  Fun!  I am excited and blessed to be part of this ministry.

The week moved on with lots of work to do for the ministry, as well as work for my own jewelry business, homeschooling and regular home life.  Thursday night is ballet/tap and this week we get the pleasure of seeing our little Muppin dance for creative night.  I love seeing her flourish and be so happy.  She is a true performer regardless of her skill level (she is only 7)!

In Our Homeschool This Week...

We worked on a lot of reading, math and cursive as well and taking the time to learn about Christmas.  I love this time of year, it is my favorite time.  Today we are starting to make our traditional Christmas candy and treats and Muppin will be learning more math and reading by reading and measuring out all the ingredients.  Great hands-on learning. Next week we will be delivering them as gifts to all our friends.

People We Are Going To See...

This weekend grammy and poppi will be coming to town.  Well, they will be camping at a nearby campsite for a few days (only a 1/2 hour away) so we will still get to see them a lot.  Then next week sometime they will be coming to our house for a few days.  Muppin is so excited she can barely stand it!

Things I Am Working On...

I am working on my jewelry a lot and hope to be selling it on Etsy soon.  I have my site with a couple snow flakes but it has been difficult to get pictures of my jewelry uploaded due to computer problems.  I have a love/hate relationship with my computer!

Anyway, I am working on earrings and some necklaces for now and have sold quite a few but hope to get them online and out there to sell more.  Check out my Etsy site online at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Inspirationsbycarri .  I would love the feedback!

Photo...

This is a picture of one of my earrings that are for sale.  I need a better camera so I can take better pictures, but they are made with Swarovski crystals and I have a blast working with them.  Very pretty and sparkly.  I love making jewelry and wish I had tons of money to make more.. LOL



That is it for this week.  I hope you are all having a blessed week, please know that you are loved!  If you have not been to The Homeschool Chick's website please check it out.  Click the graphic below that says "Homeschool Mother's Journal" and see what this blog party thing is all about!  God Bless!
