In my life this week.…I have been learning a lot about myself – my motives, my weaknesses, my desires, my triggers. I have been learning I need to lean in more on prayer – specifics. I have had some yes answers to prayer, some no answers, some wait answers. I have been on a bit of a yo-yo ride with everything, but coming back to the most important thing being the walk.

In our homeschool this week…. It’s been a light week. We had our co-op wrap up for the term yesterday and a new one starting in April. While I love our co-op so much and am so blessed to be there, this time I was teaching one class on my own and helping with another a few weeks, and it was exhausting! So I am certainly glad for the break for a while :0)

There were lessons to complete and a presentation for The Boy to give on medieval children growing up and going to school. He did so well in his practicing, but I missed the actual presentation! Fortunately it is on video so we’ll get to see him. I am so proud of him – he went from being terrified of speaking in front of people last year, to this year the complete opposite, confidence and charisma exuding from him as he speaks.

We had some letter fun with Keekers – who knew hopping on letters and sounds was so much fun!

The kids built a Fisher Price village and played for a good amount of time!

We practiced lots of spelling and reading.

How about some pushups while you spell? :D

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers
I am inspired by….Job, and his faithfulness to God – we hear about the patience of Job….but really, it is his FAITH IN GOD that causes him to be delivered. I do not want to despair, but rather to continue to put my faith in the one who holds everything in his hands.

My favourite thing this week was….watching my children play together! They get into a lot of fights and disagreements…but they are quickly forgotten when the three of them come together and play.

They had snuggles…


….and bunny parties.
