Homeschool Mother’s Journal # 12

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

I’ve been busy finishing up the last details for our special 9/11 service at church this Sunday. I facilitated my first planning meeting and was pleased not only with the turn out but the input. We are quickly getting a calendar for the next year filled with many things to enhance our church life. I just have a couple things to clarify then pass it on for the youth and children’s events to be put in.  

In our homeschool this week…

It was nice to get back at our routine again this week. We had a very productive week, and Selena never ends to amaze me as to how she will sit down and create or do her own work with no prompting from me. I always pray she never loses this desire to learn.

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

Selena starts AWANA this week. She is so excited to be a Cubbie. I know she will do very well, considering she has over half of the verses already memorized. It will be fun and good for her to be around other children her own age.

My favorite thing this week was…

Watching Selena prepare and carry out her own phonics lesson. Well, I must admit watching her decided it was time to wash her favorite stuffed animal, and dragging the laundry basket out to the laundry room, placing all the dirty laundry in the washer, and then insisting it was time for the detergent. Sorry that was where this little game ended.

I’m reading…

I am reading and working my way back through a bible study on Becoming A Woman of Excellence.

I’m grateful for…

My Church family and friends.

  1. We decided to try AWANA again this year too - we'll see.

  2. I think I might have read that book. I really enjoyed it.

  3. Great week. It's awesome that Selena is such an independent learner.

  4. Love hearing about Selena's desire to learn. I seem to have lost something somewhere, because there are times I really struggle with Tabitha.
    I wish we had AWANA around here. I looked into it and the closest church that has it is like a half an hour away on back roads. Not so good with winter around the corner.

  5. I love your visitors! How fun!

    And so wonderful that she will sit down and learn on her own!
