First to mention is I had like 35 windows open in my browser of articles to read, homeschool stuff to print, my email, facebook, shopping for kids clothes, and I am trying hard right this moment to get all of that all closed so I can actually LOG OFF my login tonight. It needs a refresher.
Tomorrow morning is Bible Study, the breakfast bake is in the fridge ready to be put in the oven in the morning. The kitchen floor is freshly swept and mopped. I have stacks all over the school room as usual, but I am working on dwindling that down. I haven’t even read through my homework for bible study this week, and that is just making me sad. I actually did the homework a year ago, but I am refreshing myself, I never got to finish this study. We are doing “Breaking Free” by Beth Moore, the updated version.
Last weekend, I got to go to a Beth Moore event. It was a great 24 hours away, but it was only 24 hours. Today I am feeling that I really need a break. My darling husband let me do some cleaning while he watched the kids ride their bikes tonight. They needed it and so did I. It was a short break, but it was so needed after a long day of schooling.
I won a contest recently at Ladybug’s Abode and she sent me a beautiful handcrafted cup and saucer. I love it, it is now displayed in my dining room. Do I hear thunder? I think I hear thunder. I hope so anyway, otherwise there may be little feet up again and it took them too long to settle tonight and I am in need of this moment. lol. I have no idea how to post a picture of the saucer, so I am going to send you a link to her post about the cup and saucer. http://ladybugsabode.blogspot.com/2011/07/polish-pottery-giveaway.html
I think I may need to find another math for my oldest. She is so struggling with Saxon. It is so labor intensive and not much fun. I heard about something called Life of Fred, I need to check it out so I can decide.
My kids are LOVING Expedition Earth from http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com! We are in China this week and they are having a blast. I don’t have time to build the cool Great Wall of China she had built with her kids, but we did make some easy paper lanterns. It’s all good, my kids are happy and I am happy as well.
And that is the end of my update….. Lord, give me strength every day, that’s my prayer right now.
