Journaling {week four}…

IN MY LIFE THIS WEEK… 
Our son left, last week, to go back to Germany. He was home for a few weeks, on leave. Last week also ended an intense 8 week basketball season. This week feels like a giant breather. It was nice to take deep breaths and have no where to go. 
We also started a new co-op, which i LOVE already.
Desperately we struggled through the days, catching up on laundry and chores while trying to come up with a routine.  
IN OUR HOMESCHOOL THIS WEEK… 
slow and easy. 
trying to find a routine. 
started a new language arts program. Also working on a different angle of diagramming. I am hoping she loves it. Retaking the last unit of math we did, as she just didn’t seem to “get it.” 
PLACES WE’RE GOING, PEOPLE WE’RE SEEING… 
The rec center for our water fitness classes. Coffee/game date with friends this afternoon. My niece’s twelfth birthday party tomorrow. All good goings. :) 
MY FAVORITE THING THIS WEEK WAS… 
definitely our new coop. I enjoyed helping in the classes and seeing Gen connect and make new friends. It did my heart good. 
THINGS I AM WORKING ON…
being more patient. I need to be! 
I’M READING… 
The Baker’s Daughter by Sarah McCoy
SHE’S READING… 
Sizzle by Lee McClain
In Darkness by Nick Lake
I’M COOKING… 
some exciting curry dishes are in the works. that makes me smile. Nothing like a good curry!
I’M GRATEFUL FOR…
so much. My beautiful family. My little sister. My friends. That spring is around the corner… 
I’M PRAYING FOR… 
My friend’s beautiful little girl, who has a brain tumor. Specifically she is on my heart every second, of every day…

  1. How wonderful that your son got to home on leave! Where is he stationed in Germany? My husband was in Mannheim. Tell him that he has prayers from this soldier's wife in gratitude for his work/sacrifice! :-) A new coop sounds great. There is one that isn't so "schoolish," but it is about 45 minutes-hour away with no traffic and they start first thing in the morning. I guess I will keep praying that I can find another. :-) Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Many blessings, Lisa

  2. Glad you enjoy the new co-op! My children are so young that I never think of them going that far away, that must be hard, but he's doing a great thing!
