Journal {Week 5}…


IN MY LIFE THIS WEEK… 
We had the unfortunate opportunity of coming home Monday, after coop, to a letter from the courts. Without divulging a lot of detail, our youngest’s (12) adoption has been in hiatus for years. We’d resolved, emotionally, that it may never happen due to a technicality. As it turns out, we have a VERY small amount of time to “figure it out” (attorney and thousands of dollars more, that we don’t have, after the tens of thousands already spent) or lose her. 
So like repossessing a child, but different. 
Not really. That’s me being completely snarky. 
The things people (our “support” system) have said this week, along with the about 7 people who have genuinely given a crap, have made me feel really defeated. 
So, all in all, the week pretty much sucked. 
IN OUR HOMESCHOOL THIS WEEK… 
That part was ok. Lots of books. 
For literature we read a Newberry winner called A Gathering of Days. I LOVE our literature curriculum. 
In Social Studies we did indepth studies on Presidents Taft, Roosevelt, Hoover, Coolidge and McKinnley. We should be wrapping up our studies on the former US presidents (all of them) the end of this month. 
In Science we learned about the digestion system. 
In Gen’s baking class she and her partner made mini chocolate lava cakes and they were divine! 
PLACES WE’RE GOING, PEOPLE WE’RE SEEING… 
A little glad to say that this weekend we aren’t doing much of either of those things.  Maybe try to go to our water class on Saturday morning, and then do some projects at home. 
MY FAVORITE THING THIS WEEK WAS… 
the cute things coming in the mail from my BFF (she lives in WV) in honor of March being my birth month. It’s very thoughtful… 
THINGS I AM WORKING ON…
Not falling apart emotionally, every twelve seconds mostly. 
I’M READING… 
NADA, at the moment. Managed to somehow mess up my kindle yesterday (of course) and it would probably be tough to focus anyway. 
SHE’S READING… 
EVERYTHING!!! Classic Nancy Drew books… 
I’M COOKING… 
i don’t even know. I need the ready made meal plan, complete with the ready made shopping and the ready made maid. 
Too much to ask? 
probably comfort foods… 
I’M GRATEFUL FOR…
MY KIDS!!!! hands down… Even if gen is the only one home. PRAYING it stays that way… 
I’M PRAYING FOR… 
My life…

  1. This is one of those times you need God to step in and pour out His favor and grace on you. Cling to what you know the Lord has already said. SHE is your daughter. He will make it happen. I am believing this is going to work out and that you are going to have something amazing to share about what God has done.
