Homeschool Mother's Journal 7/25-7/29

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
The AC went out in my car again which means we found ways to stay home. It's hot out there! Thankfully the Girl Scout meeting for this week was cancelled. We did go early one morning, (early being about 9) to get milk at the farm which is only 7 miles from us now.  Other than that we have worked things so that if I need something Nathan has taken care of it on his way home. One day he delivered cake pops for me on his lunch break. He rocks! He will be working on the AC this weekend and hopefully he can fix it.




In our homeschool this week…
We are still on break so nothing official yet. I have been working on some of the school plans for the next school year. I need to print out my new planner still and start filling it in. Kaden did find a set of alphabet cards and has been playing with those on his own, either telling me what the letters are or asking me what they are. He also has been counting on his own sometimes. He counted to 13 yesterday! Since I haven't done much with him I think that is amazing!


My favorite thing this week was…
I have had some orders come in this week when last week I was feeling down about it. Sometimes I work at getting my business out there and nothing happens and I think that maybe I need to quit and focus on the kids only. God gave me this business though and the talent to do it and He seems to always come through with something that lets me know I am doing what I need to be doing. I am waiting to hear back from a catering company that wants a new baker. If I get the gig I will be kept busy. I know that with God's help I can keep up with both the business and homeschooling.


I’m cooking…
I have been doing a lot of baking to help save money. So lots of bread and things. We are also now stocked up on the grass fed, organic beef and pork so I have been looking for different recipes sometimes.



I’m grateful for…
My husband for being so helpful this week. My brother and his family because now I have a babysitter when I need one occasionally and they don't live far from us.



I’m praying for…
My brother and his job search.

Sorry about your AC! We've had some brutal hot weather here and I'm so thankful that everything is working well in van.
Your site is cute! I just came over from the HMJ link-up.

Sorry about the ac..that stinks! I know.. my compressor went out in my van. UGH!

I love baking and just making things from scratch in general.

Stopping by from the HMJ.

No A/C is not good. We just had ours replaced in our van in the spring.

Cake pops sound YUM! :-)
