~A Little of This and a Lot of That~

 In my life this week…
I lost a little chickie. My beautiful Fiona died on Sunday, she was my "silver" Araucana that I bought along with 2 others back at the end of March. I have no clue what happened, but I've been keeping an eye on all the others.

Let's talking about frogging. I really dislike it, especially when I have all the pieces of a sweater knitted and ready for the last piece to come together and the button band and main color panel will not cooperate. I put the sweater down for about 3 months and picked it up again this week. Let's just say, that I frogged all the pieces and now have two balls of yarn that are screaming to be knitted into a sweater. ~ Maybe I'll just look for another pattern...

I found out that the state of Georgia has a change in our homeschooling laws. Families will now be notifying the state and not their county school district with their letter of intent. According to local newspapers, the state has not even put into play how this is going to work when it starts July 1st. Hmmm...

In our homeschool this week...
I've been incorporating a lot of Netlfix into our school. Would you believe they have many documentaries about WWII? They do and we've been enjoying watching them. So far D-Day: The Total Story  is our favorite.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
Seriously, check out Netflix. You'll be surprised at all the documentaries and biographies they have listed. The good thing about it is ~ you don't have to leave your home to find educational films and they're available all the time.

What’s working and not working for us… 
Teaching Textbooks is a BIG plus for us. This is our second year using it and we love it! I have probably spent a total of two hours teaching (explaining) a concept to my son this entire school year. Yahoo! Math is a subject that is hard for me and trying to explain something pertaining to Math is not the easiest for me. (I sometimes wonderful if I helped or hurt students in Math while I taught school.) Hopefully I didn't do too much damage. The majority of them have either graduated or still attending college, so I guess that is a good sign.

Questions/thoughts I have…
I wonder what would happen in/to our country if all Christians joined together and really prayed for our nation. I don't mean the hit and miss prayer when it crosses our mind. I mean setting aside time every day to pray just for our nation and leaders.

Things I’m working on…
I just don't have the crafty mood right now. Hopefully once we are finished with our school year, I'll be able to focus more on my sewing and knitting.

I’m reading…
I'm trying to finish up Journey to the Well by Diana Wallis Taylor. It was a freebie a couple of weeks ago and it's a very good book. I'm also working on Tracie Peterson's Chasing the Sun for a book review.

I’m cooking…

I'll be cooking Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas for supper tonight.
