My Week: Not All That Ordinary

In my life this week…
I've been a wife and a mom. Nothing out of the ordinary for me. But  around the yard we've seen our little family of rabbits hopping about and our beautiful hummingbirds have come back for the season. I've seen the blue birds flying around the feeders.  Hopefully, our little finches will return soon. I did find a nest in my clothes pin bag on the clothes line. That little wren worked like a mad woman within 2 hours to build that nest. Unfortunately, I had to take all out.

In our homeschool this week…
It's finally over! Yippee Skippy! I'm not really all that excited, but we have finished up early and our summertime begins.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
Don't give up! It's easy for parents to look at what they are doing for their children's education and get a little discouraged when something has hit a snag. Every year, I encounter a snag whether it is with a curriculum, a moment of rebellion, or just an off day. Once I feel the discouragement start growing, I begin questioning myself and my ability to educate at home. My ability at home is no different from the ability to teach in a classroom setting for 12 years. The good thing about it now is I'm teaching my son the things he needs to become a gentleman, to love the Lord and put others first; all the academics will fall into place.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
I'm going to see my parents tomorrow. We'll be spending time with my Mom tomorrow, since we will be going to North Carolina on Sunday afternoon for a bullriding/steer wrestling competion.

Things I’m working on…
I'm sewing a tote bag. You can see it HERE (the one with the flowers). I found some really cute navy and pink flower fabric at Hancocks on Monday. I'll be using the bag when I shop at Aldi. I have so many of those cheap store bags that were given to me and I just don't like them. So I decided to make me one. Hopefully, I'll like so much that I'll have to make another.

I’m reading…
During my spare time, I've been readying Tracie Peterson's Chasing the Sun. Tracie is my all time favorite author. She has done another fantastic job on a book. I can't wait to write my review for it.

I’m grateful THANKFUL for…
I have so many things to be thankful for; my salvation, my family, a roof over my head, indoor plumbing, a running vehicle ~ with gasoline. I could go on, everywhere I look, I see things that I have, that I take for granted. I am so BLESSED!
