Homeschool Mother's Journal, May 4th

In my life this week…busy, busy with school, friends, fishing, and enjoying the weather! 

In our homeschool this week…We finished our salt dough map of the U.S. and worked hard on sight words! My teen daughter has one more week of Driver's Ed! 

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…breathe...

My favorite thing this week was…planting come pansies in containers for May Day!

My kiddos favorite thing this week was…for some of them it was fishing, for others it was visiting friends, maybe for others it was planting flowers. :)

Things I’m working on…planning...craft projects, homeschool studies, field trips...

I’m grateful for…God allowing us to adopt and providing for every step of the journey, my church, my friends, my pup, spring weather, our cozy house, God's grace on hard days. 

I’m praying for…my kids, my marriage, opportunities to share the hope I have in Jesus, a good book to read, my friends, my church, my pastor and his family, my family.

I rewarded my kids this week by…Last night we planned a fun night of making stepping stones. Unfortunately we took on too many at once (all 6 kids at once) and it was our first time and it failed. But, I think we had fun and we'll try again another day!! I found a good "how to" video on YouTube!

Something I am ogling or have my eye on…We have our eyes open for bicycles for our younger 4 kids. It was the one thing they dreamed of having when coming home!

A photo to share: All four of my younger children have now officially read their first book in English!!
