I have loved visiting fellow homeschooling mom's blogs and seeing a wonderful weekly "journal" of sorts where they share what's going on in their life...I am always interested in something that gets the juices flowing and I love the way it's done almost like a diary. My plan is to keep this as my Tuesday post each week...we'll see how it goes...but I do have one to kick it off!
In my life this week…things are pretty hectic. We are kicking off our adventure in homeschooling *officially* next Monday. So this week is full of lesson planning and keeping my printer running! Did I mention I am also trying to wean Baby Britches from his nighttime feeding? He's going to be 1 on Friday (sob!) and still wakes me up at LEAST once to nurse. Leaving me so worn out and exhausted in the morning I can't hardly move. Not a good combination with homeschooling!
I am inspired by…all you homeschooling moms out there who teach more than one grade at a time AND have babies under feet! How do you do it??
Questions/thoughts I have…oh I think the main thing right now is just anxiety about homeschooling. Can I TRULY do it? Will I do a good job? Am I crazy?
I’m reading…For the Children's Sake--a book included in the My Father's World curriculum. It's very good and I'm having to make notes of things I need to work on when dealing with my children when it comes to my attitude.
I’m cooking…well I made a big batch of spaghetti for lunch and froze half of it. We are eating a lot of pasta since I need to give the baby fingerfoods!
I’m grateful for…my husband. He is amazing and so supportive of everything I do. He's going to be the reason that homeschooling succeeds because he'll be the one comforting me on the days I just want to cry and give up!
I’m praying for…wisdom and guidance. As well as nights of blessed sleep!
