Week In Review, August 19th
This week has been a very busy week for our family, and was our last week before our busy fall schedule starts next week. I am looking forward to the changes that are coming, and know that we have a lot on our plate, but I feel that God is leading us. With him in the lead I know that there is nothing too big for us. I have been praying for the strength and energy it is going to take to get through it. I will be homeschooling three kids, with co-op on Mondays where I teach three classes. In addition to that I will be going to college full-time with fifteen credit hours scheduled, my classes will take up most of Tuesday and Thursday, with an accounting class on Wednesday nights. Add in a very busy Etsy business, as well as a husband with a chronic illness, and I have a lot on my plate. In addition to all of the above, we have weekly gymnastics/cheerleading for Sunshine, violin lessons for Sunshine and Little Man, and soccer for Little Man coming up. My head hurts just thinking about it!
Now, let’s talk about this last week. It was our first week of co-op and my kiddos loved it! I feel so blessed and led by God when it comes to this co-op. It is the co-ops first year in existence, and there are some very Godly women who are teaching the kids. I am soo excited by this opportunity, and am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for my family there.
We spent Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday getting into our typical homeschool schedule. Bubbles and Sunshine have been working on their schoolwork for quite a while, but it was Little Man’s first week doing his schoolwork. I have found it very motivating for him to offer him technology time in exchange for completing all of his work with no whining.
Bubbles and Sunshine started their small groups for middle schoolers (I have two middle school girls, ACK!) on Wednesday night. While they were in their small group The Mister, Little Man and I had a chance to spend some time on our own. We don’t always get that one on one time with Little Man so it was nice. Unfortunately starting this week I will be in class during this time and I won’t get to have that time with him but he will still get that one on one time with his daddy.
I have been wanting to have a yard sale for quite some time now and have been putting it off because let’s face it I just didn’t want to have to do the work. I finally bit the bullet, and we had a yard sale yesterday. We had a lot of luck, and got rid of quite a bit of “junk”, what was left over we took to the Goodwill. It was nice getting that extra money to put towards our upcoming vacation, while also getting rid of some of our clutter. I am just really, really glad it is over.
