Welcome Friday! I've missed you!
In My life this week...I celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary to the most wonderful husband! We went to Dairy Queen for the first time when I was just 14 and he was 15!
In Our Homeschool this week...We are continuing with notebooking and it is going super! The kids look forward to picking out what's most important in their reading and figuring out a way to display it. Today my daughter is making a venn diagram of the similarities and differences between Jamestown and the Plymouth colonies!
Places we're going and people we're seeing...Tonight is date night for me and the guy in the pic above! Our anniversary was Wednesday but he had to work late and we had youth group at church that night.
You have got to love all the "owl" glasses! My flower girls and Ring Bearer are now 26!
We also had a visit this past week from some of our "Florida Family." Here's a pic of my daughter and I with our Florida auntie and cousin!
What's Working for us...school delays! :O) We have had such unusual late events lately we rarely start school by our projected time of 8:30 a.m.! One day we even had a house cleaning delay! I can handle a lot of things but THAT much clutter was more than I could bear!
My Favorite thing this week was...listening to one of my sons pray. He was bold and confident and was even praying i front of a crowd!
Thoughts I have...I wrote a post last night after considering some deep thoughts about my son with Asperger's. It's called The Paradox. Check it out!
I'm Grateful for...the flexibility homeschooling offers our schedule! My husband is off the next 2 weeks and we will have to be creative to keep the kids engaged in their studies! I'm looking forward to having "The Principal" home though!
I'm Praying for...a friend of ours who is having surgery this morning...right now!
Time as a family next week and the following when we are going on vacation!
A Pic and link to leave you with...
We are currently studying the colonial period of american history and 2 of my kiddos read about the pilgrims this past week. If you have not seen the movie "Monumental" you NEED to, especially if it fits your history lessons! (I tried to put the actual video here, but can't figure out how!! Help!) Click the pic if you want to be taken to the trailer!
Blessings to you and your families this week!
