In my life this week…It’s been a good week. Nothing much out of the ordinary, school, work, cooking etc… I did get to go to a mom’s night out this week and we had our yearly family photos done on Saturday. I hope to share some of them soon. 🙂

In our homeschool this week…It went well, no struggles, good grades and no late night work. I like weeks like this.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…Make sure you grade everything right away, don’t let it pile up. Not only does it take way too long to grade if I let days go by, but when I grade things the same day I can see that the kids are understanding what they are being taught.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Mom’s night out, family photos, another doctor’s appointment and bible study. It was a full week of going different places.

My favorite thing this past week was…It was a toss up between bible study, my first one back, or mom’s night out. Both had much needed fellowship and encouragement.

My kiddos favorite thing this past week was…Sarah’s was getting the phone call letting her know when orientation is this week for her new job. Paulie’s was finishing school at a good time all week.

Things I’m working on…I’m on the last skein of yarn for the blanket I’m making. I think I’ll start working on some dish cloths and coasters soon. I’m trying so hard to find a skein of cotton yarn that is fall colors. I really want to make some fall coasters for our house. It’s the only season’s colors I don’t have yet.

I’m cooking…I’m still spending more time in the kitchen, which I’m really happy about. Some things I’ve made are soup and baked pasta.

I’m grateful for…My family. I loved the fun we had during our family photo shoot.

I’m praying for…Continuing to pray for Sarah.

Something I am ogling or have my eye on…Not much right now. No money to spend. 😉

A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…We have our friend take our family photos every year and it’s always so much fun. She always tries to get us being silly too. 😀

  1. Like the photo of you and Paul. Looked like you were having a good time. Looking forward to seeing the kids pictures. I have a couple of orange cotton yarn and a couple of orange,yellow,and I believe white varigated but not sure if its truly a fall look. I’ll keep looking. Talk soon. Love

  2. Love the photo! Seeing pictures of you makes me feel I really know you. Sometimes I wish my husband did not have a ‘no photos on the internet’ policy, but it is important to him.

    It’s good to hear that you are happy to be spending more time in the kitchen. I’m getting SO tired of being in the kitchen, but the freezers are full, so now I can give garden produce away with a clear conscience instead of freezing it myself. 🙂 (We won’t talk about canning!) And my mother in law has been helping, so I really have nothing to complain about.

    Miss 11 made the cornucopia, and we were all so proud of her!

    I hope this week is as good as the previous one
