Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 12/17


In my life this week…It’s been a good, but busy week.  We have finished all our Christmas shopping, and we have all our gifts wrapped and under the tree.  I have mailed our Christmas cards and gifts that we gave to family.  I feel like I can finally relax the rest of the month.  🙂  We’ve been trying to watch some Christmas movies, but with two people having retail schedules, it’s not always that easy to do.  lol  Hopefully we’ll get some more in before Christmas day.  😀

In our homeschool this week…Tuesday will be our last day of school for the year.  Since we do 4 day school weeks we decided to break things up a bit.  We are doing two days this week, then two days after the first of the year, probably the 3rd and 4th.  We are so blessed that we are homeschoolers and have this choice.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…I need to run to the library and go grocery shopping this week.  Other than that, not much running around, for which I am so thankful.

My favorite thing this past week was…We went to our friends annual Christmas party, which we absolutely love.  We look forward to this event every year, and Paul even asks for the day off, it’s that huge.  It was so much fun.  I love seeing all my friends and enjoying the Christmas season.  Though we are realizing we need to start taking the next day off too.  We end up staying so long and late, we are always dragging the next day.  But it’s so worth it.  😀

Things I’m working on…I’m working on crocheting my first set of cotton, fingerless gloves for Sarah and I have to say they are turning out quite well.  They are so quick and easy, I think I’ll be making a pair for myself soon.  😉

I’m cooking…I’m not in the kitchen as much as I should be, but that will change this week.  First, Paul and I are going grocery shopping this week, so once we have food in the house it will make cooking so much easier.  😉  Plus Sarah and I are baking Christmas cookies on Thursday.  I’m really looking forward to that.

I’m grateful for…The company I work for, The OldSchoolhouse Magazine.  The people I work for and with are such a blessing, and I’m so thankful for the Lord giving me a job that is with a Christian company and is perfect for me.  It’s truly a blessing.

I’m praying for…For friends marriages, health and so much more.

  1. We have yet to watch a Christmas movie. I think we may have a marathon on Christmas day. I need to get food, too. We’ve been so busy keeping on our regular tasks that our Christmas ones are behind! Enjoy the season, my friend!

  2. Sounds like things are coming together beautifully for Christmas. Cotton fingerless gloves? Sounds interesting. Where did you get the pattern for that. Please send it to me if you can. I’ve been wanting to make them too but didn’t find a pattern easy enough. Glad your trying it too. I really want this coming year for me to exercise more, eat less and maybe more gluten free. I need easy crock pot recipes to work back into any kind of cooking. Dad wants to get his weight down too. I am still behind on things, but did get the Christmas cards out. The calendars will be late. Love

  3. Wow! It must be so nice to be so prepared. We have finally recovered from the virus we had, playing a little catch up with school, and trying to keep up with the Season.

    Sweet blessings!

  4. Hi, JoAnn!

    Love your new website! I’m just ‘resurfacing’ from the past few months getting moved and starting to settle into our new home–and now it’s Christmas! Sounds like you have all your holiday ducks in a row and are enjoying it peacefully. Good for you! I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my blog world here once again after things settle down.

    Blessings on your holiday and the coming new year!

  5. Sounds like a great week! I like your relaxed holiday plans.

    Ours days are quite relaxed too, partly because of the weather! So many things have been cancelled over the last month, and yesterday our friends couldn’t make it to dinner because of the snow. So we ate their share of the gf carrot cake Miss 16 had made, and watched movies.

  6. Sounds like a great week. We’ve had a busier week this week, but hoping things settle down for next week.

    The weather has been horrible. And we are home from church today because of freezing rain.

    May you have a blessed Christmas season.
