Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 2/3


In my life this week…Paulie recovered well from his oral surgery last week. His cheek turned a bit yellow and bruised but the swelling went down and he’s eating normally now. I’m so thankful for that. Other than that, it’s been a pretty normal week. Kids did school lessons, Paul and I worked, not too much else to report. 😉

In our homeschool this week…The only funny or weird thing was that I started to look at curriculum, because we always buy our curriculum with our tax return. But this year, I won’t be buying for Sarah, just Paulie! And I really don’t know how much I’ll be buying for Paulie, since some of what he will use is what Sarah used. It is definitely a strange time in our homeschooling life.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…I have bible study this week, church, library all the normal things. Not too much out of the ordinary planned so far.

My favorite thing this past week was…Seeing Paulie heal so well from his surgery and spending the Super Bowl with friends.

Things I’m working on…I’ve been pretty busy with work this week, so I haven’t been able to crochet as much as I wanted, but I did get to start a new pair of long, fingerless gloves for Sarah. It’s a fun color she picked. They should turn out well.

I’m cooking…Not much. Pasta bake and Swedish meatballs are about it.

I’m grateful for…Such a great oral surgeon that did such a great job with Paulie.

  1. So glad Paulie is on the mend. 🙂 I, too, have found it strange to purchase less and less curriculum as the boys moved on. It is truly a transition period, for them and for you! Have a blessed week!

  2. I know that feeling! When you are down to the last child ( for homeschooling.) It is a bitter sweet moment. I have been recounting moments with my youngest. Looking at photos of projects ect.
    You know since I started trying to knit again my shoulder has hurt…did not think about it being knitting until you commented. I so prefer crochet over knitting. Maybe this is a good excuse to skip knitting!

    1. Tina,

      I injured my shoulder years ago, and certain activities can hurt my shoulder, neck and give me a bad headache, and knitting is one of them. It’s the way I move my right shoulder to throw the yarn. I’ve tried learning the Continental Knitting, there is practically no arm movement, but I just can’t figure it all out, even with youtube videos. But I truly enjoy crocheting more anyway, so I’m glad to stick with that. 🙂

  3. I am so glad to read that your son has been healing well.

    The homeschooling journey is just that. . . always a journey of different paths. I know it’s been tough to not school my older girls, so I can imagine the bittersweet feelings that encompass this season.
