In my life this week…it has been crazy. I had a melt-down (you know the kind where you wonder if you are REALLY supposed to be homeschooling). After awhile my 5 year old came to me and said, "I didn't know you could do that (cry)." It made me wonder when the last time it was that my children saw me cry. I think it is a good thing because we were able to have a discussion about feelings and that EVERYONE has them (even moms) and that even adult's feelings can get hurt.
In our homeschool this week…again it has been rough. I have pretty much decided that, other than religion and a fun unit, we are going to take the rest of the month off. I think we need a bit of a break. I would take it off completely but if they don't have some sort of routine they get a little nuts! :)
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…follow your children's lead. If they are acting out there is a reason and the beauty of homeschooling is that you can take breaks when needed and adjust things to best suit your family's needs!
I am inspired by…all of you and your journals. I may not always comment but I am usually lurking nearby and it helps me know that you are all there and we are all here for each other.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…we are working on scraping some $$ together to take a little trip to Flagstaff. I hope we can pull it off...it would be nice to go to some cooler weather and to relax a little.
