Homeschool Mother's Journal ~ July 17, 2011 (Summer Edition)

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…I had many awesome experiences. I spent the week at our Church Girl's Camp. I was one of the leaders for our ward. It  was so much fun. I got to know the girls better as well as do some things I had never done before and even face a fear! I shot a BB Gun and an arrow for the first time in my life! 2 out of 5 of my arrows hit the target and I made 3 out of 5 of my shots with the gun! I faced my fear of heights and went on the zip line as well!
In our homeschool this week…nothing because the teacher was absent! ;D
I am inspired by…the men and women who put together the Girl's Camp. It was a lot of hard work and preparation (especially since they had a location change only 5 weeks before camp due to fires in AZ). I am also inspired by the camp theme: Return to Virtue. As I look at young people today I am appalled at the lack of virtue, faith, modesty, respect, etc. that they have. I am also amazed by those young people who stand up against their peers and remain pure, modest and respectful when everyone else is not. It was inspiring to be around 130+ girls who are trying to be examples of virtue to the world!
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…after being gone for a week we will take it easy this week and not go to far. Daddy will take the kids to the summer movie and to the library but that is about it!
My favorite thing this week was…coming home to my kids after being away from them for 5 days!
I’m grateful for…flush toilets, daily hot showers, my computer, my hubby's cooking and my kids.
I’m praying for…my mom and my sister to have a safe drive from Pennsylvania to Arizona this week!
A photo, video, link, or quote to share…Proverbs 31:10-11 "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil."
Pin It!


  1. Stopping by from THMJ! Sounds like camp was a blast! I'm terrified of heights! I don't think I ever could do a zipline! LOL Good for you!

    Thanks for stopping by Jessy! Camp was a blast! I only worked up the courage
    for the zipline because the 12 year old girl that was scared to try it made
    a deal with me - if I went then she would go too! :)
