MHJ Week #2

The Homeschool Mother's Journal 


In my life this week… I have been busy. Getting ready for the official start of his virtual classes. Working alot this week too and planning a trip. Been fun though. 

In our homeschool this week… We learned about Daniel and the Lion's den. I took Live Lesson sessions with our virtual school on how to do it and we hung out at home.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… This week was quite slow on the going and seeing. ;) We are planning a trip to Mimi and Papa's house soon though so that is exciting.

My favorite thing this week was… Playing with my kiddo. We had a blast. We also put together a 100 piece puzzle !! :o) He is moving up from the kiddie puzzles. 

What’s working/not working for us… Routine, Routine, Routine...We all do so much better with our routine in place.

Questions/thoughts I have…  I am a little nervous this week because next week will be totally different. Not too much different but things start to take a little different form.

Things I’m working on… Working on losing my OCD'ness when it comes to schedules and routines. I am a planner and this is to my fault. I tend to need things all planned down to the detail and for it to go just that way. I am learning to deal with that and try to lose that issue. ;o)

I’m reading…  My bible and a couple books I got from the library this week. Boo Bear and I are reading The Magic Treehouse book Lions at Lunchtime.

I’m praying for… Strength, courage and the peace to relax and let it go.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…
Boo Bear is teaching me how to make ants on a log. ;o)


  1. I'm near Boca Grande- below Sarasota- love the header on your blog! :)
    good luck with the letting go! it's worth it but not easy- I've had to do the same and it was definately work for me too! have a wonderful week!

  2. Cute blog! Is this your first year homeschooling?

  3. I used to be SUCH the planner! You should see the notes, calendars, notebook pages from my first few years of homeschooling! LOL And now? After 8th years, I keep a calendar of activities and have plans "in my head", but other otherwise nothing much is written down! LOL We do have a routine though! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Hi! "Hopping" over from the HMJ. Nice to "meet" you! :-)

    I am a teacher by trade, and I still struggle with de-programming from that, lol! :-) It is such an inspiration to me to read comments where all of the moms are homeschooling while more relaxed and not so type-a with planning! That is definitely something I need to work on.


I love to hear from you!
