Wrap-Up for Several Weeks

Things have been wild and crazy here at the Farmwood Academy. (yes, our homeschool has a name) We have been quite busy with a variety of things going on and some have been fun while others, not so much. Here's a look at some of the things we've been into these past few weeks.

Air Show Fun
A couple weeks ago we went to visit my brother and got to see the Thunderbirds in their air show. It was a lovely visit and a great time, although it was short.

We were able to see a ton of neat airplanes including C-30's, some old WW II planes and a wonderful show reenacting Pearl Harbor.

We've been moving right along with our school stuff. We are hoping to finish up by the end of May since Boo Bear has two weeks of theater camp in June and that will take us down for several days. I have always just tried working around the theater camp but this year our goal is to be done. Then maybe start our new school year back in July.

Since the school year is coming to a close, it also means that I'm looking for curriculum for next year. I can't believe my kiddo is about to be a middle schooler. Where does the time go?? I have our math for the next couple of years chosen but we are going to be changing up science this year for sure. I'm also looking for a good interesting history program as well, so if you have any ideas please share them.

Fun Times
We've been doing some fun things here lately as the weather, and time, permits. We got to do our favorite springtime activity of picking blueberries. An added bonus was Mimi and Papa got to go this year with us.

We also went bowling with Daddy, colored and hunted eggs, and had a beautiful Easter with Grandpa.

Trim Mama
So if you've read any of the other posts on here, you know I'm using Trim Healthy Mama. I have a couple of health issues that make it very difficult for weight to come off so it seems impossible sometimes. I have been very frustrated lately because my scale is a big meanie head. It is stuck in a certain spot and it refused to move.

When that happens, I tend to get very downhearted. I eat very well, I mean tasty food. But when you work hard and it doesn't seem to make the scale move, it gets hard to fight through. BUT I have to say that I had an NSV (non-scale victory) this weekend that just made it all worth it. Yes, I have things such as my A1C coming down and feeling better, but we all know we want the scale to show it too. So, my resolution is I'm dropping the scale. It's nothing but a discourager and I don't need that sabotage in my life. :) Anybody with me??

Here's what I'm going to use. I'm going to use photos like this as my inspiration and encouragement.

So, are you trying to make healthy changes in life and have been discouraged? I encourage you to drop the scale and use your NSV's.

So that's what's going on around here. Just keeping on keeping on basically. I hope you had a great week and make sure you stop by Kris's place and see how other homeschool weeks went.

Have a great weekend ahead and see you around!!
