Mother's Homeschool Journal #1- First Week

Well this was our first week of homeschool "officially". We are rejoining the Homeschool Mother's Journal back over with Sue at The Homeschool Chick.

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
In My Life This Week... I started reading the Bible in 90 days plan. I keep seeing this hopping around the blogosphere and just felt the draw to it. It is amazing how God speaks through the Word...

In Our Homeschool This Week... Our curriculum arrived!!! We started doing a few things here and there this week and trying to get on a regular schedule. We worked on many different items and I am so proud to see him developing. Our curriculum is so exciting. More so to me than him I think. We are using the Connections Academy through our public school. Since it is our first year I really felt that this would help me to know which direction to go and help me to figure out how to balance all this together. It is also a great curriculum that we received and I can't wait to dig in!

I am inspired by... All the homeschooling Mama's out there. This week through my Twitter connections I have gotten encouragement and tips that I never even imagined. I thank you all for the support that you give! You guys Rock!!

Places We're Going and People We're Seeing... This week we had to go to Boo Bear's eye doctors appointment. He has Duane's syndrome so we had to do a follow up. We also are going to hang out at the mall. ;)

My favorite thing this week... Has to be getting our curriculum in! :) 

I'm Reading... A couple different books. One for review that I will share later and I am also finishing up a book called Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich. Boo Bear and I are reading a few of The Magic Treehouse Series together too.

I'm Praying for... Our Homeschool Journey. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I feel this is the best place for him and I but I have also had panic this past weekend. Now that we have started it is easing up. God really spoke to me through my bible reading this week. When Sarah laughed because she was told she would bear a son God asked her Is anything impossible with Me? Wow... Talk about Him smacking me in the face. :) LOL I love it when He does that. :o)

  1. I know you will do well on this journey, Jennifer. Daddy and I are praying for you and for Jackson as you go forth with homeschooling. He is so smart and so is his mommy that I have no doubt you will both be successful. As Phillipians 4:13 tells us, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Love you!
