A Bit of Summer Journaling

Yes, I should be packing boxes for our coming-sooner-than-I-realized move, but I thought it would be nice to take a mental health break and use this as an opportunity to re-gain perspective (which gets totally out of whack during stressful times like these). So today I'm linking up with Sue at The Homeschool Chick.

The Homeschool Mother's Journal
In my life this week… I am busy packing up our house for our move next weekend. I also sent off my daughter to church camp for the first time and sent my husband off on a missions trip to The Philippines. Yes, it's been a very busy week!

In our homeschool this week…
We are still on our summer break. It's been more of a break than I intended due to our move, but that's okay. I did get our curriculum for the Fall all lined out though~yea!

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… Well, Vince is off to The Philippines, The Princess is at Camp Dry Gulch USA and Mr. B and I are busy doing some fun stuff together here at home. *Stuff* like hanging out at Chuck E. Cheese and going to see Cars 2 (again:).

Things I’m working on… besides packing? Well, there are a few random projects I want to wrap up before our move.

I’m reading… A Charlotte Mason Companion and loving it! It's a very encouraging and inspiring book. Even though I'm not strictly a CM- schooler, I love her methods and so use some.

I’m cooking… Not much these days, mostly heating up casseroles my mom has graciously provided. Although I did whip these Reuben dogs up one night and we loved them!

I’m grateful for… Our friends and family who are helping us during this move. I am also so grateful for this door of ministry that we are stepping through

I’m praying for… Strength!!

A photo to share… This week we also celebrated my sisters birthday at our fave German restaurant. I love my sister!!

I have had weeks like that! In fact, this whole summer has been about like that!

I found you via The Homeschool Chick, noticed you're on the TOS crew. This is my first year!

I'm not following!
