Homeschool Mother's Journal 2/27

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...

My oldest daughter turned 15 years-old.   My little girl is not so little anymore.   We had a wonderful time with many of her awesome friends. 

In our homeschool this week.
My youngest daughter that does really care to read lost herself in a book.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...
I drove my older children and some friends to Santa Barabra for a youth conference.   While they listened to some awesome speakers,  I visited the Santa Barabra mission with my two youngest.   It was a joy to spend some alone time with just them.   That doesn't happen very often.  

My favorite thing this week was...
Spending a quiet Sunday afternoon working my kids to help them set some goals.

What's working/not working for us...
Having hubby away so much for work.   Really not working for me.   

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...
After eleven years of homeschooling, I am a few years away from "retiring" from teaching.   I just feel like I'm really getting good at this.    Thinking about not having anyone to teach makes me a bit sad.   It's time to think about the next stage of my life.  

A photo, video, link, or quote to share...

That's some big hair!   The winner at my daughter's party in the Bumpit hair contest. 


  1. It is hard to believe that your kids are getting so big. The transition from having little kids to grown children sometimes can be sad, but also happy.
    It is great to see them grow into wonderful adults.

  2. Thanks for "following" me! =) I like the Homeschool Mother's Journal, I might have to join in this week. =)

  3. Hi the HAIR.My dd just had a sweet 16 with a tissue wrap dress fashion show =) Not as funny as the hair

  9. I love that you had a bumpit hair contest. Seems like an ideal application of the bumpit. Those always seemed a bit silly to me!
