Homeschool Mother's Journal April 3, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week... I've been trying to figure out balance in my life.   How do I meet everyone's acedemic, social, spritiual needs and find time to do the same for me!   Oh and I'd like to find some time to have a clean house while I'm at it.  

I have a neighbor in my life who I help out by gardening.   I was able to get in her yard and weed and get a little garden going.   It felt really good and this upcoming week I hope to get in my garden and get started by weeding and putting together some new garden beds. 

In our homeschool this week...Again, balance, balance, balance.  Also, I need to get to bed earlier so I can get up earlier so I can get started earlier so we can get more done!  

Places we're going and people we're seeing...I've been trying to get our family together for a trip away--anywhere---but with everyone's crazy schedule its been hard.   So, we are committeed to heading out of town this coming weekend.   The kids are going to decide on where and what we're doing.

  1. Balance is so important and so difficult! I've always loved gardening, but I'm considering giving it up this year since we're actually going on holidays and since I have some other things on the go.

    It is so hard to make the decisions! Mind you, the children are insisting on the garden, so I'll have to cut something else out.

    I hope you find the balance solution...and if you do, be sure to post about it!

  2. I think a clean house would be wonderful here, too. Love your history resources along the side bars.

    Thanks for visiting me at A Season for All Things. I noticed you included my previous blog (eclectic homeschool 4 life) in your blog list. I no longer update this since I moved everything over to A Season for All Things.

  3. I can totally relate to the balance thing. More than ever I feel like the littlest things throw me completely for a loop! Or just when Life begins to feel manageable...something new will pop up and it all goes to pot. Sigh. What's a girl to do?

    Also...I'm 100% on board with the lazy beach days idea :)
