5 Days of Homeschool Life - Day 5

Day 1, 2, 3, and 4 in case you missed them!

Each week I try to wrap up our week by participating in The Homeschool Mother's Journal.  It's a fun way for me to journal our week and see other homeschoolers in action.

In my life this week… 
It started with a fun Mother's Day.  I received goodies picked out by my babies - a new apron, earrings, and a new coffee mug.  They know me so well!  The cards really made my day.

In our homeschool this week...
We started with a great week but ended up with me not feeling so well.  I'm still not up to full speed but I press on.  Here is a picture of the kids presenting their writing stories.  This week's theme was adventure fiction.  Pictures taken by the kids. :)

My favorite thing this week was…
Mother's Day was definitely my favorite thing of the week.

The weather was also gorgeous and the fresh air makes me feel better.  Can you see what is wrong with this picture?

Please excuse the toe, lol.

Although, it also shows the heart of this child towards his sister.  He is the big brother I always wanted!!  So sweet!!  In case you can't tell, he gave up his bike to let her ride and he rode the little pink princess bike.  :)

Things I’m working on…
Taking it easy really and trying to get back to full health.

Things I’m grateful for…
I'm grateful for a wonderful, God fearing and loving husband!

Scripture focus this week was 1 Corinthians 13!

  1. I've really enjoyed your 5 Days series! Thanks for sharing your week with us!

    I need to get my HMJ ready too - I usually get mine up sometime on Saturday if all goes well.

  2. Oh, no! I hope you're feeling better soon! Relaxing this weekend? (As much as a MOM can relax! LOL) I haven't read your series yet, but I'll do that after commenting. The 5 Days Of series has been really interesting! New to TOS, I decided not to participate this time around and find out what it's all about! Don't you love those homemade cards? Sweet!

  3. Thank you for joining us! Mine goes up on Saturday's sometimes too.

  4. Those cards make my day all over again. I have enjoyed the 5 days of... too! I'm going to try to relax but it's already shaping up to be a busy one. My hubby is off at least!!


Thanks for stopping by - let me know that you did!
