Week 4 Wrap Up

In my life this week… 

We began our Daniel Fast on Sunday.  The youth of our church are doing it so we joined in to support them.  Only Jonathan and myself are left for the Daniel fast. Stephen has gone to no sweets and Shawn has stopped altogether.  Sarah wasn't doing it.  

It's been a good week, we've had some ups and downs and our systems are definitely cleaned out, lol.  

In our homeschool this week… 

Week 4 and we are doing well, finding our groove still.  Next week our CC community starts back so we will have one less day at home and will have to adjust our schedules for that.  Since MFW usually has a light 5th day, it is not too hard to combine days if we need to. One more week before we break!

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Shawn was home during our school time this week so he got to help out with the science experiment.  Love when the principal can take over.  :)

What’s working/not working for us… 

So far everything is really going smoothly, thank you Lord!  Next week's new things will be logic for Jonathan and CC day for Stephen and Sarah.

I’m reading… 

  • 1 Peter 1 
  • The Tanglewood's Secret is our Read Aloud book and we love it!
  • We started Beth Moore's study of Esther this week at church too.  I love her studies!

I’m cooking… 

On the Daniel Fast, I have been on a search for recipes.  This broccoli is delish!
