Marvelous Monday Morning

I have decided to start my Monday with a post to the Homeschool Journal.  Please click The Homeschool Chick on my sidebar to read other homeschool journal posts.

In my life this week…  We are going to stick with a Mon, Wed, and Fri school schedule.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are for field trips, American Heritage Girls, Gym Days, and Art Days.  I have lost my routine in moving and am ready to get it back.  I want to get my chore routine back too.

In our homeschool this week…  We are going to start Thanksgiving themed items.  We are reading Grimm Fairy Tales and Bri really likes them.  She is going to get her Pizza Hut Book It Pizza today.  So she is really wanting lunch.  LOL

What’s working/not working for us…  I have adopted Friday afternoon as library day.  Bri really likes going and it is a great end of the week treat for us both.

Things I’m working on…  I am trying to focus on one day at a time.  I am forever thinking about what is coming up and I am missing the here and now.  It makes me impatient and rushed.

I’m reading…  Face Upon An Herbal by Kathy Lynn Emerson.     It is a great mystery series.  It is during the reign of Elizabeth I.  I don't care for modern mysterys.  
I’m cooking…  There is a nice roast in the crock pot.

I’m grateful for…  our frugality that let me get my laptop, printer, and router.   
I’m praying for…  all our troops coming home safe.
A photo, video, link, or quote to share… 

Have a Happy Halloween!!

Finally back!

I finally got internet at the apartment!!!

Our school year got off to a great start and we found a very good homeschool group to join.  Bri has joined American Heritage Girls also.

She spent two hours at an assisted living home.  She played Uno and Bingo with the residents.  She really enjoyed herself.  This was her first time going to a nursing home.  They are planning a trip there once a month.  I have seen where they are planning to have the girls do Gingerbread houses with the residents the next time.  That will be really fun.

School work is coming along.  We have added going to the library once a week also.

I hope to get my camera's software on this laptop and get some new pictures soon.

So glad to be back!!

Have a wonderful day!
