This week in my life…
It has been another difficult week. I don’t know when we will all get over this yucky cold stuff in our house. Plus add a teething 10 month old and you have cranky city. The girls had their first dance class for the year and I’m so glad that they have the same teacher. They loved her last year and had a great first night. I was a little worried; this is the first time they have ever been in separate classes. Audrey moved up into the 5-7 yr. old class and Alyssa stayed in the 3-4 yr. class. They did awesome and I think that they even like the independence they get from not being together.
Thursday we had a water leak on a main line by our house and they had to shut off water for part of the morning so the girls and I took the day off and were able to catch up with friends. I loved being able to chat with my fellow mom friends while the girls played. I was a recharging time for us all.
This week in our homeschool…
We managed to stay caught up even with all the sickness and water interruptions. Audrey had her first Tests today and got 100% on her math test and 80% on her phonics test!! Alyssa had a phonics quiz and got a 70%. She has a hard time concentrating so the lesson I learn today was to do her quiz first thing not after her other assignments. I guess it’s frustrating when you know they know the answers but just are not paying attention.
We started learning about money this week in math so for our art project this week we made paper mache piggy banks then painted them. They loved creating something from scratch and the texture of the paste was fun for them to play in!
Things I’m cooking this week…
Finally we have a break from the heat but it immediately turned cold so we had some good old potato corn chowder and chili this week. I was definitely soup weather.
I started reading 31 days to Build a Better Spouse. It is written by Ashley Pichea. Check it out at http://31daystopray.com
Along with this study I started a love note journal to my husband with a daily prayer and encouraging note for Him. I think it is important to lift up our spouses in prayer and let them know it along with offer encouragement and support as they lead our families.
