Weekly Wrap-Up: A Peek at Our Uneventful Week


I can’t believe another week has flown by and it’s time for another Weekly Wrap-Up!  To be honest, the past two weeks have been somewhat of a blur. We’ve been on 3 field trips, a couple hikes and took a road trip to Ohio! Wow! Talk about busy. Not to mention I’m having one of those “…our homeschooling would be more productive if..” moments, which seem to be a resounding theme echoing through my days.

This week began a bit rough since I came home sick after our trip. I’m still not sure if it was a cold due to the weather change (it was sooo cold in Ohio!) or if it was allergies but my husband actually drove all the way home to Alabama while I slept comfortably in the passenger seat. That should have been a major tip off  that something wasn’t quite right because 1) I normally do ALL the driving because I’m a control freak like that and 2) I can NEVER sleep in the car…especially when my husband is driving, but that’s a story I’ll save for another day, or not.

My kids did all their independent school work and spent much of their free time reading.  We didn’t do any of our group studies and I bounced back and forth from whining because I couldn’t wipe my nose fast enough and attempting to return our home to order since we’d managed to bring some of our items out of storage.

I spent most of the week staring at the piles because I had no idea where to put everything. In a brilliant move the kids and I transported everything to the garage until I can find a place in our new home for all our old possessions. Aaahhh…much better.

By Thursday, I was once again beginning to feel like my old self. Just in time as I’d organized a field trip for our homeschool group. I joined 30 friends for two hours of laughter at the 4th Annual Athens Storytelling Festival, but I’ll share more on that later with a few pictures. Afterwards we visited with friends for a bit before heading home.

On Friday, I left the kids at home unsupervised (one of the many blessings of having older kids) while I met my husband for lunch where he dropped a bombshell on me. How would I like to move…again? Hmmm…more on those thoughts later. 

Thankfully, we were all able to relax as we enjoyed a 3.5 mile hike with friends in the afternoon and I’ll share more on that later as well because my daughter is holding all of our pictures hostage on her camera.

I guess all in all we had a good week. Nothing spectacular, but we’re still plugging along slow and steady.

If you’re nosy like me, you may enjoy reading more Weekly Wrap-ups which are hosted at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

Until next time…have a great week!      


  1. Well I'm glad you're feeling better. And don't you just love how hubbies can drop bombs like that? Our best one was, "How'd you like to move to Guam for 3 years?"

  2. Oh, no, not a move? Your life sounds like mine - almost too busy to homeschool. Do you feel like the kids lose out on book time, or do you feel like they have had a much more well rounded education than most children? I'm conflicted about our lifestyle right now. I love it, but I'm a bit afraid that Crumpet is stressed by all the busy-ness, and not getting any real book study in lately. (Okay, I know he's only 4, so it's no big deal, but that's why I want to sort things out now...) Glad you are feeling better. Good luck.

  3. Oh no, moving again? Is it Georgia, Is it Georgia!!! You guys lead a busy life. Looking forward to more info on the possible move.


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
