The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...

I already shared a tiny glimpse of what my life has been like this week. You can read about it here if you’re really interested.

In our homeschool this week...

We’ve been moving along. Not too exciting but not everyday can be, now can it?

We did go on a field trip to our local homeless shelter for a tour and to serve lunch and work in the kitchen. It’s always a great experience for us and this time was no different. Our local shelter has a live-in program that is pretty neat. As a faith based shelter they receive no federal, state or local money for the government and yet manage to serve over 200,000 meals a year, clothe and provide housing for their residents.

It’s important to me that my kids learn to serve and realize that homelessness is something that can happen to anyone.

Places we're going and people we're seeing...

We visited one of the many local homeless shelters this week for a tour of the facility and to serve lunch and work in the kitchen. We learned discovered a few things that I’ve   

My favorite thing this week was...

Wrapping up a huge project that I’ve been working on that wasn’t nearly as painful as it started out to be.

What's working/not working for us...

Netflix and Zeezok are working for us this week, but I’ll have more to say about that later. 

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...

Do you ever just want to go back and start all over? My kids are growing up. They are all going to their first prom tomorrow and I can’t help but think that one day soon my little birds are going to fly from the nest. If only the time hadn’t passed so quickly…

A photo, video, link, or quote to share...

After this weekend I’m anticipating a ton of pictures to scrapbook so I’m thinking it’s time to learn how to digi-scrap. I ran into this great site Working with Digital Quick Pages that will help me get started, so if you’re in the same predicament as me you may want to take  a look too. 


  1. We'll be heading to a shelter for women and children here soon, to prepare and serve dinner; we can't wait. Congrats on finishing up your project! It must be both sad and exciting for you that they're heading to prom. We realized the other day that we've only got Babydoll for about ten more years. Made me sad. :( Have a great weekend!

  2. I am a huge digiscrapper. Ask any questions you want. I have been digiscrapping since 2005 and love it. I have a few layouts on my blog right now. I have started scrapping for Robin Sampson and already do layouts for Misty Cato another designer.

  3. One of my favorite places for creating digital scrapbooks is Picaboo. They always have great deals and I love the stickers and stuff that they have!

  4. Thanks for the tip! I'll give Picaboo a looksie. :)

  5. Ask any questions? you really know what you're saying? lol Thanks, Vickie- I'll take you up on that offer! :)

  6. Oh Tiffany, at this point I don't even want to think of how much longer I 'have' the kids.

    I'm reminded everyday of how independent they've become- which is what we've raised them for, just a bit sad to realize the day for them to spread their wings is a bit sooner rather than later. :( Still, it is exciting to see them grow into the young men and women they will one day become.

    They really loved the prom and are looking forward to going next year as well.


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