The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…

I’ve felt a tiny bit overwhelmed with schooling, housework and life in general.   

In our homeschool this week…

I’ve felt like a failure. Chalk it up to one of those weeks. We returned from our Ohio Road Trip on Monday night. The rest of the week became a mess of much needed errands, vet visits, doctor appointments for physicals and tax time…need I say more? 

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

I am a Great Aunt! Yep, my niece had baby boy on Monday and we will be traveling to Knoxville this weekend to see him. I can’t wait!

My favorite thing this week was…

Returning from our road trip. There’s just no place like home.

What’s working/not working for us…

Lately I’ve felt that we’ve been on the road too much and I just really long for one complete day at home with no running around. That won’t happen for a bit longer, as the boys begin football next week but that will cut down on the out of the area travel for a bit.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have…

My mind is not working this week so can’t say I really have anything to share.

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

We’ve had our share of rain and stormy weather. This picture was taken minutes after the tornado warning expired, as the hail began to fall. These two thought they'd run outside and grab a few ice pellets which is what prompted a discussion on storm safety. Ugghh…I’m sure we’ve had this discussion before…


Until next week~ Happy Homeschoolin’ and Be Safe!


  1. Storms! We've only had one so far and I am ready for no more!

    I know how you feel after coming home from a trip. Overwhelmed is the perfect word - but just take it one day at a time.

    Love your blog....I need to look it over more carefully for tips on traveling. My son loves road trips.


  2. LOL! Sounds like my oldest who wishes for tornadoes. Ai yi yi!

  3. We call those errand days "Life Skills Day". :) It' works!

  4. I have had those weeks too. Congrats on the Grand Nephew!! Hang in there.

  5. Man, you are so not a failure! You are one of the most interesting, put-together, insightful women I know. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to meet you!

    Were you guys in town for the storms last night? Did they come your way? We had one of the worst tornadoes come through this way.

    So, how did the ice pellet catching go? :o)

  6. I knew there was a reason that I liked you, Tiffany! You are too sweet! :)

    We were in town for the tornadoes but thankfully they didn't come this way. We've had two tornadoes here in town since we've been here so I definitely take the sirens seriously. Glad you guys are safe.

    Josh and Chelsea actually lost interest in the ice pellets and really just enjoyed playing around in the rain-- until I ruined their fun. :)

  7. Yes, I agree~THERE'S NO PLACE like home! Glad you made it over this way and got back safe and sound...throw your feet up for some R N R and with a nice cup of whatever you like best! Have a restful nourishing week! HUGS!


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