In my life this week:

Life was a little busy this week! Its been very hot this week and we have spent a lot of our time inside!

In our homeschool this week:

We did not really do much of anything this week outside of reading, reading, reading and some more reading! I have put my curriculum list all together and am working on getting our workboxes in working order. I am still working on organizing some of our school materials as well…does this ever end? I’m beginning to think it doesn’t!

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

I have an in-home daycare and we had a new little one start this week! I am definitely getting my baby fix! He’s six months old, loves to be cuddled, carried in the baby sling, and absolutely loves my kiddos!

My favorite thing this week:

This is so sad…I am so excited that God provided time for me to clean the floors, organize and straighten up our house and give me time to update my blog! These are all areas where I let my “stress” be relieved!

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have:

Last week I talked about Natalie and her reluctance to read. I have to say that this week alone she has made great strides. We have started over in our reading. I began working with her at the very beginning. We started with Sonlight’s 1st grade reading program. She is reading the very first I Can Read It Book. She is doing very well. I also assured her that no matter how great of a reader she becomes, I will always read to her for as long as she allows me too! I am so proud of her, she is working so hard at this and is starting to see the fruits of her labor!

I am currently reading:

Bringing Up Girls. By Dr. James Dobson. My final book from my summer reading list.

It seems that I am taking a long time to read this book, but actually I can only read a little at a time then let the book sit a couple of days and come back to it. I am amazed at the information in it, that it takes a few days of prayer and thought to fully comprehend all of it!

Something to share:

My husband and I are going on a date tonight! I’ll update you all next week!
