In my life this week:

Do you ever feel like life has got ahead of you? Well that is how I have felt this week. I had the feeling that I had my home had spiraled out of control into a disaster, I had no control over anything, and couldn’t get motivated to do much of anything. Although, come Thursday and Friday, God had given me grace and I am, again on the top of the mountain. I have taken control of the laundry, dishes, and our normal day to day cleaning. There is a lot to do daily and sometimes I get overwhelmed on where to begin. My husband works outside of the home, and I work inside of the home with my daycare.  My God is the only one who can help me overcome, rise me up, and lead me in the direction He wants me to go. So I lean and ask Him to take me! He is so faithful!

In our homeschool this week:

This week has been lead by an un-schooling approach. My kids have not done much “book” work, but have taken interest in learning what they want to learn and when they want to do it. Its actually been a lot of fun. They have learned a lot. We have had sporadic talks about Heaven, Hell, and Satan. We have drawn dinosaurs. Built with Legos. Played outside, made cakes with rocks and grass in the yard! Pulled weeds and picked our pumpkins that grew in our yard. Its has been a great week for us! I am so in love with how they love to learn and pick up on things so easily when just given the gift of time and the presence of someone who cares!

What’s working/not working for us…

I have enjoyed getting up a lot earlier than normal. My husband goes to work about 6:20 am. I have been getting up about the time he leaves and getting myself ready for the day before the kids get up. It works so much better, that way I don’t have to worry about breaking up anything between the children  while in the shower! HAHA!

Questions/thoughts I have…

Nothing this week.

My favorite thing this week:

Learning right along side my kids!

Something to share:

Isn’t this so true!


  1. LOL - like the calories definition! Getting up earlier works for me, too.

  2. Love the Calorie definition. Im sorry you had a bum start to your week. I think that is our body/minds way of telling us to take a breather! Isnt God so amazing though getting us back on track? So glad you can get up earlier and enjoy some time to get ready before the kids are up! I find myself doing that as well! :) Great start of the day usually means your day will continue to get better! :)

  3. Several times a year I make it a goal to get up before the kids, but it never works for many days! LOL It is a GREAT time for easing into the day though! So quiet!
