Linky Parties

It seems life is so crazy right now, not only the busy crazy but emotional crazy and I don't handle lots of strong emotions too well. ALL that to say......I am trying to link to some parties to help me get "my groove on" with this. I actually have posts come to mind all the time, but SOMETIMES they sound more like horror movies and heresy...and really who want to read about that on a can get that on the 5:00 news.

In my life this week...dinner for a friend who just moved to a new house,  errands and a sushi date night with my husband,  AO family we just met coming over to visit,  one child going on a weekend camping trip with NO RUNNING WATER OR TOILETS.   Needless to say, I will not be going with her, 

In our homeschool this week...reading good books,  planning my 9th graders last term for the year,  (love looking at all the books available.  Who would ever WANT to read a textbook when you can read other things that give better info?)  Going to the Heifer project and watching baby lambs being born f10 FEET AWAY.  God is truly a God of miracles,  daily. 

Places we're going and people we're seeing...enough said above about camping and Heifer Ranch.  I really like that we are home all weekend.  Good for my soul.

My favorite thing this week was...feeling better than last week,  making cookies with my little girl,  completely cleaning the schoolroom,  and watching my garden grow and grow.

What's working/not working for us...math is working,  going to bed at a decent hour,  reading a couple of good books aloud  (Children of the New Forest  and Mary Emma and Company) , both books about hard working families who live and love together, 

Not working,  still slow in my recovery from the flu.  I hate how it puts me at a slower pace of life,  but I will TRY to reap benefits.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...I am planning/scheduling my 9th graders last term.  Tweaking and pulling books of the shelf.  She wants a little independence as far as choosing when to read each book each week.  I want her to enjoy what she is learning, but not at the expense of NOT LEARNING!!

A photo, video, link, or quote to link is my daughter's blog. She is busy making and selling headbands that are beautiful.  Contact her if you would like to purchase one. 

thanks for reading,
