Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ September 9, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal 

In my life this week…Rain, rain and more rain.  But thankfully we haven’t experienced any flooding in our neighborhood.  In our case the rain has been simply a nuisance…keeping us inside a lot more…but we have been praying for the many people whose lives have been greatly affected by flooding from this seemingly unending rain.

In our homeschool this week…We have successfully completed three weeks of our new curriculum, Heart of Dakota’s Bigger Hearts for His Glory.  And in am still in love with it! 

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Before all of the rain started up, we were able to spend Labor Day afternoon with our church family at a nearby park…that boasts a big wooden slide.  We had a wonderful time eating and sliding with our friends. 

The rain began that afternoon and has not let up since…so the rest of the week has been spent mostly inside…getting schoolwork done Smile.

My favorite thing this week was…Watching all of the sliding fun…especially the big kids {the adults}.  Dh didn’t suffer much soreness from his day of fun, but I have heard from friends that some of the other “big kids” were pretty sore the day after.

What’s working/not working for us…Our new Heart of Dakota curriculum is working fabulously.  It is so nice to not spend the weekend planning {I just open and go}…and it is even nicer to get everything done and still have time to play in the afternoon Smile.

I’m cooking…The cooler, rainy weather has gotten me in the mood for fall…this week I made some homemade bread and a big pot of chili…and I have grand baking plans for the weekend.

I’m grateful for…The fact that we have stayed relatively dry despite all of the rain around us.

I’m praying for…All of those people affected by the flooding in our area and around the country.  And that the rain will stop soon Smile.

This is not just an ordinary old slide…it’s the big slide.  Regulars to the park know to bring their own towels to slide on…and some even bring waxed paper for a super fast ride!

Wow! You're not kidding! That IS quite a slide! I bet it's super-duper fun though, huh? LOL Stopping by from The Homeschool Mother's Journal.
