Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ October 28, 2011

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…Vacation was over, the kiddos were on the mend…it was time to get back into our regularly scheduled routine.  We are not back to a regular routine yet, but we are much closer than we were on Monday Smile.

But I have to admit…it was hard to go from warm, sunny and {mostly} relaxing days at the beach to chilly, rainy and {mostly} busy days back at home. Winking smile.

In our homeschool this week…reading, writing, math, William Penn, viruses, t-cells, b-cells, k-cells and antibodies…

I am inspired by… the crisp air and brilliant blue skies of fall…this kind of weather inspires me to bake and clean and prepare for winter Smile.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…lots of errands: consignment drop off, apple orchard for more cooking apples, bank, post office, the final baseball games of the season and hopefully a trip to the pumpkin patch before it closes up Smile.

My favorite thing this week was…being home…we had a lovely vacation, but there’s truly no place like home Smile.

I’m cooking…more applesauce and apple crisp, chicken in the crockpot {which was yummy and made the house smell wonderful!}, homemade rolls in the bread machine to go with the chicken, and chicken broth using the chicken carcass...yep, it’s fall.

I’m grateful for…cozy slippers and our space heater, they’re calling for SNOW in our area tomorrow!

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


This pic is in the running for our Christmas card  Smile.

That is a beautiful family picture! It would make a perfect Christmas card.

I'm working on apple pies today. :-)

Thanks for visiting Contented at Home!

Yes, great family photo and I'm jealous of your snow forecast. I'm all about the cold weather and would love to live up north. An Autumn snow is beautiful.

It is hard to get back to reality after vacation. . .but it sounds like you are doing a great job!
Have a great week!

I love the beach too, but there's really no place like home:)

Your family photo is fantastic!

I can't believe the snow this early in the year! It was in the 60's here yesterday, so we'll enjoy it by getting outside while we can. By the time we get snow, we'll be ready for it:)
