The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…We are puppy sitting this week for Titan's (our mini schnauzer) relatives (his uncle and mom).  Sure do love having the extra paws around! LOL Life is never boring with canines!

In our homeschool this week…We are still plugging along with reading and math.  Noah this week has been learning how to add and subtract fractions with the Muggins math games we bought.

My favorite thing this week was…helping the boys make new no-sew fleece blankets. 

 Things I’m working on…Continuing to work on decluttering the house.  I went through the boys schoolwork.  We also painted and decluttered the boys' room.  It looks so great now!

I’m reading...Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa Terkeurst.  I have heard such great things about this book.  I need to get a handle on my eating...I exercise enough.  I actually crave the exercise...I need to stop craving the foods that aren't healthy for me. Now that I say that please don't even read the "I'm cooking..." section of this post! *Sigh*

I’m cooking…made refried beans in the crockpot.  They actually tasted great!  Did some more freezer cooking to get a jumpstart on July. Made some French toast scones...yummy!

I’m praying for…Three girls from our church that are going on a mission trip to Ecuador. A friend and her husband in the hospital.  And for the various needs of our youth at church.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share… Flowers from my garden....

Love those no-sew fleece blankets! We've made a few of those.

I've heard of "Made to Crave." I actually have a friend who is blogging about her weight-loss journey and has been going to a Bible study around that book. If you're interested, her blog is located at

Would love to see that refried bean recipe!

Sounds like you still have a little school/learning going on this summer but have time to do your decluttering as well. I find that I just can't squeeze it in during our active schooling part of the year and am also tackling it now. It always feels so good even when you get just one drawer or cupboard done.
