Homeschool Mother's Journal--#3

The Homeschool Mother's JournalIn my life this week… I learned to make coconut milk for the dairy-sensitive kid, and I learned to make coconut flour for the gluten-free kid. Have I mentioned that food allergies stink?

In our homeschool this week… Slow and steady... There have been A LOT of distractions and disruptions to book work. I am learning to be flexible.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… We have a big fundraiser going on this week. We have been selling chicken plates, and we will be delivering about 400 of them this Thursday. The kids will be helping. I love that they can be included in everything that we do.

My favorite thing this week was… Walking/running with Hubby. Our goal is three walks a week. We are up to 1.5 miles, and I am jogging bits and pieces. I should say *I* am up to 1.5 miles. Hubby is fit and could easily walk another 1.5 miles. He has run in several 5Ks, and he actually enjoys it. I am trying...

Questions/thoughts I have… Can anyone help me add a "reply" button to the comments section of my blog? I have googled it and tried several times, but I can't get it to work. Help?!

Things I’m working on… SELF-DISCIPLINE...ugh! I want to be fit when we get to Ecuador. We will walk a mile TO Casa de Fe every day and mile back home every day. I really NEED to be in a shape other than round. :)

I’m grateful for… sunshine! It's been really rainy here for nearly a week, and the sun is shining today. I am grateful!

A photo, video, link, or quote to share… The video tutorial from the Mommypotamus that taught us to make coconut milk! :)
