Okay... I've been missing for a few weeks. Just didn't have a whole lot to share. But after my husband and I attended our foster care training last night I couldn't sleep thinking about how my family is a gift. My marriage is a gift and each one of my kids is a gift. Homeschooling is a gift, my home is a gift . . . I could go on and on. What am I doing with these gifts God has given me? They have not been given to me to be put on a shelf but to share my gifts with others. My salvation is a gift, I'm I sharing that with others? I'm scared about a foster care/adoption journey but how can I not share what God has given me so that others might know the love that I have received at the hands of a loving God?

What have we been up to this week?

We have been helping DD13 memorize her catechism questions. We've focused on the bible verses first then we will move to the science questions.

Moving steadily through Math lessons in Saxon and Horizons. We've been really slack on Science since leaving the Botany lessons behind but this week we conducted an experiment on convection and ocean currents. I found some books at the library on different experiments so we will just keep using the Scientific Method while performing these experiments.

Took the Unit Test on Verbs in Easy Grammar .... next Nouns.

Steady as we go in Wordly Wise.

IEW fell by the way side this week and only one history lesson in SOTW.

I don't know what is going on in my schedule that I can't get 2 days of Science and 3 days of History. Maybe we need to get up earlier... hmmm.

Sorry no pics to share I've been slacking on that too. I have got to get it together next week to share a more exciting wrap up.

How was your week? Join the weekly wrap up by visiting the weird, unsocialized homeschoolers blog and sign up and see what other homeschooling families have been doing this week.


  1. Sounds like a pretty good week. Fostering would be a little scary, but exciting too. I can't wait to hear about it. We barely have enough room for our own now, but I keep thinking it might be something we could do when ours are grown.

  2. Hurray for being on your way in the foster care/adoption journey! We have adopted from foster care (a teen girl!) and we're starting the process again!

  3. How exciting about fostering/adoption! I'm sure it can be a bit scary too, but such a wonderful thing.
