For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The Homeschool Journal

The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...

I am learning even more and more to be content and to depend on the Lord for everyday strength and grace. It is so easy to know that we need Christ's strength to live ,as our lives are daily walk of faith, and yet it is just as easy to go on relying on our own strength. The Lord has been teaching me big time how much I need  to take the time to rely upon him. I am still a way  off but the Lord never gives up on his children. Praise Him!

In our homeschool this week...

This week has been a light week, as It was supposed to be a week off. It is hard to belive that we had just done 4 weeks of school. However I did have Zach review his timetables using games on the computer.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...

Monday we had a fieldtrip to the Arboretum and the boys had fun amidst all the mud, since it was raining the night before and that morning on our way there. The boys were able to see God answering our prayers as we had prayed for good weather and got it for the rest of the day.

They studied Maple syrup harvesting and birds:



Thursday was the start of our electives classes. the boys had been looking forward to this and were happy to be able to be with their friends again.

My favorite thing this week was... celebrating 9 years of marriage on Wednesday. Our church family actually surprise us with a little dinner before the prayer meeting. That was really kind  of them.

Here is what my hubby got us for the occasion:

What's working/not working for us...

Any thoughts would be appreciated . . .
