Homeschool Week 3

In our home-school this week....

We taught Maddy about the letter C.  "C" is a tricky letter.... though she is getting the hang of letter-sound recognition... she is pronouncing C as in "ssssssssss".  That's okay.  C is for Car!

Car Snack
Places we're going, people we're seeing...
   We're going to dance now on Tuesdays.  I am happy for the girls, but it is a stressful time of year to go with beets coming up. It starts at 5 and gets done at 7:30, so it will be hard to have Ella along. Plus, we need to pack lunches and eat there, which is also hard. But they are super excited and that makes me so very happy. I am glad they have that opportunity.

My favorite thing this week was....
Doing the Car craft, and finishing the Box Car Children chapter book. I am kind of sad we have to move onto a new book!

Things I'm working on....
My weaknesses.... not being discouraged about it. Learning to take baby steps, but not only that, still trying to do my best so that others might see progress.   "Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies" - Mother Teresa.  "Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress." 1 Timothy 4:15

Things I'm Cooking
pork tenderloin panini with sweet potato and jelly!

one pot chicken and beans

Zucchini pizza
I'm grateful for
my family... who never leave me. For photos and photography. Hoping I can spend more time on that in the upcoming months.

I'm praying for....
Relationships, how I can be encouraging, how I can serve more and be used, to grow in my marriage and to be gentle and loving to the kids each day. I am praying a lot lately that I am a good example and leader to my girls.  "Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity and dignity". Titus 2:7,  being intentional in all things.
