I've had sadness and joy. I posted about the sorrows, and I am thankful for God's goodness to me and our family.
My husband has work; our four kids are here with me all day; we all have our health.
I've been blessed by friends, near and far, who have prayed for mourning friends, and who have encouraged me with words of comfort and blessing.
In our homeschool this week...
Our kids were involved in sheep scanning, and I love it when 'schooling' looks nothing like 'school'.
Our Wee Guy is becoming obsessively fond of History. Especially when battles of any description are involved.
Places we're going and people we're seeing...
Er...places we're going? You mean, people go places? Does the washing line count? It's outside.
The kids will be at their twice-weekly Swimming Club, and I will be transporting them.
As for people we're seeing. Well, my friend at No Place Like Home is about to have her baby. I hope to be seeing a cute little bundle very soon. Can't wait!
My favorite thing this week was...
Seeing the kids walking the sheep to the fank early Tuesday morning.
Yesterday, we had such a gorgeous day. We had sunshine all day, and barely any wind, but the waves rolling in were huge. I could have sat and watched them all day.
(I know I sound like a broken record talking about the waves, but I never tire of watching them. They are therapeutic.)
What's working/not working for us...
Our timetable is working quite well, but it's a full timetable and we were going to review it at the beginning of February. We have decided to follow our timetable Monday to Thursday, and use Friday for catching up on essays and subjects that weren't completed earlier in the week.
Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...
We're already looking at next year's curriculum. I'll keep you all posted as we make our decision (and purchases!)
A photo, video, link, or quote to share...
Behold the Man with unlimited sympathy and empathy. Behold his huge and unlimited heart. Behold his tender and sensitive love!
I come to Him, weary and heavy laden, saying: "Lord I cannot cope with all these sorrows. But you can. I have no more capacity, but you have. My sympathy reserves are empty, but yours are ever full. My heart is narrow and limited, but yours is immeasurably wide. Please take these sorrows and extend your sympathy. And more than that, add your power to your pity; add your hand to your heart. Feel what I cannot feel. And do what I cannot do."
