Another busy week behind me, another busy week ahead of me, my to do list is always full – but if I do it all to glorify God, serving my family is a joy instead of a chore. So here goes!


1.) Bible Study: Morning devotions using this site to study my bible chronologically. Also, catching up on the sermon I missed this Sunday via podcast and working on scripture memorization. (Yes, I missed another one! The kids caught colds last weekend and are still SICK. 🙁 )

2.) “MUST Do” List:

  • Stick to my daily schedule (as God allows) for morning devotions, taking care of the home and home-schooling.
  • Finish organizing papers & bills, especially taking care of the Action pile. – Didn’t work on that at all last week, and now it’s to the point that I HAVE to get it ALL done THIS week. *sigh*
  • Finish organizing Princess’ worksheet binder for school. (I didn’t get this done last week either, but I’m striking it from the list til next week considering the previous task.)
  • Make more laundry soap!! (I have enough left for one more load!)
  • Iron Big Daddy’s clothes for each day, as a labor of love.

3.) Taking Care of My Home:

Daily Chores and then focus on these areas for weekly chores:

  • Monday – Kitchen; Wash Lights
  • Tuesday – Dining Room; Wash Darks
  • Wednesday – Living Room; Wash Towels & Little Prince’s Bedding
  • Thursday – Master Bedroom & Bathroom; Wash Lights & Master Bedding
  • Friday – Kids’ Rooms; Wash Darks & Girls’ Bedding
  • Saturday – Wash Whites; Kids’ Bathroom; Clean Up Yard/Car

4.) Training My Children:

  • Daily basics (Math, Grammar, Handwriting, Spelling, Reading)
  • History – I’ve decided to hang out on Ancient Greece another week.
  • Science – More about plants. Did do science, but didn’t plant any seeds to grow last week, will try to get to that this week.
  • Life Lessons from the Princess and the Kiss


5.) Menu Plan Monday:

There were a lot of substitutions and switcheroos last week and some things are still available for this week:

  • Monday – Cereal & Fruit; Leftovers & Veggies; Granola Bars & Fruit; Family Casserole & Salad
  • Tuesday – Biscuits & Gravy & Turkey Bacon; Baked Potato Supremes; Cottage Cheese & Fruit; Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo & Veggies
  • Wednesday: Cereal; Homemade Lunchables; Pop Tarts & Fruit; Meatloaf, Veggies, Cornbread

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
