In my life this week…

I’ve been busy catching up now that I’m feeling better and mostly recovered from my cold – both around the house and on the blog.. it feels good to be productive again. =)

In our homeschool this week…

We’re wrapping up! We’ve finished “Who is God,” we’re nearly finished with Apologia Anatomy… we’re um… not finished with math. (That will probably happen over the summer.)

I’m starting to think ahead to next year, I’m trying to not lose focus on the end of this year first. But the call of the books and the planning is strong, and I am weak. ;0) So I’m already starting to make check lists in my head and check things off as we work on our current work.

Today we have a book sale/swap with a group of local homeschoolers and I’m hoping to sell and/or find some things (that makes it even hard to avoid thinking about planning for next year.) =p

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Plan enough, but not too much. ‘Nuff said. ; )

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

This weekend we’ll have lots of going and seeing. We have an event at the town square, supper with my inlaws, lunch with my mom, fireworks with friends… lots of fun planned for the weekend — you?

My favorite thing this week was…

Two things:

Ladies Bible Study Tuesday evening.

Realizing that I really do have a mission (statement) for my blog, it’s been there all along, I just hadn’t really put it into words — and then giving it all to God. =)

Things I’m working on…

I know that I keep saying this (it’s true.) Still working on the ebook.

Got a review and giveaway going on right now, for a What’s in the Bible DVD, did you see that?

Cleaning! Using all my new found energy to catch up around the house.

I’m reading…

Still reading in Jeremiah, we’re now on Chapter 13 of “One Simple Act,” reading “Surrender” by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and a bunch of the other stuff in my sidebar. ; )

I’m grateful for…

Feeling better, air conditioning, Sonic Cherry Dr. Pepper, the kids, holiday weekends, family gatherings, good friends, role models and mentors, my husband…

I’m praying for…

LOTS. Colorado, friends, family, the blog, homeschool, provision,…

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

Linky love::

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.
