Hi out there! What have you all been up to? Anything fun? We have been having a LOT of rain lately. It has been giving us cabin fever big time! We have had a pretty good week in school even without being able to be outside much. We were able to take a little driving trip to a local farm that makes amazing hay sculptures. I’m sure you can tell what story they are from. We also got some yummy apple cider while we were there.
LH has been working in his Thinking Tree journal a lot. Learning how to add and subtract with carrying and borrowing. He has also been studying jellyfish. Did you know? They are their own worst enemy? They eat their own kind more than anything else…talk about a predicament. Lol
WYH has been practicing writing letters and basic addition and subtraction. He has also been doing some painting. Today, he found a bottle of baby powder and decided to squeeze it up into the air to watch all the particles fly all over the house. Lol He loves to watch how things work, react and go together. I wasn’t too upset…thankfully I stopped it before he had it coating everything. Lol
WH has been working on his Zoology part of his science journal. He was studying one of our dogs and writing down his observations. He starts archery club next week. He can’t wait for that. He has been on a homeschool archery program the last four years and really enjoyed it, but was ready to move up to something with a little more substance. He was able to get his own bow and arrows which was really cool.
Ben and I have been busy with all kinds of things. Of course school with the boys. We are also working on starting an Amazon store. There is a whole learning curve, but we are excited about it and hope it brings us some more freedom.
So, what have you been up to? Anything interesting or cool? Any new curriculum you started using and love? Maybe its been a hard week. Let me know what’s been going on and if there is anything I can pray for. I’ll talk to you later! Remember to check out the Facebook Thinking Tree video I did today. You still have time to watch it, comment or ask a question and get in on the giveaway. I hope you have a great night! Mandy

Motivation Monday…..it started out that way. I got up this morning…I might have hit the snooze button once…or twice. I did finally get up. I made Ben his coffee, packed his lunch and sent him off to work. I decided to get an early start on my chores, which are the dishes and dining room. I felt accomplished for getting such and early start on things. So, I thought I would take a nice relaxing bath. Well, LH woke up early and interrupted that…..but that was ok. Didn’t disrupt my nice morning. Then WYH woke up and he and LH decided to look through their books and look for some to sell so they can make some money. Things were still nice and calm. They were working together figuring out which books were “baby” books and ones they just don’t want to keep anymore. Then WH wakes up and things take a dive….a huge dive….like the kind you feel like you are never going to reach the top again dive. I hear screaming and yelling and bossing around. I hung my head and sighed. It had been such a nice morning. I decided to just leave it alone…they are getting older and I need to start letting them work things out sometimes. I wasn’t sure what would happen I was just hoping no one would end up hurt. Well, the yelling went on for about 5 minutes and it was VERY difficult not to yell what I really wanted to yell. I stayed strong and stayed out of it. Guess what….they quit. They actually quit. They all got cereal, sat down and listened to some silly music. They were kind to each other and let each other choose different music to listen to. Who knows how long this will last, but I’ll take it while I can.
So, when you start getting frustrated try to take a deep breath and calm yourself before you react. That’s a hard one….I know for sure. The more we relax and ask God for His peace and patience the better we will feel and the better our relationships with our kids will be. I hope you all have a womderful day and are able to let your stresses flow away. Talk to you later! Mandy
