In my life this week… the week started very bummed because my beloved Packers lost last weekend. *sigh* I have managed a couple mornings of God Time, but for the most part I haven't gotten back in the groove of getting up early for quiet time since I got sick in December. I waver on whether to put more effort into getting up early because if my body is sleeping, it must need sleep. On the other hand, I also need God Time. What I keep reminding myself is we are not back to normal and I probably need to go with the flow of what's happening and not force anything.
|What homeschooling in the winter looks like at my house! The girls had been playing outside and were too cold to take off their layers!|
Look what we did. . . these are the pages the girls created for the Hindu path and the Buddhist path. I did not give them directions; they both developed their own vision of the page and then created it.

I am inspired by… the Winter Hopscotch from iHomeschool Network
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… last Friday we met with our local homeschool group for a science day. Here are a couple pictures from that:

Things I’m working on… I had another successful week of counting calories which has meant success in slowly taking off weight. What I've learned is that I could be eating 200-500 calories less a day and I did for a while until I remembered I don't want to lose weight at that pace! So this week I've been trying to keep my calories no more than 200 below my daily goal.
|ODD says this book can get very confusing at times, and it has a funny and sad ending. She has read all the previous books in the series, but has decided to read something else for a while instead of moving onto the next book.|
|YDD liked how going to Mars was an accident, and asked for more of the series which I took as a good sign. What surprised me was that she finished this book in 60 minutes of reading.|
I’m thankful for. . . another good biopsy result for my husband this week.
