Is it me, or did this week fly by? In any case, the weekend is here, and although we have next to nothing planned, I am here for it. Steve and I are going to dinner with friends tonight; we have mass tomorrow, and that is about it. Steve has watched the Olympics every night. Flynn and I started yesterday with the Women's Figure Skating, which honestly broke my heart. There was so much sadness, anguish, disappointment, and confusion at a time that should have been a total joy that I could barely watch. We will probably watch the Pairs Long Programs and wait another four years to watch again.
Today Flynn and I will homeschool, and although I don't write as much about that as I used to, I am happy to report she is doing wonderfully. I imagined 6th grade to be difficult for me, as I am much more comfortable in the preschool-lower elementary grades, but we are both really enjoying it! She loves science, especially the space unit we are studying. She actually has a small telescope and a book of stars and constellations we are looking forward to using. Flynn also enjoys world history and math this year. Have I mentioned the amazing YouTube channel we use to supplement our math? It is called Math with Mr. J, and it is invaluable! And a couple of pictures from the past few days...
My Mocha, who is rarely out of my sight. Last night we watched a total guilty pleasure show called Joe Millionaire.
And my Mom. We had the best visit this past week! She looks amazing and is doing so well. We are so thankful for the safe, clean, loving place she calls home. After I took it, I showed her this picture, and she replied that she thought she looked pretty good. Not too old! I told her that I pray I look as good as she does when I am 85! I treasure every moment with her and every phone conversation we share.
Well, I hope you have a good weekend, whatever you have planned.
Thanks for visiting.
See you soon!
What an adorable pup. Your mom looks amazing. Enjoy your weekend.ReplyDelete
Mocha is so precious! I'm glad to hear Flynn is enjoying science! I love the night sky...we have a planetarium here and I enjoy going to some of their presentations. Your mom does look so great! I know it must make you feel so much better knowing she is well-cared for. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Your mom looks AMAZINGGGG!!! Good for her!ReplyDelete
I bet with all the technology, its so helpful to home school now.
I havent even felt like watching ice skating with all the controversary - why does ice skating always have drama????
Glad your mom is doing well...lovely woman...does she live in her own home or with you?ReplyDelete
Hi Brenda! My mom lives in an assisted living home for seniors with Alzheimer's. It is a small, family centered place that we love. We recently moved her from another home that was not meeting her needs, and honestly was horrible! She is much happier now!Delete
Thank goodness for slow weekends! Your mother looks beautiful. The doggie is adorable. Super thank you for the Math with Mr J channel you mentioned. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo!!!! I feel like I haven't been on in forever. That's life. Sounds like things are continuingly going well for you and your family. Wow your mom really does look great. If only we all can be so lucky!!!!ReplyDelete
Have fun on your evening out with friends! I hope you have a delicious dinner and great conversation. Thank you for mentioning the Youtube channel for math. We are going to check it out as that's a subject Charlotte struggles with. Charlotte also loves studying about space so a telescope just might be a good idea for a birthday gift next month! Your mom looks amazing and I'm so glad she's doing well! Have a cozy weekend! No big plans here as we are all a bit tired from the week. Charlotte had a very heavy homework load this week and multiple tests to study for each evening (definitely overload) so we are looking forward to resting and just doing whatever and enjoying the three day weekend since Monday is a holiday off from school. I'm really hoping with homeschool next year her work load won't be quite so heavy. Chat again soon!ReplyDelete
Beautiful picture of your mom. I admire that you can teach your kids. I could never be disciplined enough to do that. Now between Hubs and I there are 4 college degrees, with advanced skills, in history, math, (me) and science, music (Hubs) plus we are both avid readers of almost anything. We have the knowledge, but not the attention span.ReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo. Your mom is beautiful, and I see such a family resemblance! I sure admire you for being a homeschool mom. That is something I really wanted to do with my youngest, Josh, but just didn't feel like I would have been good enough to do it. You have done such a good job educating all of your children. Have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
I agree with your Mom, she looks great. I'm so glad she is in a good place now. It's nice to hear that Flynn is thriving. I love it when a lightbulb lights a child with wonder.ReplyDelete
Your mom looks beautiful. I miss my mom. Gone since 2014. Busy work day at Panera Bread. Late afternoon no indoor dining. Lots items out of stock and staff was low after 3 pm. Glad I don't have to do all the dishwashing. Homeschool is good and better now with internet. None when our kids were young. A bit in high school though. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs and blessings.ReplyDelete
Your Mother is beautiful and I TOO hope to look like her "at 85"! What a blessing to have your Mother to visit with! Enjoy your Sunday dear friend, HUGS!ReplyDelete
I've never watched Joe Millionaire but I just started season 2 of Love is Blind. I loved season 1 and am enjoying season 2 so far.ReplyDelete
Your mother does look good! She sounds like a happy, kind soul. You are blessed, and so is she to have such a loving daughter.ReplyDelete
I'm glad Flynn is doing so well in her studies. I was never very good at Math, and English was my subject. Her telescope is going to be fun for her and help her with the constellations. It's wonderful your Mom is doing good. What a sweet picture of her. And Mocha looks all comfy and cozy wrapped up in the red plaid throw. So cute. I always love to see your home pictures, they warm my heart.ReplyDelete
Funny- before I read the part about what you said to your mom, I commented to myself how especially wonderful she was looking- healthy and happy. :)ReplyDelete
