In my life this week…
These past few weeks have been full of exhaustion the source of which I am unsure. I realise that for me this is not a good thing. God in His infinite wisdom knew I would need a break and a rest nearly nine months ago when we accessed discounted airline tickets for three of us to go to Queensland. I am so grateful as I real need a break and a rest.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

- Reading this gracious reminder by Lori over at Always Learning Requiring Husbands to Help Around The Home I had been feeling very frustrated with my spouse and children over this very issue. I am really blessed as I have a spouse who fixes things for me, builds things for me if I ask and looks after our yard really well. Sometimes it just takes a shift in perspective.
