HSMJ the one where I pixel paint and laughter is good medicine.

 In my life this week…
I had so much fun this week playing with long exposures in Melbourne.  I joined the Canon Collective for an evening of pixel stick painting.

n our home school this week…
It's our last week of holidays.  We have spent this week tidying up and enjoying Paul's company.  Paul has been reading Jungle Doctor's crooked dealings to Sir N.

I have downloaded some new software for Sir N to try out from The Critical Thinking Co.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
This week has been a non stop pace and I am tired.
  • Sunday we collected a second hand book shelf with the aim of removing two of the smaller shelves we have and replacing it with one larger one.
  • The afternoon was spent with family to celebrate my brother in laws birthday.
  • Tuesday we surprised my sister with an afternoon tea for her birthday.  She makes some amazing cakes ( Sunflower Creations )
  • Wednesday I was joined by two of my friends and we drove across Melbourne to meet with some ladies from Charlotte Mason Australia for an afternoon of fellowship with the Australian Representative for Ambleside Online Jeanne who blogs over at A Peaceful Day.
  • Thursday evening I joined the Canon Collective for pixel stick night painting.  
  • Friday evening was spent with some mothers watching Mom's Night Out (you can read my thoughts on Do you value "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle ... " from when we went to see it last year.  It was so funny and it is true a merry heart is good medicine. 

My favourite thing this week was…
Pixel painting in Melbourne.

 Things I’m working on…
  • Creating order out of the chaos at home
  • Preparing for our new homeschool year
  • Trying to workout how to better apply a Charlotte Mason approach to our home education.

"You all spend so much time beating yourselves up it must be exhausting. Let me tell you something Girl.  I doubt the good Lord made a mistake giving your kiddo's the Mama He did. So you just be you, He'll take care of the rest." - Bones (Mom's Night Out)
