And to end this week, I thought I would partake in the Homeschool Mother’s Journal and {pretty, happy, funny, real}. After all, we are being REAL here in this five day series of Real Life Homeschooling. While the first 4 posts were written and scheduled last week, this one is not.

Homeschool Mothers Journal - 5 Days of Real Life Homeschool Day 5

In my life this week…we have been home, alone for 3 solid weeks and someone has been sick the entire time.  We are just a wee bit sick of each other by now.  And the kicker?  I am now sick. 😛

In our homeschool this week…we did a little bit of PreK with the younger daughter and a little reading with the older.  We were on Easter break until Wednesday.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…You can’t do it all.  Ever.  So go with it.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…Nowhere.  Sick.  Ugh!

My favorite thing this week was…getting a date with hubs yesterday.  Yay!

My kiddos favorite thing this week was…I don’t know.  Watching tv?

Things I’m working on…I discovered the Read-Aloud Revival podcast and I’m totally digging it.  Also reading The Help, The History of the Ancient World, and Let Boys Be Boys.  It’s always books around here :).

I’m cooking…not much.  No one wants to eat.  We’ve been grazing on leftover Easter ham for the most part :).   I hear “co’ ham? co’ ham?” (cold ham) from the baby A LOT!

I’m grateful for…the fact that we are actually able to put money away for the first time since having kids (woot!) and that our sicknesses have been minor and temporary.

I’m praying for…an acquaintance whose 4 year old was just diagnosed with luekemia :(.

I rewarded my kids this week by…reading a lot of books.

Something I am ogling or have my eye on…Deluxe Combo Teacher/Student Writing Package Level A from IEW and the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle 2015.  I wasn’t kidding when I said it’s all about the books!

A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…Meghan Trainor has been stuck in my head and I found this rockin parody that says it all.
