Pinterest Inspiration & Homeschooling Success

Posted on: November 7, 2014

Today was a cloudy day with light rain and I originally planned to wear my vest like in the inspiration

, but opted for the jacket for more warmth since there was a nice wind …


My son liked catching this shot when the wind caught my hair…

I love that he cares about the photos he takes and in fact he told me I wasn’t smiling right today…


That comment from him brightened my smile to this…


I really am feeling much better today and so happy to be well rested..

Apparently I’d been out of it more than I realized… My husband shared with me today that Monday night he came home and found that I’d left the burner on from making dinner… Then on Wednesday morning after I left for the homeschool bowling group, he discovered that I’d left my omelet maker on (it stays on unless unplugged..) I must point out that this is completely uncharacteristic of me, in fact I don’t ever remember even one such occurrence.   Lack of sleep really messes me up!!!!! 


My outfit is very loosely done by the Inspiration with my switching to jeans

and a brown striped top, and the jacket instead of the vest…

And here is the original Inspiration…

The pants look a lot like my newest ones from Old Navy, pictured here..

Except the faux leather on these are on the inside while mine are on the outside of the leg…


Dear Readers, for my gratitude section today I want to  just share with you the amazing break through with my homeschooling 14 year old…

As I’ve said before I homeschool  him because they had a teaching deficiency that left him with reading and writing problems…We’d solved the reading one completely and I’ve had a few years to delight in that, all the while feeling intense stress that we had yet to get his writing to match his intelligence level… I never really embraced unschooling  but there is something to be said for sitting back and waiting for your child , which is what I ‘ve been praying for…

This morning he informed me that in the mornings while brushing his teeth and dressing that he makes up stories in his head and that they stick in his brain and mess up his homeschooling.   I suggested getting a notebook and writing them out… I saw the look on his face and instinctively suggested it be in a private journal that was just for himself… He looked relieved and agreed getting them down on paper might just be the trick to getting them out of his head.. I gave him a notebook and pen to put in his room and HE  THANKED ME!  

 I have to tell you I danced!   

My reluctant writer is going to write just for himself!

  With his joy at how great the book is that he is reading and now this in just the two weeks since I’ve been back from Ireland!   My cup runneth  over!   

Wishing you all my Dear Readers, A Wonderful Weekend!
