Dress for Mom on the Go and Homeschooling thoughts…

Posted on: January 13, 2015

As a woman who fully embraces her femininity, 

I love wearing dresses and skirts for every day wear…

On this rainy Monday, I opted to spunk up my mood with a dress..

A super casual way to wear a dress…

A zippered hoodie and flat riding boots…

Perfect for this rainy but warmer day near 60F…

I would love to tell you where this jacket is from,

however it was a mail ordered Christmas gift and I have no idea..

My young photographer wasn’t happy until I smiled better and turned my head..

Here is a dressier way I wore this dress with Navy blazer and Navy suede boots. 

I definitely felt more spunky in this version…

This casual version was something I never would have done before blogging…

I’d have stuck to wearing heels and not paired it with a zippered hoodie either. 

It’s wonderful to be so much more versatile and adapt my love of skirts and dresses for 

My Mom on the Go Lifestyle… 

Dear Readers. Today was the first day back to homeschooling after out 3 week break to match his college siblings being home… Getting a teenager of 14 back into it is not easy… I knew that was going to happen and am very proud of how relaxed I was despite his stalling tactics for the day.. There is still residuals from his years in school with the reading, despite my success in solving his lack of phonetics and his new skills, he just hasn’t built up the stamina to read in courses like Biology (His IEP while in school stated that all subjects had to be read to him as he was a fantastic verbal learner)… The real problem has always been with writing,  so note taking is still a struggle.. He is getting much better and since the lessons are all videos, he only needs me as back up when taking quizzes or tests to ensure he read it correctly.  This is the first year, I’ve enforced note taking and our 3 week break while I was in Ireland set that back.  I am just taking it one day at a time and predict by mid February that he will be much more independent. I think taking responsibility for his own education is so important as I watched each of my older children get to that stage and delighted in their maturity.  I look forward to that stage for this child as well and can see that we have moved so much closer and am quite proud of what we’ve accomplished these past 3 1/2 years.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my daughter called me on her walk back from Boston College today, as I miss her already…(she just went back on Sunday)

I am grateful that my son discovered he left his running shoes here and we were able to overnight them to him before he had PT for his ROTC on Wednesday… 

I am grateful that I took a walk in the light drizzle to the grocery store as the quiet house was getting to me. 

I am grateful that my homeschooling son eventually accomplished his tasks for the day.

I am grateful that this morning we revamped his weekly schedule. 

I am grateful that I accomplished a lot of straightening up around today around supervising homeschooling. 

I am grateful my dear friend sent me a text with photos of the outfit she wore to church with items I gifted her for Christmas. (she’s a single mom, so I thrift and find bargains all year and give them to her for her birthday in May and Christmas, it brings me great joy!) 

I am grateful that my other dear friend who is visiting family in CA texted me as well and I am looking forward to her return at the end of February…
