HSJ 1.2- birthdays, soccer, & precepts

I was trying to wait to write this on the computer and add in pics. But, Mr. C. has been working in the office. So, I’m using the mobile wordpress app. instead because I don’t want to miss the link-up.
-maybe I’ll edit, and add in links and pics later-

In my life this week…
We’ve celebrated more birthdays, began UpwardSoccer season (times 3), and simplified (well, a little)

My favorite thing this week was…
The ability to Surprise Mr.C.
It’s Rare! VERY Rare!
I’m not good at surprising him Mainly because he’s my best friend and I tell him everything.
So, the only reason it probably worked, was because I didn’t organize all the details. Those were left in another pair of capable hands.
(Thanks, JD)
Point is:
He was Surprised. Really Surprised. & Happy. Which made me a Happy Wife.

I’m cooking…
Usually I make and fry our turkey meatballs. However, this last time I made a batch with 2.5lbs of turkey meat, so I decided to bake them instead.
❤ They were loved by all my guys 😉

I’m reading…
I have a few books I want to read. But, I think I NEED to read “Habits Revisited.”

Things I’m working on…
Still, working on waking up early, (and staying awake 😉 to get the day started) consistently.

What’s working/not working for us…
It was discovered that our family schedule has quickly gotten a little too busy in outside activities. Having something almost everyday of the week. Ummmm, no! We’ve done that before and I don’t want to do it again.
+ we need to leave room for those God-planned not man planned-moments.
We had a family meeting and came to the tough decision to set aside some of those commitments.

In our homeschool this week…
Despite All the activities, fun and outings we were able to get Bible, Math, Reading, Handwriting, and English completed consistently. Hooray!! 😀
I’m looking ahead towards our 2012 Education Plan via a more focused Charlotte Mason Approach.

CJ’s language lesson involved writing Limericks. This one makes me laugh:

There was an old man from New York
Who never would eat with a fork
He worked with manure
And then in the sewer
Went home and ate ten day old pork

Questions/thoughts I have…
I have been told more than a few times, that I have a gift for editing.
I KNOW I’m not a writer. But, I frequently get calls, asking to spell a word or verbally edit a sentence.
Wondering if that is something God could use to financially bless my family.
#just a thought.

I am inspired by…
Kay Arthur!
Had the Amazing Opportunity one evening to listen to Kay, Live in-person. WOW!!
