I do have more children, but this cutie is available more often for pictures. She tends to be happier to smile for the camera, too. :)
Last weekend, I attended the Homeschool Moms' Winter Summit. I had a wonderful time, and I learned a lot. I wish every state had something similar for homeschooling mothers because we can all use that kind of encouragement and refreshment. I went with a friend, and I also enjoyed spending time with her. I think she went to spend time with me and was pleasantly surprised by how much she learned and was encouraged despite her twenty years of homeschooling. :) As I've told many people already, you know you have a good husband when he lets you go off for the weekend, leaving him alone with five children. :)
Here are a few other things I enjoyed this week:
- texting my sister. We don't do that enough.
- finishing a good book
- Hannah's birthday
- an empty day. One of my children was sick Wednesday, so we had to stay home from CC. Since CC takes our whole day and we're tired when we get home, I schedule almost nothing to do on those days. Staying home gave me a day with nothing planned! I was able to catch up on a few things that I hadn't gotten to earlier in the week and also get ahead by doing things scheduled for Thursday. That was nice! In case you're wondering, we did do a little bit of school, too. No need to waste the day! ;)
- soccer! Sarah Beth and Daniel both started practices this week. We were worried about Daniel's team because I received an email stating that they didn't have a coach for it yet. But someone came through and volunteered!
- listening to CDs of some of the workshops at the Summit that I missed because I was in different ones: one by Lisa Pennington and one by Susan Seay. I look forward to listening to the last one I have and then listening to them again!
We don't have much planned this weekend which is nice since I was gone last weekend. Well, there's Daniel's birthday, but he hasn't asked for much, unlike Rachel. :)
What did you enjoy this week? What do you have planned for the weekend?
