This week was a fairly good week. My son is making good progress with paying attention in school which can be hard for a 6-year-old little boy. But I am finding giving a reward such as reading a book to him after he has completed his more difficult work helps him to stay focused and concentrate on his lesson at hand. He doesn’t realize he is also learning when I read to him. We also did a few experiments with making a rocket. We finally got one to work with a balloon and straw on a string. My son still wants to build a two person rocket to go to outer space. 🙂
With my daughter, we completed her first dissection this week of a worm. I am very grateful I took all the science I did in high school way back when it really helps to have done it before. She found the dissection really interesting. But she always has loved science and experiments.
My exercising fell by the wayside most days this week. I only was able to fit it in 4 days, but at least I did some right? I can really concentrate on doing better this upcoming week.
What I was able to accomplish this week,
Keep listening to book of Matthew each morning at breakfast Every morning but one we did our Bible CD Continue my Bible study through Luke with the Good Morning Girls (Thanks Erin, for suggesting this)
Do my 10 Jumping Jacks and 10 Push Ups each day (just got this in 4 days this week)
Drink 6 glasses of water ( I did drink about 4-6 glasses each day this with so I am making progress) Post a recipe each day for 4 Weeks of Frugal Recipes Series Continuing reading Fear Faith and a Fistful of Chocolates (my amazon referral link) I am making progress but I am a slow reader. Start decluttering the kitchen. I worked on the drawers this week and they do look better
Write a note of encouragement to someone
