Looking forward to this week:
Nothing special happening, just looking forward to a good week of homeschooling :)

Tips and Tricks:
Have you heard of My Job Chart online???  It's a nifty little online tool to assign chores and rewards to your children, as they finish their chores, they log on and mark it done and receive points which count towards rewards.  You can even assign custom rewards designed specifically for your family.  

My favorite blog post this week:
Cherokee Prayer over at Chiot's Run

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Tickleberry Farm

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):


Lesson learned the past few days:

That I am where I am supposed to be, that I love the woman I am today and that I'm blessed beyond all riches with the love of my family.

On my mind:
Homeschooling - we have AIMS testing coming up soon.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
John 16:24
