Week in Review!


One word......busy!

As always right?

How has your week been?  And what is up with it being Sunday already?  I feel like I haven't had a chance to relax at all and we're already on Sunday afternoon and gearing up for another busy week ahead.


Anyway, here is just a look at a few of the things I was busy with.


Managed to keep up with the Crochet Mood Blanket, it helps that I'm only making a square a night and usually do it right before going to bed, while I'm talking to the hubby or watching a show on tv.


Had a field trip for the high school on Friday, at the Anne Frank Memorial.  Wonderful place to visit and very educational.

We've also had some freezing temperatures here which make it so cold to go outside, but beautiful nonetheless.



There's also been homeschooling, portfolios, tests, dancing and tae kwon do, bills and house cleaning, job hunting and book reading and cooking and laughing and chatting.

It's a very busy and full life at the moment, not a spare second to waste, but rewarding. 

There are certain moments that I do feel like I can't catch my breath, like everything is coming at me at once and I can't quite keep my head above water.....but it's also in those moments that I find my strength and my faith in God.

I've learned so very much the past few months since leaving the military.  Some good things, some bad things, some unexpected things but all lessons that continue to teach me and mold me as I go on from day to day.

And for that, I'm thankful and blessed!

Your mood blanket is coming along lovely!

Sounds like such a great trip, I have read The Diary of Anne Frank several time since I was a teen. I find it amazing that her father survived and published her writing for all to see!

I love the mood blanket. The Anne Frank memorial looks like a very education place to visit. I have read and taught her Diary of a Young Girl. So glad you are feeling blessed and grateful for all the lessons of the past months. Your blog is always an inspiration to me!
