Welcome to the NEW home of The Homeschool Mother’s Journal! I am so pleased that you are with us today! If you are not familiar with the journal writing prompts and guidelines, please see this post.

New Linkup Day

One change you may have noticed right away is that the new linkup is Saturday through Tuesday. I decided to make this change to give you moms a chance to finish out your week and reflect on your thoughts. I hope this idea sits well with you!

New Feature

Each week I will choose 1-3 posts to highlight the following week. It will be at random and hope that can help make this community even more fun!

Post Chosen to Highlight:

This week I want to highlight Christine over at Glory to God. I was blessed to read about her week and LOVED the 3 books she shared about that they used in their homeschool last week! So fun!

Summer Journal Graphics Are Up!

In light of the summertime upon us — I have made a set of summer graphics to use as well. Please be sure to link back to the journal (here) when using the graphics! Thank you!

In my life this week…

It’s Friday already? WOW – this week flew by so fast! It’s been a rough week around here for us. My husband hurt his back and somehow I managed to pull something in my right calf, and injured something on the arch of my left foot. Seriously! NO idea how I managed to do that!

In our homeschool this week…

We’re in “summer-lite” mode in our homeschool, mostly wrapping up the year. We will OFFICIALLY be done next week! Yay! And then it’s time for me to start planning for the next year, which is always incredibly exciting for me!

My favorite thing this week was…

My husband’s birthday! The girls made the cake themselves, and frosted it too. :o)

My kiddos favorite thing this week was…

The girls loved our little nail painting session this week. We got creative and colorful!

Things I’m working on…

I’m working on another book – a novel of sorts. We’ll see where my mind takes me. I’m pretty excited about it!

A video to share …

    It is always exciting to start planning for the next school year. I’m doing that myself, too. Sorry to hear about yours and your husbands injuries. Hoping for a quick recovery for both of you.
