Hello Friday!

It is our first co-op free Friday in the Newman home and it almost feels like summer. The thing I love about home school is that we slowly start finishing curriculum over the last two weeks of our school year. This week we wrapped up writing, language arts, history, Bible, and chemistry/physics. All that we have left for next week is math, reading and spelling! It has been such a good school year for our family… I think. The jury is still technically out until our testing scores come back  😆 .

Let’s take a look at this weeks highlights.

Care Less, Why I’m Questioning & Challenging My Focus

I have had this post in my drafts for about 6 weeks now. I’m not sure if it was a lack of sleep, something I ate, conversations that I had with others, or if I am just loosing my ever lovin’ mind. But something sparked, clicked, or possibly exploded and it came out as word vomit. I’m sorry. I know that isn’t the best or most visually pleasing expression to use, but it’s the only one that makes sense. After a period of sitting on this post I finally decided to click the publish button. 

I feel I should put out a disclaimer to warn you that I am speaking from MY heart. What I have to say is completely directed towards myself. My goal is not to offend anyone, just to share how I am feeling.

I am naively optimistic that we will soon have a little more free time to relax and just be. 

Let’s take a look at this weekends happenings.

Spring Break Recap, 2017

Last week the girls and I took our very first spring break! It may have been a couple of weeks later than we expected it, but it definitely turned out for the best. If we hadn’t waited our break would have been cold, rainy, and gross. Instead we had sunshine, warm weather and best of all, it finally felt like spring. Before our break began the girls and I sat down together and I let them create a Spring Break Fun List and today I am happy to report that we were super close to crossing everything off!

Let’s take a look!
