The Rundown – Week in Review – Week 9

Care to Share?

The weather is gorgeous around here and it’s getting tough to stay focused on my to-do list.  Anyone else feeling that way right now?  What’s the fall version of Spring Fever?  Whatever that’s called, we’ve got that happening right now.  🙂

I don’t really know why, but I didn’t catch a ton a pictures from our homeschool time this week.  We had some great moments and even had fun weaved into our days, — can you tell?— but I don’t have a ton of pictures to show for it.  Both Prissy and The Boy spent time doing their respective assignments and it was a great week, but these homeschool moments just weren’t what this week was all about for us.

Our time spent outside was by far the highlight of the week!  It’s finally looking a smidge like fall here in eastern NC and it was the perfect weather for leaf hunting and nature walks.  It made my mom-heart smile to see the kids picking out their favorite leaves, discussing them, and then making a nature journal afterwards — without any prompting from me.  Indeed, these are the blessings of homeschool.

DIY Dormer Window Desk

We’ve also got a fun DIY project going on right now.  We’ve had plans to make a desk for one of our dormer windows upstairs for while now, but this project can officially be marked off the Pinterest to-do list.  Hubby and my father in-law have been working hard on a custom dormer desk just so we’d have a designated spot for writing.  It’s not finished, but it’s looking great so far and  I’m looking forward to putting it to use!

The Day to Day

From simply having fun in the yard to some time with our toes in the sand, it’s been a great week of togetherness for my crew.  Sure, none of these things individually seem all that noteworthy, but they piece together a picture that’s such a blessing to me.  I love that our family life is spent together.  I love that we aren’t just people living under the same roof.  It’s a blessing to do life together in this way.
