Outside my window. . Grey and dreary. Damp and chilly. There were some
fierce thunderstorms in the night. I actually enjoy a stormy day once in a
I am thinking. . . I need to get on track with Lent. We’ve all been
sick since it began and I’ve been remiss in creating a Lenten atmosphere.
Or maybe that’s it for us this year?
I am thankful for. . . A husband who worked insane hours last week,
honestly he crammed seven days into five, and then spent the whole weekend
doing house projects for me. He is the best.
From the schoolroom. . . Those that are not feverish and hacking will
do school but a slower pace this week. Daddy has tomorrow off and then Nana,
Papa and Aunt Maureen arrive Thursday.
From the kitchen. . . London broil, baked
I am wearing. . .Pink t-shirt, jeans, brown loafers, pink hoodie. Nothing
I am going. . . To the school district office to hand in the
paperwork for Erin to perform at NYSSMA. Other than that no where.
I am reading. . . Educating the WholeHearted Child. I won it from Margaret
I am hoping. . . This cold/virus leaves soon and that Brendan does
not come down with it. I’ve been a real mother tiger in protecting him from the
germier among us. Thank God for the immunity benefits that come with
I am hearing. . . The Wiggles with Bridget and Sean singing
along. Which makes it tolerable.
Around the house. . . Laundry (what else) and a general pick-up. I
have to buy some curtain rods and put up curtains upstairs, Dave installed
blinds this weekend so we are no longer living in a giant blue fishbowl.
One of my favorite things. . . Triaminic chewables.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . . Irish dance,
guitar lessons, visitors, hopefully no doctors for the first time in weeks.

Oh, Mary Ellen…that picture is priceless 🙂
Hey Mary Ellen, hope you enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope you don’t mind but I have a some questions —–
WHY do you homeschool?
What is/was the hardest or most unexpected part?
What curriculum do you use?
What is the highest grade you have taught to your kids?
Do you plan for them to transition into any other kind of schooling in the future?
We are making some big changes and I am hoping for sage advice 🙂
Feel free to email me or just leave the answers in a com box at A Catholic Notebook.
I truly appreciate any information you have to share.
Your little dolly is very sweet. My Peach is seven also, just turned, and I am finding it to be a very sweet age for little girls.
