Week In Review

Filed under: faith,Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 5:53 pm


Our Little Man is interested in bandages ever since he was a patient for his daddy for the 21st birthday party we went to

Took Our Little to the doctors today. He has a slight eye infection.

home schooled

Mr Wonderful took Our Little Man back to his dads till Wednesday

met My Home Schooler and we did his permanent paper run – he doesnt like it – maybe because he had already done the relieving run too – maybe because its new

I LOVED it felt pumped when I got home – good exercise


while Im enjoying My Home Schoolers paper run Im not enjoying his attitude I think he is finding 2 runs too much but I have told him I could do it for him and he doesnt want me too

He doesnt me to get paid for it

The boys (Mr Wonderful and Our Little Man) came home today
An hour before I was meant to meet My Home Schooler for his run Dee came over which was nice. Cut her sons hair.
Today the paper run was so much better. I grabbed some mandarins on my way out the door and gave them peeled to My Home Schooler along the way. It worked he was so much nicer to me.
Spent some time after home schooling today singing praises to God. I enjoy singing. We had finished today on a bible theme you may visit if you would like.
paper run Im getting fit and My Home Schooler is getting familiar with the new run

Im a soppy old thing. We have been reading through the Little House on The Prairie books. We are up to On the Banks of Plum Creek. Grasshoppers had come and eaten all the wheat. The wheat that the Ingalls were depending on. They lost everything. As I read it to My Home Schooler I cried. My Home Schooler hugged me, Our Little Man gave me some of the mandarins he had been eating. I finished the chapter. My Home Schooler went to do some of his writing (his idea). He is a good creative writer and Mr Wonderful (whom Im not sure realized what had happened) gave me a cup of coffee. Bless my 3 boys.


We decided some days ago that I would do My Home Schoolers run on a Saturday morning and be paid for it. He is still doing the relieving job and we knew he wouldnt be able to do both by 8am. So up we both got up at 6.30 am. 15 minutes later I headed off to do one and My Home Schooler headed off to do the other. It was a bit windy and my eyes and nose watered but all was good. I watched a lady delivering pamphlets to the same roads I was delivering too. I probably was watching her more than I realized as I wondered whether I had forgotten to deliver one of the papers to a distinctive house that makes you notice it. I got to the end of that road and doubled back. I had delivered it. I got home 10 minutes before My Home Schooler and made our traditional Sunday morning breakfast. Yes its Saturday My Home Schooler requested I make it today and I can tell you I had built up an appetite too.

After breakfast and a little time on the computer I clean the house.

This afternoon I filed My Home Schoolers work for the last 2 terms before that it was just in boxes

Tonight we watched 2 dvds and ate chips and popcorn an enjoyable evening


I went to a church at the same place where the play group we go to is held. I know some of the people there. I met with a dear friend there and it was nice sitting beside her in church. I was also greeted with a big hug from the pastor. He is married to the lady I run play group with. What a wonderful welcome. I use to go to this church when I first came to the Bay and I think I will be going back when Im not doing creche or My Home Schooler doesnt have communion to help with at our usual church. I can ride my bike or walk to the playgroup/church easily. It was a beautiful day for walking too. Dee popped in first thing this morning and gave My Home Schooler a cell phone she doesnt need anymore. So she gave me a lift there.

I have also been prompted to read John and Peters gospels.



  1. I love the Little House books and I always cry when they have troubles and tragedies. šŸ˜‰

    Busy week again. Hope M.’s Dad is doing well after his heart attack.

  3. My girls can’t wait to be old enough to deliver pamphlets, they have already started a wish list of things they want to buy, lol.

    Have a great week Jen.

    I think a paper run is better and Ive tried pamphlets before in the past
    you have a good week too Hay šŸ™‚

  4. One of my favorite Christmas shows to watch each Christmas is Little House: Christmas on Plum Creek. It’s the one where Laura trades her beautiful pony for a wood stove for her mother. It makes me weepy every time I watch it.

    Sounds like you had a wonderfully busy week! Glad the new paper route is going better.

    We havent read that part of the story yet but its coming up šŸ™‚ Thanks Melissa
