Week In Review

Filed under: Dari,faith,Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:43 pm

My Home Schooler started going to Annes twice a week this week. While he was there I took Our Little Man to kindy for an hour. He doesnt start till the 18th but they are very keen for him to come and visit lots before hand. He was so busy busy busy in this hour.

He also learnt how to use a vice. He didnt want to join in the music or story time nor have afternoon tea. The head teacher said hed get use to it all and join in soon.
I picked My Home Schooler up after this and took him to his run. It was his last day doing two paper runs too. His home schooling friend is home again. From now on I will call him Colin and his mum Tina. !5 minutes after leaving the kindy Our Little Man was asleep in the car. My Home Schooler reckoned if he was only there an hour and had already fallen asleep what he be like he starts going for 2.5 hours 3 times a week.
Went over to Tinas house to drop off some stuff for the paper run that Colin will take on again tomorrow afternoon. Spent a bit of time talking home schooling stuff. Im so happy they are home again. I missed them.
Mr Wonderful cooked dinner – bless him. It was already when we got home.
Got an award tonight

If your reading this consider yourself awarded and thanks both to Rachael and you for reading my Week In Review


Playgroup in the morning. Kindy in the afternoon and Mr Wonderful came for a while too 🙂 We had one very tired boy in the evening. Who fought going to sleep even though thats what he really needed to do. He eventually feel asleep at 8pm

An extremely sad day. I cried heaps and heaps. She was more than a person that I blogged with. She was a precious friend. I dont know if any one who doesnt blog truly understands how close we can get to our bloggy friends.
In the afternoon I went for a ride to the shops with Mr Wonderful and Our Little Man it was ok. However, I was down the whole day.
Home schooled today in my PJs. Felt slack and blue. I have the flu and a sore chest. Feel guilty about our quality of home schooling this week. I am still very sad about Dari – didnt cry today though. Mr Wonderful sent me to bed before dinner which he brought for us. Had several inhalations.

Not feeling much better. Feel better being up rather than lying down. My chest and my breathing seem better sitting up and being up rather than lying down.

Colin came over and the boys went to youth group

I went grocery shopping and I might do this on a Friday night from now on. After it I went across the road and went to McDs for a hot chocolate and chocolate cake.

Then I picked up the boys. Colin stayed the night.


Rearranged the house. Mr Wonderful and I decided it was time for Our Little Man to share a room with his brother.

Our room just for us 🙂 hopefully

We made a big thing this morning about the fact that this would be the big boys room and that big boys who are brothers sleep in the same room

A new look for the lounge/my office come new school room

This also means I can set My Home Schooler work and keep an eye better on him thats he doing it and not mucking around

Also went to the library

Also cleaned up the house as I do on a Saturday.

A busy and productive day.

Our Little man took a while to settle down in his bed in the boys bedroom tonight. Im praying it will get better.


Our Little Man woke up once in the night. i took back to bed he eventually feel asleep after 1/2 an hour. Not bad for his first night not cosleeping. His daddy who use to be opposed to cosleeping missed sleeping with him.

Mr Wonderful fixed our microwave 🙂 Clever man that he is decided it was a blown fuse 🙂

got rid of the recycles today and picked up a few things Id forgotten on Friday when I went grocery shopping

A quiet day did some lesson planning for home schooling

Tonight Our Little Man fell asleep on the couch so I put a night nappy on him and put him into his bed so a real easy night tonight so long as he doesnt wake up later



  1. Hope you’re feeling better now Jen.

    We just got a microwave recently, I couldn’t imagine going back to being without one now!

    Im just coughing a bit at night. We all missed the microwave

  2. Will be praying for your speedy recovery and I do hope you’re feeling much better now.

    Love all the pics of the rooms and stuff. Thanks for sharing and have a good week ahead…

    thanks Alice just coughing a bit at night now
    thanks for the kind comment

  3. WOW!!!!!! Little Man is going to SCHOOL???? Already???? It doesn’t seem like he should be that old yet lol! AND sleeping in his own bed now too??? WOW.

    I wonder how much different your homeschooling year will be with Little Man in school part of the day? I bet your Homeschooler will miss him, but probably like the quiet without him lol

    Also, when I was in kindergarten, we had a sandbox just like that, with the little scooper thingy (not a bulldozer… or is it?) that you scooped the sand up with!

    Jana hes going to preschool kindy. He can get in at his tender age. Mostly hes sleeping in his own bed. He likes to come and see us very early in the morning though
    At the moment it wont make a lot of difference to the home schooling with Our Little Man only attending in the afternoons. When hes older hell go in the mornings that will make a difference. Im looking forward to that time but it well could be a year or two till then.

  4. Hope you’re feeling better, Jen. I’ve been sneezing and have a runny nose at times. I think it’s allergies. Ugh.

    Hope your Little Man settles in to sleeping in his own bed soon.

    Good for you getting so much done on Saturday! I need to do some mucking out and rearranging myself.

    Have a great new week, my friend, and thank you for your continuing prayers for me, Jessica and Jason. 🙂

    Love and hugs,


    praying you get better soon too Diane
    he likes visiting us in the early hours of the morning
    I like being productive
    its a pleasure praying for you all

    Hope this week goes better for you.

    Lots of love to you!

    thanks Jess – wow you prayed for us – THANKS

  6. First, I’m so sorry about Dari, Jen. I didn’t know her at all, but I gather from your sidebar, she had breast cancer. I’m sorry for your loss – she obviously meant a lot to you even though you only knew her through blogging.

    I completely agree that it’s important the kids become comfortable with everything before the first day of school. Such an exciting time.

    What an eventful, full week you had. Here’s hoping you get to keep your bedroom to yourself now! 🙂

    Dari had lung and brain cancer
    she did mean a lot to me
    I love watching how he is learning at kindy
    he plans (in his head) what he wants to do and then does it
    me too 🙂 although I dont mind the morning visits

  8. Hi Jen,

    Popping over to say hello and catch up on your blog. I hope you are all recuped from the flu. When did you start homeschooling? What curric? (A topic near and dear to my heart). Sorry to hear about your blogging friend. Hope all is well with you.


    getting there K I started home schooling this year after being told to do it for years. Come over to Im eclectic, I like unit studies and have recently got into lap books. thanks for your thoughts about Dari

  9. I hope your cold/virus feels better soon, Jen. Sorry again about the loss of Dari. She’s dancing with Jesus, though. Sounds like little man is gearing up for lots of adventures in school, and I love your home rearrangement. It takes a lot of commitment to cosleep as long as you did. Enjoy this new phase, too. 🙂 Blessings to you and your family.

    thanks Gretchen just coughing at night
    thanks re Dari and singing singing singing
    she loved singing

    Our Little Man likes kindy
    we kind of miss not cosleeping but Mr Wonderful and I needed some time alone

    I think the rearrangement is working out well

  10. Wow! What a cool place for your “little man” to play. He sure kept himself entertained.

    he loves it Leti 🙂

  11. The rearrangement looks great and the ‘big boy’ statment can certainly have a big draw for kids.

    I can’t believe you did all that you did over the weekend and weren’t feeling good. Hope you are feeling better now.
