Weekly Review

Filed under: week in review — by my3boysandi @ 5:07 pm



Mr Wonderful and Our Little Man came home this afternoon

They had a wonderful time

And Our Little Man got a late birthday pressie from his aunty


I got an award from Amy – thanks my sweet friend

and if your reading this consider yourself awarded too ๐Ÿ™‚



My Home Schooler put up our Christmas tree today


This morning as well as the usual home schooling we wrote thank you letters to the sponsors of the yatching last week

I wrote the letter draft witMy Home Schooler telling me what to write
then he made it into a good copy
then we photocopied the letter and I wrote the address on them and the envelopes

quite an undertaking but weย  were so blessed to have been able to do the yatching


one of the home schooling families are helping to raise funds for their church for their missionery team serving overseas.ย  They had desks for sale so I brought 4 – 1 each for the boys, 1 for the home schooling computer and one for beside my bed – they hold a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ย  They were only $NZ5 each too ๐Ÿ™‚




Iย  got the above award frome Alice thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

we usually to the local indoor pools on a Friday afternoon its a nice way to finish the week

I went swimming this week (I dont usually ) and the boys liked that I did ๐Ÿ™‚


The boys and I went to the library

Then we picked up two more desks for a home schooling friend of mine

and spent the morning there playing.ย  The boys in their pool.ย  My Home Schooler madeย  another home schooling friendย  there.ย  I had a nice chat with that home schooling mum.

Then we took the desks to their new home.ย  We spent the afternoon there.ย  Losing all track of time.ย  We got home at 6.30 pm. ย  My friend has been wondering whether to send her son back to school or not.ย  We got excited and wished wed talked at the beginning of the year.ย  We have decided to make a new home schooling group up.ย  Im going to lead it.ย  Shes going to support me.ย  It will be a Wednesday afternoon get together group.ย  We have decided it really helps when like minded people spend time together and the boys need a group to belong to that consists of other home schooling children.ย  that what has been lacking for the last year in the Bay is a group like this.

When I home schooled my daughter several years ago she was involved in an art group and even more awesome was the fact that the home schooling group rented out a play centre once a week and lot of home schoolers would go to it.ย  I have felt something was missing this year without that here in the Bay.ย  We are hoping that this new group will address that need.

I enjoyed today ๐Ÿ™‚ with friends and my boys ๐Ÿ™‚


church after the service I had to help My Home Schooler find his cellphone it keeps falling out ofย  his pocket

then in the afternoon went back to our home scholing friends house her dog has just had puppies

they were facinating to watch and I helped my friend find out how to care for the runt which didnt seem to be taking its mothers milk well

Ive never had much to do with dogs or baby animals and I felt like I was learning something

the boys enjoyed playing with their friends again too ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Jen, your door and tree look so pretty and festive. Aren’t puppies so amazing to watch. I hope the runt does okay…if he doesn’t, I suppose it’s nature’s way, but still hard to watch the struggle. You’re doing such neat things with your home schooler.

    thanks Gretchen the runt didnt make it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but my home schooler did try
    it really was amazing
