Weekly Review

Filed under: Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 12:43 pm



This afternoon we went over to our home schooling friends house for history.  I mindedthe home schoolers while my friend went Christmas shopping.  Shes a solo mum 🙂

I also picked up some stuff for cooking for tomorrow and dropped off some Sunday School stuff to one of the sunday school teachers.


In the morning

In the afternoon at kindy

A busy party day


For my Wednesday home schooling  get together group this afternoon we went to Par 2 Minigolf – forgot my cameras memory stick 😦  then went and got an icecream

My Home Schooler then went to doing some filming with his private tutor on her learning game and Our Little Man and I did his paper run.  Our Little Man doesnt seem to like the heat we are having at the moment.  Im not sure what the temperature is today but it was 39 C yesterday


Last home schooling day for 2008 🙂 Its gone by fast 🙂  Im pleased with what we have achieved this year.

After school I went and finished my Christmas shopping 🙂

My how hard it was buying something for My Home Schooler so pleased its all done 🙂


cleaned up my house today and  delegated the vacumming to the boys – Mr Wonderful and My Home Schooler

got rid of the recycling at the recycling centre

sorted out Our Little Mans toys – from baby toys to toddler toys

Next week I will take them to the Salvation Army shop


Sunday School dress rehearsal and then our breakup at Splash Planet


This morning at church we were busy.  The boys were in the play.  There was a part of the service that included the play group and as I led the music on Tuesdays I lead them again this morning in front of the church.  Not all the children that go to playgroup came so we invited some of the younger church children to join in.  The parents were up there to as they are when we do our music at playgroup.  The church seemed to enjoy watching us and as it was pointed out to me it is a special calling I have to lead the playgroup music time.  I hadnt looked at it like that before.

I liked the Christmas tree too.  This is usual  for me as I usually find them tackie.  If I had my way (usually) I would just have a small tree that would sit on the dining room table.  This tree though I thought was lovely.

During the play I sat up the front of the church and was there to promt any children that may need it.  I didnt have to do too much and was proud of them all 🙂

I have to make mention of children like My Home Schooler and those younger that had several lines and did well remmebering them.

Afterwards we had a special morning tea.  Time went really fast this morning.  We got there early.  However, before I knew it, it was all over 🙂

Tonight the boys and I went back to church to watch a dvd.  It was BRILLANT!!!



  1. I think your homeschooler has done so much better this year than any years at school have ever been for him. Your youngest looks like he’s having fun in the photos 🙂

    thanks I think so too and the year went so so fast!!!

  2. I’m so glad everything went well for your program!

    I’m trying to imagine what Christmas is like in your corner of the world. Do you all sing songs about sleigh bells ringing and snow? 🙂 It would seem so different to have Christmas in summer, but for you when you’re used to it I’m sure some of our “wintry” Christmas happenings would seem strange to you.

    thanks 🙂 I am use to it 🙂 Yes we still sing all the Christmas songs in fact I was singing that one as I made the bed today 🙂 We can get outside and play with our Christmas pressies. I dont like the day so much when it rains. I suppose one would buy different types of pressies so maybe if I lived over there I could still play outside if it were snowing. Some people (although I never have) spend their Christmas day on the beaches. We tend to eat hot and cold foods. Salads are popular as are BBQs. I will post photos probably on Boxing day so you can see how day was 🙂

  4. I agree with your little man – I don’t like the heat either!

    How strange it seems to me that you’re swimming and sweating, while I’m sitting here covered up and it’s -12C here right now!

    Our Christmas play at church was last Sunday. Seems that shepherds and wise men figure largely in Christmas plays whether in NZ or the USA. 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, sweet Jen.

    Much love,


    wow -12C I cant even imagine that!!!
    The real reason for Christmas is the same whereever you go 🙂
    love you my very special friend and I too hope you have a lovely Christmas and wont it be special watching Emmy too 🙂
