The Weekly Ramble

This week is a blur. FishBoy11 tested for yellow belt on Sunday. I overslept on Monday. On Tuesday, we visited the USS Midway for a field trip. Wednesday I went to yoga. Thursday we did running club, library, post office, and lunch with the FishPapa. On Friday I went to yoga and cleaned house for a visit with the inlaws.

In and amid all that, we forgot to go to Karate, started reading through The Warden and The Wolf-King, and tried to keep up with school. Yes, we’re doing school all summer.

It was a week of survival, but that’s okay. That’s how we roll.

Coming up in the next week, we’ve got one SAT exam, two days with the grandparents, two birthday celebrations, and a trip to the Great Homeschool Convention for FishPapa, the teenagers, and me. Who’s going?! Let’s meet for coffee!

Meanwhile, here’s what’s been happening on Life as MOM:

Here’s what’s been happening on Good Cheap Eats:

Coming next week:

  • 9 Ways to Have a Great Week
  • Summer Activities to Foster Kindergarten Readiness
  • Freezer Cooking for Men
  • Free Screen-Free Play
  • Gambling on Jesus

Be sure to let me know what stories and articles are helpful to you and what you’d like to see more of in the coming weeks. I want to make your “life as MOM” as fun and as easy as possible.

  1. Sounds busy! We were on vacation the first part of the week which was great. It was back to reality on thurs w work and laundry… My oldest took his SAT today.

  2. I will be at the conference. Jumping in to homeschooling with my transitional kindergartener after resigning from teaching for seventeen years. Super excited!!!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
