Happy Friday, y’all! I hope you’ve had a great week. It’s been a busy one here as we’ve spent time making up sick days from last week. I’ve also had to resist requests to take snow days just because the area schools are taking them.
If we’d had some actual snow, we’d have taken some time off since we never get it. Instead, all we had were sleet, rain, and icy roads – none of which affect our ability to do school. Sorry kids.
It was icy cold, which resulted in having all the cats in the house, even the one who doesn’t behave well inside. She must have been very appreciative because she was on her best behavior. I really wish she behaved better in the house. She’s such a sweet cat.
We also had the outside dog in the garage with warm blankets and a space heater. It looks like he’ll be in for a few more days. It’s supposed to snow tonight.
In other news, I set up the weekly digest for my newsletter last weekend. If you’d prefer to get weekly updates instead of individual updates as new posts are published, you can now subscribe to the weekly newsletter. Just look for the subscriber box at the bottom of this post. (You’ll have to visit the website if you’re reading in a feed reader or your email.)
You’ll need to click a specific post since the box isn’t on the main page. (So, if you’re reading this post on the main page, just click to post title to be taken to the individual post’s page.) The subscription box will be located after the post, but before the comments.
If you’re already a daily email subscriber and want to switch to weekly, you’ll just need to subscribe to the weekly feed, then, unsubscribe from the daily the next time it’s delivered.
Did you know that I’m going to be in Texas in two weeks? It’s not too late to join me at the Homeschool Moms’ Winter Summit! I think you can still take $20 off your registration with coupon code thsc20. If not, you can take $10 off with code Weird10.
A highlight of my week was watching Josh perform with the praise and worship team at church for the first time. He’s been in the youth band on Sunday nights for a year or so, but this was his first time playing on the main worship team.
He did a great job – and they did some pretty awesome worship songs, too.
I had some fun at About.com this week. I was able to take some ideas that I introduced when answering 10 questions about homeschooling on my site and expound on them a bit about About.com.
First, I delved into the question, “Can blogging count for high school credit?” You probably already guessed that I definitely think it can.
Then, I took a closer look at the question that plagues many homeschooling parents, especially those new to homeschooling, “Am I doing enough?”
Now, I’m off to make sure we have plenty of bread and milk (joking) for the snow I hope we don’t get (not joking). Have a great weekend!
