Mommy Time

I notice that when I sit and use my Mommy Journal my two youngest will sit quietly completing theirs too!
Mom Time
My prayer for them is that even though their journal is for school that they’ll eventually turn them into keepsakes or add their special touch an make memories.

Something I have started to add to my mommy journal is quotes and scriptures on the border of my pages.

I pray my children will take the time to do this to their journals. Even if they only write one or two words.

I started adding the date to my pages because I don’t always complete them in order. For instance the reading page may take me all week to complete.

And even after I will come back and add color to it.

It is rare that I complete one page a day. I’m usually working on several. I may add something to one of the boxes then go to another and add to it.

See the square? It’s only half colored. I’ll finish it, just not today.

This page shows that I ate gmo’s, ack! Yes, it was a high carb day. We were out running errands all day. What I plan to do with these pages is add some notes about what we did that day too. You know me, making every page count and have a memory I don’t want to forget.

This page took me several days to complete. I’d sit and add a few colors, sit again and add more. And actually it’s still not done, I see some spaces that need color.

I can’t draw beyond stick figures but I don’t let it stop me from enjoying my Mommy Journal. I can write, color, and doodle.
The Thinking Tree
And my penmanship is not pretty but I continue anyway because I want my kiddos to see that mama uses her journal too.
Homeschooling Handbook for Moms
I love adding what is happening that day, whether it’s just a few words, verse, song, or smiley face. I also love writing what is important to me and my priorities. Before using my Homeschooling Handbook for Moms, I didn't do that.

  1. I really like seeing how you are incorporating these into your daily life. Is that my name on your prayer list?? (((if so, thank you))) I know it's prayers that have kept my family and I going.

  3. Me again :)

    Do you happen to know the difference between the Homeschooling Handbook for Moms and the Mom's Homeschooling Handbook? Both are on Amazon, and look similar but without samples I'm unsure what the differences are between them.

  4. Are these the two you're looking at (Butterfly Cover):

    http://www.amazon.com/Homeschooling-Handbook-Moms-Do-It-Yourself-Handbooks/dp/1517020166/ref=pd_cp_14_4?ie=UTF8&refRID=1XRTAA4G5N22CR807CFJ

    And this one (Horse Cover):

    http://www.amazon.com/Busy-Moms-Homeschooling-Handbook-Delightful/dp/1517021405/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

    And this one (yellow cover with birds and leaves):

    http://www.amazon.com/Busy-Moms-Homeschooling-Handbook-Delightful/dp/1517021405/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

    The first two are identical. The third one is the one I think you will like most. It has a lot of warm cozy pictures like soup, candles with wax dripping down the sides, things like that.

    The other two are beautiful as well and are a few dollars less.

  7. Thank you :) I'm looking into these! Today is a rainy day here and I could just see us all sitting around and coloring and doodling and having fun together with these. They are a little costly for our homeschool budget, but if it's meant to be, it will work out. It really ties in with my slowing and also my desire to instill a love of learning.

  8. Sarah, the creator and author of these books also have some DIY books.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/151712302X/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=151712302X&linkCode=as2&tag=dyslexiagames-20&linkId=6EQKWYHEWXI3MHER

    I want to get a few for Annette like the cookbookish one, home remedies, etc. Right now Annette is using the Useless Information which she loves. I'll be writing a review on that one soon.

    Maybe you can start with one of those.

    Also with the journals, you can cut the binding off. So if you want to try one out you can cut the binding and use it with your girls that way. If it works out you can invest in having one for each child. If you purchase a 6 week journal it will give you at least 3 weeks for each of your daughters (if using it with two of them).

  9. ((hugs)) and thank you for taking your time to answer ALL my questions today! I loved seeing all your suggestions and liked the idea of them sharing a book, too.
