What helps you now as a homemaker that you would never have thought, in the past, that you would learn or use?
Definitely the SHE cards. Learning to do them using 3x5" cards taught my brain how to focus on one thing at a time. Learning to do digital SHE cards made it possible to do them consistently.
What thirst for knowledge gives you an edge?
I hesitate to say that I have an edge. My edge seems rather dull if I compare it to others. I do think my thirst to learn and embrace new things does help me. There is never a time when there isn't something new to learn.
It brings joy to my heart to watch DGS21 use OneNote effectively and efficiently. I showed him how I use OneNote and he took the tiny bit of knowledge that I shared and used it as a springboard to learn more on his own. A couple of months ago, he shared his Bujo OneNote Notebook with me so I get to watch him do daily updates in real time. It inspires me.
Homeschool Day #57 was a success. DS10 was focused and eager to learn. He flew through the assignments in a fraction of time they normally take. I really REALLY love days like this one.
Kathryn - you are the most experienced traveler that I know so I am sure you have already thought of and implemented everything. I wondered what I would do in such a circumstance. I thought of wearing a mask or scarf over your nasal passage to maybe reduce breathing in germs from other people since your immune system is already compromised & fighting off the cold.
One year ago today DBro was told he had Stage 4 cancer and a low chance of survival. WOW! What a year it has been. He wore a mask for much of the past year during chemo so I think that is influencing my thoughts of Kathryn wearing a mash while she is sick and around so many people.
Lunch was with DFriends at a monthly gathering at small town Community Center.
Then, I took DS10 to return library book and check new ones out
Then, DS10 attending Robotics with some other homeschoolers
Then, I dropped DS10 off at his best friend home to play
Then, I went to local store to get fall flowers - pansies and mum's
Then, I went to grocery store to buy sale items and picked up a couple more pumpkins to put with the flowers in decorating the front of the house.
Now I have 15 minutes to put my feet up before picking up DGD7 from school. She will stay with us for the next couple of days/nights while DSIL has his long awaited and once considered impossible surgery.
