Last week was pretty productive, now we just need to keep that up! It’s a busy week that lies ahead, especially since the girls have extra ballet classes this week, to make up for a class that got snowed-out in March. They normally have class on the same day, but their makeup classes are on different days so that’ll add a lot to our schedule.


1.) Bible Study: Morning devotions using this site to study my bible chronologically.

2.) “MUST Do” List:

  • Stick to my daily schedule (as God allows) for morning devotions, taking care of the home and home-schooling.
  • I finished sorting and organizing all the papers and bills last week. I have a few things left in the action pile that must be taken care of this week.
  • Take the girls to ballet, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday!!
  • Iron Big Daddy’s clothes for each day, as a labor of love.

3.) Taking Care of My Home:

This week I’m going to try to take care of as many monthly chores as possible, so the schedule will be a bit different.

Daily Chores and then focus on these areas for weekly chores:

  • Monday – Kitchen; Wash Lights
  • Tuesday – Dining Room; Wash Darks
  • Wednesday – Living Room; Wash Towels & Little Prince’s Bedding
  • Thursday – Master Bedroom & Bathroom; Wash Lights & Master Bedding
  • Friday – Kids’ Rooms; Wash Darks & Girls’ Bedding

Saturday has a smaller list of daily chores anyway, so we’ll do that and then tackle the monthly chores.

  • Saturday – Wash Whites; Monthly household chores

4.) Training My Children:

  • Daily basics (Math, Grammar, Handwriting, Spelling, Reading)
  • History – Ancient Rome – Go to the library and get more books, too!
  • Science – Plant reproduction and growth.
  • Life Lessons from the Princess and the Kiss


5.) Menu Plan Monday:

There were a lot of substitutions and switcheroos last week and some things are still available for this week:

  • Monday – Cereal & Fruit; Leftovers & Veggies; Sliced Canteloupe; Porcupine Meatballs, Steamed Broccoli, Potatoes
  • Tuesday – Biscuits & Gravy & Turkey Bacon; Deli Sandwiches, Chips, PIckle; Jello & Fruit; Chicken & Pasta, Veggies
  • Wednesday: Cereal; Nacho Supremes; Granola Bars & Fruit; Dirty Rice with Sausage, Veggies, Cornbread

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
