THMJ Week of 11/3/13

 We finished packing our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  We prayed together for each recipient.  The only thing left is to write notes and color pictures.  Collection week starts this Sunday!

    In my life this week…
My Christmas cactus was in full bloom this week.  Apparently, this phenomenon is happening to other friends' cacti all over the country.  Weirdness.  And kind of sad, since I'm guessing they won't be  blooming next month.

    In our homeschool this week…
School at home went pretty well this week, but co-op did not go as well.  Two boys were Mis. Er. A. Bull.  Except archery.  Xav loves archery.
   Things Dad is working on...
It was Pumpkin Smashing Day (video) this week.  Every year after halloween, the boys get to smash their pumpkins.  This year, it was way more exciting.  :)
And that last pumpkin was sooooo gross.  It had been painted, but not carved and it was black inside.

    Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
The Old Schoolhouse has a FREE welcome basket of goodies for new homeschoolers or anyone considering homeschooling.

    My favorite thing this week was…

Fleece sheets fresh from the cedar chest!
Oh!  And this incredible dragonfly Pinterest board my friend sent to me!  Stunning!

Meet up with us over at So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler.
