Discipleship Deliberation

The week in general ~ proved that it's time to get back into some academic routine.  Brain mush is quickly setting in!

In our studies this week ~ we are studying the art of finishing strong, fine tuning, and some of us are studying obedience and respect.

What needs some tweaking ~ firming up routines.  Resuming some modified studies on Monday will help this, I hope!

My own discipleship ~ REALLY looking forward to daily, predictable quiet time again.  On-the-fly works for a very short season, but it's certainly not a sustainable way of life.

The best thing about the week ~ Slipping into some normal things like grocery lists, shopping, World Tour Wednesday, etc.

Questions, comments, thoughts ~ I'm really looking forward to our modified 4th quarter.  Art (which we've never been very good at squeezing in), ASL, Math, Nanowrimo prep, and Bible Bee.  That's plenty!

Something to share ~ speaking of Nanowrimo . . . Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month?  At the link you can find all sorts of information on how to participate.  In the 'resources' tab you can find workbooks to print out based on your child's ability.  These workbooks will walk them through character development, plot plotting, settings, all sorts of groundwork needed to start.  My girls participated last year, loved it, and are looking forward to it again this year.  They use October for preliminary workbook planning so they're ready for November when they write a novel in 30 days.  There are word-count goals for every level of writer, from your 5 year old on up!

Care to deliberate the discipleship going on in your home?  Here's what to do:

  1. Hey, I tagged you in a homeschool resources meme I found out about today: Hope you can join in. :^)

    My deliberation is up, too:
