Homeschool Mother's Journal 10-19-12

It's been a month since I posted an update so I have quite a bit to catch you up on.

In my life this month…  

Wow, okay, so many things have happened this month!  Let's see, I'm still working on eating a plant-based diet and you can catch up on that here at Menu Plan Monday.

October 10th was my 1-year anniversary with Thirty-One!  I am still loving it, and although I thought having an endless supply of purses and bags would be the best part, it isn't.  I have really enjoyed making new friendships and spending some time with wonderful ladies!  And I love that I can use my business to help others.  A friend recently had a fundraiser for a local family and we were able to raise $300, all while shopping for friends and family!  I feel beyond blessed!

Oh, I got a new cell phone, an LG Optimus Elite!  I've had an archaic phone for a while now, so I'm excited to be a bit more connected!

In Funny Bunny's life this month…  
I mentioned earlier that Funny Bunny started American Heritage Girls in September.  Last week she spent two hours volunteering at our local Farmer's Market with other girls in her troop to raise money for Wreaths Across America.  They did such a great job!  I am very happy that she will get many opportunities to volunteer and help others!!  Monday night she will be earning her Joining Badge! 

Two weeks ago she had another piano recital.  She played "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" and a duet with her instructor of "Pumpkin." {Not sure if that is the exact name of it, I think it is a Russian song.}  Oh wait, I researched it and it looks like the song comes from the Russian ballet Chipollino.  After reading the synopsis, I want to see it!!  She is currently working on the song for the Radish now.  :)

This weekend she will be dancing in our local Fall Festival with her Dance Company.  She will be performing in two dances and she is so excited about it!  They have practiced very hard for this!!

In our homeschool this month…  
We have accomplished a ton!  We are on Unit 14 in Heart of Dakota's Preparing Hearts for His Glory.  My goal is to get through Unit 20 before Christmas break, and I think we can do it. 

Funny Bunny just finished reading Betsy-Tacy and started Junonia and A Triumph for Flavius.

And she is finishing up Unit 3: Birds of the Earth in Christian Kids Explore Biology.

Oh, I just love thirty-one. If I didn't already have someone I buy from, I would order from you. I only discovered it this year. Yeah, I live under a rock!

I do too!! That is so sweet of you to say! I meet people all the time who have still never heard of it. :)
