September 3in30

So I got lost in August. I really enjoyed this in July and it really helped me focus and keep on task so here's to starting over. :)

My 3in30 goals for September:

1. Start Mikah's new home program.

My first 3in30 goal ever was to fill out and submit Mikah's consultation papers. Well, I did that and we had our first phone call just last week so now we just need to get started again. We are supposed to work on the simple program she gave us for 6-8 weeks and then take a video of Mikah and send in the video along with new paperwork. Once that is done she will give us a much more detailed home program to be done for 3-6 months after which we will have the oppurtunity to take Mikah to the Institutes.

2. Restart school.

We started off great August 1st. Then everything kind of fell apart last week with a death in the family and out of town family members staying with is for a while. I need to look past the fact that we are 'behind' according to my planner, not try to fix it and just get started again.

3. Practice Eucharisteo daily.

I am not trying to be legalistic about this. It's just that this practice has been life changing for me and in turn for my family. My attitude is better, my prayer and quiet time is better. Sometimes when the simple things are in place the big things fall in place as well. This seems to be one of those simple things for me that leads to bigger things.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the death in your family! That would be very difficult.

    Those are great, manageable goals - and we are here to cheer you on!!

  2. Hi Michelle, This is my first time visiting your blog. I'm sorry to hear about a death in your family! We homeschool as well. The great thing about that is that you don't have to worry about that planner. Just move everything back a week (or however long) and keep going. :-)

    I've not heard of eucharisteo - you gave me something to look up!

    Great goals and nice meeting you! I'm following now! :-)


  3. So sorry about the death in the family. My motto these days is: We plan. God laughs. Somehow that makes me feel better.

    It's been my experience that it's hard to let go of the idea of being behind, but we started looking at our homeschool as a set number of units for the school year and I find I'm worrying less about being behind and just focus on the unit at hand. It feels freeing now; we'll see how it feels in June :).
