Random 5 on Friday

1. Fall t.v. is here! Parenthood, Criminal Minds, Survivor, Law and Order: SVU, Big Bang Theory and a few new ones I am trying out.

2. How do you handle a really poor coach in a sport that your child loves, especially when playing on that team is the only available option? It's trying at its best and excruciating at its worse.

3. I am so glad it's the weekend and there is nothing on our schedule until Sunday. I seriously might get into my pjs at about 4:00 this afternoon and not get out of them until Sunday morning. Extra responsibilities have made this week an exhausting one!

4. Dawson told me that, after some thought, he has decided that he might go to school to be a teacher. He is particularly interested in history. Knowing his personality .... how he loves to dig into subjects and also how great he is with kids, especially special needs kids, I think he would be a great teacher. I have always secretly hoped he would come to that conclusion on his own. I am excited to see him planning his future.

5. I am not even sure I should dare to say it but my sticky child support case with my ex-husband is scheduled to conclude on Wednesday. I would appreciate your prayers for a just order for my children.


  1. All the best in court! Kids should have all the support - financially and otherwise - from their father's. (I struggle here with that too...) I keep forgetting or running out of time for Random 5!

  2. Prayers for #5! About the coach- I am not sure. We had an awful year a while back. I thought sticking it out was best, but my son is still pretty upset by his experience from 7 years ago! I am not sure we should have quit, but it sure is frustrating. I used to watch Criminal Minds with my daughter and her now husband (when they were dating)- I can't watch it by myself though. I'd never get to sleep! Enjoy some time hanging out in your pjs! :)

  3. I hope you and the family have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Oh I hope Wednesday goes easy and smooth! And hopefully will be done for good! And I love #4 too!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
