For the past couple months, we (hubby and I) have been planning a weekend getaway. We’ve also had a financial bombshell go off in our laps… which seemed to leave my husband wavering about cancelling our trip. I was unswayed. As a mom, I sincerely needed a break! We even found an affordable hotel room… Continue reading Changing Expectations
Have you ever found yourself at a loss for teaching something? Me too! And multiplication is no exception! Mind you, math was my favorite subject in school- it came easy to me! But have me teach it? THAT is another story. I’ll try to keep this short. I currently have a 9 year old and… Continue reading Times Tales Review
We are currently in our 5th year of homeschooling. Pausing here to say… I don’t feel old enough, mature enough, and certainly not wise enough to be saying that. (Seriously- where does the time go!)

You know the saying, ‘when it rains-it pours’? Life just does seems to be that way… I’m sitting in my living room, which has suddenly became me the ‘sick ward’ in our house. 4 hours ago everyone was healthy… that quickly changed to 4/6 with upset stomachs… which rapidly changed to 2/6 throwing up! So,… Continue reading When it all happens at once…

So in my last post, I mentioned that I had recorded a new podcast episode… only to have it deleted. That podcast was talking about my word of the year- Peace. So let me just blog for the moment, instead of podcasting. When I chose ‘Peace’ as my word of the year… I think my… Continue reading Peace?
Has it really been since FEBRUARY that I did a podcast? How is that possible? There has been SO many things to talk about, to talk endlessly about… So where do I start? Oh… I know. I actually DID sit down and record a podcast a month or two ago (I really can’t remember when… Continue reading Time…
