Tired, Tired, and Oh yeah, Did I Mention I was Tired?

I tell you, it seems that things have been just crazy lately. I have been “uber” productive (that being my nine year old’s favorite catch phrase right now, but it does mean that one does not get a lot of sleep. I have found myself working until two or three in the morning working on […]

So, I just realized how long it has been since I posted. Between homeschooling and moving, it has been a crazy year. We ended up moving to Winchester, VA where it is absolutely beautiful, and completely out of my comfort zone. I miss the warmth of Florida for sure, but I love the people of […]

Sorry – I have been out of the loop! I have been working on editing the Mommy Manual and I had no idea how much I wanted to change. Then there were those things I changed and then changed them back, so needless to say it has been a slow process. But I am getting […]

Summer and Going Back to School

So, when you homeschool summer takes on a new meaning. Now, when my kids went to school, we always did the Summer Bridges to Learning books over the summer so they never really had a whole summer off. It kept their minds fresh, and prepped them for the upcoming year. When they go to school […]

Finances are on my brain today. I can’t stop thinking about money. With the new school year coming up there are a host of new field trips to be signed up for, and yes, they all cost money. As I have mentioned, my children used to go to private school, and we paid for their […]

Excitement Takes a New Bent

You know, I find the things that get me excited these days are sad on some level. Today I found a new catalog for school stuff – things for decorating your classroom. Well, in trying to figure out where to put all of the new posters, etc. that I found I was LOVING, my husband […]

Homeschooling Continues

It is funny, really, the amount of time that I now dedicate to my children’s education. It is not as though I didn’t before, I mean, I have always been very involved in their lives.
