Re-evaluation Time

Holidays are over and it is back to school time. Normally around this time each year I start to panic. I look at how much time is left in the official school year and before testing and what not, and I think to myself – well, we are utterly failing. We are not getting enough […]

Incommunicado

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 […]

Updates – It’s Been a While

So, we have been homeschooling and LOVING it! Who would’ve thought?! It has turned out to be the best possible thing that could have happened for us this year. The education that my kids are getting is superior to anything I could have paid for! Seriously. What you don’t realize when you take on homeschooling […]

Wild Ride

It has been crazy around here so I apologize for the length of time I have taken off! Summer is always a great time, but it is also the time of getting nothing accomplished. I end up spending my days playing with the kids instead of getting anything accomplished – but now we are back […]
