Let’s Get Personal

I admit, I’ve let blogging take a back seat. I haven’t written anything personal since February. It’s been a pretty busy summer with Travel Baseball, travel for us adults, and just life in general. I can’t believe the summer is almost over. Our school district went back to school yesterday. I still have a little […]

Getting in a Groove

Ever since I found out I was pregnant with #5 about 14 weeks ago I completely lost all focus in life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally excited about the baby and have been since we found out. I just can’t focus on anything besides whatever is immediately going on. I haven’t been able to […]

Writer’s Block

So, every time I open a new, blank post, I sit and stare, then I go to Facebook for 20 minutes, then I go to my email, then back to Facebook. I pop over here and look at the blank screen again… Then a kid wants me. Next thing I know, my laptop has been […]

What’s Your Love Language?

My husband and I were talking tonight about someone I’ve met recently at homeschool co-op and I said that I think her love language is Acts of Service. He had no idea what I was talking about so I pulled out “Dr.Google” and looked it up so I could explain it to him. I read […]

Why We Chose to Homeschool

Where do I start? Homeschooling was something I’d thought about since we found out we were pregnant with Buddy. Life kept changing and I was never “ready” to take the leap, though. Monkey joined school two years ago in Kindergarten and she just kept struggling. Her class had a few special needs kids in it […]
