Week in the life {Tuesday, April 25, 2017}

This week as I try to get back into blogging, I am sharing a week in the life.  I originally saw the idea on Instagram shared by some other bloggers and thought it sounded fun.  Plus I figured it would help me focus a bit more on thinking about writing…

Week in the life {Monday, April 24, 2017}

Hello!  It’s been quite some time since I’ve written, and a lot has happened over these few weeks.   I’ve wanted to jump back into blogging for a while now.  And when I saw others sharing their Week in the Life documentation, I thought it…

What I’ve been reading {January 2017}

It’s no secret that I love to read!  And I’m pretty sure that I say this every time I write a book post, but I love to read posts about books.  My main reason for this is to find more books to read!  So I share…

A peek into our week #1

Well, I did again.  I showed up.  I disappeared.  (This makes me want to sing “Oops, I did It Again”.  There’s a song fitting for every occasion, don’t you think? )  Anyway, I’ve let the blog sort of slide away, again…again…

My Words for the New Year

I am a goal setter.  A list maker.  A to-do list crosser offer. Do I finish everything on my list or do I achieve all of my goals? Not really. But for some reason, a list of goals and things to strive for give me focus.  I’m…

Happy New Year! {And where I’ve been for six months}

Woah!  Has it really been six months since (or longer) since I’ve written here on the blog?  Why, yes – yes, it has.  There are a few reasons for the silence these past few months.  So many times I’ve wanted to sit here and dig into…

A gathering of random thoughts {June 27, 2016}

Trying to get back into blogging by gathering my thoughts on this beautiful summer morning: Outside my window:  A sunny morning as the sun begins to illuminate our backyard.  I haven’t seen a dark morning in a while, because even when I wake before 5:30, the sun…

Homeschool year in review {Part 1} Graduation, Options Program, and Daily Scheduling

Many homeschool families are in the process of planning a new school year.  We are too…well, sort of.  I like to take a break from all things homeschool for a few weeks at the end of our school year before I jump into planning for the new school…

What I’ve been reading {April and May}

  The past two months I did something I’ve never really done before.  I walked away from books that I had started.  And not just one or two, but four books!  I’ve always tried to trudge through reading books I’ve started, even if I…

Life lately {May 2016}

Hello y’all!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Life has been crazy for the most part, and I had to back away from a few things, blogging being one of those things, until the dust settled for us.  So here’s the quick…
