Counting the Days

Ahhhh . . . March. The month that ushers in Spring. How I love thee! You are also that month that reminds me that I’m another year older (though I’ve been “29 and holding” for quite a few years now; so it’s really not so bad). As you read this post, I’m actually in Florida, […]

Grieving from Within the Dark Silence

Death. Grief. At some point, we all face losing someone we love. The process of grieving, especially for those very close to us, is difficult. As I write this, it has only been a week since I lost my father. I have lost people close to me before. It is difficult each time, but this […]

Guess What Pops Up in March?

I love to seek out unique days each month. A new favorite is coming on the second Thursday in March–Popcorn Lovers Day! Who knew there was a day set aside just for those of us who love that warm, fluffy, slightly crunchy stuff? Although a couple of members of my family firmly believe that popcorn […]

I Love….Geography!

I was all set to write this post about “Products I Love” because, as a homeschooler, I’m always wondering what other people LOVE…and I’m always looking for some new review or some new product that is going to make everything “easier.” I thought long and hard.  I did not want to disappoint you with a sad […]

Loving the Hard to Love Child

My second child was a handful from the moment she was conceived. Yes, that’s right, conceived. I was plagued with hyperemesis gravidarum – ending up having to have regular IV fluid at the hospital throughout the pregnancy. Her birth ended with complications that left me bedridden for several weeks. Breast feeding was challenging. The child […]

Caution: Curves Ahead

This week, when I washed the laundry, I had something new to fold—training bras. It was just another reminder that my kids are getting older. I’ve never been down this road before and I can’t see around the bend to see how it’s going to go. I know that each step in raising kids is […]

Winter Boredom Busters

Sometimes winter can seem endless. It’s cold, there may be snow or ice on the ground, and it seems like it gets dark before the afternoon is half over. Everyone is restless and Mom is just trying to make it to bedtime. What to do? These are ideas I have suggested to my children to […]

The Beauty of White Space

As a writer, white space can be unnerving.   Looking at the blank page, or monitor as the case may be, can just make you feel so inadequate. What things do I have to say that can fill this page?   Will my words impact others for the good, or will they even know they’ve read the […]

Budget is NOT a Four Letter Word!

So as I sit to write another article at the beginning of the year, money matters are in the forefront of my mind. I don’t intend to write a year’s worth of money articles, but I did want to talk a little about budgeting, after talking last month about savings. As I shared, my family […]

Climbing the Mountain of Doubt

It’s February again, and seasoned homeschool moms know what that means: it’s burn-out month! I don’t know what it is about February, but it’s the #1 month in which I hear parents say that they want to quit. Maybe it’s the realization that the holidays are over, or that many of us have been stuck […]

Cabin Fever Reducers

When February rolls around, we are in the midst of a full-blown winter here in New York. There are times when the temps are not conducive to playing outdoors for long periods of time, and the “newness” of the toys that the kids got for Christmas is wearing thin. Before you know it, I have […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
