Springing Into April

Depending on where you live, Spring has been a little slow to appear this year.  I know that the past couple of weeks have brought snow storms in a lot of areas of the US.  Strangely, where I live in Wyoming, it has been rather nice.  We’ve had a few rain showers, but many days […]

Homeschool Methods Linkup-Unschooling

The rebel. The independent. The freethinker. Unschooling is the misjudged member of the homeschool faction. The one protesting cursive and workbooks, chanting “Down with tests. Down with quizzes.” Life is education. The world is their classroom. Unschooling has a raised brow reputation. I admit, when I started homeschooling 6 years ago, I was scheduled and […]

Homeschool Methods Linkup–Preschool

If you have a Preschooler in your life, you know how much fun they are. You also know they are a handful at times. Add in homeschooling older kids and you have a recipe for, well, busy times! I remember the days when I had two Preschoolers; my oldest are only 18 months apart, so […]

Spitting Mad

Spitting Mad

Sometimes I get so mad at homeschoolers I could just spit. To clarify, it’s not all homeschoolers…it’s just the over-achieving kind, the kind that LOVE the school part of homeschooling. It’s not that they’re so bad or anything, it’s just that they don’t know when to stop. They say things like, “My kids do math […]

Second Match Made in Heaven Part 2 – Training

Nala is here! On a rainy, cold Monday afternoon in the middle of February, the van marked Southeastern Guide Dogs finally pulled into my driveway again. This time carrying a special cargo for me. The excitement was so intense and the pure joy was so overwhelming that my face couldn’t hide the glee despite a […]

Still

Still. I can’t believe we are still here. I’ve had that thought many times recently. We got married nearly ten years ago while HubbaHubba was still a student at the local Bible college where we met. We had plans then. He was going to finish his schooling in the next two years, then we would […]

Someone Else’s Trash Could Be Your Treasure

The month of April brings many things including baseball, spring, warmer weather and, best of all, the beginning of garage sales and bargain shopping. I shop at thrift stores and consignment stores year round, and I really enjoy garage sale season. April through late September is typically the garage sale season. Garage sales, thrift stores […]

APRIL FRESH LAUNDRY

Warm sunshine and the smell of fresh Spring air always make me think of hanging out laundry. There is *nothing* better than clothes hung out to dry, especially sheets! So here are two recipes that a lot of people have asked me about over the years, so I thought I’d share them. Actually, the Laundry […]

Just a Little Flat

I’ve mentioned before that I go to the World’s Best Co-op Evah…did I happen to mention Biology Dissection Lab? Well, it is co-op season again and we are midterm into this session of co-op. One of the classes I have done before, and am teaching again now, is a Flat Stanley Class. There are so […]

Vegetable Gardening

I LOVE to grow my own veggies! We have had a garden for about 6 years now and just expanded it last year. One of the reasons I love it is because it brings back memories of my childhood. We lived on about an acre of land in the city. Not a large lot but […]

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 […]
