School’s Out! Or Is It?

For many of us, the month of June starts our break for the summer.  We end one school year and spend a lot of time prepping for the next.  For others, they continue to school year round, so they don’t take much of a break at all.  Or perhaps they break during another part of […]

This Beautiful Life

Seasons of Busyness

This has been the YEAR OF WAY TOO BUSY! I started this school year with three part time jobs and two extra children (not to mention Orchestra, Band & Choir, Speech Club, Co-op, Bible Study and AWANA).   I woke up tired and went to bed even more tired. We were getting hardly ANY school work […]

Stretch Your Burger Buck

With the cost of everything soaring these days, it’s always nice to save money anywhere we can. Usually the food budget is one of the first to be slashed as we try to economize just to make ends meet. Sometimes that can seem like you may have to eat a bland diet of macaroni and […]

Schooling Year Round

What do you think of when you think of May or June? How about July or August? When I think of May and June I think of pools opening, taking the boat out on the lake, planting the gardens, and chasing fireflies. When I think of July and August, I think of Fourth of July […]

I’ve Got Nothing

I am supposed to write to you once a month and encourage and inspire you by my example. Except for one little fact…. this month…..I have got nothing. All the ideas that I considered turned into pressure. Pressure for me. Pressure for you. School stuff. Planning stuff. Organizing stuff. Summer field trips. Ugg. I just […]

Just Breathe

I sat in the exam room, waiting patiently for the doctor to return with the results of my EKG. I reflected on the long night that I’d just endured. It’s amazing how something so natural like, oh say, breathing for example, can suddenly without warning become such a struggle.   The air seemed to have turned […]

Scavenger Hunts

Ah, June. School is out. The weather is warmer (at least usually it is where I live). It is a time of longer daylight and family activities and outings. Scavenger hunts are always fun to do with kids. There are quite a few sheets that you can find online with a simple search, or you […]

3 Things We Always Do on Summer Vacation

Summer is almost here and for most people that means vacation. Not for us, summer means some other fun activities that we normally don’t get to do. We typically don’t go on vacation during the summer since we go during other times of the year when most schools are in session. So what do we […]

14 Staycation Ideas for Summer

Having fun this summer does not mean you have to spend a lot of money or travel to places far away. Sure, going on long trips is fun but sometimes the funds are just not there to do so. If you are not planning on a long trip but want to keep the kiddos entertained […]

Kids in the Kitchen

Over the years I have tried to involve my children in cooking; but, until recently, I haven’t been very purposeful or successful about it. Like so many moms, I was often impatient and didn’t want to take the extra time which was necessary if they were going to help me. I knew what I was […]

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 […]
