The Dreary Holiday

It’s Columbus Day and we’re going to take a day off homeschooling today. I might just explain to Kamryn why we’re not doing school today and perhaps might even go a step further and teach her who Christopher Columbus was and what he did. Hurricane Nate (isn’t that funny since …

It’s That Time Again

“Autumn is a reminder that though we’ve traveled tough roads on our journey through Life, Beauty is just around the corner. We carry on knowing there is always a place to rest as we Dream about what lies ahead and take comfort in the Light that guides our way.” I do not know who wrote this …

Today Is The First

Today marks the first day of Kamryn’s Co-op season. It’s going to be weird not doing school with her because, apart from holidays and weekends, we have been doing very good and doing school every day. We’re still reading from the Horse and Pony Encyclopedia as well as Ancient Rome. …

Two Years Strong And Still Going

Yesterday marked our two-year anniversary of being married as well as our 8 year anniversary of being together. We met shortly after my mom passed away. Truth be told, it was because of my mom’s death that I even met Nate. That was a very hard time in my life …

Her First Day

We are kid-less for a little while today. Kamryn goes to church with her grandparents every Sunday and, since our anniversary is on Tuesday, we asked if they would also be willing to take Klaire with them so we could go on a much-needed date. We go out to eat …

Going, Non-Stop

It has been a busy month with starting school and figuring what works and what doesn’t work. Unfortunately, my lap top is still not working properly. I need to get a new battery for it even though I ordered a new one not that long ago. We’ve been doing school …

Who’s Pickin’ What?

This year, for my garden, I was a little bit of a procrastinator (lazy!!!!) about getting my veggies planted. I did not plant nearly as many veggies as I wanted, or hoped, to plant. Not only that, but these weeds this year were just horrible!!! One day, I’m weeding and …

I’ve Got A “How To” For You!!

Well, first things first, I’m sorry it’s been a few days since I last posted. My internet has been on the fritz and they finally sent someone out yesterday. It took them quite a while to figure out what was wrong but hopefully now it’s fixed. Now, on to the …

I Cannot Believe It!!

I cannot believe that I made it through my first week (half a week since I started Wednesday) of homeschooling!! It was not bad at all and the schedule I originally made for her only got changed just a little bit. Since she does her Reading Eggs in the morning …

I Took The Leap…

I posted yesterday that school was starting soon and also that I was trying to figure out a schedule and once I voiced it out loud with Nate, it sounded like a pretty good schedule. So I took the leap and decided today was the day! Since Klaire is almost …
