One of the great things about homeschooling is you can take a break whenever you want or need one. This week we are doing just that. Me and my little ones will take a few days this week to visit relatives in my hometown. The kids are excited mainly because they know they are going to get some type of gifts. I’m not too excited because I have to PACK! Traveling with many is not easy.Continue reading “Traveling with Many”
I’m sitting here trying to come up with a topic for this week’s blog post. I’m having so much trouble getting my thoughts together. My body is tired and my mind is completely scattered. It’s been a long day and nothing wants to come up or out. I’m two seconds away from giving up and going to bed. I just figure I can explain myself through email and pray my apologies will be accepted. I say in my head “What do you do when you don’t want to do something?” And a still small voice says to my heart “Do it anyway.”
It’s almost that time again. It’s every football fan’s favorite time of the sports season. Yep, it’s the Superbowl. All games have been played, and it’s down to these final two teams. They get to show off their talents and use their skills to hopefully bring home the coveted trophy and bragging rights for the year.
Whether you are a fan or not, there is one way to get everyone involved in this annual sports event. And that is FOOD! Lol Nothing says Superbowl Sunday like good food, family, and friends.
I just spent this weekend mostly in bed. Sick. No cold or flu, but a migraine. I have had headaches before, but this took me out of commission for two days. I hate not being able to get done all the things I have to do.
After an academic break, sometimes we feel we have to jump back in full speed. We want to get our children and ourselves back on the same schedule. We also want to start rolling at the same pace as we were before our break started.
While those intentions are great, there is no need to stress yourself out just yet. Why not ease your way into this thing called school. Just take your time and flow back into your regular schedule.
Happy New Year! So this is the time of year for resolutions. Now I don’t really like New Year’s resolutions because the idea is to take on a goal that you’re not mentally or physically prepared to accomplish. You’re expected to go from couch potato to workout queen or slob to prince charming overnight. It leads most people to failure (and usually out of lots of money).
Our homeschool will begin a two week break. (Oh the excitement!) I’m using the next two weeks to relax and plan for the next 90 days. I have a daily schedule in place, but I like to plan curriculum, field trips, etc.
It’s almost the end of the year, and you know what? You’ve done great! You have planned your best day and experienced your worse. You have given your all and some days just given up. You have fought a good fight, and you have survived! Remember as we end this year to…
Reflect, Release, Relax.
I just love this time of year. No. Not the lights. No. Not gifts or holiday music. (We don’t celebrate holidays anyway.) It’s a special time for folks who garden. It seems so unusual that the coldest, darkest, and (for some) snowiest time of year would be a good time for gardening. But it is! It’s a time that gets, even I as a novice gardener, so excited. It’s the time that most gardeners begin to receive their coveted seed catalogs and begin to plan next year’s bounty.
So I’ve mentioned this before, but maybe you’ve forgotten that I am a mom of many. Many talents? Yes. Many degrees? Only one. Many children? Oh yea! We have been blessed and given charge of 8 wonderful little people. Our oldest is six and the youngest is 11 months. In the six years between our first and last, we have managed to fit in 2-five year olds, 2-four year olds, and 2-two year olds. You read that right…
