After the Break is Done

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.

New Year, New Lifestyle

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).

Reflect, Release, Relax.

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.

It’s Never Too Early to Grow

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.

Life of a Mom of Many

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…

Let’s Break!

It’s almost that time. Yes most of us are almost at the 90 day mark of this school year. I’m so excited to be at this pinnacle. Why? I’m excited because after we finish our first 90 days we are taking a break!

A break. You know what that is right? No instruction. No lesson plans. No whining over math or reading. Just a few days of rest and relaxation. Now that’s what I’m talking about!
