September in photos.  I'm still trying to figure out what my blog is for now-a-days.
Hello, I'm finally back for a monthly update a month late. My husband started the month with two wood working projects.  He made an easel for the white board and  bookends out of redwood to help us get organized for the new...

Dieting for 20 years is a drag!  I am quitting!

Thanks Annie Kate!  I am a little annoyed about the weight gain but I'm getting over it.  I threw out my scale so I don't know how much I've gained but it's probably around 40 pounds and is 5 sizes.  But, I am happier and I do feel better.  I can't believe how much anxiety I was living with.  It took me about a month to decompress and stop worrying about not being worried.

Here is a general plan for teaching SAT essay writing in high school.  I will be putting my junior through essay "bootcamp" this fall to get him ready to ace the SAT.  
In this article, Lee Binz, The HomeScholar discusses why learning quick essay writing skills is very important for your homeschooling teens. Homeschooling parents should ensure that their kids practice regularly in order to write essays quickly.

This is something I want to work on this fall.  My oldest two did well on the SAT, except for the essay.  Here's to writing good quick essays!

Thanks for this.

I blogged again!  Just a photo log but it is something new.
I am attempting to begin regular blogging again.  I thought I'd start with something easy like a photo update.  Back to May: The weather started warming up and we arrived at the park while the sprinklers were on so the childr...
