A couple of weeks ago I got the urge to organize, shared the idea with my husband and the need to move things just couldn’t be helped.  And I didn’t start with arranging things within the same room–oh no!  I completely moved furniture to entirely new rooms.  Our former office is now the living room.  The living room is now the dining room.  And the dining room is now the office.  Confusing, no?   Come see the pictures and you will see what I mean.

Have you ever thought of switching around which room is what? Well I did and the results were amazing! Come check out party 1 of this series--the dining room.

I'm learning this secret more and more as my girls get older--together is better. Great ideas.
 
Many#homeschool moms have mixed ages in their family, and they have to work with preschoolers and middle schoolers at the same time.  +MaryAnne K. has some great tips on how to incorporate differing ages into the same activity.  #kbnmoms
Favorite games and activities for mixed-age groups. Board games, crafts, and active games for all ages. Great for family bonding and family reunions.

Oklahoma is filled with field trips places for kids for every subject and age range.  Need some ideas?  Here are several places we plan to start.  The best part?  You can search by recommended grade level, location, or subject!

I can't believe my daughter is 6!  But she is and now that she is a reader and in BIG church, she is learning the valuable lessons of taking sermon notes.  Last week on her "Were You Listening" cards, she commented afterwards, "Momma, pastor Jeremy hit every single subject.  He did a good job!"  LOL.  I don't know if that's what a sermon is really all about, but how good it is to know she is listening.  

Here is a copy of the little booklet I created for her to pay attention.  Feel free to download these church focus cards on 3x5 cards for your kids to use too!  Great for K-3 students who can read.

Oh wow...what a creative writing resource.

 
Mommas ask me for more creative writing prompts quite often. Today, I'm sharing links to hundreds of them AND so much more.

Sometimes I wish I could crawl in a hole to hide and sometimes I just wish people understood my side of the coin before they judged. Anyone else ever feel like that? What a day....

Christian Home Life | Homeschool
Introduction
Kathy Gossen seeks to encourage others to live for Jesus in the everyday no matter what the occasion.  She is frequently found living out this motto as she organizes her closets for the twentieth time, prepares homeschool lesson plans for two wiggly worms, cooks for a picky eater (aka her husband), or learns how to become a better blogger.  In the end she just prays that her life song sings of love for her Lord, and she hopes to encourage others along the way in her writings on Cornerstone Confessions.  

Kathy also serves as the Executive Director and non-profit founder of Central Oklahoma Homeschool Choirs, a 5-choir choral program providing a quality choral education to over 170 area homeschool students ages 5-18.  As ED of COHC, she is also the coordinator of the Oklahoma Homeschool Choral Fest, a solo and ensemble and large group choral event for all Oklahoma homeschool students ages 8-18 led under the direction of a nationally known clinician.
