Homeschooling and the "S" Word
Socialization. Everybody assumes that if you homeschool your kids that they are unsocialized weirdos who cannot function in the "real" world. What a load of bologna! When I am asked if I am concerned that my children are not receiving enough socialization, ...

Weekly Wrap-up ~ Summer Weeks 7 and 8 and Lake School
As will happen regularly, especially in the summer months, the last three weeks have been crazy and school has had to be adjusted. Two weeks ago was pretty much a bust in regard to formal schooling as I spent a couple of late nights at the hospital with Kyn...

Wednesday Hodgepodge - Part 2
On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your summer so far? Why? (1=eh and 10=best summer ever) I'd give our summer a solid 8, and that's pretty good since summer is my least favorite season. We have had some really great family time and have had a good mix ...

Our Homeschool Work Day
Our first day of fall semester is just a few days away, and with that comes a more scheduled day. As much as I have enjoyed these easy days of summer and summer school, I am ready for more of a schedule. When left to my own devices I can easily wiggle out o...

Story
Introduction
I am a 40ish year old wife and mom who recently moved back to her childhood hometown to simplify her life. I homeschool my two younger children, have one who is a junior in high school, and one who just graduated and is moving on to cosmetology school. I spend my days teaching, blogging, reading, gardening, and getting in an occasional power nap in between cleaning, cooking, and taking care of our four dogs. I am a homebody extraordinaire who loves nothing better than a comfy pair of pjs and an evening glass of wine, or a cup of hot green tea if it's cold.
