Some Lake Fun
On Saturday the little kids and I decided to go to my parents' lake house for the rest of the weekend. It was a laid back time and very hot! We took a couple of boat rides, did a tad bit of swimming, checked the jugs for big catches, went out to dinner, and...

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.
