Prom 2015 ~ Suhr ... Dawson Suhr Style
Dawson's senior prom was this past weekend with a James Bond theme called "A Secret Mission". If you know my son at all then you know that he does not do things the ways of the norm. First of all, he absolutely did not want to go to his senior prom. He had ...

1. I have never enjoyed playing sports, mostly because I never felt like I was good enough to help out the team. All I ever did was compare myself to someone else's abilities. That's why I like running. It's just me and my goals and my personal successes. 2...

Weekly Wrap-up ~ Lots of Little House
As our school year comes to a close, we feel almost in a panic because we know we are coming to the end of our Little House on the Prairie studies. To say that we have enjoyed Prairie Primer would be a vast understatement. The activities have been rich and ...

Taulman Easter 2015
We had a great Easter weekend! I don't know what it is about holiday weekends, but they always seem to get me motivated to do a few things around the house. Rick started purging, organizing and cleaning the basement, and I tackled Eli and Brynne's room. We ...

Sometimes I have to look back at my photos to see what in the heck we did this week. Do you ever have to do that? When I reviewed this past week in photos I saw lots of physical activity. That is certainly the name of the game right now as we usher in the m...

Year-Long Homeschool or Summers Off?

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.
