Carnival of Homeschooling

This week I am hosting the 442nd Carnival of Homeschooling! I know summer is in full swing, but I love to take a little bit of time to reorganize, declutter and tidy my school supplies and materials. Here’s an old picture of me from back in 2007. I came across this one the other day. […]

This past weekend was the local Homeschool Prom. Now my elder son has already graduated from High School, but his sweetie has not, so they went to the prom together. The theme this year was the roaring 20’s – sort of a “speakeasy” feel. I took a bunch of photos of them together all gussied […]

Meet Ann Marie

Ann Marie

I want to take a moment and introduce you to this great lady, Ann Marie. I first “met” Ann Marie several years ago, when I came across her blog, Household 6 Diva. At first glance, you might think from a name like “diva” that she’s one of those picture-perfect, too good to be true “women […]

Getting Organized | #Printable Blog Planner

Blog Planning

This time of year, while I am preparing lesson plans and calendars for the coming school year, I work on getting everything in my household organized. Files, paperwork, books, supplies, you name it. But since I am also a blogger, that gives me something else that I need to have organized and a plan for. […]

On our trip from Alaska to Alabama, we had a special event that was going to take place. Upon arriving in Tennessee, we celebrated our elder son’s high school graduation!

In a few short weeks, I’ll have my second homeschool graduate. Holey Socks!!!! Where has time gone?! I mean seriously! We used to have park dates and playground fun.

Fish Seining in the Chena River
