Homeschool Service Project: Feeding Austin Area Hungry

Food Pantry Loading

For the past few years, our family has had the privilege of working with the Brighter Days Food Pantry which partners with Austin Area’s Texas Capital Food Bank to feed the hungry in our community. Our pantry is one of the few in our area that offer fresh produce, meat and dairy as well as dry […]

A New Convention on the Block… in Texas!

Thank You to our Military

Apparently, you won’t have to wait until the summer to get your homeschool inspiration on this year. Great Homeschool Conventions is branching out into the Lone Star State in a big way with a new convention debuting in Forth Worth this February (next month).

260 of My Favorite Blog Elevated Photos

Bloggin' Mamas

I’m a homeschool mom… yes – but I’m a photographer and blogger in my “other life” (read: scarce free time). I process life in words and images. Can’t help it.

But there wasn’t time enough. I treasured the weekend up and decided to share it tonight before it was lost. […]

So it will be later this week when the masses of like-minded descend upon The Woodlands, Texas to encourage, recharge, learn, grow, and fellowship together at the Texas Home […]
