Busy Summer Days

Paleo-ish Cake

I thought I would do random with you. It’s been a while since we’ve just sat down to chat at the computer – you with your cup of tea, me with my touch of crazy. So what’s been going on with us since the last post in July? Let’s see… a glance back over the […]

Are Texas Home School Coalition Conventions for You?

It’s summer. Well, at least for most of us. We have maybe two weeks left of tidying up and tying loose homeschool ends and we are DONE with 11th grade for my teens, Kindergarten for the 6 year old, and Preschool for my littlest guy.

I’ve got the summer-time blues. Yep, the end of summer, and the beginning of the school year. I am not dreading the end of 100 degree heat (this Saturday the “feels like” temp was 121 – I kid you not). I do, however, dread the end of extra free time… even though we suffered through […]

I haven’t had a randomized post in quite some time and tonight I’m feeling more random than I have in ages. I thought I would tell you about a strange email I got today from someone wanting me to pack my family up and go to MEXICO. Crazy, right? Photo Credit: Erik Page Photography But […]

I have a notepad full of little partial posts on my iPhone, a mental calendar of things I’ve been wanting to write about, post-it sticky notes with ideas… and I even write posts as I go about my day (in my head, and then promptly forget them when I go to sleep). In the past […]
