Homeschool Swim Lessons in Austin

British Swim School Austin

Hey out there… Spring has sprung! It is hard to stay inside near the computer when it is in the 70’s outside and the garden needs weeding, trees need trimming, fence needs building, and plants need planting. We’ve been spending an amazing amount of time in the sunshine – and even taking advantages of the […]

Texas GOP State Convention : How to Get Involved and Make a Difference

Ken Paxton and his Pistol Packin' Mama

Part of our hands-on government class this year for homeschool was to be politically active and actually do our part as far as we were able to instead of just going to a voting poll and checking a box. I’m not sure how many public school seniors out there were state delegates this year, but […]

What a Homeschool Mama Needs : A Reminder to BREATHE

Just Breathe

Sometimes I hold my breath. Maybe it’s my reaction to stress that I’ve built up over the years so I could keep moving and not think about it. Maybe it’s holding on to life so hard that my soul’s knuckles are bare and my body doesn’t breathe out of respect. When I’m not breathing, though… […]

THSC Arlington – The Newest Texas Homeschool Book Fair and Conference

THSC Vendor Hall

I used to love going to the Arlington Homeschool Book fair back in the day. I have been many times. I’ve been taking photos for THSC in the Woodlands for quite a few years now, so I have only been to Arlington once or twice in the past five years, though. I was excited when […]

My First Wedding Photography Shoot… I Think I’m in Love.

Grandparents' Kiss by Sprittibee, Austin Wedding Photographer

I said I would never shoot a wedding. As much as I love portraits and event photography and art shots, I was listening to that little voice of fear about how stressful a one-time event like a wedding would be. The voices we listen to can be intimidating. Can I hack it under pressure? I […]
