First Day Back

Well I say "first day back," but as a homeschooling family. Sometimes I feel like we never stop schooling, since we are always learning. Once you begin homeschooling, as a teacher you  begin to look at everything as a possible learning opportunity. You just have to be careful not to over do it, and take the fun out of down time. However we are excited to get back to a schedule, & back to FIAR. We have read a lot over the summer and went swimming a lot. During the summer as a family we  read The Boxcar Children 1, 2, 3 & 4, Waiting for Her Isaac, & PollyAnna. When I ask Kaylee which book was her favorite, she said "All of them." I ask her 3 times, I never could get her to choose just one.  I'm so thankful they enjoy hearing the stories.

Excited!


Showing off her work. Great Job!

Something New

Sara Mae over at http://www.likeawarmcupofcoffee/ challenged  her readers to try something new. Actually 12 new things. I haven't got that far yet. (Work in progress).
 So here is my something new. It has been on my heart for while to try blogging again. I have tried it once before but never kept it up. I hope to get all the technical stuff figured out so that I can have a cute blog. Mainly though, there are somethings the Lord has laid on my heart to share. I pray the Lords blessings over this blog and over all future readers.
So I'm going to give blogging my best effort. I'm going to try to link up to Sara Mae's blog. Sara Mae please forgive me if I don't do it right. I'm still learning.
Also trying to figure out this template design stuff. I have not got that part figured out yet. So if you see any stange looking things on this blog it's most likely that I'm still trying to figure it out. Please feel free to leave lots of helpful tips.
