Pass the smelling salts, it’s true. I found this great household management site recently and it’s been working really well for us. I even wrote a ‘tip’ for my friend’s newsletter, Homeschooler’s Notebook. Since it’s already written up, I thought I might as well share it here on my blog, too!   I have recently [...]

I’m dying here, people.  My week started off with a crazy bang and I’m still dealing with the consequences. You see, my Facebook account got hacked. You’ve maybe heard about these hackers who break into people’s Facebook accounts and pretend to be them, asking other Facebook friends for money. That’s the one I got hit [...]

So…I’m trying to come out of my shell and say ‘yes’ to things I would normally run away from.  It’s been an interesting experiment that has worked out well for the most part. I’m being more social and learning to be more comfortable around people I don’t know all that well.  It’s kind of a [...]

Lego Lego Lego!

Oh my goodness, our life was taken over by Lego! This year, both boys were on the Lego team for First Lego League. It seemed like our younger son was already on the team last year since he was at all the meetings, but this year it was official. Once again, they advanced to state [...]

The pitter pat of little…paws?

Do rabbits have paws or feet?  I think paws. Anyway, as promised, I am happy to introduce you to the happy tenant of the rabbit hutch I built.  Meet Smudge: Isn’t he cute?!?  I should probably explain his name.  Or maybe I should just show you. See the smudge on his side/back?  He has one [...]
