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 [...]

Nature coming out my ears

I’m not really an outdoors person.  During summer, I greatly prefer the air-conditioned indoors.  I have had a few interesting encounters with the natural world in the last couple of days, though. Sunday night when we came home from church, there was an interesting addition to the neighborhood.  A hawk had landed in our next [...]

I’m trying not to lose my momentum with my project completion here. I’m having many discussions with myself about whether it is better to seed and fertilize before or after the predicted rain over the next several days, if I should even be doing this in the spring rather than the fall, if I can [...]

My husband took Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off from work. Usually we make plans for these times and then get very little, if anything, done. Well, not this time! I don’t think I’ve had such a continuous stretch of manual labor…ever. Here is what we’ve accomplished over the last few days, in no particular [...]

Africa, Charlotte’s Web and a Ladybug

Is that title random enough? We have ‘officially’ finished the legally required number of school days for this year.  Since we school year-round, this isn’t really that big of a deal, but for some reason I’m feeling a sense of accomplishment.  We’ve also just finished my older son’s grammar book, the math book we were [...]

We no longer hold the title of “Last Christian Homeschooling Family With Children Over the Age of Six Who Have Not Read or Seen The Chronicles of Narnia.” That’s LCHFWCOASWHNRSTCON, for short. Please, hold your applause and do not faint. It is true. We have owned the movie probably since it first came out on [...]
