About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

I would like to recommend the book Busy but Balanced by Mimi Doe to all of you.  I checked it out from the library about a year ago and was compelled to order a copy for myself.  It is a thoughtful, wonderful book that has great ideas for family time along with book and recipe suggestions (among other things) for each month of the year.  This is one idea that I highlighted in July:

"Select one state a week and focus your reading, games, songs, and words on that state.  Scholastic's The Kids Book of the Fifty Great States should prove helpful.  If this week is Mississippi week, how about cooking up some shrimp scampi and learning about gators and kudzu?"

I thought this would be so much fun to add to our home schooling schedule!  Each month has lots of things to think about and try out.  Let me know what you think.

I have such a hard time picking one thing and sticking with it, sigh....

That sounds like a book I need to read.
