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!

Love in a Time of Homeschooling

***Stop by here!  Victoria is having a "Queen for a Day" Giveaway and it is fabulous!***

April Showers may bring May flowers but it feels like it is bringing a flood here instead.
So we spent the weekend inside listening to the thunder and rain.
Snuggled under blankets we read books.
I just started this with my girls.
It is sweet-even for a 13 year old.:)

I am reading this.
One woman's adventure homeschooling her daughter for one year.
Funny and informative.
Her daughter has so much in common with my oldest!
I am taking notes and plan to implement many of her ideas into my teaching.
Very real and entertaining!

Step away from the Easter basket.
Yes, you.
Peanut butter eggs should be against the law.
Don't get me started on Cadbury eggs.
I am avoiding Wal Mart until all the clearance Easter candy is gone.

Check out this giveaway at Katie Evans Photography!  She is giving away an e-book!  What a talented photographer!

Cadbury Eggs are definitely my weakness! Hope your rain has moved out by now...we're supposed to get some in the next few days. HAPPY READING! Enjoy your day, Lori!

The TumTum and Nutmeg book looks great. It looks like one of those lovely old fashioned stories that are fun for any age. Glad the homeschool book is giving you some new ideas. I am enjoying The Hunger Games although I keep dreaming about it which is not good! We have eaten too much chocolate today! Don't want anymore for a long time. Hope the storms are over now. Thinking of you all.
