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!

How to have a H.E.A.R.T for your Kids


   I am really excited/nervous about the new school year!  I know it is only July, but this year I have been selected to be a part of The Old Schoolhouse Crew!  Throughout the year, books, games, etc. will be sent to me and I will review them.  Even if you don't home school, the information will be valuable to you and your family.  My first review will be on the book by Apologia (love them!) "How to Have a H.E.A.R.T for Your Kids".  It focuses on the relationship you have with your children- with a biblical view.  I feel that in the rush of activities and life I have (sadly) lost touch with the real reason I started homeschooling.  I wanted more quality time with my girls.  This book will be a lovely start in focusing on what really matters to all of us.  Our children.

Can't wait to hear what you think! I was hoping to get that one too, but it was only open for U.S. residents. If it's good, I'll be tempted to buy it. . . along with so many other Apologia books! ;)

I'm reviewing this one as well and am very excited! Who can't learn a thing or two about relationships through biblical example :-). I look forward to your review!

Congratulations .... what an honor for you. My children are adults now, but I still try to have some guality time with them. I think that's why I scrapbook. I fall deeper in love with them as I go back in time and remember those special moments in theirs and my life. Can't wait to hear from you.
