I got a bag with tiny chocolate bars, Gobstoppers and little cardboard boxes of Nerds inside. These seemed perfect for putting in a big bowl on the coffee table so everyone could just grab a piece when they felt like it.
I wanted to share some extra love and encouragement for all you moms out there who are trying to get used to the fall schedule changes. If you’re hanging by a thread, you’re not alone!
I am so happy to be back to normal life this morning! We are starting school today and it’s been a full month of doing nothing but entertaining ourselves and not cleaning the house.
Are you as overwhelmed as I am by all of the activity surrounding this time of year? School starting, summer ending, new afternoon and evening schedules and so many new things popping up on the calendar!
The boys are so excited about this trip that it’s been non-stop Universal talk for weeks. Since April we have had a countdown display on the school white board and every morning they change the number.
As you may know, we homeschool our kids. Yep, all 9 of ’em. They have never been to any kind of traditional school and at this point 5 of them are homeschool graduates.
In an effort to stay cool I have been equipping myself with cooling gadgets and devices. I like gadgets and new technology. I can’t always figure them out, but I still like them.
Yes, we have gotten into the new craze…Pokémon Go. Before you throw stones and tell me how it was started with evil intent and Christians shouldn’t be spending time on such terrible things, let me fill you in.
I have been keeping stocked up on my beloved Sonic ice. It’s such a help to keep me cool. I buy bags of it and put them in my freezer so I have it on hand at all times.
I’ve got a perfect oily recipe for those days when the kids are whiny and complaining that all moms need!
