Thank you Everyone!

Many thanks to the people that nominated my little blog for the Home School Blog Awards!
I really enjoy having a place where I can share my experiences and pass on all the wonderful resources I have found or been shown. I love home schooling. Making the decision to do this was the easiest and hardest thing I think I have ever done. When your following God’s will for your life it can often feel that way.
With the holidays arriving I have not been able to add all the wonderful things I wanted to add to this blog but it is progressing little by little. Thanks again to everyone for their love and support!
Happy Voting, and Best Wishes to the other candidates—check them out here!

The Homeschool Blog Awards!!

Hi Everyone!
I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I’m pretty excited… we usually don’t get a lot of school work done on Monday but Sammy was in a particularly good mood all day. We even managed to do a little Pre K with JoJo. No balloon testing or coconut bowling, just your basic addition and some reading.
I want to shamelessly ask my blog readers and fellow bloggers to please click this image and consider nominating me for the “Best New Homeschooling Blog”.

I know, shameless blegging… forgive me 🙂
Other than that 🙂 please check back with me tomorrow, either here or at Too Busy To Clean to see JoJo learn about basic bathroom toilet seat repair…. these pictures just cannot be staged.
