“piles of laundry” 🙂


A washing machine…only one blessing we have, but what a blessing!


I love this list! I’m so happy to find another homeschool blogger out here in the blog-O-sphere. I’m your newest RSS subscriber. 🙂

Blessings to you from Mingle Monday,


I’m stopping by from Monday Mingle. My family is currently going through a rough time, I think I need to sit the kids down & start a list of all our blessings.

Hi! Just saw your comment on my blog (I’m a bit behind!), and I hope you’ll join us for Talkin’ 2sday next week, if you can. Looks like you’ve got thankfulness down pat 🙂 We only asked for two things on our blog hop…should have sent ppl over here so they could get some ideas! Love it!

Well, that laundry room certainly looks familiar.

I like that quote about home schooling on your side bar, that it isn’t school at home.
we don’t home school btw , but I certainly don’t take it lightly that children learn all day.
