Miss me?

I have enjoyed this summer so much! June and July indeed were quite cool, but by August summer temps finally arrived and we have greatly enjoyed them! Not only are we swimming every chance we get, but we've participated in 3 VBS, several GS camps, and library activities. It's been heavenly. Despite all that fun, both girls are looking forward to school starting. I don't know who their mother is, but it certainly isn't me because I have never felt LESS ready for school!

I am still in vacation mode. I don't want to even think about teaching! What's a mom to do when her kids are played out but she's begging for more? I don't know, but I'll fill you in when I've figured it out. In the meantime, I've squeezing every last drop out of summer vacation!

Roller Coastering

One day co-op is on. One day it is off only to find that the next day it is on again.

I'm just tired thinking about all that emotional thinkin' yall.

Really, I just love a good routine. On or off, I know we'll be okay. What I don't like is not knowing.

As of today, it's on, with just only 1 other of the original families. This may work, or it may not. Whatever happens I know God is in control.

Things feel stirred up, mixed around I.E. Ripe for change.

I keep thinking that God must have a greater plan in all of this. In the past every time I have been in a place where things seem uncertain and wide open, something always fills the gap. For the past 4 years that gap filler happened to be co-op. I met a wonderful bunch of like minded women that helped to support me, love me, and carry me through an otherwise difficult period in my life. If God can so specifically answer a prayer like that then surely He will do it again!

From Soap to Nuts?

I love a good giveaway. Of course, I have never actually won any of them that I have entered, but still I try.

Have you ever heard of soap nuts? I started hearing about them last year when I was looking to go no 'poo. Baking soda was just too harsh for my scalp (in any quantity) and I began looking for alternatives.

Soap nuts can be used for all your soapy needs. Laundry, Hair, creative.

Check out Passionate Homemaking's giveaway of a Extreme 18x. Just leave a comment and you may be one of the lucky 20 to get a trial bottle.
