Where have I been?

Wow! Right now we are on another whirlwind trip. Well the kids and I are. We've decided to head North to Ohio to visit friends and family but we took quite a detour to get here. I'll post all about it later, but I left my computer in the camper with my husband and am using my children's laptop now, so it won't be much of a surprise that I won't be on too frequently this week.

I had planned to upload some of the awesome pictures that we took today and set up a couple posts, until I discovered that I actually left my USB port for my camera at home too! I guess you'll just have to stop back and SEE what we've been doing next week. I'll give you a hint I bought an ugly cup that I love and we saw the Eiffel Paris! Any ideas?

I'd say so far we've had an incredible trip. Other than the fact that the Mapquest directions I printed routed us through every small town between Alabama and Kentucky. I finally decided to stop for the night because I just DID NOT want to drive one more mile and it was simply too fatiguing for me to concentrate on driving 45 mph! Ha! You may think I'm joking, but I'm not! I'll pay extra special attention to those directions next time.

I do have an exciting announcement though. Well, I don't know how excited you will be, but I'm excited and just can't keep it to myself any longer! Okay, here goes...I will be writing a weekly column at the Company Porch for the Homeschool Blogger. I'd love it if you'd stop by and visit me once in awhile there too! I also need a name for my column and I'm just not feeling creative this week. Can anyone help? I'll be writing about our relaxed way of homeschooling. Here's a bit of this week's post:

Our Journey to Relaxed Homeschooling

I didn’t always call myself a relaxed homeschooler. When I began homeschooling my three precious children 11 years ago, I started on a different path. I had very specific plans. My children were going to be advanced beyond their years. They were going to read at 5th or 6th grade level by first grade. They were going to begin Latin by second. I was going to show everyone what homeschooling could do by creating super progeny.

Wanna read more? You can do that here.

Have a great week! I'm hoping to post a Field Trip Friday if I can borrow the internet from a friend so look for it late tomorrow night or early Friday. I'll be back to my regular post schedules next week! Blessings!


  1. Have a safe trip, can't wait to hear about all the fun you are having!

  2. I went over to The Front Porch and to read your article. Very good and oh so true for lots of families. I have only been homeschooling for 4 years but we started out the very same way and have evolved mostly to a relaxed Charlotte Mason way of life. Especially this year with my parents being sick, I have learned that it is okay to take days off and just make them up elsewhere or let her unschool for that day and count it as school. Thanks for letting me know there are others out there that do the same thing.

  3. hey, just stumbled upon your blog and just wanted to say how cool it is that you all are traveling and having soo much fun! oh and I am in Alabama so you might have passed right by me, we live in a small town in Alabama! :-)


I love hearing what you think! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Blessings!:)
