Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday y’all!  Please forgive the absence/lack of Thankful Thursday posts around these parts.  Somehow Thursdays have become my busiest days.  Also, homeschooling JJ has completely taken over my life and free time, but I’m NOT complaining.   I had a few unfinished Thankful Thursday posts from last month just chilling in my Drafts folder.  Today I woke up determined to get this week’s post published and not dumped in Drafts with the others.  So let’s  ...

Adventures In Homeschooling

  This Summer we really enjoyed spending long days at the pool and our month long vacation at my mom’s in July.  However, as the start of the school year got closer and closer, I couldn’t help the waves of anxiety that washed over me.  I had a choice to make.  For a while I had been praying as well as weighing the pros and cons of whether to enroll JJ into traditional school with his sister or to put on my teachers hat and teach him at home (homeschool).

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday!  I never get tired of typing or saying this out loud.  I don’t know about you but I get excited when Thursdays roll around.  Reflecting on all of our victories, no matter how small or big, from the week gives me a weekly reminder of how blessed my family and I truly are.  Thankful Thursdays are my reminder that I’m not doing this thing called life on my own.  There’s a greater and higher power at work in my life and the lives of my loved ones.

Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday everyone!  Can you believe it’s August already?!  Dear Summer Break, where did you go?  Please come back because I’m not ready for the school year to start yet.  I mean I’m positively prepared for the first day and all, but I just want a little bit more time of sleeping in and being able to jet off to my mom’s on a whim.   Seriously though can we push school back to like the middle of September? Enough lamenting over the end of Summer Break,  ...

How To Be Positively Prepared For Back To School

I have received information and materials from JOHNSON & JOHNSON CONSUMER, Inc., McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division, LLC.  The opinions stated are my own.  This is a sponsored post.  #PositivelyPrepared #BacktoSchool #CollectiveBias Back to school season is upon us.  The last few days of summer vacation are flying by.  For some of us getting our children ready to head back into the classroom can be both a cause for celebration and a bit of a headache.  No worries moms (and dads), I  ...

Thankful Thursday

  Oh July, where have your days gone?  It’s hard to believe that we have slightly over a week left in this month.  Summer Break came to a close quicker than I expected.  I feel like I’m in the minority, but I’m NOT looking forward to school starting back up.  If anything all the recent tragedies have made me cherish this uninterrupted time with my family even more.  So much so that I think we’re going to give homeschooling a try, but that’s another post  ...
