Ready or Not . . .

Ready or Not . . .

Ready or not, today is the first day of school.  This year I will have one child in Elementary, one in Middle, and one in High School.  It’s bound to be an adventure!

I always like to have a little something fun sitting on their desk for the first day.  My Paper Pumpkin helped with that yet again!  The July kit came with little baskets to assemble and cute coordinating 3″ cards.Continue reading

Young Entrepreneur Opportunity Year 2

Young Entrepreneur Opportunity Year 2

Micah had the opportunity to sell baked goods as a Young Entrepreneur at the local homeschool expo again this year, and Jaan joined in to sell homemade candies!

Let’s just say my kitchen was VERY busy at the end of last week, and it was rather crazy around here!  Thank you for those who have put up with my mind being a little overwhelmed . . .
