Happy 21st Birthday

I can't believe that my little angel would be 21 now. Time passes so fast and yet it feels like yesterday.

I found the perfect quote on grief, it's been a long time but this says exactly how I feel.



Happy Birthday

B is for Boo - Blogging through the alphabet

Today I walked past Boo's desk and found a cute note she had written to herself.
I'm not sure where she found it but she obviously liked it enough to write it down.

Sometimes you just need to take a few a moments to refill your cup! This definitely happened to me this week.

SchoolhouseTeachers.com Review and Special Offer

High-quality, Self-paced, Online Homeschool Resources {SchoolhouseTeachers.com}

I have been a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew for quite a few years now. It's a main part of my homeschooling life and I love it. One of the resources that I use every year for our homeschool is the yearly membership for SchoolhouseTeachers.com I really love this website and although it wasn't mandatory for me to write a review on it I knew that I absolutely had to!

SchoolhouseTeachers.com has just got an incredible face lift! It is fun and bright and exciting to look around. So of course I had to go and check out all their new content. Jam and Boo have access to my password for the site and Boo had just finished her History course and was on there looking for something new. One of the great things about this website is that you pay one subscription fee and everyone in the family can use it - not matter the ages there is something for everyone.

The website itself is really easy to maneuver. You can click on subjects and search that way or you can click on grade and see all the available courses that way. So when I looked I clicked on History and then High School level. This was how Boo found her current course too.

My kids love watching documentarys and learning about new things. Even Captain is a very visual learner. He loves to watch educational shows and is excellent about recalling a ton of facts afterwards that everyone else has forgotten. I was really interested with a new course on the website linked to the American History - Drive Thru History


Boo was super excited to have a program that includes 12 fun videos, worksheets and essay question topics all ready to go! This is a very special class and right now it's only going to be available until July 2017 due to licensing!

 Drive Thru History


As well as this new history offering I have been looking at some of the other amazing teacher helps available there.

You can find out scope and season - all of the areas in blue are clickable and take you straight to where you want to go -


or you can use the free planners or custom scheduler to make your day run smoother -


There are so many choices on this website whether you need help teaching the three times tables (yes a sore point with me this week) or creative writing. Whether you want to pick my subject or have new ideas for unit studies. There is so much available right there at your finger tips!

I like to search on Schoolhouse Teachers for new ideas. It keeps me focused on school topics or the grade that I'm interested in but still helps me come up with work that is in a great format. I have found a great map course that I am going to be working on with Captain soon. It saves me so much time because everything is in one place and I don't have to try and put units together. He loves the fact there is a printable certificate to go in his folder when he's done so give him a sense of accomplishment!


I wasn't required to write this review. I really think this is an excellent resource at a great price. If you join before the 15th you can take advantage of the special price. There are over 300+ classes and tutorials. Use code CHRISTMAS for $9.95 a month or CHRISTMASYEAR for $90 for the WHOLE YEAR.

New Word of the Year 'Enjoy'

If you read my last post you will know that I was very sick over New Year. I realized at that time how important it is to enjoy everything and every season of life. I'm not saying we will like it but we need to be able to enjoy it.

This year will bring many new experiences. Some good and some not so. However, I want to focus on enjoying the now. Not thinking I'll be happen when...if we spend our life looking for something in the future to be happy we are wishing our life away. I have spend periods of my life feeling like this and I have realized that I don't need to wait. We need to be happy with where we are, what we are doing, and the now.

I was sat on New Year's Day wrapped up in a blanket with my box of tissues next to Boo. We played Mastermind, Orthello, and quite a few rounds of Stack the States. Was is a crazy New Year with no parties or friends or even a Midnight countdown - Yes but did I enjoy the time - of course.

So this is my goal and 'word' for 2017 to enjoy the moment, even when it's hard. To look for the good in what we are going through. To me that's pretty inspiring!

Happy New Year

I nearly made it through 2016 without being sick once. Until Friday I got hit big time. So for the first time in a long time I didn't stay up to ring in the new year. In fact we cheated and watched the fireworks in London online - about 6 hours early.

It looks like 2017 will be an interesting one. We start the New Year off by getting a third driver! I'm nervous but excited. Driving test sometime this week! So many other things on the horizon but my main goal is to enjoy the moment and not dwell on things we can't change.

So my word for 2017 is to "enjoy". I don't want to stress about things I can't change just enjoy every moment as it happens.

So happy New Year, I'm going to try and enjoy today - even though we are starting the new year out with a sick day.
