Please excuse my absence

Wow, I've been busy in productive ways! What a feeling! Usually I'm "busy" checking e-mail, facebook, etc. Now that I've made the decision to homeschool my son, I've been busy being a better mother and housewife. Who knew? 

I guess I want to be a good example to my son. I also have to keep an eye on him and keep him busy, so that doesn't leave me much time to myself. Although I am giving him some early Christmas vacation/time off from "school". That doesn't mean he gets to play video games all day. No-sir-ee. I've been teaching him to do laundry and we've been working on organizing his room. We went to the library the other day and I let him pick out some books. I also picked out a book for us to read together and some educational dvds for when "school" starts back up for him.

He's been having trouble sleeping the last 2 weeks or so. Sometimes my heart just breaks for him. This morning he was yelling out in his sleep, having a crazy nightmare. I'm not sure how to help him with that. I've been enjoying spending time with him.  I'm trying to find learning experiences in everything we do in our daily lives. There is hope for the future and there is peace in my heart.


  1. How old is your son?
    Are you in high school subjects yet? just curious! WAY 2 go Jill!
    I hope your son stops his nightmares and you both succeed in this new teaching thing..KEWL!

  2. THat's amazing!!! More power to the moms, and ladies that can homeschool their kids. I think that's great. Good luck with that endeavor!! And I'm glad that you are enjoying being with him. Because I swear these days go by so FAST!!!


Thank you for your comments! I'll try to return the favor.
