September Writing Prompts

I haven’t had time to do an official post yet, but the September Writing Pompts Calendar is ready and will be at the bottom of the update email that is going out at midnight EST.

No Funschool This Week

Hi Everyone!

There will not be a Funschool post this week. We battled bronchitis all last month, and I am spending the week cooking, cleaning, and catching up on school. It will be back Monday with a big list of Valentine’s Day resources.

I am also working on a long-overdue Homeschool for Free post, so check back.

Happy Homeschooling!


A Public Service Announcement

Hi Everyone!

I recently changed the settings on my feeds to show just a summary of my posts instead of the full thing, because that is what “They” say you should do for optimal blog traffic.

I can’t stand reading snippets of posts and I know you probably don’t like it either.

So I switched it back.

That is all.

Have a great weekend!


Updating the Blog

Hi Everyone!

I will be updating blog posts and switching to self-hosted over the next couple weeks. Those of you who follow me in a reader will probably get re-posts of the updates. On the plus side, they are older posts so you might not have seen them before! :) (Please share with me if you know how I can keep the readers from updating.)

Happy Homeschooling!!

Flipping Back the Calendar


Happy New Year Everyone!!

We are finally over the creeping crud that has ravaged our city.
(Ok, it’s not quite that desperate, but close!)

I have a favor to ask … can y’all just flip your calendars back 3 weeks so I can catch up on everything I missed?

No?? Well, it was worth a try. :)

I have some reviews to share, a household notebook roundup you are gonna love, and some cute printables for your kiddos that I am creating.

In the meantime, feel free to explore these tools while planning your new year:

new blog address

Are We There Yet? is a big girl now & has her own domain! :D

Everything should re-direct & carry on as usual. (I hope!)

How’s It Goin’?

Just popping in to say

Howdy! How’s it goin’?

We started school this week, and it has gone great, but MAN I’m tired!!

I can get up early…it’s the going to bed early that I can’t seem to master.

So how about you? Have you started homeschooling already? Or sending your littles out the door in their cute backpacks with their even-cuter lunch bags?

Seriously? That is one of the things I struggled with when I first started homeschooling –>  I wanted, but couldn’t justify buying, the adorable backpacks  & lunch kits. Oh, and my kids would never win cool ribbons at field day either. How silly is that? (Please tell me you have struggled with  that. :-D)

No matter how you educate your kiddos, I hope you have a blessed school year!

Winner Coming Soon

I will have the giveaway winner posted soon!

We have been battling a tummy bug this week … always fun with a big family.

On the bright side, I think I lost a couple of pounds! :)

Ignore the Mess …

… my blog is just trying on a new Spring outfit  :)

Coming Soon …

It has been slow on this little blog o’mine for the last couple of weeks, but real life has been crazy busy!!

We took a week off for Spring Break and I tackled our scary disorganized garage. During this time, we also hosted an Irish Tea and High Kings sing-along for our Bible study group. A brilliant time was had by all!

Last week was a blur of preparation as I helped organize a HUGE benefit garage sale. It was a wonderful success and we raised $1500!!

I have a couple of posts in the works that might interest you:

~ For Works For Me Wednesday, I will be sharing my tips for pulling off a fundraiser garage sale.

~ I didn’t realize that it had been 2 YEARS!! since my last post on Household Notebook Printables. I updated the list last year, but didn’t re-post.  I am working on a new-and-improved list that you are going to love!!

See You Soon!
