Back to the grindstone!

We are very happy to be back doing school! I never would have imagined that I/we would thrive on routine, but we do!! I was up early, had coffee and quiet time, fixed breakfast, and we did a couple hours of school.

My camera is dead, but I'll take some pictures of our day tomorrow.

I am thankfully feeling MUCH better, and have a fair amount of energy. I was needing it! Joel has been so great keeping the kitchen stocked and cooking for us - we would not have survived if he hadn't stepped up and been so great :)

This past weekend was the homeschool convention, and it really boosted me up and got me ready to tackle another year, so that's always a bonus!

I'll hopefully be a much better blogger now that we're back on track! Hope all of you homeschool moms are getting ready for a great year!

So good to hear you are feeling better!! Glad you enjoyed the conference too!

I love routine--can't function without it:-)!

Hope you have a super week--can't wait to read about what you learned/discovered at the conference too.

I was just wondering about how you were feeling. I'm glad you are doing better and that you had a great first day of homeschool!

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. Routines help me focus, too!

Happy back to school!!

We're gearing up for it too - and looking forward to it. I've been planning out a good schedule for MY days, so that I can keep good balance and not get frazzled between schooling, the busy work load that point in the early year, family life, and down time.
