That Moment

You know that moment when you know you want to blog but you can't think of anything to blog about?

You know that moment when you feel really inspired, but you are too lazy to do it?

The moment when you realize that was not the best thing to say, but you already said it.

The moment where you feel like you could do anything.

That moment when you have all your prioritys taken care of, it is wonderful.

What are some of your moments?

Life of a Homeschooler 3

17. Being a homeschooler does not mean we don't have to do actual home work. We just have to do it with the rest of our school...

18. Being a homeschooler does not mean you have to do school at home, unfortunatly you can take it anywhere! No doctors apointment goes without a school book (unless you are sick.... then your mom might let you slack...)

19. Being a homeschooler you have to finish your whole school book you can't just quit because you put in the right amount of days.

20. Being a homeschooler you eather have a good lunch day or a bad lunch day, Good: Mom makes lunch Bad: You make lunch.

21. Dress code is awesome. Nuf said.

22. You made do school with your pet if you are a homeschooler.

23. Your Mom may talk all summer about school, when that is the last thing you want to talk about!

24. When you are a homeschooler you may feel a little different, at least with our family we are pretty strict with how modest we are and we don't watch Disney Channel (those are just a few).
25. When Dad is home if feels like the weekend, even when it is not, that causes problems! (especially when you dad has knee surgery and has to stay home for a few months.... long story!)

What about you? What is your life as a homeschooler write? If you want to do a post like this just put a link to my blog and don't forget to tell me! I want to read it :)

Life of a Homeschooler 2

*picture of my dog when we rescued him*

11. When you are a homeschooler you may base your clothing around when you are going out.

12. When you are a homeschoold you can count errand as a "field trip" 

13.When you are a homeschooler Birthday's are also counted as a Holiday.

14. When you are a homeschooler Music might count as a part of school... :P 

15. My Mom says she knows when we start arguing with each other a lot (my sister's and I) it is time to start school (It does help....)

16. If you are a homeschooler you most likely read... A LOT...

What are some of your "homeschooler things"?

The Life of a Homeschooler

*Hey Girls! This is a series I am going to start! The Life of a Homeschooler! If you like please mention it in a blog post or something to promote my blog! I would love it! Also my one year Blogaversary is coming soon SO I am going to try to promote that and try to get 200 followers for it! Yeah I am shooting BIG! (It's in November) SO PLEASE HELP!*

Living the Life of a Homeschooler Facts

1. Just because you get out early does not mean you did less school, in fact you might have done more than one days work, you just did it... quicker...

2. Just because you are a homeschooler does not mean you get to sleep in late, in fact some times you have to wake up at 5:00 :(

3. Being a homeschooler you get to stop and do chores in the middle of school... it is not that fun...

4. Being a Homeschooler you may have to take a bunch of extra classes because you Mom thought they would be good for you.

5. When you get to me in High School when you are a Homeschooler you may school until 5:00+ (PM)

6. When you are a homeschooler you can do school in your pj's (it is quite epical) 

7. When you are a homeschooler you get to be closer to your siblings (it gets hard sometimes but in all it is good besides if you can't live with your family you can't live with anyone!)

8. When you are a Christian homeschooler you don't have to worry about religion, some of your school books may be based around Creation vs Evolution and about God, and some of the best help you will get is praying before a big test or any school!

9. When you are a homeschooler you do not have reses you may eat and watch a 30 min. tv show instead.

10. When you are a homeschooler you usually get this expression when you tell someone.

Kid: Oh cool. 
Adult: I could never do that. 


Hope you enjoyed it!!!

Home Comeing 2012

Today was our Churches home coming. This is what we did!

Well I started by getting ready for church and the got to my hair (the night before I put curlers in it so it would be curly) so I took my curlers out and I had ringlets. NOT CURLS ringlets. OH MY GOODNESS! So I freaked out a little bit and then I put it in a very very curly/ringlet pony tail.

So then we headed to Church.

I spent time with my friend and I was able to be in the choir! It was so fun. We normally don't have a quire... Our church is about 30-40 people so there were about 100 people there so that was fun.

But we had service and our last preacher preached. Then we had a really big meal (SO FULL ;) Then after every one had as much food as they could hold we went to sing. My friend Tori and I sang *Loved by my King (Amazing Love) TRINKA I haadddd to think about you! *

So I had a really fun day! Did y'all have homecoming? Have you ever been to a Homecoming?

Good to be back!!!

 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. ...

Hey Girls! Today I am reviewing this picture my Lilly Caroline!

Isn't it beautiful?

She was great to work with! She volunteered and let me pick it out!

It came quickly in the mail in a nicely addressed envelope. 

The picture is a simple but elegant picture. The bocah in the picture makes it even cuter! It is a simple picture so it goes with alot! Easy to find a nice frame for and goes with lots of colored rooms!

Thanks SOO much Lilly for letting me do this review! 

Check out her

RIP Georgie Grace D.

If y'all read the post 2 posts down about vacation y'all will know that I got a little Betta fish. Her name was Georgie Grace, she was blog with dark blue stripes (she was SO pretty!!) Today I had her for one week, but on this week anniversary she was killed. My little sisters fish (Abby) killed her :( I just hope she didn't suffer long. So I got home and Mama Daddy and My big sister were crowded around the fish tank. I was greeted by "Emma, we have bad news". So I put her in a little box and carried her out to one of my favorite trees to sit in (especially when I am sad) and we barried her there.


Georgie Grace D.
about a year old

You Were Loved
