I am a SAHM of three children..15,13 and 12. I started home schooling them five years ago, and we all love it so much. I wish we would have made the change sooner. I am an Occupational Therapist but am not practicing at this time. I quit to stay home with my children. I did some contract work when the kids were all in school and enjoyed it, but I do not miss it. I feel like this is my calling at the time. I am so lucky to have Jeff. He is a wonderful husband and very supportive of our choice to homeschool. I am so blessed.

I will attempt to do so by hitting the highlights for each season, starting with spring 2012
I have always made a big deal out of holidays....most any holiday. I decorate our table and, when the kids were little, would play games and do crafts specific to that day. Even though my kids are teenagers now, I still try to make every holiday special for them.

Some hide their stories away behind thick walls of normalcy and misconceptions, while others carry theirs on proud shoulders, expecting people to read them and drop pity and favor into the charity hats that they carry, always before them, as if the world owes them for the pain they have endured.
Weight-heavy enough to weigh a person down or to propel him forward as he stumbles through life burdened with pages that can never be rewritten, much less erased. There is no paper thick enough to mask the words that lie on the pages beneath it; pages weakened by years of flipping back and forth. There are not enough words or ink dark enough to hide the story that shows through, obscuring what lies on the surface.
Even before I was born, my story contained chapters.....

This year, we also drove around to look at Christmas lights. We had a fun time naming the different houses...lots of laughs and some very creative names!
Each Christmas before going to my dad's for Christmas, we take pictures and let the kids open one of their gifts from us.
