Ideas anyone...

Let me start by saying I really should try to blog a little more regular but I have gotten a little lax in that area. Not because of a shortage of topics but due to insane pace of my life and well somethings I am just not ready to share. I am going to try to do better because I really do love to blog no matter the topic it is a little like therapy for me:) Anyway...

I have decided to take the summer off from my teaching duties at our church. I have been teaching children for almost 3 years now and love every minute of it. But really needed some time for rest, relaxation, regrouping and just being with my family...and a little time focused on making sure that I am feed spiritually. Also, I have TONS of planning to do since I will be homeschooling next year. And while all of my curriculum has been chosen I have still have some kinks to work out.

Since I will have a little free time on my hands this summer I was wondering if you of you had any suggestions on inexpensive or even better free activities I can do with my kids. Swimming is a given however since we are on the swim team:) Please please share your ideas. I had planned on going on a couple trips but I am not sure budget will allow. So any ideas are always welcome.

If I have any home school mom readers I was wondering do you have a "school room" or no? If no, where do you school at? Just wondering what works for others. We have a 4th bedroom that belongs to Cooper was his nursery then my sewing room and when him sharing with Duece didn't work out I moved him back into his room...I digress...He never sleeps in there because someone ( all fingers pointing to Michael) has started letting Cooper sleep with us! So I have pondered the idea of making it a craft/sewing/ computer/ school room! Ideas anyone!!!

  1. The Boaz Public Library is having an awesome summer reading program. We participated last year and loved it. Here's a link with more info:

    Also, the Guntersville library usually always has a great program.

    You should also check out the Second Saturday event in Boaz from 5-8 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month as well as first Friday on Broad Street in Gadsden. Always lots of fun things at those.
