I know this is probably strange but what is and how do you tag someone? I came across a contest and you are suppose to tag 5 people. Not that I plan on tagging you but... I would still like to know. Can anyone explain this to me?

P.S. I got a signature - thanks to Split Decisionz (link posted in the sidebar near the bottom)

February Giveaway

I only have a couple of these films but they were awesome!


Recently on one of the groups I am on a lady asked about MOTH. I was surprised that only 2 of us have used it. In my opinion it is one of the best resources for Christian homeschooling families (meaning mom). Especially if you are anything like me, lol. My hubby says I am a great planner but the actual follow through seems to be a problem :-) Somewhere between me creating a schedule and implementing it I get side tracked. I always forgot about something I wanted to accomplish. Now I'd be lying if I said I started MOTH and everything was perfect. I still have to work at staying on task BUT the biggest difference is that I was able to block in time for everything I wanted to accomplish each day. My schedule isn't perfect but my family was a lot happier when it was in place.

Which is why I had to pull out the book again recently. When we moved to FL our old schedule fell apart and we have been floundering around like a fish out of water ever since. I wish we could be a fly by the seat of our pants family but it just doesn't work out to well. My boys and I thrive on structure. We just have to be careful that we don't let the clock rule us in the end. So the other night I sat down with my book and started putting our priorities down on paper. What I want the boys to accomplish daily, what I want to accomplish, and what just plain out needs to be done. Our needs have definitely changed since the last time we had a set routine. Our Bible study time in the evening no longer fits into a 1/2 hour slot and we want each of us to have time alone with the Lord on a daily basis. So... I finished up the rough draft and Tuesday we started implementing parts of it. Only problem - Wed. came. Which requires a whole different routine. So decision time has come do I just have Wed. be an off day or do I drop some of our outside activities to fit the routine we so desperately need?

Guess I will be doing a little prayer this evening...

Sit & Spin

When I brought the sit and spin home from my mom's house I thought Isaac would enjoy it. Well he does like to sit and stand on it but then his oldest brother decided to steal it.


Sea World

The boys think we are just wrong for going to Sea World and not getting wet but depending on what day you go in February it can be a little to chilly to sit in the splash zone. We had a good time none the less. The boys saw Shamu's show "Believe" which thrilled Micah to death. Last time we went the Shamu show was "The Making of Believe" and he wanted to come back and see it real bad. It took a couple of years but we made it. Joel and I didn't ride the coasters :-( but the trip was for the boys and they got to see all of the animals and play on the 4 story playground. The best thing about the day was the BBQ it cost us about $45 total but it was all you can eat and the food was pretty good. The next time I go to a theme park I am going to look for something like that before we even get there.

My Guys


We went to Wordspring Discovery Center recently and had a blast. Wordspring is an interactive museum which tells about the Bible being translated into other languages. They have computer quizzes, wax people saying John 3:16 in different languages, different Bibles you can look at and other things to check out. It is kind of small but the boys really enjoyed it.
