Mirror Broken Mirror

And just like that, the mirror slid from the top of my makeup case and crashed onto the tile floor.  Shattered, Broken, Shiny pieces…Some so tiny, others large chunks. I cleaned up the mess and went on about my day but God kept whispering to take a look at that broken mirror. Ok, God, I […]

All American History Out Loud

The weather was absolutely beautiful today and since my children were stuck inside all day yesterday because it was raining and I was in bed sick, we HAD to get outside today.  But we also had to do school so I came up with a fun, creative way to allow both.  We have a speaker that […]

Bits Of Our Day

First Day of School 2012

Today was our official first day for the 2012-2013 school year.  Yes, we started ON Labor Day.  We had no special plans for the day and have been on break for a couple of weeks anyway because we do school through the summer so why not kick off the new year with a review of […]
