Homeschooling and Giveaway

Well, I've posted 4 times in the last year. Surely I'm up for "Pathetic Blog of the Year" award. I probably have about 3 people that still even read this. Oh well. I might actually start blogging more because next month I start a new journey..... homeschooling. My son will be beginning Kindergarten. Hard to believe. Don't they grow so quickly? Speaking of quickly, my baby is now almost 5 months old. It's a little sad.

Even though I haven't been blogging I'm still reading blogs like crazy. I've narrowed down the ones I read and some of my new favorites are about big families. Yep. Because that's what's on my heart. I've realized that even just having 3 children now puts me in a different bracket. It's amazing how many people couldn't believe we were having 3. And I pretty much didn't tell too many people that I'm hoping for several more. Yes, several. :) I have a fixed heart (still thankful for all your prayers) and I plan on putting it to good use, chasing after a houseful of blessings.
Some of my new favorite blogs are (in no particular order) Raising Olives, Smockity Frocks, Raising Arrows, and Life in a Shoe.

One of these blogs, Raising Olives is having a giveaway that I want to win!!! So I'm here to tell you about it and I will begin posting a little more about our homeschool adventures.

Well I'm glad you are blogging again :)

I can not tell you how much it gets on my nerves when I walk into places with my 4 kids and everyone looks at me like I've brought in 20. Then they look and say "are they all yours?" Seriously - there's only four. it's not like I'm Michelle Duggar and I"m walking in with 20.

Ugh! Drives me insane!

Wow, I pray God blesses you as you begin homeschooling. I have been homeschooling for 5 years and I love it. We will likely get the same kind of reaction if we are blessed with our 3rd.
