Here We Go Again ...

First Day of 3rd Grade. Homeschool style.

 This means we made it through 2nd Grade (so says the lovely lady who approved our 2nd Grade portfolio and passed us on to Grade 3). Which means, apparently, that I know how to teach up to 2nd Grade. This makes me feel semi-proud. Yeah, I taught my kid how to read, write and perform mathematic calculations. But now comes American History, memorization of the states, Presidential biographies, long division, essay writing, scientific experiments, and other more serious business. Am I up to the task? Will another chaotic event take me away from my teaching so that Isaac and I are finishing up "school" well into August? Good Lord, let's hope not. But even through the chaos of the last year, we did it. Isaac and I rock as a team, and here is to another year of working it through together ...

And Karate ... yes, Karate ... the one class my son looks forward to above all else.

We got this buddy. 3rd Grade will rock. One day down. 179 to go.

It's Been a Bumpy Ride ...

 ... but with the help of these two amazing guys ... all is well now.

I stopped posting to this blog quite some time ago because chaos took over our lives. Some of it was bad ... real bad. But some of it was good ... real good. Things seem to have come to us in extremes this year. But as I said, all is well now.

I would like to get back to writing on this blog. I am ready. I am ready to tell the stories of our past year as well as our current endeavors. I am stronger now. So much stronger. And it is time to record my life ... our lives ... again.

Thank you for sticking around.
