I haven't really fallen off the face of the earth...

I know this is a MUCH overdue update and I decided that today 09/09/09 would be the day to write *something*!

I spent the summer doing organizing projects, the biggest of which included setting up lesson plans in my favorite software program: Homeschool Tracker.

I'll have to post some pictures of my book labeling project. We use Sonlight curriculum for history and literature and this year I am using 4 levels. In order to keep my sanity, I felt the need to be *extremely* organized. I have each level of Sonlight (Cores K, 3, ALT 7 and 100) labeled, arranged and shelved. I have a "working school binder" set up so that I can grab ONE binder that moves around the house with me as I coach, instruct and mentor the girls.

I've also started "couponing" this summer. More so in the last couple of weeks. Even BooBear has enjoyed printing out coupons and looking through the ads to get the best deal. Not the healthiest of food but now that school has started we've been eating cereal for breakfast to make things easier in the morning. I was *thrilled* to get several boxes of Cheerios for only a $1 a box.

I think now that we are back with a routine and some structure, I might actually have more time to blog.


  1. Glad your back and looking forward to reading more! :-)

  2. Tess, Glad to see you back on the blog! We have a broken van and so will miss seeing you all at church today! Waa.. Would love a time to catch up with you and the girls. xoxo the family for us, Holly for the Reilly Clan
