Homeschool Conventions in March!!!

CONVENTIONS! CONVENTIONS!

Hi Y'all!

Coming up in March are TWO Homeschool Conventions near us. One difference in vendor that I was told about is that Great Homeschool Convention will NOT have Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. So if this is a curriculum you use, please do look into that so it is not a wasted trip. Below I have posted helpful information about both conventions to help you determine which to attend.

Just Another "Poop" Story

WARNING: Don't read any further if you have a weak stomach


Let me start by saying that I am happy to say this is not a story about my own children. Many of you know I run a “Mom’s Morning Out” Program called PlayCare. This month we started a once-a-month Saturday evening program. We only had a few children so I was there on my own. 

My Initiation into Motherhood

So it finally happened.  I have heard stories of other Mom’s experiences.  I have witnessed similar episodes on my own shopping trips.  Never have I been the one under the spotlight…until today.
