You Are THE Mom

I’m so excited when I reconnect with friendships, even when they are virtual friends that I’ve never met, online. Well – tonight I get to reconnect with a friend, and her name is Joanne Calderwood. She spoke at my online events in the past – and even, way, long ago was a guest speaker for […]

A Day in the Life of an Editor

By Mandy V. Robinson I am an editor. Everywhere I go I see grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes. Some are slight, while others are not so slight. Every time I see a mistake, I think to myself, “This means I will always have a job.” Some gems I’ve found recently: A T-shirt for sale at a […]

being a mom

Being a Mom

Every wonder what’s it like to be a mom? Probably not – because you already are one. As a homeschooler – by definition – you have a child you school. Or in the case of a lady I met recently, a niece and nephew she homeschools. Being a mom is something that comes naturally for […]

Super Bowl In Your Life

Super Bowl: The super bowl evokes all types of emotions – for me it symbolizes the day I fell in love. I never was a big football fan, I know *gasp* right? But, when Mr. Right asked me to spend the evening watching the game of course I said, yes! We talked, we laughed, we […]


Do Moms Need A Night Out?

Long, long ago when I was a young, whippersnapper, homeschool mom – I learned about this great thing called, “Mom’s Night Out”, and I was soooo excited! Wow, really? One night out with my friends?

candy cane cookies

Candy Cane Cookie Recipe

  This cookie takes a bit more work but it is worth the efforts. If you don’t like using food dye this recipe is not for you, or you can make it without the dye. They are yummy and my original recipe called for crushed peppermint candy. Only the little kids enjoyed the crunch. The […]


Gingerbread Cookies

Turkey Hand Wreaths

  I love doing crafts! At one time I though I wanted to be an art major. That is before I took one art course in college (and survived, with an “A”, thank-you very much) but I realized it wasn’t for me…to do professionally anyway! So, happily I married, had children that loved to do […]
