Why I haven’t been writing much…

It has been in insanely busy month.  We’ve all had them, right?  Well, this month has been one of the busiest in a long time.  We traveled so much last semester, that I found it hard to get into a groove with our learning routine.  Just as we’d hit our stride, we’d head out to go speak, or to a conference, or to visit family…  As the new year dawned, I found myself craving routine.  We needed a smoothness to our days.  There is something to be said about habit.  It makes for easier days and it’s easier to get everything done well.

My sister had her second baby today! Hurray!  I’m wiped out just from pacing the hospital waiting room and then taking care of my nephew.  And with planning my first mid-year refresher and leadership conference for AFHE this month, there simply hasn’t been extra time to write and craft blog posts.  I’ve been plugging away at getting back into a smooth-flowing learning and living routine during the day and then planning and preparing like a mad-woman at night.

But I’ll be popping in here soon enough.  I can’t wait to tell you about our fabulous new typing program, how teaching money management skills has helped with my desire to slip into routine (double score), our newest art tool and of course some books that we’ve been loving.

In the meantime, I had to include some pictures from our adventures exploring glass blowing and the Chuhily exhibit that’s in town right now.  As we delve into our Honor unit this semester, we are starting off learning about the attributes of God {amazing} and a sculpture/pottery unit.  Since our co-op hadn’t resumed yet, we decided to go check out some glass sculpture!

I never cease to be amazed by and delighted in the power of reading a book or two about something and then going out to experience it!
