So sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. I’m still trying to figure out how to maintain balance and priorities. My family is number one priority so blogging got swept to the wayside for a bit.

We’ve been having struggles with our eldest in school, so I’ve been focusing with him. We have also cone to the important decision to give homeschooling a try next year. Our goal is to hopefully get our son excited about school and learning again, as he didn’t have a good experience this year.

In the past I did homeschool him for preschool and kindergarten, so I’m not a total stranger to it. However I have two grades to homeschool this year, kindergarten and 3rd grade.

I have an overwhelming peace about our decision, yet I’m terrified. Is that possible? LOL. I’m not going in with blinders on, I know it will be difficult, the days long, but I feel as if this is the right choice for this next year.

Now the next big decision is choosing our curriculum. I know God who is ever faithful will lead us in this as well. What about you, do you homeschool your children, if so do you have any tips or advice to share?

Considering Hosting a Giveaway!!

So I was checking my stats today for my blog, and was excited to see that my views are up to 440! My goal in March was to get them to 300! To say I’ve succeeded is an understatement. It took me years to get the courage to finally start a blog, but I’m so glad that I finally did. It took encouragement from a good friend and mentor/fitness coach Trina Wilkerson to finally get it started. She hosted a FB group PUSH from Chalene Johnson, that gave me the tools and courage to follow my dreams.
Most of my life I’ve always enjoyed writing. Mostly short little poems but my dream has been to be a writer and eventually get published. But I never thought anyone would ever read or enjoy my stuff. I still don’t know that. But I do know I’m one step closer to my goal.
So to celebrate that goal I am considering hosting a giveaway here on my blog when I teach 500 views. Key word: Considering. I’ve never done anything like this before so I’m still researching it out and trying to find sponsors. What I need to know is will you my readers be willing to participate and help me share my blog with other social networking via twitter/Pinterest/FB? What are some of the things you’d like as a giveaway? I’d love some tips from more of you long time bloggers on this subject! Please share in the comments below!
