Tax Rebate Warning

My friend K's husband is an accountant. He has posted some important information about a tax rebate being given this year for people with children. Please go to their blog, Matschstick Adventures to read about it, and then spread the word. Most people do not realize that this is kind of like a "loan" on next year's taxes!!

Flowers are Red

This is why we homeschool!!
It makes me so disheartened when people live life in a box. Our children need to be challenged to look around them, to make decisions and opinions on their own, to see all the blessings God richly lavishes on us. I'm not pounding public school people, I'm simply saying that we need to be able to "see all the colors of the rainbow".

Well, we got snowed in again and couldn't go to church. To help cheer disappointed children, we hosted our first annual Snowman-a-Mania Contest!!

Comments more than welcome!!!

Snowy Sunday

Well, we haven't made it to church for 2 Sundays (one week we were out of town and last week miserably sick) so we were really looking forward to going this morning.....and then we awoke to 8 inches of snow and it is still falling heavily!! Hubby went out and shoveled and cleared off the car, but 10 minutes later it was covered again! So he decided we'd have to skip church again (it's not the driving in the snow that concerns us, it's the other people driving that concerns us). Of course we were all pretty disappointed, but I believe I cheered spirits up a bit by declaring a snowman contest of our own. Winner will get a HUGE cookie and all contestants will get cookies. So, stay tuned, I will try to get pictures to send, as they are all busy beavers out there building their snowmen! Can't wait!!!
