I don’t like social media.. honestly I don’t. I think it sucks the life out of my life. This need to show off, make certain people know who we’ve been with and what we’ve done..its at the core of whats wrong in MY life. I have spent more time as a mom on some sort of social media than I care to admit. First it was AOL and message boards..then Myspace..now Facebook.
I love the connection that FB allows..but I hate it at the same time. We should not only be watching each other’s life unfold..we should be IN them. Yet without FB I probably won’t know what any one is doing. I’m not the person most people invite to do stuff with..I don’t know why.. maybe I’m horrible and not really well liked..who knows. So without FB I will likely feel lonely..but with FB I always feel lonely and left out.. can’t win either way.
So , while I can’t delete my FB due to the fact I have the dance studio’s page off my own…I did delete it off my phone weeks ago.. and now I’ve deleted it off my ipad. I will find my inner peace here..at home..

So many years ago we jumped into the box and started using Abeka..then we jumped out and only used them for ELA and Math… still using them for Ziah and Taejan. Declan is using Switched on Schoolhouse for his core this year.
Well a few weeks ago I discovered All in One Homeschool..AKA Easy Peasy.. and we LOVE it! Declan is using the Modern Music and Thinking and some of the English.
Taejan and Ziah are using the entire thing.. in addition to their Abeka. I can honestly say this is by far our best year.. so much is being learned..I feel like I am fully reaching my goals already!! Whoot Whoot!!!
Don’t forget to follow us on FB as thats where I do daily posting.. but I am still blogging and I think starting next week it will be even more!
Oh on a side note.. kids all started basketball.. and aside from house league for each ( 3 different teams over 4 days and all different times) Declan also made the 5/6th grade state travel team…WHOOT WHOOT!!!

Way back in 2009 when my kids were still cute and sweet, on our first day of school..we buried a time capsule. LINK to that post.
Well fast forward to 2013…kids are a little less cute and hardly ever sweet.. and its not the first day of school..but they wanted to dig it up…so guess what..we did!
Digging it up:
The items they had put in there 4 long years ago!
refilled for another 4 years
Back in the ground!

Blogging just doesnt appeal to me as it once did. I think it’s because the kids are older and dont do much thats FUN like they did when they were younger. I do post nearly daily on our FB page..just smaller blurbs..
I do have some vacation pictures to post soon though!!
