New Year Ramblings

Well my brain seems to be on BLOG vacation - but I have lots of thoughts up there.  Do you ever "ramble" my husband has accused me of rambling a time or two (probably more)!!  I don't make New Year Resolutions but I do consider my year make plans and goals - here are just a few NEW things rolling around in my brain!!

First, today is our first day of homeschooling our 2nd grader - it has been a FUN day - my son could not wait to demonstrate his science project to his dad at lunch (probably because it gets everything WET more than educating my husband!!) but he was able to explain what he learned about "air pressure" so something besides WATER soaked in!!  As we enter this new venture expect to hear great homeschooling stories - I'll share our ups/downs, ideas for others who homeschool etc.  If you are a homeschooling mom I would LOVE to have you join us share as well.

Second, well lets just say I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant and "hanging in there" whew can't wait for this baby girl to get here - a new addition will definately make this year different, exciting and blessed.  Can't wait to share all those details with you (I'll skip the birthing ones though~)

Third, my brain has been on "business" overload, deciding what projects to make, how to advertise and market, what to add, etc.  I also have been busy planning all the new "farm" additions from vegetables to grow to ducks to raise - sometimes you have to restrain me because I go a little nuts!!

But all the planning is FUN and I cannot wait to see what 2011 holds.  We will be switching our blog up a bit and introducing TAB w/ topics since we will have a little bit of everything.  We hope this makes it easier to find the resources and posts your most interested in whether it be recipes, homeschooling, farm life stories, pictures or our latest and greatest Farmhouse wood creations.  May God Bless each of you in the new year - we are glad you are making the journey with us.    Stay tuned as we will have a give away later this month - don't miss it!!
