          Summer School

  So lots of ideas about what to do and where to go to get some classes added to your school work.

  This year I have signed up with TOS magazine and they have over 250 classes to look at if you need something for your kids to do.

   I know usually I like to teach my own stuff and find what is out there, but with 1 looking to find credits to graduate and the other looking at what is needed to graduate I figure it might be time to pass the teaching off to someone else and this way I know what I count as a credit should count as a credit.

So what do you have to do to join this? How much does it cost?

Well the cost depends on specials they have going and that changes so go to the link on my page and it should take you to the main page to answer that question.

They have live help if you need to ask questions and they are very helpful and even answer strange questions too like mine was " how do you find out what is offered for credit?" and they pointed me to where every class says if they have credit attached to it or not.

One class my youngest is taking is photography and when she gets started and some good pictures I will post some on here for everyone to see.

Here is the link to TOS if anyone wants to use it to look around

                 GOOD TORTILLA

Well my family likes a good Mexican meal and sometimes you just don't feel like going to the store to get shells.  I found this recipe and it has served us well for a few months now.

I hope that this video will serve you as nicely as it has me over the past few years.  Good eating everyone
Well my bread machine started making grinding noises so ... I decided that it was time to put it out of its misery.

  Well I decided it was about time to learn how to bake bread with a bowl and wooden spoon, searching high and low I found one that was easy to use.

School Change Up

                                                 As A Lot Of You Know

   Well spring comes and not only are we spring cleaning our houses and yards but also trying to fix any problems that we have seen with the kids and the education department.  So on that note I took the opportunity to do the Build Your Bundle and found a good price for TOS and I am going to use that for the next year anyway.
   The youngest likes to do school in a combo of lapbooks and notebooks so I think I can make that work for her, and the oldest just needs a few credits and then off to college he goes

Life Goes On

  A lot happens in our house

  My Mother passed away last Aug. and she is Greatly Missed
  Hubby had 2 heart attacks one in Sept and one in Dec

Oldest was suppose to graduate but with all that happened he is a few credits shy so he is working to get them done and then continue his life (which is still all learning)
Youngest is still in middle school having a good time riding bikes, playing with dogs and generally being a energetic girl.

Me well things have been rough and I haven't felt like writing or talking to many people lately and for that I am sorry but if you will bear with me I hope to start again.
