I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Homeschool Room Makeover Organizing the Curriculums and Closet

Homeschool Room Makeover Organizing my Teaching Space

Last year I just taught my oldest Nut and it wasn’t that big of a deal to have just 1 child’s curriculums to organize. I had a small space that I created in my office, but it still ended up all over the house. This year I took 3 shelf units from our bedroom...

Homeschool Room Makeover Organizing my Teaching Space

It took us 5 years to finally finish caulking around the windows, fill in the nail holes and paint the trim and the baseboards. The Classroom was Wing Nut’s bedroom for 7 years, E Nut’s bedroom for over 5 years and Little Nut Nut’s room for 2 years. Have you ever noticed that sometimes...

Repairing The Walls in The Homeschool Classroom

Until the middle of June, our three oldest Nuts shared a bedroom. It was a tight fit, with a set of bunk beds and another bed, bookshelf dressers and all the toys of the three Nuts packed in. After they moved out we started repairing the damage caused by 3 boys and the way...

Having Some Ducks Over for Lunch

It has been raining for days. DAYS! We had HVAC over today to finish up the heating/cooling in the addition and clean out the vent system in our old ductwork. We have lived in our house for almost 7 years, and have not ever had the ducts cleaned. And by the condition of the...

Another Virginia Snow Storm, Another Post Full of Snowy Pictures

This is the storm from last week that kept my public schooler home from Friday to Thursday. Every once in a while a scooper comes along and pushes some snow around. The plow only drove down our street once, many of the streets are 3-4 inches deep with ice, full of pot holes and...
