A new tomorrow :: beginnings

Happy start to your school year however that looks for you.  Maybe this means more quiet days at home. Maybe this means longer work hours at work.  Maybe it means standing at the front of a classroom of 22 kids.  Maybe you're the mom-teacher.

since I'm having MAJOR technical difficulties uploading pictures
you'll have to settle for last year's first day of school.....
I'm NOT a happy camper about this.  I need to hit the Apple store.

About 7 months ago, I was introduced to the term "road schooling"

Flexibility ... the clean slate

A blank page
A clean slate
A new day

Where will we go from here?  What shall we do now?

Day 5 of our yearlong adventure:

MGM Grand : Vegas
Waking up late (7:20am to be round about.)

"Living" in Vegas ... not exactly my place.

finally.....our first destination :: Las Vegas

Since this journey began I find myself sad ....a little sad that a few of my closest friends never experience my world ... because they're social recluses.  No offense, you friend out there with No FB, Instagram, Twitter, or even Pinterest account....for the love.....get with ONE of them for the sake of all my sanity.  Heck, make up a fake name....use a picture of bananas as your profile...just make it happen.

out of the tunnel

Have you ever had a really tough battle in front of you? Or maybe you're in the middle of one right now.  Your dog died, your mom has just been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, you lost your job, your kid fell out of a tree and broken his leg, you wrecked the car, your husband had an affair, you get the idea.....bad stuff can and does happen .... to good folks, even.  
drove thru this mountain via this super cool underground tunnel

I understand hurt and pain.  I understand a broken heart....and I feel for those spilling tears tonight...soaking their pillow.  I've been there.  You NEVER know what someone is going through unless you've been in their shoes ... or a fly on their wall:)

goodbye Tiny Town

For the past 20 months, I've lived off the beaten path just outside of Tiny Town Tipton, Iowa on a farm fit for a king.  I've loved every minute of this peaceful existence.....ok nearly
cold, wet, drab February on the farm...I shall not miss you!

Eyes Open : Here We Go

Questions whirl around 
bouncing every which way
But a peace rushes over me
as I look toward this day

Everything we own.
Sold, donated, shipped to Texas, or burned
