Just popping in to say Happy New Year. I'm very late but at least I'm consistent (seeing how my Christmas cards are still sitting here).
As you can see, I've made a few changes to the blog. I felt like going retro!
I'm trying to simplify everything in my life and this blog is apart of that. I will continue to streamline things here so they are easy to navigate through.
If you have any suggestions, I would truly love to hear them.
I know where everything is on this blog so it's hard for me to be objective.
So input would be good.
(Think No. 5 in Short Circuit, "Input! Input! I neeeed input!)
We are back to school this week and are finishing Week 11 of Rome to Reformation.
I have to say... we're all moving a bit slow. But, coming up later this week I hope to:
• have a new video demonstrating the Apologia Science activity on pulleys and mechanical advantage.
• the Mcklinky for Weekly Homeschool Highlights (open to all homeschoolers not just MFW users)
• a video demonstrating the sewing on of ribbons to ballet slippers because I have had an ordeal (!) and I couldn't find any help online. I hope someone out there will learn from my pain!
Just kidding about the pain part :)
Over the next few weeks, I also hope to get some Practically Speaking posts up as well as another addition to "From the Inbox"
Thanks to a friend (who has no idea she helped me), I realized that things were out of balance here at Mishmash.
My header says, "Encouragement • Education • Everyday" and I do try to keep things in that order.
I knew things were getting a little out of balance when my blog was moved from her "Where I Find Insights and Encouragement" to "Homeschool Blogs I Enjoy." Yikes!
I think that most readers are here for homeschool stuff but I know that the Lord would have me encourage people in Him first, help with homeschooling second, and share our day-to-day life third.
Whew, well, I think that's it for now. I have lots of new things "cooking" right now-- January 18 I'll be starting a new bible study with a group of amazing women.
I've got new projects a brewing.
I'm excited for what the Lord is going to do in 2010.
So, how are you? Back to school? How was Christmas? Whatcha doin'?
Tap, tap-- Anybody there? Just checking... :)
