Oh my word!!!  Has it really been since JANUARY since I last posted????

Okay, I have an excuse.  Actually, many excuses.  🙂

First of all, I FINALLY got to go back to Alabama and visit my family for a few days.  I’m so glad we went.  It’s definitely helped with the homesickness and now I’m definitely glad to be back in California and moving forward with the new life God has for us here.  I still miss my friends and fam back home but I feel so much better having gotten to see them again, even if just for a few days.  That first year was just especially tough because it was my first time away from them with thousands of miles in between.  My parents and I were very close.  We were not only great friends, but we were neighbors.  That said, I am finally at this new place in my life here where it feels okay to be here.  West coast life is beginning to feel very much so like home, but a “new” kind of home, and it feels right.

After our trip down South, we had Easter/Resurrection Day.  And boy do I have loads of pics but just haven’t gotten around to it.  Sorry!!!!!

Here’s my other excuse for not being around lately:  I’ve been YouTubing a good bit about our homeschool.

And while busy with that I’d been praying about an outlet besides blogging (and as if YouTubing wasn’t enough) to keep me happily busy helping others with home education.  So, the Lord gave me an idea about starting a community-based website for christian homeschooling moms.
Still working on the site, but I hope to have it up by mid-summer.

And I am SOOO excited about this project!  I loved podcasting back in ’05-’09 and I miss it.  I enjoy people- talking to other women, encouraging women to keep on going through life…that sort of thing.  I also love learning about other cultures or even just other lifestyle within a similar culture.  My quest for learning about people really helps when it comes to podcasting because I LOVE asking questions!!!
On the new homeschooling website I plan to create a  podcast, and I’m hoping to find some candidates to interview.  If you’re a homeschooling mama and love to talk (or answer questions about your lifestyle with homeschooling), I’d absolutely love to have you be my guest on the show.
