The Concert Experience
House of Rock / February 10, 2015

My kids have been to a few concerts but nothing that they were INCREDIBLY excited about…until NOW! We got to go see Halestorm, which is Phillips favorite band and the drummer is his idol. Needless to say he was very excited. Now, I love this band  so I too was excited and we decided we were going to be hard core freaks (this is the loving name given to Halestorm fans). As I explained to my kids I was going to give them the GREA...

HOMESCHOOLING
School House / September 28, 2014

Yep, we homeschool. Nope, I don’t wear skirts or jumpers….EVER. Yes, I have taught my children at home since Kindergarten or kindigarten, or kindergarden….since the beginning. No, I am not doing it for religious reasons. Yes, I give my children a choice every year of going to public school or staying home. I do however love my job and pray my children choose to let me teach them every year. No, I don’t have a Education de...

WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL????
School House / September 28, 2014

I was reading an article today about the struggles that the “pioneer” home schoolers went through to become law abiding citizens. You see, not very many years ago (I think that because I was a middle schooler at the time), home schooling was illegal. The article itself was interesting but nothing I would forward to anyone. What was more amazing were the comments. WOW! There are a lot of misconceptions about home schooling...

MY LOVE
House of Rock / August 29, 2014

I can’t possibly explain to you how much I love music. Music falls in my lineage of love right after my family. I could listen to all genres of music at least for a little while. Rock is my all time favorite and I love all of it except scream-o. I think there is absolutely NO talent in screaming words and I sometimes think, “I can’t wait for this person to loose his voice so I don’t have to hear this EVER AGAI...

MY PERFECT FAMILY
Main Menu / August 17, 2014

Let me introduce you to this cast of characters in my perfect life, from left to right: Konner- he plays guitar. Phillip- He plays drums, Robb- AKA: Hubs, he also plays drums and me-I’m the housewife. I play the radio and sing…badly. The two babies at the bottom are Ringo Star and Charlie Brown- they make me happy. I love this picture. It’s all about how we want to look to the “outer world”.  I want you to bel...

Inner Peace
Farm House / August 15, 2014

Hubs and I have always dreamed of moving out of the city to a nice quiet place in the country. We wanted to have a place our boys could roam and discover and experiment and enjoy. Several years we looked but nothing was quite what we wanted. It was just a feeling that there was something that fit us better. As we drove to a friends home we found the perfect spot. It was beautiful, on top of a hill with views like none we had ever see...

First Timer
Main Menu / August 15, 2014

I’m so excited. Today is the the day. I have thought about this for many years but something held me back.  Was it my lack of confidence? NO. Was it that I didnt have anything to say? NOPE. Was it that I thought nobody would care? Nada. It was my lack of IT experience AKA: Not knowing how to create a folder on my desktop, AKA: not knowing how to get a picture uploaded, downloaded or sideloaded. AKA: I’m a techtard. But Today I stood ...
