Blasting Back into School

Life is moving along at such a fast pace it is difficult to keep up! Do you have the same problem-I mean challenge?! Sometimes what seems to us like a problem can really turn out to be a blessing. For homeschool moms finding the time to plan field trips and play dates can be quite a problem (um..challenge :). If you'd like to have help with this challenge, please let us know. Our homeschool group is here to be a blessing and help make your life easier!

The back-to-school-blast-off last month was great fun and I was glad to see new faces added to our group. The more the merrier! Although I wasn't able to be at the skate, I did see the pictures posted on our yahoo page. The smiles were beautiful. Because I was sick and not able to be there, the wonderful group members sent me a sweet card filled with get well wishes (yes, I did cry!) and the kids made me a banner. It was so precious!! I loved it. It really did help me to feel better!

This month everyone has been getting back into the swing of things with club meetings and more field trips. We've kicked off our food, fun, & fitness class and will be having our 4-H club meeting in a few days. The kids are so excited to see who gets elected to be their officers this year. They are also excited about our field trip this month. They will not only be getting hands on time caring for horses they will also get individual riding time! My kids are "chomping at the bit" for field trip day to get here! ( Hee!Hee! see my pun?! :)

Coming up next month, in addition to our regular club meeings, the photographer will be taking our individaul pictures for the yearbook. Also, we will be visiting the Star Homeplace. The cost will be $5 per person and the sign-up deadline is Sept. 30th. You can find more information on what they offer at:
