Thanks for stopping by. You know, I've been cleaning up the site a little bit and it occured to me that I've not been a very faithful blogger. I've failed to blog more than a handful of times this year and now, the year is nearly over.
My New Year's Resolution (among several), is to be a better blogger. Not just in how I write, but in the content. You, the reader, deserve my best and I'm going to strive to give it to you. In doing so, I had to rediscover what it is about blogging that I enjoy...
First, it's sharing! What I've learned during this crazy adventure in homeschooling
But it's also:
and of course... some hard truths.
So, in order to do my best, I'm going to NOT focus on any one particular area, but simply, blog as I see (and feel) fit to do so. I found myself comparing my blogging skills with others. But then I realized, they may be hardcore bloggers because they are supplementing their income or, it may be their only income...
But I am not a paid blogger. For one, I don't know the first thing about affiliates and sponsors, the hows, or whats of it... I just... Don't.
But I do know about what I enjoy, and that is all that I need to worry with.
You may have noticed some changes to the site - it needed updating in the worst way! So I've changed the theme and added some new photos. I've also added a page counter at the very bottom - this lets me know what pages get the most views. Don't worry - I cannot see your IP at all... EVER!
To add a little flavor, I've asked Gia once again to host a blog series on the True Stories of Homeschool. You can find it under the Blog tab. She has families contacting her with real-life stories of homeschool families. All names and locations are omitted for privacy, but the stories are very real. She's just posted her first one, with more coming after the New Year begins.
The winter newsletter is posted in the newsletter section - and if you missed an edition, feel free to find it there as well.

As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions, ideas, concerns, or just want to chat! We love hearing from you!
Until next time,
Welcome! My name is LaVonda. I am the wife of Rodney, the mom of 5 remarkable kids (well, 2 are adults now), an avid homeschooler, blogger, and sociologist. I am blessed with the ability to spend my time sharing our homeschool and life experiences with you. It is my hope to provide you with motivation, ideas, and some candid stress-relief through my blog - Mom's Scribe! Grab a cup of coffee, sit on down, and make yourself at home!
