Thank you all for your lovely comments, helpful suggestions and the happy "welcome back!" :)
Go Eagles!! :)
Mary, you are always so very kind. Thank you for your encouragement! I will remember your parents in my prayers. :)
Thank you, everyone - I enjoyed reading your thoughts, very much. Great food for thought and lots of commiseration! :) We did a fairly decent job on our list this weekend. Another thing I do is on Sunday, when we're halfway through the weekend, I circle a few/several items to focus on. The things we really should get done - and by circling them they stand out. The rest will be shelved for another List! ;) Thanks again, all - and for the kind words. It's good to be back!
Lena, I'm not sure I've read Emily Barnes, but I'm awfully flattered you compare my writing style to hers, a professional writer! Thank you. I will have to check out her books! :)
Leah, thank you for sharing that information! And thank you all for your thoughts ... it really was a special moment! :)

Leah, I bought most of this stuff at a very small independent paper crafting store in the town next to me. A few things I got at AC Moore and the planner I ordered from Payne Publishers.

Helena, we have used all kinds of resources through the years but Oak Meadow most of all. Especially in the very young years and again through high school. Best wishes on your first year of homeschooling! :)
