Back to Blogging....Back to School!

It's Back to Blogging Time

It has been a little over two years since I wrote any new material on this blog.  I am picking back up the blogging pen once again, however, my life is a bit different now.

I am no longer homeschooling but I am planning on keeping the homeschooling resources here and will be working in the coming weeks to make sure that all the links are working and will be finding new links to add as well.

I am no longer a stay at home mom, I went back into the workforce last school year after being home for 19 years and returned to the classroom as a kindergarten paraprofessional. I love my new job working at a school that is inner city and has lots of "at risk" kids that attend the school.  I am planning on posts regarding my experiences at my job along with balancing the job and family life.

I love to share recipes and bargains, so meal plans and local specials will still make appearances on here as well.  I also will be putting more posts of how my family of seven is living on a budget with having two incomes now.

I love to share about my kids and things that they are doing and experiencing as well.  I will be adding some family posts to the blogging schedule as well.

It's Back to School Time

My five kids are growing and it is hard to believe that in 3 short weeks the school year will be in full throttle!  I am so happy that I made the decision to close my homeschooling books and send my kids to school.  All of them are thriving and enjoying their experiences.

My 19 yo is a sophomore at Purdue University studying Mechanical Engineering. My almost 17 yo is a senior at the local high school and is starting the college application process.  My almost 15 yo is a sophomore at the local high school and he loves his Robotics group.  My 8 yo who is actually the "baby" of the family will be going into third grade this year.  My 11 yo is going into sixth grade this year and growing up into a lovely young lady.

I am starting my second year as a kindergarten paraprofessional.  It certainly has been exciting getting back into a classroom. I love interacting with the kindergartners and getting into their world. It definitely has been a balancing act of working outside of the home and working at home.
