Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hi! I’m Sam, and this is my space online where I spill words out of my Noggin onto virtual paper. I am 33, have 6 wonderful blessings, and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 15 years. I like to be involved with our local church, {non-denominational} where my husband is a minister.  {If you visited me last year, this blog was The Kelley Ei8ht.}


We are wrapping up our 3rd year of homeschooling-which was never the plan-but we can’t imagine not homeschooling now. You’ll find a few different things here. I talk about homeschooling, of course, but I also love to organize, write homeschool reviews, and talk about fitness and weight loss. I love to take pictures.

Some posts that may help you see what things are like around here:

My Weight Loss Story

Our Classroom {where I show how many different rooms we have shuffled between}

My Personal Planner

Our Classroom  2012 {small changes since the last post}

Our Curriculum 

I hope to meet lots of new homeschooling friends!

    Being new to the blogging scene, I have no clue what the UBP is. Can you fill me in?
    I have been enjoying your blog immensely!

      I write in the post name, having the post open in another window, I then copy the url, use the left button on the mouse to highlight the name of the post which I just typed, and click on the insert link button in the menu. Paste the url in and add the link. :)

    Stopping by from the UBP 2012, but have visited before. In fact, I’ve come across your blog three times in the last two days while searching for things on the ‘net, so *someone’s* telling me it’s time to subscribe! Looking forward to seeing you in my “inbox!”
