We have a slight interruption of our life skills series, we have a very sick mama! I have been fighting some thing, and yesterday afternoon it hit me like a truck. So I am going to rest, and pray to feel better soon. *prayers for health would be appreciated*

New next week...

I have been inspired, by all the ladies whose blogs I follow that are doing series of blog posts. And so I have decided that next week I will be doing a blog post series on "life skills". We are wrapping up our school year, as we have finished our 180 days. So I thought it would be fun to do a week or 2 on life skills. I will be posting a list over the weekend of what we will be doing each day. I will be blogging twice a day, once in the morning as to what our hopes are for the day, in a little more detail then the list I am posting this weekend, then again in the evening to show some pictures and tell you how things went :)
God Bless.
