What blog is about Intro

Come on in and sit awhile while I talk about the "Little Things" in life. I will share my journey of everyday life.... homeschooling, raising my children, homesteading, gardening, health and wellness, and real life.

Crossing Off My To Do List: Countdown to Summer

We are still chugging along with our "school year" at the Swafford house and we are counting down to the lazier days of Summer.... which don't seem like they are going to be very lazy.  Sigh.  So, I thought I would share my To Do List here.  This just has the big stuff on it.  If I listed everything this would never be ready to post.  In fact, I actually wrote this post a few weeks back and have gotten some things done already.  As time goes I will post updates and I will add those things in colors to make the new things more obvious.  This might be fun to see.

  1. Oooh camping! That's on our 'to do' list for the summer as well :) We have 9 days of school left...nothing major, just some light stuff, tying up loose ends, and reviews. You've commented a few times about moving...I'd love to hear more about it. And I remembered to check the 'notify me' box, so I WILL get a notification...lol!!!

    1. Well, I may have to do a post about moving. Most people find it odd that we want to downsize, so that would probably be something fun to write about.
