Homeschooling 2nd grade….Finished!

So we finished our 2nd year of homeschooling and Nboy will be going into 3rd grade this fall! I just can’t believe it! Ekid will start Kindergarten and Baby, well he’s still potty training :)   It feels good to be done with the school year though. We had a rough year this year and had to play catch up after I closed my candle business, but we got it done and that’s what matters.

I’m looking forward to my new business venture (Higher Focus Web Design) and hopefully getting back to blogging more. I am determined to make a good income from home and so far I have been seeing an increase in my current income from Adsense from my different websites that I have.

So anyway, I think next year will go more smoothly as I said in my last post. I definitely want to have a home business that will work well with homeschooling and that I can stop what I’m doing at the drop of a hat if need be lol.I have a good feeling about this coming year. I’ll keep you all posted.

So what are your plans for summer vacation? Go ahead and share in the comments

We are looking forward to Vacation Bible School and then Church Camp after that! Nboy will be in a cabin this year since he is 8 years old, so Chris and I will only have 2 kids in the tent with us…Whoohoooo! :)  Can’t wait till camp!

Well, it’s awfully late, yikes, 3am! I keep getting engrossed in working on my websites and staying up way too late. Night All!

Can’t Wait till Camp!

First of all, if there’s anyone reading this that lives in Oregon, and you are interested in attending a church camp that is extremely affordable and you can come as a family, or just send you’re kids, please let me know! You can also visit the Union Rogue River Camp at the website. The website doesn’t say much specifically about our Baptist camp that we have every summer, but it does show what the camp looks like and it is also available for rent year round.  Contact me for more info (or you can use the contact info on the camp website to speak to the pastor of the church that sponsors the camp.)

Our camp this year is July 12-17th

I love our Baptist Church camp that we go to every year. It is absolutely incredible!  I look forward to it each year and so do the kids. It’s wonderful time to spend with fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, see lost souls saved, and take a nice break from the things of the world.

The camp is supported by Missionary Baptist churches here in Oregon and Washington, and it is such a great ministry to reach out to kids about the Lord(and adults too).  There are bible classes, sermons, activities and campfire every day, so you are around God’s Word constantly all week!

Kids 8 and over stay in cabins and adults and those with children under 8 stay in tents or camp trailers.

I just can’t believe that camp is coming upon us already though! I’m gonna have to start thinking about what I need to pack and what I need to buy before hand!  So anyway, I won’t be posting anything that week, but I will let everyone know how it went and share some pics when I get back(Though, I’ll be careful not to show anyone elses kids in the photos. I’m still a little unsure of  posting my own kids photos on my blog here, but that’s a post for another time!)

The cool thing is that we’ve actually been able to keep our car clean on the inside for about a month now, so I won’t have to scramble right before camp to get all the junk out of there so we can have room for all of us and our stuff for the week! That will be so nice!

I’ll post a little about how I prepare for a week of camp with 3 kids as the time gets closer, so, stay tuned! I actually do have a system down for getting ready for camp. I absolutely HATE forgetting things when it comes to being away for so long and several hours from home. I rarely forget anything important the way I’ve been doing it for several years now. Too bad I can’t be like that with the rest of my home! Ah, well, I’m still a work in progress! :)

Ta-ta-for now!
