You know there is a reason I put that last sentence on the page that tells what my blog is about. It reads "I take breaks from time to time in blogging" ---- sometimes I don't even know when I take lol

Isn't homeschooling something like that?

I never lived quite so wild before this "organizer/planner" married a "wiggly willy"....... He tells me that it is very normal to have knee-jerk reactions to planning....

The top picture is of beautiful Chateau on the Lake in Branson Missouri...As much as I love to travel, I had never been up in that part of the country to see the Ozark Mountains--it is just beautiful through Arkansas and Missouri....even in the summer when the heat this year has been so awful...

The lake above that the hotel sits beside is called Table Rock Lake---it was just calling for us to spend the day boating on it---- we were able to rent a boat and tube....

I'll try to share a few more pictures this week..but have lots I want to share first..

The quality of the freebies are worth your time in looking over this site and bookmarking it. I am still clicking around on each section but wanted to share just a few of the pictures that are in the downloads so you can see the quality.

Around this time of the year I get more driven about organization and label everything and so I found this site that has labels you can "edit"...The site is not so easy to navigate so be sure to give yourself some time to look as it seems they try to make locating the templates as hard as
