Two posts in one week. Wow. Crazy. I know. But I wanted to share some pictures I took of the Sunflower fields while we were at Ijams. They are blooming and there are 70 acres of them. So enjoy the pictures. © 2019 Dianna Auton © 2019 Dianna Auton © 2019 Dianna Auton © 2019 … Continue reading Sunflowers

Another Year and Another Graduate

So another school year has gone by and we are technically half way through our summer. It's hard to believe. My second daughter has graduated high school and now I only have one left to educate. Phew!!! It's exciting and yet seems hard to believe that I have two college kids. Hope will continue her … Continue reading Another Year and Another Graduate

Focus & Word of the Year

It's amazing to me how God can get your attention just by the little things that go on in life. For me it is just little drops of things that will get into my mind and not go away. This year I really felt like I needed to go back to a Word that I … Continue reading Focus & Word of the Year

A Bit of Catching Up

What can I say. It's been a very busy and sporadic fall. Now we are into Winter, officially anyway. I started teaching at our Co-Op again. I got to teach Ancient World History to 3rd - 5th graders and 6th - 8th graders. I had two amazing classes for this first semester. Great students and … Continue reading A Bit of Catching Up

Co-Op kept me pretty busy as well. Along with getting my senior going. So needless to say my oldest has now … Continue reading Graduation, New School Year and What??

Blogging Changes & Life

We've been fairly busy these last few weeks with the new co-op in full swing and regular homeschool classes. Plus I've become more social in real life. HaHa! This introvert has been forced out of her shell and become an extroverted introvert.  In other words by nature I'm and introvert and I've taught myself to … Continue reading Blogging Changes & Life

Peppermint: My Go To Oil

If I could only pick one oil with which to live I would have to choose Peppermint. Why? Well there are so many reasons. Peppermint is used for so many different things. We use peppermint on a daily basis in our home. Topically, diffused and internally as well. It's a very versatile oil with so … Continue reading Peppermint: My Go To Oil

Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano review

There are a handful of authors that I enjoy their stories strictly because they add humor to them. Although they are generally put under historical fiction or historical romance they seem to add some comedy in the mix and I definitely would consider it more historical romance comedy.  Not that category even exists but maybe … Continue reading Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano review

Reviews, Sales, Holidays and More

Well I just can't seem to get up to blogging every week like I used to. But oh well, such is how life works. We tend to go through seasons. And as we do, things change. Priorities change and some things aren't as important any more. I'm not saying you, my friends are not important, … Continue reading Reviews, Sales, Holidays and More
