I don't have a title

I have not written for a while. Just from lack of time and trying to organize my thoughts. I have a lot to share, but couldn't figure out how to say it without it sounding like a "look at me" post. So I'll start with the denial from the publication. Although they were very kind and encouraging, this one is not a go.

I am filling the Elementary Coordinator for the next two years, unless I get impeached before then, for our homeschool group. I'm really enjoying this so far. I like event planning. When I worked at the state headquarters for Kansas Farm Bureau, it was one event after the other. Then when I worked for LaZBoy it was a lot of the same. This stuff comes easily for me. People. Get togethers. Parties. It is good timing. I will have 3 in elementary this year. We have 30 new families that joined CHESS this year. I am guessing we will have around 120 families total, maybe more. My heart is to welcome these new families in and hopefully for them to feel that they are not an island by themselves but that especially in the community we live in that there are plenty of others out there that can offer wisdom, advise and most of all compassion and understanding.

I've been working on putting together some things for the fall and are praying they will not only be learning opportunities but ones to build relationships and memories. So far, there is a tour and game planned for The Naturals and a tour of Prairie Grove Battlefield that I've been working on. There is a lot of interest in the Keepers of the Faith program this year. I would like to start with something I feel comfortable teaching on and pray that other families will volunteer and follow suit. I think I'll start with a cake decorating class since this has been my latest skill I've learned. And it's fun.

Speaking of cakes. I've had orders for 4 cakes now. What a blessing!

I am going to be speaking at the first MUMS meeting of the year. (This is our group of homeschool moms that get together monthly.) I've tried not to think about it too much yet, as I know what I'm sharing and feel good about that. It's just a lot of responsibility to share with ladies anytime. I want my message to be uplifting and encouraging in all ways. It is also a little unnerving because it seems like there is a larger crowd the first couple of meetings. Hopefully I won't go blank or worse black out!

Other than that, life as normal as you can get with 4 kids and a business in your home and trying to homeschool continues. I'm still striving to make noticable progress on that list of things I want to see improved upon. :)

I'm excited about you speaking for MUMs! I'll be there!

I'm also excited that you will be the elementary coordinator!! I don't know how much I'll participate in (still have one napper and all,) but I love having the opportunities!!

You are the perfect person for this job! Impeached- ha!
