Blogging Through the Alphabet I’ve always thought alphabet memes were fun, so when I found out that Marcy at Ben and Me was starting over on hers, I marked my calendar.

And I still missed the A week, because…

Read the title.

Busyness. Whoa. We started back to school, and I’m working part time, and it’s cross country season right now.

I read blogs that tout simplicity. And I do like simple.

Anna winning yesterday’s cross country meet!

And compared to the typical American family, I think our schedule is simple.

But homeschooling with 5 kids is not simple. No matter how you do it. Or at least it’s not for me and my 5 kids.

But we’re really off to a great year. The children’s schoolwork is going well. Anna has started back to violin lessons. And cross country season is in full swing. I even managed to price items for a consignment sale.

So right now, things are chaotic, and I’m tired.

But happy.

  1. Cute pictures. I look forward to reading more about your family — sometimes I feel like homeschooling three is too busy and I strive for more simplicity. I haven’t figured out how to that though. 😉

  2. Cute kiddos! Just having 5 kids sounds busy, but add in homeschooling and I think you are completely excused from missing “A” ;o)

  3. Nice pictures. I think busyness is different for each family. If it’s working for you, that’s all that matters. 🙂
