It’s Not Too Late: Greenville, SC Great Homeschool Convention

The following post is sponsored by Great Homeschool Conventions. They are also, however, my favorite homeschool conventions to attend. As my own excitement for the Great Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati in April is building, I'm just a little jealous of all of the people that get to attend GHC in Greenville, South Carolina. It's not just the weather that must surely be warmer than where I … [Read more...]

7 Things My Kids Don’t Get about My Childhood

7 Things My Kids Don't Get about My Childhood

The other day while I was in the post office, I suddenly remembered that this time of year used to mean lots of people stopping by the post office or local libraries seeking out tax forms.  I realized that, unless things really changed for some reason, heading to a library or post office for tax forms would be something that my kids would never do as adults. It also made me start thinking, … [Read more...]

10 Lent and Holy Week Activities for Catholic Families Printable

Lent and Holy Week Activities for Catholic Families

As I mentioned earlier this week when I posted the 10 March Activities for Catholic Families Printable, I decided this year to not add any Lenten activities to the monthly printables.  That way, they can be used again next year, whereas adding in Lenten activities can make the monthly printables a little less evergreen, since the dates change each year. To make up for no Lenten activities on … [Read more...]

10 March Activities for Catholic Families Printable

Activities for Catholic Families in March

This month's Activities for Catholic Families printable wasn't quite as easy as some other months have been.  I made an attempt to omit anything Lenten while making this activity printable, and let me tell you - that makes up a whole lot of possible March activities. Now, you may say, "Why would you omit all of the Lenten activities?"  Well, it's because very shortly, I'll be sharing a … [Read more...]

Have Five Minutes? Here are Eight Tasks You Can Tackle!

8_Tasks_5_Minutes

I don't know if you're like me, but I waste a lot of time.  Really, I mean a lot of time.  I don't mean to, but I do.  One of the things that I usually overlook are those small pockets of time that tend to pop up. Five minutes?  Oh good - I'll play some Words with Friends. What if I said, "Five minutes?  Oh good - I'll go unload the dishwasher." Check out the rest of my post at The Happy … [Read more...]

How Much Does a Disney World Vacation Cost?

How much does a Disney World trip cost

Since we've been taking Disney World vacations the last few years, I've been asked the same question several times.  It usually comes prefaced by a very kind, "If you don't mind saying..." or something like that, but then is finally followed by "How much does a Disney World vacation cost?" Often this is asked because people tell me that they are considering a trip and want to know what to … [Read more...]

10 Ways to Achieve Your Goals

10 Ways to Achieve Your Goals

Between trying to get my 2013 business finances in order and then also trying (with a great deal of help from Eric) to move all of my important computer files and programs from my Dell laptop to a MacBook Pro, I hadn't put a whole lot of thought into a post for this week's List it Tuesday.  In fact, I haven't given blogging a whole lot of thought, in general, this week, though every thing I was … [Read more...]

The One Where We Get Away from the Snow and Go to Disney World

minnie

This post was supposed to be last week's List it Tuesday.  But, do you know what?  I was just way too exhausted from getting home from our trip to Disney World to even think about trying to process some pictures and get them ready to post. This week, however, I'm all set for the List it Tuesday where we enjoyed nine days in Disney World.  Let me just say though - if you have ever wondered … [Read more...]

Just a Tiny Owl 50 percent off sale

~ 1 ~ I have decided (at least I think) that I don't really want to go do art shows/craft fairs anymore.  So, since I'm hoping to move out some of my inventory, I not only lowered all of the prices in my Etsy shop by a considerable amount, I also have a limited time 50% off coupon code available! Just pop over to my Etsy shop, Just a Tiny Owl, and use the code JATO50.  That will give you … [Read more...]

Wait. What Do You Mean It’s Tuesday?

We just got back from a 10 day trip to this favorite vacation spot, and I may or may not have forgotten that today was Tuesday.  So, better late than never, here's this week's List it Tuesday link up.  I'll have to join in next week.  Kris has up her post with the link up already, and it's about ideas for celebrating Valentine's Day with teens and tweens. An InLinkz Link-up … [Read more...]
