2017's Word of the Year

2017 word of the year- Enjoy- I will strive to relax and enjoy life more in 2017. My goal is not to get stressed about little details but to enjoy the things that God has given me, big and small.

Pun Intended

Many, many years ago I listened to a talk from Diana Waring and she was stating the need for humor in our lives, that it was a vital piece of our education. I remembered this yesterday when my 12 year old was telling me about how much he likes Carl Azuz on CNN Student News because he always ends each broadcast with a pun. I was a bit startled because I realized that we have never even talked about puns, but he's learned about them by watching this program every day. This little bit of wittiness has added humor to my sons' life but it is also increasing his understanding of speech because sometimes we have to discuss what it actually means.

Math problems

I had to do a double take on this one to figure out just exactly what my son was thinking. After we talked about it we both had a good laugh and a talk about thinking through directions before we actually do the work. ;)

Linky Love!

My life seems to keep me so busy and yet other than keeping up the house and teaching the boys I really haven't been doing anything. School seems to occupy so much more of my time this year. We are getting a lot done, but I feel exhausted by the end of the day. I don't have time to keep up with friends and I have even been too tired to read. Something needs to change.

I did sit down and make a to do list for the week and tried to plan menus. It's hard when you're tired because nothing sounds good at all.

Meanwhile here are a few links I wanted to share:
