Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Getting Ready!













Although we won't begin homeschooling for a couple more weeks, I prepared our learning area this past weekend. Our learning areas have evolved throughout the years, as has our enrollment, yet I still find joy and excitement in preparing a special place for learning. I am still finalizing lesson plans, another favorite of mine, but for the most part, we are all ready to begin a new year together!

Have a wonderful Monday in your part of the world, my friends.
Thanks for visiting!

  9. Setting up a new classroom every year was one of my very favorite parts of teaching- so fun to start new! And those brand new crayons!!!! Can you even handle it??? I'm not sure I could use those- they'd have to just be for decoration! :) Have a wonderful school year!!
