A Homeschool Prom




 This year's "formal" turned out so great! 
 The teens in our co-op picked out the theme "A Masquerade in Paris." 

 I enjoyed making the masks.  (I adore glitter.)

The teens are gearing up for the Prom this weekend.

Down and Dirty Chick Starting


I was at my local Tractor Supply Company the other day picking up some duck food and I was so surprised by the overwhelming number of poultry products.

A Few Random Things




1. There's a deer leg in my front yard outside my window by my computer.  It still has fur.  There's one in the driveway, too.  I don't have any idea where they came from.

People Get Ready!

I just love Easter!
It's my all time favorite holiday!
My teenagers and I are working on a drama/dance thing for Easter Sunday with the teens from church.  I'm loving it, too, because I absolutely love bringing the arts into worship and outreach.  And I love dancing.  And I'm really sore.  So, that's good, too.

Here's a few awesome pictures from my desktop.  We're creating a video to go with our dance.  If you've never heard the song "People Get Ready" by Misty Edwards... google it.  It's cool!  Here's a section of the lyrics....
