Take A Trip

Today I'd like you to stop by Peanut Butter & Jelly Boats and read Sheryl's latest post regarding homeschooling. I don't homeschool our children, but have really been feeling the calling for it more & more everyday. This post pretty much explains exactly what I've been thinking and feeling...

I'll be taking a trip to the grocery store today, as usual, and I wanted to tell you about Tasty Vegan, a new blog Ashlee started with great vegan recipes. Might give you an idea of just what a vegan eats!! This week I'll be making the Glazed Seitan Stir-Fry and Chick-Un Noodle Soup... yum!

  1. I think I was reading your blog at the same time you were reading mine :). Thanks for sharing the homeschooling thoughts. It's a good perspective on it, especially since I tend to be sort of anti- homeschooling because of my experience. I think you would be great at it and I bet your boys would really excel. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do. Go Colts!

  2. Yes, it was a lovely post! I left a comment. :o)

    Do you go grocery shopping every day? I can't seem to decide if we do better going more often, or less often. Produce doesn't keep long but I also seem to buy more when I go more often. Maybe I should just take a small amount of cash each time to avoid overspending.

    Ignore me, I'm thinking out loud again!

  3. Oh Steph...I am totally with you. I loved Sheryl's post. I am praying fervently about next year. It is the hardest decision. Thanks for linking her. : ) Hope everyone is feeling better today.

  4. Thanks for linking to that- what a great perspective! ... I've really open the forum on homeschooling more... but I'm starting to think if we stick around here it's probably our most reasonable option...

    And thanks for the plug! :)

  5. I love the IDEA of home schooling...I just don't feel confident enough to DO it! To be responsible for my childrens education scares the you know what out of me! I haven't even finished college! LOL

  6. I can TOTALLY see you homeschooling. I think about it a lot too. I guess I just need to jump in or quit thinking about it. I am a chicken about it though.

  7. You'd be good at it. As for me, I'm not so sure. If my boys were having problems I'd pull them out and do the best I could. But I like the idea of going to school too. And they have a lot of fun at school. Neither one of them would want to be homeschooled at this point. It's probably easier if you start out at home in the beginning.

    And I've read Ashlee's recipes. They look really good to me. I'm going to try a couple myself, and I'm by no means eating a vegan diet.

  9. I would still like to know more about vegan eating. I just don't know where to buy some of the stuff. We don't have a natural food store within a reasonable distance. I'm already driving 30 miles to get to Super Wal-mart which I'm not happy about, but there the only ones with organic food!!! Argh!

  10. I would LOVE to be a homeschooler, really, I would. I just don't think I have it in me. I was the world's biggest slacker when it came to school and I don't know how I couldn't pass that right on to my girls.

    Luckily we live (at least, we do currently) in an area with an amazing array of shool choices. Cetainly one of them has got to be better than being schooled by an ambivalent mama ;)

    Oh yeah, the vegan blog is fantastic. Just made one of her recipes for dinner last night and it was a huge hit!

  11. I think I'd be good at homeschooling BUT there aren't any other homeschoolers within 100 miles of us. Literally. So that's keeping me from doing it, sadly.

  12. Thanks for the link! This is such a topic for moms right now! I think Tricia was able to put 2 cents in for the both of us!

  13. Hello! I found your blog through Alli's. I am going to have a baby in about 5 weeks, and I want to get a sling for her. What do you recommend? If you could leave a comment on my blog, that would be great ;-)

  14. Homeschooling is also something that is constantly on my mind. My oldest is going on 3. I see so many benefits to homeschooling. Where we lived in MI, I'd NEVER send my ds to the public schools. Catholic schools were only OK-the ones that were actually GOOD cost around $10K/year! So that's when i started thinking of homeschooling.

    Where we live now, the schools are much better. I'm still more inclined to choose private over public, but not at the expense of HAVING to vaccinate my son accoridng to state recommendations. (NOT requirements!)

    What a good post/link. From how I've gotten to know you thru your blog, I can see you doing a wonderful job w/ homeschooling. Many of my friends were homeschooled. Common among them all-no one regretted it. :)
