First Day ~ October

I am linking up with Nicole @ Journey to Josie again this month. You can join us too, each month. Just snap photos of your activities for the first day of the month and link up with Nicole. Our first day of October was an abnormal one. Here it is.

My little boy's lunch of pb&j (my 6'3", almost 18 year old little boy), made lovingly by his mama.

Had to finish up a review for the Schoolhouse Review Crew

My favorite Bible verse. Today was a day I needed to repeat it to myself over and over.

All ready for my child support trial. Feeling good!

The courthouse where I spent 7 years of my career. I hate that place.

The trial's over. Hallelujah! Things went WELL!! That's my good lookin' dad right there. He turns 65 today!

The torrential rains we endured driving home and on our way to Brynne's volleyball game.

My girl looks like an athlete.

She has really improved her serving this year. She is the bomb!

She really enjoys playing sports with her friends.

Late night dinner after the volleyball game. Kyndal and I hadn't eaten since before lunch.

What a perfect way to end the night. My man Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds.

I looked at this several times during the trial to remind myself that God had this. And he did.


  1. Wonderful how everything turned out. I have been praying for you - I had one this spring and he ended up being a no-show, so the attorney requested the judgment be entered. Phew! So happy it is over and praying for a wonderful outcome for you as well. Loved the peak into your day!

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 1: "Rebels" Lesson Plans

Here it is ... the first installment of our American History lesson plans using "America: The Story of Us" as our spine. We are currently on Episode 6 and I anticipate us at least getting through Episode 10 by the end of the school year. I hope that you find these posts helpful as you plan your lessons.

The first episode of America: The Story of Us is "Rebels". We spent three weeks on this unit.

We started reading Blood on the River by Elisa Lynn Carbone. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (** highly recommend).

We watched Episode 1, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words. These can be printed by going here. The Episode Guides are down the left hand column on the site.

All "notebooking pages" are printed from Advanced World HistoryVol. 2 from Hold that Thought!

All "America's Heritage" references are materials printed from America's Heritage: An Adventure in Lib…
