What we've been working on...

Besides raising our 6 peeps, a flock of various poultry, dogs, rabbits, and until recently, goats, Mr. D and I have been hard at work launching our new homeschool website, GoGo Homeschool.  This website was Mr. D's brainchild and we've been working on it since the summer of 2014.  It's been a lot of hard work, a few tears and a lot of fun!  We launched GoGo Homeschool in May of 2015 at our local homeschool convention and received a great response.

Our whole mission behind GoGo Homeschool is to provide an outlet for homeschooling families all around the US and world to support each other in their homeschooling endeavors.  We know all too well how difficult it can be to provide all the educational opportunities we want to on a limited budget.  We decided if people can raise $35,000+ to make potato salad on other crowdfunding websites, then homeschooling families should have a place to raise the funds they need to go on great adventures, provide lessons to budding musicians and artists or buy special curriculum for the new homeschool year.   We can't wait to begin hearing stories of how GoGo Homeschool has helped other homeschooling families!

Hopefully back to blogging....

Whew!  August of 2013 is the last time I've blogged.  So very much has happened in the last 2 years. It's impossible to even begin to remember all that has occurred, but there are a few things that stand out!

In April of 2013 Miss J and I went on an amazing trip to Paris with my dad.  It was an incredible experience.  One of these days I will get pictures posted of our time there.  I've been fortunate to have experienced traveling abroad when I was young and it was wonderful to share that with Miss J.  I can't wait to share the same experience with my other children!

Shortly thereafter we discovered we were expecting our 6th baby and Mr. K-Love joined us in early December of 2013.  Whoa!  What a huge surprise and joy.  He's pretty much been running the roost since his arrival and has thrown us all for a loop.  I would update you on what happened in 2014, but my recollection is groggy.  The postpartum recovery after K-Love was long and I think more difficult than with any of the other kids.

We had a long winter and looked forward to spring.  I spent a lot of time through the winter reading up on minimalism, simplicity and life management.  Nourishing Minimalism is a blog that I've loved, since she is a homeschooling mama of 6 as well.  Adding a 6th child had thrown my usual systems, already ineffective in some ways, completely off.  We needed major regrouping.  I went through every room and hauled off van loads of miscellaneous and extraneous stuff to help minimize the mess making ability.  It has felt so good to see less and less stuff and only have things that are useful to us right now and make sense for our family.

We've had a lot of other exciting and sometimes tough things happen since the new year, too.  I'll spend some time blogging about those in the next few weeks, I hope!

I'm looking forward to sharing more about our homeschooling, homesteading and homekeeping adventures and misadventures!

This is K-Love, the newest member of our clan!
