I'm trying to spend time doing important things...of the above three distractions, Rosalie is the only important one! I'm not swearing off Pinterest and Facebook, just determining to use them as tools, not time fillers. In my humble opinion, blogging is important because it provides a written record of our life as a family, it offers a way for a me to encourage other moms in schooling and homemaking, and it is an important tool for an author to test out material and ideas for future books.
I am officially an author. Or a co-author, actually. Kathy Lee and I wrote a great book, called "The Homegrown Preschooler" due out in April of 2013. Yesterday, I received the first edits from the publisher. They had already attached that first page, with all of the copyright info....I got a little thrill from seeing my name and "Library of Congress" on the same page. Thankfully, they didn't hack it up too bad, and we will be sending it back with corrections in the next few weeks. Here it is with it's tentative title/cover that we made up.
