Still Learning Something New

Welcome to my blog!  Here you are always welcome.  If it were possible, I’d offer you a cup of coffee or a Diet Coke (depending on the time of day), and we’d let my “big kids” watch the littles so we could hang out in the kitchen for a while and have a minute or two of grown-up time. Of course I know we’ll end up talking about the kids. But, just maybe there will be a little more to it than that.

For starters, I’ll tell you how the name for this blog came about.  Two reasons really…first, when ever I’m with a group of homeschooling moms, someone always makes the comment “I’m learning as much as the kids”.  So true. Through our 15 year homeschooling journey, I have learned  MUCH.  And well I should have..  This is my 4th time in high school!  1. Graduate of Lone Oak High School a long time ago. 2. Learned along side my son who has graduated from Hendrickson Covenant High School . 3.  Presently I am in both freshman and junior classes at Covenant High.(as my daughter calls her school) 4,  And I’m just starting  the learning journey over with my 2nd grader.

The other reason for naming my blog Still Learning Something New is because there is a MOMMA connection.  When I was just a little girl, my momma was always learning a new craft, starting a diy project, making up recipes….you get the idea. She lead scout troops, taught Sunday school, taught crafting… After I’d left home, she started up an after school program in which gave her opportunity to continue learning more and share what she knew. She went back to college when she was in her 60s.  She loved it.  She said it’s so important to always be around children and to always be learning something new. She’s in Heaven now and I’m sure she’s Still Learning Something New everyday.  Me too.
