It's been raining here since yesterday, and the weather has finally turned chilly! I have to admit that it's a welcome change after the long Texas summer - but my boys are sad to see swimming weather fade.
Maybe it's the changing of the seasons, but I've been inspired to change many things around our home, hopefully for the better! I have a newly awakened sense of curiosity and am avidly reading and contemplating many things, something I haven't felt the urge to do in years. It's a nice feeling! I have to smile as I consider, however, that what I am researching and reading and contemplating has nothing to do with the detached and academic pursuits of my earlier years and everything to do with family, education, religion, and wellness. The seasons of my own life are changing, it seems!
When I realized that I wanted to learn more about homeschooling and the philosophy of education, frugal living and family finances, and herbalism and natural wellness, I realized that the papers flying from my printer would quickly overwhelm the little corner of our home known as Mommy's "office". With the end of the calendar year in view, I set about creating a binder organization system or household journal. It allows me to keep track of all our different "irons in the fire" -- all in one place. I love it!!! The best part about it is that it is totally customizable and infinitely expandable, exactly what I wanted.
Here's to organization and the start of a new season!
