Scripture of the day:

Recipe to share:

This is by far one of my favorite quick and yummy dishes to prepare for my family, especially during the chilly months.

Taco Soup (serves 4-6)
1 lb. ground beef or Morningstar veggie crumbles (I’m a vegetarian)
1 medium onion
1 can red kidney beans
1 can corn
1 can Rotel tomatoes with chilies (original, mild or hot)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 packet of Ranch dressing
1 packet of Taco seasoning mix

Sauté ground beef /crumbles and onion in skillet until brown. Drain if necessary.
Add all of the remaining ingredients without draining. Stir and simmer for approximately
20 min. Viola!

A new "year"

Scripture of the day: "You are a letter from Christ,the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts."--2Corinthians 3:3

It has been quite a while since I have posted. Life has been sooo busy. I've decided to continue this blogging journey...

We have just completed our first six weeks of school for this year. I have decided to follow a 6 weeks on and 1 week of school schedule this year. I need the week to relax, catch up and regroup since I am teaching an 8th grader and I have a two yr old toddler running around.

One thing that I find challenging is how to meet the demanding needs of my toddler and keep up with my 8th grader and all of her reading, assignments, and correcting papers. If any homeschool veterans have helpful tips, they would greatly be appreciated.
