My Poor Neglected Blog

I have every intention of updating here. No really, I do.  I write posts in my head and somewhere between head and keyboard they disappear.

Instagram has killed my blog.  If you follow me there you know that I post a mini blog several times a week.  And then it seems like there is nothing to say here.

March has poofed and April is almost over.  The passage of time never fails to astound me.  Was it always like this?  Or is this a ‘I’m getting older’ sort of thing.  Although Keilee has always been aware of how quickly time passes.

Our days are filled to the brim with learning and living.  Spring makes both of us feel so much better.

So here are a few random pictures.  Catching up is impossible but for nostalgia purposes I am posting a few things here. (Keilee and I love to go back to the month we are in and see what we were doing 2, 4 or 6 years ago!)

In some EXCITING news Alpha Omega Publishing picked Keilee’s Bringing Smart Back Instagram accounts as one of the “Top 10 Instagram Accounts Homeschoolers Should Follow”.  She woke up with about 120 new followers and we didn’t know what happened.  She was GIDDY.

She has been working hard on her YouTube Channel.  Here is the video she did on Poetry Tea Parties.  I loved it.

She contacted some businesses last week about sponsoring a giveaway and 2 responded that they would!  Yesterday in her video she told about her first contest which was a Year Membership to Molly Green Magazine!!  You have to enter with your Instagram account but it’s a great prize.

Here is her video with Nature Crafts.  I hope you can find something you and your kiddos can do together.  We especially LOVED the Nature Weaving!

More fun.
1. Picnic in the park after church Sunday.
2. One of her nature crafts.
3. Putting some ‘bling’ on her tshirt for kid’s church.
4. Walking in the rain in the woods.
5. Tea Party Fun
6. Before an Elsa party
7. Art Journaling outside


Here is a picture of Keilee and her sidekick onstage at Kid’s Church.  Thankfully someone took this and posted it since I never get to see her ‘perform’.  They just started a new series called “Camp WannaStay”.  She ADORES doing this and teaching her 20 4-5th grade girls small group.

And here is my favorite picture of the week:

This weekend is slammed packed.  We have a women’s conference at church Friday night.  I am attending and Keilee is keeping the 3 year olds.  Saturday she is Elsa at the bowling alley and then we are celebrating my birthday and Sunday is Baptism at church.

I hope everyone who still reads my poor blog is doing great.  I am going to try to catch up as soon as possible on all the cool things you have all been doing!

Homeschooling Rocks!

  1. You know, reading through this I was struck by a thought. No matter what Keelie ends up doing with her life, no matter which path she follows I just get a sense that she will be successful, happy and full of joy. You two are fab and it is so lovely to have a catch up post to read <3

  2. My kids adored Keilee’s poetry tea video. 🙂 She is such a beautiful girl, just like her mom, inside and out. I absolutely LOVE the picture of her with the yellow umbrella and your favorite pic as well. She is so photogenic! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ll have to think about Instagram. I just don’t know what other kind of social media I’ll like (All I know is that I can’t stand Facebook). My kids will be sure to watch Keilee’s fun with nature video this week. 🙂

  3. IG killed my blog too. My girls want me to blog but it seems I have lost my voice. It’s funny though, because we love reading each other’s blogs so much.

  4. Wow! I had no idea Keilee was doing all this cool stuff! I followed her on YouTube! I’m trying to get more into instagram! Yiu guys have a great week!

  5. It’s great to catch up with you on the blog. I get so bogged down in Instagram that I quit logging in. It was just one more thing I didn’t have time to do.

  6. I might look into instagram. I am afraid to add anything else to my plate. Keeping up with TOS reviews has taken a lot of effort this school year. It is always lovely to catch up with you all.
    Blessings, Dawn

  7. My blog is suffering the same fate as of late, and I don’t even have Instagram to blame. I have just been too busy to do anything lately. It is more important to fully live the days than to be caught up in hours of recording it. Thanks for the lovely update, however. ❤ See you on Instagram!

  8. I love when you blog. I don’t know how to find you on instagram.

    I follow Keilee on YouTube, and can actually show her videos to ‘my’ work kids. I always know they are safe for them to see and they learn a lot from them. 🙂
