So - what have we been up to for 2 months?

So I'm sure it's obvious to my millions of adoring fans that Heritage Academy hasn't had a blog post in over two long months. Though I thought it would escape notice, a few have been wondering "What in the world has become of mom24 and her brood of homeschooled kiddos?"

I wish I could explain simply my absence from the bloggosphere that I've come to enjoy and need so much. But really, I think that real life and family priorities just got in the way of posting. First, my dh was gracious (and slightly evil) enough to introduce me to facebook. I now call FB my arch nemesis for how easy it is to pop into and waste time in. On top of that, I have joined a weight loss accountability group which meets on Thurs nights as well as a women's bible study on Friday nights. Dh is at an inductive study group on Tues, Jefferson has karate on Mondays & Wednesdays. This schedule adds up to not much evening time for homeschooling and personal interaction with the hubbs. And we all know about the illnesses and regular drudgery of February. But the real kicker for this poor little blog is my attempt to get to bed by 9:30 so I can make it to the gym at 0'dark hundred at least 3 times per week. This leaves my brain drained and body pooped by 8:30!

With all this "life" happening, my brain cannot seem to focus enough to type up a post. But we are accomplishing a lot and trudging through the wintry blahs, so I really do want to return to my bloggy journaling. I don't care about keeping readers, but I just want a record of our homeschooling journey. I DO care about the blogs that I read regularly (which, of course, I haven't in 2 months) because I find all you women to be so encouraging, funny, and helpful in this journey. I will be making sure to check that g.reader out more regularly so I'm not missing out on the rest of my bloggy buddies!

With that said, I'll leave with a few photos of our life over our absence:

I have checked to see if you updated your blog EVERY DAY since "silence is bliss"--glad to see that you found some time to do this--I know you love it a lot!

Welcome back! I missed you too!

That was a lovely photo of Jefferson with you on the couch. He looks heaps like you around the eyes.

My how the kids have grown!! It sounds like you've been busy doing some good things. I'd love to hear about how your daughter is coming along these days. I think of her often as I'm doing school with mine.

So good to see you again girl! I am glad all is well.

Life gets busy and sounds like you have been busy with some great things. Keep it in balance as you come back to the blog world :)

So thrilled to hear about your daughter's progress!
