Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

Bringing Tricks and Treats to the Ronald McDonald House

Our homeschool group coordinated two events for the Ronald McDonald House this week with one group participating in their Fall Festival on Thursday and another hosting Share a Meal on Halloween night. We chose to go on Halloween since we thought it might be a hard night for them to get volunteers on a holiday.

In case you're not familiar with Ronald McDonald House, they provide families with children in local hospitals with affordable accommodations within walking distance of the hospital. We've had quite a few friends use their facilities and have seen first-hand what a wonderful resource they provide to families during difficult times.

We try to participate in Share a Meal a few times a year, bringing dinner for the families currently staying at the house. Last night, five SLC families cooked up a dinner of chili, cornbread, salad and cookies - along with some Halloween "treats" of course. And my little magician (Noah) was happy to provide the "tricks".

It was a full house, and we enjoyed talking to the families - many of whom came in costume. It was definitely the highlight of our very happy Halloween!
