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.

Free Lapbook Templates & Curriculum

Okay, so I said I was done on here for the night . . . but I also said that I can never leave well enough alone, and that always seems to win out. In playing around with the new Independence Day / 4th of July lapbook file, I thought it would be good to post some instructions for working with File Factory. As of right now, this is the easiest way to make the PDFs available for download, but a better method will be coming as part of the "extreme makeover".

Start by selecting a link under Curriculum to Share for the file you'd like to download. This will take you to File Factory, a third-party site that stores these files for me. From there, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, and click the button that says "Download Now". It will ask you a million which ways if you'd like to upgrade to a premium account, but you don't need to do this. The basic download is free, but they do make you wait a whole 30 seconds for it. :)

Okay, that's it. Going to bed now - I wish! Headed for more coffee and back on the computer to work. I have less than 90 minutes if I'm going to make my "in bed by midnight" deadline!
