I think I need to explain...

Hi everybody,

I really think I need to explain what's going on in my life right now, mostly for the sake of my blog and followers.

We've been going through some really rough things this month...

My husband just had surgery yesterday, so blogging will be out of the question this week I guess.

So besides being a nurse right now we got the news that my daughters are going to be part of a wedding in a couple of months, so we have been trying to get ready for that, fitting dresses, shoes, hair, etc.

Also my older daughter (14) is flying to Ohio next month, so we are trying to get the tickets, and trying to set up schedules between Ohio and here (dropping her off and picking her up at the airports) and the scare of the swine flu being in Ohio now doesn't help either, I'll have to be alert, maybe she won't even fly.

I'm also looking for a high school for my older daughter (too long of a story to get into that) is just a complete mess on it's own.

I am also studying, trying to finish my Child Care training for next month so I can become a preschool teacher this coming school year, if I am lucky enough to find a job here in Florida.

Yeah :( So I guess everybody knows my secret now: I am not homeschooling my kids as everybody thought. (at least not for now lol)

I just love teaching. Sharing knowledge is the best thing I can do for everybody, specially for the little ones.

So I guess that answers one of the most popular question between homeschooling moms... I am not homeschooling in the summer, but I'll keep on doing fun things with my little one, and blogging as I do now (but more ofter if life lets me) until God knows when :)

Even if I become a preschool teacher, I would keep on blogging about it also, since it helps so many homeschoolers, who I admire A LOT, and also relaxes me to sit in the computer and get away from my everyday chores

So, here is a little piece of my life right now

I know things will get better, so please deal with me and my blog.

We are always doing new things with Jessica, is just that sometimes, like now, is not possible to take pictures and write about them.

But for though times like this I have come up with an idea to help my followers

I'm going to start posting some helpful resources, so please feel free to write me and let me know what are you going to be working on and I'll post some worksheets and resources on your request as much as possible.

I'm here to help :)


  1. You're so sweet! Thank you for sharing all of that. Bless your heart~You do have alot going on in your life.

    I will pray for you and your family.

    Dont worry about any of us! Just continue to focus on your family and pop in here when you can! We'll all be delighted to hear from you when you have freetime.

    Please keep us/me updated. You're such a sweet online friend.

  2. Im sorry you have so much going on. I admit I am sad that you won't be as active online but your family is so much more important. :)
    I look forward to when you do post.Take care!

  3. I hope your husband recovers quickly from his surgery!

    In the midst of the chaos try to make time for yourself! It is hard but if you are rested and calm the rest of the family will feel your strength and clam.

    By the way, I do not "home school" my kids but at the same time - I home school my kids. What I mean is - every moment you spend with your kids is an opportunity to impart knowledge and share an experience. I don't plan on officially home schooling my kids but I do not take for granted any time I am with them. I get the feeling you are the same way. We look for the teachable moments along the way :-) So don't feel bad...you DO home school your kids - every day!

    I will be thinking of you during this difficult time.

  4. Dear Clemencia,

    I wish you peace and joy as you try to slow down the roller coaster. Sometimes they can really get so crazy.

    I wish you luck with all that's going on and I have a feeling you will be a WONDERFUL preschool teacher.

  5. Clemencia - My prayers for you haven't stopped. God loves you!!

  6. I will miss your regular posts but look forward to everything you have to share. I will also be thinking of you during this challenging time in your life. I also have to second what Mama King said about homeschooling.

  7. Clemencia,
    Family comes first and we as your friends understand that. (((hugs)) Praying for you and your family during this time. May God carry you through your "storms of life" as He has carried me and my family in the past.

    God bless,
    your friends

  8. I'm sorry to hear life is crazy right now! Just take a deep breath and take it one step at a time! I really enjoy your blog and I don't think anyone cares you aren't homeschooling. I think a lot of parents enjoying doing activities witht their kids even if they attend traditional school.

    PS: I hope your husband feels better soon!
