This week's wrap-up is absolutely full...primarily because I neglected to post a wrap-up last week! So, it's two, two, two weeks in one!

Question: Are any of you from Cincinnati? Do you live anywhere near there? Do you know someone who does? Consider this your official invitation to come support this band of great young people with a great message. (This band of four are all Christians, and all homeschoolers/homeschool grads.) Anyone who wants to help me get some Cincy homeschoolers or church groups out to support them on Nov. 20th, please contact me!)
Then last week and part of this week, I was featured as an "Ask the Expert" on the CafeMom site! The topic was homeschooling, of course, and one thing I learned is that being an "expert" basically means that if you don't know the answer, you know someone who does! LOL! My friend Sandy, who worked as a reading specialist for the school system here in Nashville before she became a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom, was able to help me with some of the tough questions on reading issues. Other than that, it was a great ten days of answering questions from moms who are doing their best to provide their kids with a quality education at home. There were lots of questions about how to homeschool older kids with little ones running around...oh my, I remember those days! Coming next week, I'll be posting a Mom's Tip of the Day: Homeschool Edition! I'm excited to post some tips that are exclusively for homeschool moms, so please pass the word, and follow this blog so you don't miss any!
My boys spent their fall break helping me paint our kitchen cabinets! Now there's some valuable life skills for you! I've been thinking about painting them for a looooong time, and I am so glad we finally did it! My guys work cheap--pizza and a couple of new CD's are a good trade but, quite honestly, don't even come close to touching the value of their time and energy spent in helping me. I'm so thankful for my two guys! (Pictures still to come!)
Hope you have a great weekend! Make some time to visit more of the posts on the Weekly Wrap-Up--this week hosted by Jamie while our dear Kris is having the time of her life at the Relevant Conference!
