I've got it. I've tried ignoring it.... telling myself it will go away, but I've been changed. I miss seeing the world. I miss sitting on the edge of my comfort zone and trying new things. I miss spending every second of the day with my family. I miss looking across the dinner table every night and staring at the loving faces of our grandparents. I miss the shows and dancing in the middle of our meal. I miss the adventure and the diversity. I've got it bad.... the world travel fever. Will it ever go away?

I have also started a facebook community for our local homeschooling friends. I hope to help us connect, share experiences, and discuss the challenges and joys of homeschooling. I also hope to plan a few fun activities though out the year to give our kiddos the opportunity to get together. We've struggled to adjust socially as we transitioned from public to homeschooling. We have a hard time finding families that homeschool and that we click with. I'm sure we aren't the only ones feeling isolated in our educational journey, so maybe this group can help introduce families and create friendships.

Little Miss M was spotlight at church today. A few weeks ago they sent home a 'getting to know you' paper, so I asked Maddi the questions, wrote in her responses, and sent it back. At church they have all of the kids stand up and as the questions are read, they sit down if the answer doesn't describe them. Eventually only the spotlight kid is standing. I think its a really cute way for the kids to get to know eachother and recognize similarities that they have. Here are her answers:
All about Madison at age 3. I have 4 people in my family. My favorite food is Rosies Mexican food. My favorite thing about primary is being a sunbeam. I chose the right by praying. One of my favorite things to do is watch Beauty and the Beast. My favorite scripture story is Noah and the animals on the boat. The most important thing I've learned in life so far is to wear a helmet with my princess bike.
