We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

My classes with Grantham for MGT 515 and MGT 525 lead me to numerous educational websites and technological online weeklies.  I believe this is why on weekends when my husband is not working, I don't even pay attention to a computer or the news.  Sometimes I think I read too much then again I am a seeker of knowledge so, if I am not learning I feel I am wasting my time.

Watching my sons is the best learning experience because I love they way they think and interpert the world   Both of them crack me up with their descriptions of the world around them. I love my life and feel truly blessed. This year instead of an my reading list, I will keep track of the books I read with my boys.  I can not wait.  I got set of Captian Underpants and can not wait to see what those adventures will lead us.
