Homeschool planning

Memorial service

I’ll be gone for a few days, to attend my grandfather’s memorial service and visit with family back home. Unfortunately, I’m staying with my mom (that’s not the unfortunate part!

Filling someone’s bucket is doing something to make them happy and dipping in their bucket means that you are doing something that makes them unhappy. … Continue reading

Strawberry picking

We’ve been keeping busy since school ended this week. We attended a park day with our new homeschool group, built a tent (0r tents) in our living room and went strawberry picking. It’s been a pretty good week. Here are our strawberry picking pics! Some of us were picking and some were eating. It was … Continue reading

Heavenly peanut butter cake pops

I love chocolate and peanut butter. Ok, I like chocolate and almost anything. But these just may be my favorite cake pop recipe. It’s so easy, too.

These cake pops are amazing. I turned a simple but divine peanut butter cake recipe into cake pops and then dipped them in thick chocolate. Fortunately, my hubby took all but a dozen to work so I didn’t have to eat them all. Here are the pics. I’ll share the recipe soon!
