Wait, is summer already gone??

I feel like summer2014 just flew by! We were in Israel the first half of May,

then TX with family for the 2nd half.

June, we stayed around Tuscaloosa. I hosted the #omstrong #yoga challenge with my friend Anna #momstrong.

Aside from that, we just rested from our crazy May travel schedule.

July was travel packed again - - went to my folks for the first week, then down to the Gulf for the 3rd week.

And August, we started back to SCHOOL! A little worried at the pace of the summer. I have to ask: does each summer begin to go by exponentially faster every year? I know that is impossible. Yet, why do I suddenly have a 3rd, 5th, and 7th grader?

Now that I have, it's hard to keep up with ziondreamer....

I am thinking that perhaps I should separate content - - keep homeschoolqueen all about school and parenting, then let ziondreamer be everything outside of that... what do you think? I started because I have particular parenting and schooling passions which I want to give special attention to. Yet, my life with dogs, yoga, livestock, and home-improvement need to fit in there somewhere. Do people often carry two different blogs, depending on the topic? Not sure how to navigate.

Yoga with Kids!

3 times a week, the children and I rise and meet one another in the living room or outside for morning yoga and meditation. Last Thursday, we invited other children to join us. It was so much fun! 9 children ranging from 2 to 12. The energy in the room was precious and pure.

I have a pre-teen!

Happy Birthday to Canon James Alexander.

This guy is 12!!
Canon has been such a joy in our lives. These 12 years have been a flash flood. Canon is generous, compassionate, helpful and cheerful! I am so thankful to be his mama. He teaches me everyday about kindness, justice and friendship!

Here are some snapshots of the last year in the life of this awesome fella.
