Supermom Reviews
This is where I post all the links of products that have been sent to me.

I must deeply apologize to those companies that have sent me a product but I didn't get around to posting a review on this blog The Adventures of Supermom®.  All I can say is things got super busy, laptop being dead for months - coming back to life only to DIE A SLOW PAINFUL death after a month making me lose everything {yes, everything}, getting a job outside the house at a bowling alley {where I met amazing people that are now friends}, WRIST SURGERY where I was in a cast for 6 weeks and then a brace, then pulling our kids out of their private Montessori school so I could homeschool them.

Summer vacation.  Bad back.  Yadda yadda yadda.

Or is that yada yada yada??

WHEW!!!

I have been wanting to just make a list with links so you could check these wonderful companies out.  Tell them Supermom sent ya.  {insert big smile here}

* Element Snacks

They sent an assortment of delicious rice cakes.  Gluten free. Non GMO, No artificial ingredients.

They are the perfect treat and come in so many different flavors for every craving.

Homeschool ~ 9 Weeks
{Not for the timid and weak.}

Michelle Lee at The Adventures of Supermom

We've done it!!!!!   We've been homeschooling for 9 weeks {tomorrow}.  After tomorrow we will have 9 days off.  Woot woot.  We are trying the 3 weeks on 1 week off schedule right now. 

It's been an adventure for sure.  We have learned what works for us and what we needed to change because it did not work for us.

Homeschool is not for the weak!!  I've had to drag myself out of bed on a few mornings for school and even make myself finish school after our lunch break!  I even had to teach recovering from wrist surgery.  While sick!  I thought stay at home parents didn't get any rest.  I was totally wrong.  Stay at home parents that homeschool their kids get ZERO ZERO ZERO rest.  ZEROOOOO!

Thankfully Superdad took on making dinner at night for me.  I cook every once in awhile but he mostly holds the fort down.  {Without feeding them cold cereal or almond butter sandwiches every night.}  I don't know how he does it.  I'd sprinkle some cereal on the dining room table myself.  Ha ha.  I'm joking....sort of...

I know that everyone who homeschools has a different schedule and what may work for someone may not for the next person that comes around.  Thankfully I have The Well-Trained Mind book to look back on for reference and a couple Facebook groups and some great FB friends to bother when I want to ask a question.

Real quick I thought I'd share my schedule because I am always being asked.

Library Book Find
{A beautiful French book. Le Bandeau by Félicien Hampsaur}

Superdad started it!

Buying used books at the library for a DEAL!  A buck for hardcover and fifty cents for a paperback.

Told you it was a deal.

So every once in awhile I scope out the books and I have found some amazing ones!  I don’t even mind if I cannot read them because they are in another language.

This little French beauty has tickled me pink.  I love it!  LOVE IT!  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

It was written in 1916 by Félicien Hampsaur and it includes the most beautiful pictures in it.  Nude pics.  Beautiful nude pics.  Drawn pictures not nude photographs.  That’s what makes it extra special to me.

I thought I shouldn’t keep it all to myself so I wanted to share a few pictures with you.

Ooma ~ 4 Tips to Keeping Your Home Safe During Holiday Travel

Ooma SystemTraveling for the holidays is something my family always looks forward to. There's no better way to close out the year than by hitting the road, singing holiday songs at the top of our lungs, spending time with family and friends, and eating delicious food.

But if you're anything like me, whenever you travel, a little voice in the back of your mind says, "Is my home safe? What if a fire breaks out? Could a pipe burst? Could a thief break in while I'm away?" So even though I love holiday travel, I'm never able to completely relax.

So I breathed a sigh of relief when I was contacted by Ooma—a leading internet home communications hub—with the opportunity to deliver 4 tips for keeping your home safe and secure when you're on the road this holiday. Before you lock your doors and hop in the car, make sure you follow these steps to ensure your home is safe.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions
Isn't that how the saying goes?

I have all these great "intentions" and they just never get finished because either I procrastinate or I just don't feel like doing it.


I want to blog about something the kids did.

Or tell you about my granddaughter.
