After "School" Snacks with Bagel Bites

Hi! It's Jilly. This summer I have been thinking about possibly homeschooling in the Fall. I have lots of reasons why I'd like to homeschool, which I won't go into now, but anyway... we're still trying to decide if it's the right thing for our family. So, I'm trying to have "school" everyday during the summer to see if I'm even going to be able to teach them and get any schoolwork done!

Today I told the kids that after they finished some of their schoolwork we could go outside and have a snack in the backyard. That seemed to motivate them, especially when I told them I was making Bagel Bites! #AfterSchoolSnacks

Peace Out

Hi! It's Jilly. I feel like I've been going crazy lately! I don't know what the deal is. I feel insane. I'm just not...peaceful. Like, there's all this turmoil inside of me and there's just no peace. I'll have a little shred of peace here and there, but as a whole...nope. Nopey nope.

I've started meeting some friends to run early in the morning three days a week. (Getting up early is huge for me, 'cause I am a major night owl.) It's been so nice to breathe in the fresh morning air and get some exercise. I'll even start to feel a little peace. BUT, then I have to get a text from one of the kids. "Mom, what can I eat for breakfast?" "Can I play the Wii?" "My hands hurt. Where is the lotion?" ARGH! I just want to scream! It's, like, can I *please* just have two seconds that I'm not being bombarded with requests?! Can I enjoy my little slice of peace without having to *stop* running and answer asinine questions that I've already answered a billion times?! One daugher has even asked if she can come with me in the mornings. I don't want to be mean, but in my head I'm, like, "HECK to the NO! I want to go BY MYSELF without having to worry about kids!!"

That's just one little example. I feel like there are soooo many things standing in my way, like I'm over here, and Peace is over there, and there's this huge wall up in between us.

The Wall is made up of lots of different things:
