I’ve been reading blogs but forgetting to come back and share with you guys!  Here are a few that I just had to come back and share though.  Hopefully you can grab a cup of something wonderful and join me!

My Hopes for the New Year – For Me and For You from Let Why Lead.  This one may give you a tear in your eye if you are in that kind of mood so don’t say I didn’t warn you.  Wonderful reminder though why we do what we do.  I’m definitely going to be mindful of this through the day and see if my focus is staying in the right place.  I’m thinking not so much this past week, certainly.  Maybe longer.

8 Things I Wish I Had Known When Transitioning from Public School to Homeschool from Life of a Homeschool Mom.  I read so many posts with this general theme, but this one was very comprehensive and I related to it.  It really helped me to feel more confident about the research I’ve done so far.

5 Ways to Homeschool for Free from Hip Homeschooling.  There are a ton of great resources here and since I would like to spend more on experience and less on curriculum, not to mention being on a limited budget, this was a great find.
