School is almost here.

Summer is closing in to a fall breeze and cooler nights.  School is coming next week and I can not believe that the summer is gone.  Every year I look at our summer and guilt sets in as I realize that I have done nothing I set out to do.  We did not leave town, go hiking, fishing, camping, or swimming.  My poor kids did nothing this summer.  It has been no different every summer as my job is 80% completed in the summer so that does not leave me much time to plan fun events.  I have been trying to get in some fun things this last week before school but I just don't know what to do.  So like usual, I will plan activities after school starts.  I plan on going out of town soon to relax. 
I also can not believe I have not had any time for any projects.  Last week I did stain my front porch and short fence and that is the extent of it.  I look forward to posting again soon with some projects {as they have piled up} but also about some new changes I have in my families life.
First, I have decided to Home school my son and may bring home my other son soon.  I am trying to pull together our schedule and hope to share my findings and what is working for him.  My son has ADHD and other disabilities that I just can not ignore.  I have pretended that school would work for him, but it has not since second grade.  Now in the seventh grade he is struggling and time to bring him home.  It won't be easy but I did choose to be a Mom and some days it is harder than I thought.  I know I will go on a good, long vacation when my last child moves out. For now, it will be hard work ahead.

My other son has had GERT.  I am not sure exactly what that pertains to and do not care for the diagnosis, only that the medication was not improving it, so I decided to try the GAPS diet.  In three days his symptoms had gone and he was eating the food with no complaints.  That was March and now we are having to plan for meals at school.  I will be adding more on my adventures on the GAPS diet soon.

Finally, crafting... It's fun and I love it but it will be taking the back burner.  I still have some projects but they will be infused with our family changes.  Schooling and strict diets suck much of my time now.  I hope you check in with our new adventures and I love to hear about your experiences with homeschooling or if you are considering the Gut and Psychology Syndrome diet.  I have seen some changes I am excited about.
