Although he was achieving good results, he wasn't reaching his full potential because his love for learning had been destroyed & hence his grades were steadily declining.

Completely failed by the system, he hated school, was always tired & homework time was a major frustration for both of us. He was severely frustrated & quickly heading to become yet another ADHD statistic.

Liebster Blog Award

Who would have ever thought I’d take up blogging at this stage of my life. As a student I always hated creative writing & could never pin my thoughts to paper. But these days blogging has become an integral part of my life. It has become my outlet when frustrated & bouncing board for ideas when confused. Because I have so often felt alone in this struggle with my, I decided to share these experiences so other new home schooling moms could benefit from the knowledge & resources I have found during my hours of research.
Although my husband’s known Desiré for many years and I have met her parents and sister many years ago, I only “met” her via hubby’s facebook when we started considering homeschooling last year because of Misha’s struggles at school. She sent the very first curriculum suggestions I checked out for our boys.
Since then her regular positive comments & suggestions on my blog & facebook posts have been a source of motivation to keep me going whenever I felt insecure & doubtful. For that I am truly grateful. Thank you very much.
Thank you very much for this nomination, Desiré.smiley-7
The word “Liebster” is a German word which means “dearest”. The Liebster Blog award is given to up and coming blogs with 200 or less followers.
The way this award works is to link back to the nominator, in this case that would be Desiré.
The next thing is to share 5 other inspiring blogs ~ all of whom have less than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blogs and let them know that they are nominated for this cute award.
THEN... post the award on your blog and enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling of friendship shared over the miles!

My five nominees are:

      1. Karen’s Clan
      2. Under an English Sky
      3. Loving Learning
      4. Back to Ancient Ways
      5. Our Homeschool Escapades

  1. I have always enjoyed writing, but never thought I would actually start a blog. I finally did, and I really enjoy it, too! I even took an intro to blogging course and a Blogging 101 course from It helped me figure things out. I still have a long way to go, but at least I am headed in the right direction now. LOL

    Congrats on the cute award!
