It's been awhile

I have been thinking about this blog for awhile. I wasn't sure how to get back into blogging since I've not written in awhile. I have taken a break from sewing and selling. It just wasn't working out the way I'd hoped it would. I've not given up, just waiting for us to move. We've also been fairly busy the last few months.

I took a Space A flight from Hawaii to the East Coast and spent 2 months with my family in my home state. It was nice to see everyone that I hadn't seen in a year. As much as I love living in Hawaii, I will be so happy to be closer to my extended family.

We move in about 5 months. We have known where we'll be going for a couple months now, but I haven't announced it to many people. We'll be buying a house around that location about a year after we move. I must say that I can not wait to finally buy a house and settle and not move again! I may enjoy seeing new places, but packing and unpacking is just not fun. Thankfully, we will be going to a place that we already know. The best part is we'll be 4 hours from home instead of a whole country and half of the pacific ocean away!

At the end of June, I took a big step for my future and enrolled in Penn Foster High School to be able to earn my High School Diploma. Until that day, I barely let anyone know I didn't have a diploma or GED. I'm all finished with the courses I had to take. Thankfully, 16 of my 23 credits were transferred, so I had pretty easy classes, with the exception of physical science. That class definitely took my much longer to complete! I'll have another post about why it was important for me to get my diploma. It was my personal narrative from one of my classes. I just have to edit it to take out names, since I don't post anyone's names for privacy reasons.

We start our next homeschool year on Monday. I officially have a 5th and 3rd grader! I will also be doing pre-k learning activities with Ninja. I have been planning and printing like crazy since I completed my classes.

I'll be working on posting on this blog more regularly, too. I just need to brainstorm some ideas of topics to talk about.
