Oh Honey

Recently I went to a local pet store to get some natural pet food. We have a long hair chihuahua and a new puppy German Shepard. As I approached the check out line I noticed a huge jar oft beautiful, delicious honey. Not just any honey, natural honey. I bought it and was very happy the jar was only $10.
The benefits of honey are endless from the inside out. Honey can help muscles before, during and after exercise. Honey can enhance sexual libido( hooray) lol. It is perfect for the skin specially my worse nightmare acne scars. Here is a few recipes made with honey of course. For acne scars 2 tbs of honey and 2 tbs of lemon can clear up the skin. Lemons have vitamin c which is very good for the skin. 2 tbs of honey and 1 tbs of baking soda creates a paste to exfoliate your skin. Do it twice a week. 2 tbs of honey and tbs of olive oil put the mixture on your face for three minutes. Get a hot steamy towel and let it rest on your face. The steam will remove scaring , then wash your face. Pour half a cup of honey in the blender with a cucumber blend together really well. Cucumber is very good to tighten the pores. Apply on the face for a couple if minutes then clean the face with a wash cloth. These can be done daily except the exfoliant.

Homeschooling finally a dream come true.

Ever since our daughter was 2 yrs old I've been buying her activities books and crayons. I even got her a desk. Almost every afternoon we sat down and sang out abc's we read stories and she did some coloring And painting. I was once reading an article about homeschooling and how these children always scored higher on tests that the children that actually where in school. I asked my husband about homeschooling our daughter. He answered with a no it is too hard to do it. I kept buying books and doing mini lessons at home. Last year my husband got deployed to Irak and I went to Florida with the children. We stood at my moms house. My daughter started pre K. Omg it broke my heart that rainy day that I left my beloved daughter in a tiny yellow school. I saw the teacher yelling at the children. That really bothered me, but at the same time I wanted her to learn and the big word " socialized ". after my husband got back, we came back to our duty station. It was going to be her second school only in pre k. Here it was worse. Teachers seem impatient and rude. Kids were bullies and some not even old enough to defend themselves. After seeing so many things, I felt that my calling got stronger And I decided to google homeschooling. I pray and still praying about it. So far I've gain some knowledge and are getting ready to begin in September. The curriculum that I would love to try Heart of Dakota with Little hearts for his glory. Will give a complete review after I order it. Out 16 month old son will also be part of our homeschooling. Thank God for giving me a supporting husband. I Will keep praying so that God gives us the wisdom to do it. I want to leave the legacy to our children to follow the lord.
