    Infographic: Homeschooling Acronyms Abbreviations There are few things more frustrating to new (or even experienced!) homeschoolers than heading to a social community or forum and landing in a sea of unknown letter combinations. Homeschoolers have certainly created their own online shorthand for the curricula, styles, and general phrases they use over and over. This infographic will help you make sense of the most common acronyms and abbreviations you may encounter on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and online communities.

    Parties, family, friends, baking, wrapping, shopping, errands, chaos.
    Tired Mom/Dad, crabby kids, music, lights, more smells, too busy.
    Schoolwork is kicked to the side because of other things during the holiday season.

    At our house, we tried to do school through our holiday season and boy o' boy it did not work. AT ALL.
    Next year, I adjusted our homeschool to be 9 weeks on and 2 weeks off. I worked it so that it we took a week off at Thanksgiving(head to Grandma's for most of the week) and then 2 weeks off at the end of December. There is too much family, too much baking, too many get-togethers with friends for us to concentrate on school.

    I no longer felt guilty for missing school or being behind. My boys didn't do a crap job on their work because their minds and our holidays stayed as stress-free as holidays can be.

    Do you have a harder time homeschooling during the holidays?
    And what do you do about it? Tell us in the comments!

    Three years ago, at 7:30pm on a Tuesday evening, I received *the* phone call that changed everything: my parents had been in a serious motorcycle accident while on vacation in Hawaii. The neurologist on the phone informed me that they were both in the ICU with brain injuries and extensive physical injuries and I should make immediate travel plans. I literally dropped everything and got on the first available plane to Hawaii. My father, who was in a coma, never woke up and passed away nine days later. My mother was transferred home via air ambulance after 17 days. She spent two months in the hospital, followed by a LOT of physical therapy, ...

    Ok, this week we are not doing a "poll" really but asking you guys to tell it like it is!
    Holidays are here which means baking. I don't care how or what you are celebrating this time of year, religious or secular.... at some point, baking is involved.

    Cookies seem to be the #1 thing. Some for the office, a cookie exchange, bake some to hand out to the neighbors, etc.

    I do all of the above. Hubby has a cookie exchange at work. We gift plates of goodies to all our neighbors AND I make cookies with the little kids to give parents. I am always experimenting with different kinds of cookies!

    My FAV and easiest one to make, esp. in a pinch is a Cranberry Oatmeal one!
    So, if you don't mind.... would you share you FAV cooking recipe!
    Put it in the comment section!

    Cranberry Oatmeal(Quick n Easy!)

    1 package of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
    1/2 cup white chocolate chips
    1/2 cup dried cranberries

    Prepare according to package directions, add the white chocolate chips and cranberries, mix well.
    Drop 1 heaping tsp. onto baking sheet. Bake 8-9 min. @ 350*. They come out great, very pretty with the holiday red and white.

    You can make these with a standard oatmeal cookie recipe as well and then add the extras. Might have to add more of the extras if your oatmeal recipe makes more than 30-36 cookies. I just am in a hurry or have to make them last minute. I always keep supplies to make these in a pinch.
