Tips and Tricks Tuesday- Features

Today we successfully completed our second day of school for the 2013/14 academic term!  Only 170 more school days to go until next summer!  When you're a home school mom, you look forward to the first day of school and the last day of school.  It's highly rewarding to teach your own kids, but it's also a full time job.  The first day of school provides a new beginning and fresh start that we all need, but, oh, that last day is a big sigh of relief and sense of accomplishment.  Here's a to a great school year, with a little blogging on the side, for me and my kiddos!

* If you're new here, welcome to Lewisville!  Today is Tips and Tricks Tuesday! It's a good day to visit here.  I like finding simple solutions for everyday living and sharing some of my favorite tips with you all!  You can find most of these tips on my  Pinterest Tips and Tricks board, where I'd also love to have you follow along.  There's always facebook and twitter too.  If you want to pin these tips on your own board, just click {source} below each picture.  It will take you to the original source of the tip, and it's always best to pin from the original source.

Today, I'll be featuring some of the links from last weeks party.  These are some of my favorites!
