Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Welcome to Raising Knights! 

Thank you for stopping by! My name is Christy and I am a homeschooling mom to five boys, tot to teen. I write about a wide variety of things here. You will find my thoughts on and experiences with raising boys (sorry, I don't know anything about raising girls other than from being one), homeschooling, reviews, household tips, and any deals that strike my fancy.

Things have been quiet for a while here, but that's getting ready to change...as soon as I get a new computer. :) We have been waiting on our interest-free loan payment from the government tax refund. I'm writing this post on my husband's "work" computer and it's just not the same. I don't want to upload pictures or anything to it, so I'm limited in what I can do right now.

2012 is a year of big numbers for me.

  • To kick the year off, my baby turned two, which means he's technically not a baby any more, and my second-born son turned 13, which means we now have two teenagers.
  • The next big number will happen in July, when my oldest turns 18, the "official" age of manhood. He will be able to vote in his first presidential election, meaning one more vote for the conservatives!
  • In September, I will be four decades old...yes, the big 4-0. That's all I'm going to say about that.
  • Then the very next month, Papa Bear and I will celebrate our 20th anniversary! It's hard to believe that I have spent half of my life with him. What a roller coaster ride it has been! But definitely one I would do again.
How about you? Do you have any big things happening this year?

Oh! I almost forgot! Be sure to enter the giveaways over at 5 Minutes for Mom. I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate for Child ID & Safety products from To Love and Protect. It's about half way down this page. Have fun!


  1. Congrats on all of your milestones!

    Stopping by from UBP to say hello.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Christy,
    My, this is a big numbers year for you! Congratulations on all fronts! What blessings!! I know what it's like to be without a computer for a long time. It has nearly killed me to not be able to write the things on my heart before. But, thanks to my slightly obsessive-compulsive way about taking notes through out the day while raising these four boys, I've managed. (still, it's hard being computer-less....I get it!) Looking forward to reading more of your posts. I really enjoy them and am always encouraged.

    In Him,

  3. Dropping by from UBP12. I am also a homeschool mom and now homeschooling 3 boys (graduated 2 girls already). My kids are 22, 18, 15, 12, and 5. Nice to meet you.

  4. Stopping by to say hello from the UBP...

  5. Stopping by from the UBP. I love finding other Mamas of boys. I only have two--and I can imagine how LOUD your house is! :)

  6. I found you through UBP 12. My kids aren't there yet, but we will most likely homeschool once they are older. I'm always wanting to read more to better understand the overwhelming number of choices out there!


  7. Hello! Stopping by from UBP. I'm Jen :)- Momma to a 2 yr old boy, and two girls ages 8 and 10. They school at home via cyberschool. Looking forward to exploring your blog.

    Creative and Curious Kids!


Comments are like getting a letter in the mail...a bright spot in my day! Thank you!
