homeschoolers are...


I have been quite busy getting settled in here at the new house and keeping up with daily life. I am pleased that we have gotten back into a regular schedule with school (after taking 2 weeks off). Annabelle is doing sight words, lots of directional learning (not sure what you call it - I just made that up) and Abby is diligently working through her language arts and is making some neat things in her art class. For extra-curriculars, Annabelle still does dance class (though her blankie stays near her face the whole time and I've contemplated having it sewn into her costume for the recital in May) and Abby will soon be learning sewing from a super awesome friend named Anna who mentions me here. She does beautiful work and I am humbled that she wanted Abby to come hang out and do projects with her. I am afraid that my poor little homeschooler has gotten bored so this will be great for her! I am learning to be diligent to housework and packing my schedule with playdates (for sanity!). We attend MOPS where Abby is helping with Will's age group. We also added a few new pets to our family. They don't really have names but that's okay. One did not live long enough to get one. My sister gave the kids this tank and took the girls to pick out a fish for each of the three kids. Unfortunately, Abby's bit the dust (we tried to return it in a sandwich baggie but they wouldn't take it back). Annabelle's is the white one and Will's is the multi colored darting towards the bottom the the tank. :-) Will is fascinated by them.
Wes will get his cap and gown Saturday and also we'll buy his class ring and graduation announcements. I can hardly contain my enthusiasm!

This post was all over the place, sorry. Drop me a line (or a blog-comment) some time.
