Quick Update

I never realized how hard it would be for me to find the time to blog. I plan to find a way to at least do a monthly recap. I want to use the blog not only as a way to inspire others, but as a scrapbook for the memories our family is creating during our education time together.

Ladybug is on the move now, and she likes to sit right in the middle of the kitchen table while we do our work. This of course, slows us down a bit. I think it's time for Dad to get out the booster seat for her, since she's mastered getting out of her high chair.

Hard to believe that in a few short months our family size will increase to 6 members. The pregnancy is going great. I am extremely lucky with how easy it's actually been. I do worry how I will efficiently educate 4 kids, who are all on different levels. With God, all things are possible. It is going to take a lot of planning and dedication on my part. Can't forget the biggest part: PRAYER.

I am finalizing our curriculum choices for next year and I am really excited for what the year will bring. I am hoping to be able to make it to some homeschool conventions this year, but most of them happen to fall right around the time when I am due.

School is in full swing around here, after a long break. We decided to take the entire month of December off. It was a much needed break. I love homeschooling year round, as it gives us the freedom to take time off as needed. We will take another break when baby arrives to adjust and bond with our new little man. Monkey Man was so excited when he learned that the baby was a boy. You could tell that Dad was relieved too.

I took some pictures with my phone and hope to upload them later and write another post, showcasing our week. I got a new fancy camera for Christmas and keep forgetting to use it. I need another pair of arms to help me out around here.
