Truly Amazing...

We are all adjusting well to our journey at home. Getting things we need done daily, taking much needed breaks and trying to have as much fun as we can in between.

Each day I stand amazed at how well the kids are all doing....

Landon is doing well in his 8th grade year. WOW one year away from high school. How can that be? He is doing well in all his areas, since the higher grades he could really care less for school, but he gets what he know needs to be done, done. Some days are harder than others, but hey it happens. The lit/writing class he takes at the church is not his fave, but I think it is a good thing for him to get to do.

Joshua is a natural learner...both boys are pretty much self led, we have the DVD's for them to have if needed. Thankfully both boys can take their agendas for the day and work thru it all....they come to me when needed and help each other out as well.

Chloe is amazing! I owe SOOOO much to her Kinder teacher at the Christian Academy last year...She totally gave her the start she needed with her reading and everything else! Chloe is a great learner.....she is so independent, I still think she needs to be right by me, but some days she will beg to do her work in her room like the boys get to.....I let her but still try to keep her close:) The other day Joshua was doing his History on the trampoline, Chloe asked if she could....I told her soon:)

I hope to now that the weather is nicer, to plan picnics to the park and do our schooling outside some...should be fun. I truly enjoy the no home work at night, and the too early mornings and the freedom we have.

Very Blessed!

Making our way..

We had a blast going to the home school day at Sea World in San Antonio. The kids really enjoyed feeding and petting the dolphins, it really was their favorite part. Our hotel was right on the river walk and we enjoyed a nice walk and dinner on the walk. We also visited the caverns in George Town. Very neat!!

Schooling is going well...I am having a hard time on a few areas. One is am I doing this right? I feel I am not giving each of the kids what they need from me. They are all doing well in all their areas...doing great on the quizzes and tests that come with the material. I know that says a lot. I just need to iron out a few things in a few areas and I know it will be ok.

We have only been schooling a little over a month...We have only just begun. I know there is still tons to learn with what to do and what not to do. It will all be ok...right?
